Why would winning yesterday be bigger than winning the league leaders shield , if it was for promotion to super league then it would ,but it doesn,t,

Because like it or not thats what is more recognised by the rfl when they look at sucess on the field.

Dydo.

Ask the players, the media, the rfl, the cubs bod, our opposition, our bank managers etc etc which is the most important.

Don't get me wrong,I'm not in agreement with the format but we all know the crack. It's all about the grand final. If it was all about the league shield fev wouldn't have won it 3 years on the bounce

how can you say that we finished top on merit

If we tossed it off through the season an just won a couple of days out ,im sure the difference in home attendance reciepts wouldnt impress our bank manager ,or the fans who watch week in week out.

Winning a grand final would mean we would have had to have at least finished in the top six so one would have thought 'tossing it off' was a non-starter???

Like I said, - not that anyone should take any notice of my ramblings at all, BUT - ask the players, coach or chairman which they think is BY FAR the most important?

I know the answer to that question by the way!!!! :(

Ah ! The importance of punctuation.

The exact opposite of ...

"How can you say that ? We finished top on merit."

ha ha , I heard a few thousand shouting champions before the game yesterday ,they know the true meaning of the word ,not the rfl , footballs the biggest sport in this country an they know the true meaning,and criteria for champions ,an it isn,t some lottery at the end of a hard season ,the bent formats to blame, not our differing thoughts on the matter.

Are you kidding me?

The champions are determined by the winners of the Grand Final, were not champions because we got the minor premiership.

The play off system appears very popular with SkY, THE RFL and the clubs tho Dydo.

I agree with you here. There is more emphasis put on the playoffs compared with a full seasons graft to get to, and stay top. Up until last year there wasn't even any prize money for the league leaders title - all the emphasis (word of the day) is now on the GF. Perhaps not as we would like it, but others do. That's how the competition is configured and we've failed to win it. Gutted, morngy and in a proper strop!

Fair enough.

If you think were on the only sport (or governing body) to use the play offs to determine the winners of a league, then take a look around.

Nearest to us is the RFU, they use the play off system to determine who the Champions are in the Premiership.

Similarly, sports such as British basketball & netball also use a play off system.

If we go further afield, sports such as American Football, Ice Hockey, Basketball, Baseball & RL in Aus use the play off system to find a winner.

So its not just these crazy guys at the RFL who invented it to ###### you off, its a legitimate way of determining a champion.
