Cups and Finals and Leagues n …

Time for footy fans to debate how to have the finals, which trophy is better, the prem or the cham, etc etc.

One thing really needs to stop though.  What’s with people saying “Australia wants GFs”. 

Ok, the other thing that has to stop is people saying “First past the post, like the rest of the world”. 

Something seems annoying about people speaking for “Australia” … how can you say that when there are people out there “Australian” I presume, saying they don’t want a cup final?  Talking about a consensus that doesn’t exist. 

And on the other hand, first past the post isn’t the only system used in the world.  Korea, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay and the US don’t.

My thinking has’t changed too much … prem and cham A+, cham A, prem A …

where a playoffs really gains cred is when a balanced home and away series is not available … and right now we don’t have a balanced home and away schedule.  but we could have if we really wanted one …

At some point a bunch of jammy chancers is gonna drift into the playoffs at number 6 and get a bit of luck and form, and defend their way to a championship.  and fair play to them.  it won’t be the end of the world if they do.  noone is saying that the champs league should be scrapped cos chelsea won it last year.  nobody said the world cup needed to be scrapped after a workmanlike italy won it in 2006.
