Do you think the premier league sides are devaluing the facup?
Some major sides are not putting their full team out? i mean this is not cricket ok?

It's a sad reflection on football today, but it is what it is
these days the top teams have a lot to worry about, the PL, the CL, not only are these trophies equally if not more prestigious these days, BUT there is a lot more money involved in both of those competitions and the clubs have owners and shareholders to please, also with advancements in football, players have become softer and are more injury prone, and would rather take time off then play through injury
20 - 30 years ago, you'd have never seen the likes of Vinnie Jones and Tony Adams being rested or stretchered off, that's because they CARED and had PASSION
in a way you cannot blame the big clubs these days, they need the money and the fixture list is already congested, the managers are just doing what they need to, to protect their own jobs and players
sadly the FA Cup isn't taken seriously until the Quarter Finals anymore

That's obvious when West Ham fields a team of kids.
