The Melbourne Cup

Watching yet another entertaining Derby on Friday night I couldn't help wondering that maybe it was time to introduce the Football equivalent of the Bledisloe Cup.

A Cup within a League.

And to the winner of the Melbourne Cup, decided over the three League Derbies, goes the spoils.

Presented at the end of the three game series, it would add fuel to an already passionate affair.

And would determine who were the Kings of Melbourne.

We're looking for meaningful ways to create our own "events" seems to me this would be would have real meaning real quick.

With the scores locked at 1-1 the next game even in Season 1 of Melbourne Derbies becomes The Decider.

All we'd need is a name.
