^ That, right there, shows how arbitrary this all is. The weighting is so wrong. Everyone knows that Champion Data uses 6 drops of essence of terror and 5 drops of sinister sauce.

Basically perceived performance over the season so far. That’s all it is! :)

The results so far from this round are certainly going to mess with the rankings though…

Yep, but I've always encouraged other posters to post their own ladders in here too!

Havent got my own ladder to post, but I think there is merit in separating the bottom 2/3/4 teams from everyone else. GWS are "flying" apparently - but have had the good fortune of already playing North and the Eagles... The crows by contrast havent played one of the bottom four teams once! Blues have a tough 5 weeks coming up and may well go from "flag favourites" (lol...) to 5-5 mid ladder also-rans.

When you have bad teams which are sooo bad, when and how many times you play them had a huge role in the shape of the ladder. It detracts even more from some of the crap like "top 8 locked in already" which we are already readong on the likes of fox footy.

To be clear - none of this means we should be higher in the ladders posted on this thread. Probably somewhere between 10-13 is about right IMO. Need to be win at least two of the next three to suggest we are still a decent team capable of being in the top 6 or thereabouts.
It's never as good/nor bad as it seems...
