You're right. In fact I would say having play-offs in non-league makes no sense. I can understand it in the pro game because there is the lure of a Wembley final and extra TV coverage. But at our level the argument that the play-offs are lucrative is not true. The league take 25 per cent of gate money and the rest is split 37.5 per cent to each club. So, if you are at home, you need to treble your normal attendance just to match what you normally take through the turnstiles. Does having play-offs boost interest in the regular season? I see little evidence of that.
