True no matter the level. There is rarely more than a handful of guys that are really likely to win week-in week-out. The rest are either on their way up or on their way down. The top half is the competition, the bottom half is filler. It's harsh, but reality.
What people gotta realize, however, is that in any national series, even the guys at the back have a LOT of talent. Almost all of them have given up everything for this.
