    Should be a top 6 max.
    Now the NRL want to make it so you can finish on the bottom half of the ladder yet still make the finals. Ridiculous.
    They would also be prolonging the season which they say is already too long.
    Only Parra, Titans and Dogs fans would be happy about this.

    And what the hell does undecided mean?!

        NRL has well and truly lost the plot
        Until the philosophy which holds on race superior and another inferior Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned then everywhere is war That until there is no longer 1st class or 2nd class citizens of any nation. Until the colour of a mans skin is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes. Then its a war. That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race Then its a war

            So, so ridiculous! Mediocrity is already rewarded too much with half of the competition already qualifying for the finals! It should really go down to a top six (better than a top five because it avoids one team going into the grand final with a week off). The first round of the playoffs at the moment is a waste of time and is actually unfair on the top teams that have worked hard all year to get there. You lose first up and you lose your home ground advantage. It's rubbish that they're doing it to keep interest alive. If you support your club and enjoy the game you go and watch them whether they are going to make the finals or not. And do they REALLY think that people think a team is going to win it from eighth anyway. And as I've said, they don't deserve to win it from there anyway.

              Wouldn't it be better to throw in some teams from English Super League, France, In Trust and Polynesia and we could rock along to a real TOP 40 competition.

              Get some of the teams adopting old dance trends to enliven pre-match like the Twist, Stompin at Maroubra, the Hustle etc and the crowds would boogie on down back to the NRL for sure.

              The premiers could get a gold...no make that platinum shield.

              Radio stations would be in on that TOP 40 comp for sure. And with that many teams the comp could go for two years instead of one. The second year playing the finals.

                Appalling idea.

                If you're not genuinely near the top of the table then you don't deserve a crack at the title.

                  Additionally ..the apparent reason for this idea, is that last season there were 30 something games toward season end that had no interest because had no relevance to the finals. This was because the top 8 broke away from the pack well before season end and the top 8 was decided by 3rd last round.
                  Whose to say you wont get the top 10 teams breaking away from the pack and being decided 3 or 4 rounds before season end causing some 'dead' games at end of season ...what do you do then ? . make it top 12 ?

                    An atrocious idea from a grossly incompetent administration.

                      Not a good look for a team that loses most of its games in a season to make the finals, but the big change here is the week off for the top six. It's better for teams 5 and 6 (they have a week off before they have to win 4 games in a row to win the comp. For the 2 top 4 teams that win in week 1 it means that they only play only 1 game in 3 weeks before playing the GF qualifier. Don't know if that's an advantage or not.

                        As if the NRL couldn't get any dumber. So these morons get paid to come up with this crap. Yeah let us reward more mediocrity. These farkers have lost the plot!

                          More games mans more tv content which means more $$$$$$ for NRL.

                          not stupid from that perspective but from a RL perspective weakens it to the who cares competition. Play 24 odd rounds to see who misses out

                                And what if the impossible actually happened?: 'Hi! Our team finished 10th with a for and against of minus 120, but because we played some crap teams in the finals and had a couple of big lucky breaks and poor ref decisions, coupled with the fact that the teams above us busted their guts to be placed where they are and have injury problems while we didn't commit properly to winning games and all our roster is fit, we embarrassingly hold this shield aloft. Try not to hate us too much!'
