Final 5???

Postby Crazy Dazz on Tue Sep 15, 2015 12:00 am

Doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

One of the problems with the final 4, is that it often seemed a bit redundant.
1st plays 2nd in the SF, then loser goes through PF for a replay in the GF.

BUT now they seem to have made it worse...

And the stupid thing is that the minor premiers can now get TWO byes.
Whichever of East or West Perth makes the GF, they will have played 4 finals in four weeks. Subi have played only 2.

The 5 system is total garbage.

I'll forget for a moment that I'm a Subi loyalist, and focus on the system.

All it does is enable the teams 2-5 to struggle it out whilst the minor premiers walk into a GF.

Utter garbage of a system.

And they still need to do something to avoid a repeat of the Muppett Babies fiasco!

Although that is related to the alignment process, it became an issue because the 1st week of the WAFL finals was pulled forward.

Yep, still utter Garbage.

90% of the time, the GF is just a repeat of the 2nd SF.
So when Subi plays Souths in the GF, South will have played every week. Subi will have played 1 game with 2 byes.
