Extra Edinburgh v Glasgow game would fill stadium
What's more important, the Heineken Cup or the RaboDirect Pro12? In other words, who has done better this season, Edinburgh or Glasgow?
Can I make one request? I want Glasgow and Edinburgh to play each other one more time, at Murrayfield, all guns blazing. I'm not sure the argument is settled yet, Scottish Rugby should put on one more glorious fixture.
In life, there are ups and downs, good and bad and yin and yang; not the pandas currently unable to mate in Edinburgh Zoo, but the opposing life forces the Chinese believe exist in the universe.

In rugby, the world has exactly the same opposing forces in the shape of leagues and cups. After a dismal Six Nations, one Scottish team, Glasgow, is doing well in the league in fourth place and could well be in a play-off place.
But Edinburgh stormed the barricades on Saturday and beat Toulouse in front of a record crowd to reach the semi-finals of the Heineken Cup.
Can I confess? I didn't go to the game but watched it on TV like a nervous kitten unable to sit still. Arise Sir Michael Bradley as that was a game of sheer magnificence.
Edinburgh have a simple smash-up game that combines pick and go with one out runners and then they move it wide. Sometimes they go wide straight from set piece to get the ball to Tim Visser in two passes, but directness and pride are the orders of the day.
When Edinburgh last beat Toulouse, in 2003 at Meadowbank, a crowd of 3,000 turned up to watch Nathan Hines, Brendan Laney and Marcus Di Rollo do the business. A year ago I would not have predicted that nearly 40,000 would come to Murrayfield to watch the same fixture.
And the bite that was there nine years ago came again as Allan Jacobsen, Ross Ford, David Denton and crew bared their teeth.
It was probably the biggest 'club' game in Scottish rugby history. I can't overstate how important that win was.
Glasgow, at the other end of the M8, have shown much more consistency in the league. They have a 'Warrior Nation' of fans and there's a buzz you can see among the players.
There are probably two players for each position but now they have a scrum that destroys most teams and, like Edinburgh, a simple game-plan that deviates from one pass smash-up and then move wide to their three pod system.
Could Glasgow attract nearly 40,000 fans? Not at Firhill as it doesn't have that many seats, but let's just leave that question hanging.
The grass roots of the game are greener in Edinburgh as next year there will be no Glasgow teams in the top flight of our domestic amateur game. Speaking of which, in my opinion, we make a daft mistake in making that top amateur league smaller.
'Amateur' club rugby is about lots of games and beers at the bar and making money, not trying to create six or eight elite clubs.
But back to Glasgow and Edinburgh, both teams play simple rugby. Hand on heart I'm not sure that's what Scotland do at times.
But as I sat there watching Edinburgh I wondered: what is more important? Is a league and its consistency of performance a better indicator of success than the knock-out blows delivered by Edinburgh and their clashes with Toulouse and before that Racing Metro 92 in Paris?
My opinion? Success in the Heineken Cup is more important than in the league and always will be while a Scottish team can come bottom of the league and still qualify for the Cup which will always provide the bigger moments.
A league with no relegation is never as serious as a winner-take-all game in a knock-out cup.
Have Glasgow or Edinburgh been more successful? Come on Scottish Rugby, set up another extra game, pick a sunny day, open the bars and we will fill the stadium for you and winner takes all. Go on.
