I certainly do. The reason we had the old playoffs in the 60s/70s was because the season fixtures were lopsided. Play one another home and away and everything is fair.

Even football has playoffs though which I always argue with football fans. A team could finish 6th in the Championship, 20 points behind 3rd and be promoted to the PL.

As a fan I disagree with them for the reasons I've said BUT we all know the rules at the start so it is what it is.

28 pieces of silver ware in 26 years of the full time professional superleague era, no one else comes close. Whats alarming is that we will have a stronger squad next year.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.
Welsby-Dodd-Simms-Eaves-Rizzelli, not Eastmond...the future is coming.

I think all us Saints fans need to be banned from this forum so you can just get on with the Band Name Game thread.

Also to add that the difference in Football is even if the title winner runs away with the league and wins it early there are other things for the TV to focus on, the battle for the European places and Relegation which in Football can mean financial oblivion the drop in money is that big. In SL the interest would have fizzled out with a few weeks of the season to run.

I personally think the current playoff format is fair, Saints got a week off and a home playoff (and meant to have had a days extra rest) Salford and Leeds ended the season in form and got further than the league table suggested, no complaints from me.
