Problem is Mince, is if you end up with what you are proposing then it would be an even smaller pool of candidates who could be competitive. It would be between those 5 sides (at a push), and the rest would be made up of relative minnows and every match up until the semi finals would be 3-0's, 4-0's etc.
By including other sides who have finished 2nd or 3rd in stronger leagues you are making it a better competition. Would you deny Barcelona for example but wish to allow say Dundalk straight into the first round simply because they were champions of Ireland?

Both the champions league and European cup were and are messed up, for me that's because they don't have an open draw and have seeded teams. If they didn't do that you would see more smaller teams progressing, however, they don't want that they want big teams and tv revenue. So basically goes back to being a money game

Your still not getting my point,Barcelona never won their league Dundalk or whoever did..
When it was the European Cup much like now the cream came to the top and normally the best side were there about...These 6 group games are meaningless as I've stated earlier you know which two are going to go through from most groups.

I am getting your point. I'll say it again - would you rather Dundalk were in these early rounds or Barcelona? Or to put it another way, who is replacing these minnows in your ideological Champions League? Ironically most of these minnows ARE champions of their own leagues!
