A win is a win. Has it ever mattered if you wrap the game up by halftime or win in the 79th minute?
Does it matter if you win by one point or 99 points? No. Never has

This is no different. A win is a win

Bonus point for tries scored from run arounds…

Having five results is more complex than three results by definition

The simplest solution is 2,1,0 and is already in place

You’ve mentioned that a few times but I’ll go back to my Storm example from this season

In Round 7 they crushed the Warriors 50-6

In Round 8 they played the Roosters and were down by 10 with 10 minutes to go. They scored two tries to level the scores. Then the Roosters kicked a field goal in the 78th minute to go one up and Papenhuyzen responded in the 79th forcing the game to golden point

The Storm won the game

If you can explain to me why a brilliant hard fought golden point win against the Roosters is worth less than a 40 point flogging without resorting to “they couldn’t win in 80 minutes” you’ll win me over

If that’s all you’ve got – and it’s all you’ve produced so far – then it’s just objectively pointless

The Roosters win was more worthy in every metric possible other than the minute it was achieved in

Win loss draw… the five results are your construct

Bonus point for shot at goal with a bucket of sand instead of kicking tee…

Bonus points for black footy boots…

4,3,2,1,0 is not more simple than 2,1,0

Fool's gold: The NRL must change its competition points

80 minute game three possible results win loss draw
90 minute game three possible results win loss draw

There are no new results

Giving three points for some wins and four points for others is less accurate

It makes no difference and is a waste of time

Fool's gold: The NRL must change its competition points

Seeing as draws are a much more rare result, it’s only fair that they should be worth more points

I say two for a win, six for a draw

I don’t like it either but there’s not five distinct results…

That’s why I used “ “

You conveniently didn’t respond to the main point that in this scenario the Broncos would overtake the Dragons completely because of a game they lost

You’ve mentioned fairness about ten times

If it’s about completeness, it completely doesn’t matter

Fool's gold: The NRL must change its competition points

It’s not an anomaly

Win = 2 points
Loss = 0 points
Draw = 1 point

That’s the way it’s always been – how is it an anomaly ?

Gotta get to golden point first champ 😛

“It’s silly trying to keep everyone happy”

Also

“Let’s introduce a point for teams that lose in golden point to keep them happy”

I say bring in bonus points for players having their socks pulled up…

Only an example I don’t think it would / should happen

'Tis the season to be silly: Let's talk NRL expansion

Would you rather see your club merge, fold or relocate

I’m a Bulldogs fan. I think I’d prefer the Dogs to become the Perth or Brisbane or Wellington Bulldogs than become say the Cronulla-Canterbury-Sutherland-Bankstown Bullsharks

Perhaps even playing NSW cup would be preferable to that…

'Tis the season to be silly: Let's talk NRL expansion

Yeah, it’s made relocation, rationalisation and even stadium policy easier for AFL

Shows how decisions made the best part of a century ago have ramifications

'Tis the season to be silly: Let's talk NRL expansion

Imagine a team with a 1-23 record playing semis !!!

That’s fair

Fool's gold: The NRL must change its competition points

Yep… when you look at a map of Melbourne all their club sides are inner city

It’s the equivalent of league sticking with easts, Souths, Balmain, Glebe, Annandale, Newtown, Sydney University

'Tis the season to be silly: Let's talk NRL expansion

There’s not five different results

Fool's gold: The NRL must change its competition points

It’s not fair for a team that wins in the first half of golden point that a team who only wins in the second half of golden point gets the same number of points

Maybe it should be:

4 points for a regular season win
3 points for a win in the first half of golden point
2.5 points for a win the the second half of golden point
2 points for a draw

It’s not fair that a team in the lead at halftime and wins the game only gets the same points as a team who was behind at halftime and won

6 points if you’re leading at half time and win
4 points if you’re behind at halftime and win

These make the same amount of sense as what you’re proposing
