    Need to kill this season ASAP. This isn't as entertaining with only a handful of posters.

    A top five system is less games than one entire round though. It'd take no time at all.

    For the record, I am opposed to the idea of a finals series in a league competition.

    Saying this now while first place is still up for grabs.

    What is this, America?

    I'd rather we did the entire 30 round season than a finals series tbh.

    I think you should do a final between the top 2, or don't bother with finals. What's the point of doing a 15 round league if you're going to do a knockout with half the teams afterwards. You could do a best of 3 with the top 2 sides though, just like a triangular ODI series.

    I don't think I can make the top five anymore, so I think my opinion of a top five is now unbiased as well.

    No need for any finals. Completely defeats the purpose of having a league-type tournament imo.

    We need a simple, modest solution. I propose throwing all managers into a pool of sharks and see who survives.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
