summer junior premiers

just want to say - why award a premier ? some comps teams will not have even played each other over the season and teams close to the top have played bottom teams twice when they did redraw and avoided playing top 4 teams. Creates false belief and unfair opportunities for juniors.

re: summer junior premiers

Assuming the length of the season can't be changed, how do you propose it is made fair? The extended draw happens after the 5 games. You can't necessarily determine which teams are going to be the strongest for a number of reasons (Players get moved up, teams had players missing, a weak team could have been playing the 5 weakest teams).

There is no fair way to schedule games and it is the silly season. Focus should be on development. If they are still able to make it to the finals then so be it.

On another note I still think there should be semi finals.

re: summer junior premiers

shouldn't award a premier. One team that can make the 1 v 2 single round GF in our grade wouldn't have played 3 of the 4 top teams at all over summer - will finish 2nd by default as they play the bottom teams twice. Other teams have played top 4 twice and the lower teams not at all. So shouldn't have a premier - it has not been earnt.

re: summer junior premiers

bit more thought needs to go into the redraw - Div 1 would never have it yet it is ok to dish it out to equal paying lower divs
