Has the regionality of the various teams held them back then do you think? What was good for national competition then is not so good now for attracting the right kind of sponsor?
I believe that the regionality and (friendly) rivalry is great for the competition among Conti teams - but very much bad for attracting a large-enough sponsor for a pro team.
No matter which of the Conti teams would step up, it would always be seen (in Norway) as "the Stavanger team"/"the Lillehammer team"/"the Grimstad team" etc.
