I've always thought...why are there play-off games to get promoted, but not to get relegated?

The Championship, League 1 and League 2 all have playoff zones and finals, but none of them have that sort of layout at the bottom of the table.

In my opinion, it would make the last week of the season even more exciting than it already is.

The fans would be out in force to cheer on their team and encourage them to try and stay up.

Rather than just hearing so and so got relegated, you would hear so and so got relegated but now it's up to which ever two teams to keep their place in the certain league. 

However, I can remember a few seasons when it went down to the final day to see who was and wasn't getting relegated. If there were play-offs at the bottom then this nail bitting day won't happen, there will just be a final game to see which team will stay up.

I believe that it would be a good idea, and the pros outweighs the cons.

What do you think??
