> Servette-Geneve isn't in Swiss Elite League, but in 1st division!
Swiss Elite League = NLA
"1st division" = NLB
Why this fascination with "[insert national adjective here] Elite League"? Call it what the locals call it! NLA or LNA depending on whether you are from Schweiz or Suisse or Svizzera. Nothing wrong with saying "he plays in the Swiss NLA". A little education to the public as to what NLA actually is would do no harm.
