Hi guys, This is part of a post in the forum: Argentina (pool D); you can take a look in that forum for the previous of this post. We were having a discussion on how Argentina should be included in the 6N or the 3N, how Pumas deserve it, and how economical interests remain putting a foot stepping onto Argentinian's wills. I had an idea (the answer to user 'ferenzo' that I include here) about a new tournament with American nations. Yes yes, this is very difficult, but please read it and post your comments. Please when doing it, think about the benefits of rugby as a sport, not in your individual team interest's Thanks QUOTE(ferenzo @ Sep 11 2007, 10:05 PM) Argentina, have play the 6 nations at home in spain !!!!! The other teams in america (usa-canada-urugay) are inferior in level to play against Argentina in a tournament Absolutely true! but if europeans and 3N guys keep closing the door to Arg, we cannot wait 20 years to make it happen. We loose playing a tournament with usa canada and urug, but only in the short term. In the long term we gain a lot, likewise the other 3 countries will (look Italy how they improved). Don't be selfish chamigo! Actually is the same short term disadvantage for the 6N or 3N what they use as excuse (de acuerdo, les estamos demostrando que estamos a su nivel) but now only at economic level (it's all about money). In that regard, Can and Usa has loads of money and can help, in an indirect way, to improve the institucionalization (o como joraca se escriba en ingles) of an argentinian professional leage, and also grow a new tournament that in 10 years can be at 6N level. Easy as I put it. Canada and USA demonstrated that with a little more professionalism and experience they can be a good competitive team. Uruguay as well are good enough to start. If you want all teams to be 'All blacks' level to start a tournament, it doesn't make sense at all. You want your players playing in your country. If we do not develop profesionalism in ARgentina our good players will remain playing in europe for ever. From an argentinian (as country, not as team) economic point of view, you also want the revenues of the tournament to benefit your economy, not Spain's or Holland's (who also offered to be home for Arg in a possible 7N). Even more things to say (this is turning to long, but I really feel that this American 4N is a good alternative) from the rugby community point of view this will help develop this lovely sport, helping 3 other nations to grow at high level, and making it less boring to the people: with this I mean that a 7N is very complicated for the schedule, while a 3N is turning too boring playing each other million times. I've read this several times in southern hemysphere's rugby forums. To finish, what about this: 6N - 3N - 4N and at the end, a tournament among the 3 champions (a 3B stating for the 3 Best teams), every year. That woukd be great, and you will see Pumas playing this tournament for years until one of the other 3 americans reach our level and beat us. I really expect comments from you guys about this.
