    I just find it amazing that a bloke can have his team coming third out of four and think that that is a better position than half the teams there.

    Obviously I know what he is trying to say, but I am coming at it from the top down and looking at the whole thing saying that they are in the bottom 50% so they cant be better than half of the teams there. he is coming from the bottom up, saying that they are better than or just as bad as everyone in the bottom 50%.

    I've come up with an idea that might get teams to send full strength squads in the future. Instead of playing for prize money that no club really gives a shit about, maybe they should play for salary cap money. For example; winner gets $500,000 added to their salary cap to use within 3 years, spent however they like. Losing teams get el-squoto

    People have been raving over Jai Field, but did he show much other than just being really quick.
    Not sure why he is "demanding" inclusion in first grade

    As a long suffering Knights fan I'm so happy to see Ponga doing well and even happier he's staying at the Cowboys this year to further his development that little bit more.

    Hey Pieman. Archer didn't say they were "better than" 50%, he said that they were "better than OR equal to" 50%, which is a correct mathematical/logical statement (25% + 25% = 50%). Obviously they were only "BETTER than" 25%, but that isn't what Archer was (semantically) arguing.
