If i had to agree with you we would both be wrong
I can't see clubs voting to play on (although I'd prefer that) when finances are considered.
Apart from any testing what other costs to clubs is there apart from players wages which as we are usually reminded these aren't as high as L1 / Championship standard ?
There would be minimal staff at grounds , no stewards , no policing costs , no outlay for food and drinks etc.

So if the majority of L2 clubs want to play the season out then we don't need play offs
Well there would still be playoffs just at the end of 46 games. Cant see the majority wanting to play on, presuming there is a time limit by which games must be played.

It doesnt say what would happen if the playoffs are planned but curtailed tho? And say they play the semis but are not able to play the final. We are in the final v Northampton. Do we go up as we finished higher, or do Chelteham go up as they finished 4th even though they are out the play offs....

Testing costs are huge and clubs would have to un-furlough the players. Financially ruinous to play on, even more so if you gave nothing to play for or you will be promoted/ not relegated if you don't play. That's 15 teams at least out of 24.

Yep, plus you have the likes of Grimsby that are refusing to play without fans. And the clubs that have released many of their players.

Dale Vince has just confirmed that the league 2 season has ended, with only one club voting to play on.

Oh yes please. Send them down with obnoxious git Wallace. It's just a shame Westley isn't still there to go down with them.
Westley should have said that Stevenage had the potential to be a Conference side ! Championship you're having a larf ! :ROFLMAO:
