I agree I think its a brilliant idea. The teams which give their all against the tops sides and only just get pipped are rewarded, whereas getting hammered gets you sweet FA . The only thing it does do is when the top sides do get beat they still usually get a point. I think it would be much more valuable if they moved to three points for a win instead of two and kept the bonus point.


It already is 3 points for a win in the Championships!!!!!!!! (2 for a draw and 1 for losing by 12 or less)

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

No it doesn't it was just an example. It suits teams that can't actually win a game. If a team doesn't win a game all season in theory they can still stay up which IMO is a joke.


In theory yes, but in practice very unlikely. The idea I guess is to keep games competitive, which it does. I know that watching your team's games when they stuff a team by 40+ points may be intertesting to you as a supporter, but not very much to anyone else watching. Usually, the team that wins most matches finishes higher up the league than those that lose the most, regardless of bonus points.

Yes you are right distant. But you also can see where I'm coming from too. As for teams getting hammered every week I hate it personally when my team puts 50+ on teams its boring to watch really unless its against one of the big five 😄😄😄. But whether we agree on it or not like the play offs its here to stay.
