Its hard to believe this, but the roosters are just 2 competition points away from 5th place! Sure, the F/A wont allow it unless they have a huge win but its very surprising to see that figure considering the start of their season. My big question is, the 8 was introduced to keep fans from losing interest in the season. That was in the days when their comp seemed to be a little lop sided. Now that there is much more even playing field and technically 2 wins could see you move from last into the top 6, is it time to reduce the number of teams in the finals? Perhaps to say top 6? teams 1 and 2 getting the first week off? I think its a joke that a team who lose more than they win can make the 8 and in today's comp you will keep the interest right through. I believe that a top 6 would have the same effect the top 8 had just 8 years ago.
