It's a winner take all league and EVERYBODY wants the championship. The rest are left with sour grapes and an arsenal of opinions and statistical facts which NEVER dethrone the champs.
It's always been that way and always will be. Second place is the first loser and the fall in afterwards. Championships - that's all we care about.
"We have been watching and waiting, but I wouldn't say we intend to continue to do that. I think you watch and wait to try and assess a situation and act accordingly. It might involve more waiting. It might involve moving in one direction or another. We've done plenty of watching and waiting. If we can move in a particular direction, we might do that."
