You mean they got it wrong in rugby? I see. I think the point was more general.

But the point is if the points accumulation rate is similar, you would expect a bigger difference between top and bottom after 35 games compared to 27 games.

Real people don’t care for ideology, they just want a better life and will vote for the person who looks most credible to deliver it. Real socialism has never been credible precisely because it is ideological.

Indeed, although they've played far fewer games.

Plus you can score from penalties.

I certainly feel the life drain out of me waiting for a goal to be adjudicated. Fans and players alike have said as much. You can't celebrate. And in football is a low scoring game, hence why even 1 goal matters so much. Rugby has about double the average number of tries.

I can't believe that's it. In football most people think the referee is a wanker. 🤣 I think it will have more to do with the spontaneity and simplicity of the game (football far more so than rugby). Hence, waiting for VAR to adjudicate in football is a passion killer.

has remarked that the difference between a good and bad run in the Premier League is the difference between Champions League and regulation. In fact it's 20 points. In the National League, after 25% more games (35), it's just 11 between possible promotion and relegation

This is what happens when people try to reduce risks with prohibition.

I guess when people don’t like something they will always have an explanation for why it’s bad, and change the narrative each time the facts change. A case of confirmation bias leading people into a sunk cost fallacy cul de sac. 😉

Let’s see how things look in 12 months. They already look different to predictions made last year by Remainers (Boris wouldn’t get a deal) and radically different to Bank of England projections about house prices, jobs and earnings made for the 2 years following the vote.

will fill you in with that one. As last year they didn’t hold all of them, they don’t this year either.

Since when did Brexiters want to do away with free trade? You can have free trade without political union. The EEC managed it superbly.
