Yep, you don't get any benefit for finishing minor Premier if you bomb out in finals. Whether there should be a reward of some sort for finishing minor Premier (beyond a trophy no one cares about) is a different matter. With the Home & Away being a Marathon and the finals a Sprint, I'd give the club that wins the minor Premiership $50k prize money and each player who played at least one H&A game $5000 (outside the cap). Nothing huge, but a little recognition they've best mastered the grind of the H&A season.Yea I can remember Choco making a big deal out of a minor prem. one year. Then we were knocked out in straight sets. Means jack if you don't back it up. It gives you a great platform so let's see where it takes us this year. My minimum tick would be a close fought loss in a prelim. I want more but you know the song.
