    After the Byes have been taken into consideration.

    Team Pt

    Storm 30
    Dragons 26
    Broncos 26
    Bulldogs 26
    Sharks 22
    Sea Eagles 22
    Knights 22
    Cowboys 20
    Tigers 20
    Raiders 20
    Panthers 18
    Warriors 16
    Eels 16
    Roosters 14
    Rabbitohs 4

    It really leaves stuff all room for error. We absolutely must demolish the bunnies this week and improve our F/A.

    Bunnies AWAY = Win

    Panthers HOME = Win

    Eels AWAY = Win

    BYE = Points already taken into account

    Knights AWAY = Lose

    Bunnies HOME = Win

    Dogs HOME = Loss

    Storm AWAY = Loss

    That's my prediction which will leave us on 30 points. Where on the table will that leave us though?? As Mata said, we need to be in the top 5 to have any chance in the finals.

    Thats not a fair table at all, as some teams have played more games than others

    I used the finals calculator, and can't see us being any higher up than 7th, and playing The Dragons at OKI Jubilee. Better than Melbourne at The Graveyard I guess.

    Disco, I'm not sure I understand.

    I have taken into account the points from bye's. Effectively what I am stating is that all teams have had their byes and this is where they stand after the points from the remaining bye's have been taken into account.

    What does the number of games played have to do with it?

    there is more potential for some teams to get points than others clon - ie some teams can achieve another 14 points, others 16.

    Neither table is fair as such as you cant guarentee a win or a loss in any game

    we are thru 18 rounds clon

    Manly have played 17 times with one bye

    Melboure 16 times with 2 byes

    by adding our second bye, we get 2 extra points yet will have played 1 more game than melboure

    the only time the comp is a true relection is at the end of round 26, though thankfully all that will change next year with 16 teams

    I think 32 probable and 34 possible. Dont think we will lose all 3 against Knights, Dogs and Storm. Gotta pick up all other games though.
    Hoping this is then enough for top 6 spot...

    I think we will finish on 30 or 32 points. Probably 7th, maybe 6th. It sounds obvious but we need to lift a lot to make an impact this finals.

    I fear the Eels game at slime stadium. Once a season is finished and the pressure off some weaker teams start to play good football and peform better. They thrive in knocking off some of the tall poppies.

    No gimmes there and whilst I think we will make the semis it will be hard to get near the four.

    PS Fluffy - were you on the grog when you posted the comment highlighted by Sue. Can't work out what the heck you are trying to say????? :cop:

    CW - i was replying to the disco post stating that the table isnt fair.

    As in once the byes have been taken into account (shown in the table posted at the start of the thread) some teams can earn a potential 14 points, others 16.

    Apparently this is wrong and all teams can earn a potential 16 points on top of the table posted at the start of this thread according to Sue

    The mistake I made was to think it would be basic comprehension that we are takling about the table posted in the orignal post in this thread.

    fair enough re table mixups etc.

    the basic point Clontago is making is that there is definitely an absolute advantage having a bye up your sleeve.It is not a 2 point advantage but it is a certian 2 points versus a possible 2 points.

    eg round 22 -we get 2 points,sharks must beat warriors at Ericsson and all teams who have already had 2 byes must earn their points as well or we advance in relation to them.

    agree sue - thats why i say neither table is fair when trying to work out a teams relevant position before/after byes. As either one gives an advantage to some teams.
