Top 10 is the new Top 4
So they can then play the SL the following year, perhaps finish above 2 or 3 of the 12 teams, but because they're not a founding member get chucked out of it again. Sounds really fair that.
Isn't that what would happen in the champions league think about what you're saying. They would get knocked out of the group stages or knockout stages of the CL, and not be in it again next season due to not finishing near the top 4. In fact it did happen, one off events should be rewarded, but you can't continuously reward a one off event.
