Coverage is superb and I get to see his games live almost every other week on the internet. writing has been on the wall for a fully professional championship for a number of seasons now and with removal of playoffs it has effectively been turned into a procession with the only incentive to avoid relegation.

Quite agree - the scrapping of playoffs was a huge mistake. The majority of games are already pretty meaningless, unless your club are near the bottom. OK, there's a bit of money for finishing higher up the table, but not enough to make much difference.
