    Depends on the soccer - I'm coaching my boy's Futsal team (indoor soccer) and they're only two games into the season but they've scored 38 goals.

    Got it. It is a great season and Rossi is showing why he's the GOAT. I'm a glass is half empty kind of guy. I wish there were more races left instead of only three.

    Three races left. Four points difference between 1st and 2nd. George could win the remaining three, and if Rossi is runner up in every case, he still takes it. Correct?

    Incorrect, If George wins the next one and Rossi is second they will be tied.
    1st place = 25 points
    2nd place = 20 points
    3rd place = 16 points
    4th place = 13 points
    5th place = 11 points
    6th place = 10 points
    7th place = 9 points
    8th place = 8 points
    9th place = 7 points
    10th place = 6 points
    11th place = 5 points
    12th place = 4 points
    13th place = 3 points
    14th place = 2 points
    15th place = 1 points

    ^ Math has never been my strong point, but with Rossi ahead by 18 does that give him three seconds (60pts) to George's three firsts (75pts) and he still claims the title by 3 pts?

    ^^ Not that I'm saying Vale doesn't have at least one more win in him. But there is a very big difference between "nothing to lose" and "throwing it all away."

    In racing it ain't over till it's over. So much can happen in 3 races. In a perfect world, ya he could finish second 3 times and win. If Jorge doesn't win it's pretty much over, but then if Rossi makes one mistake then it's over for him. I love racing because in most cases it can't be "fixed". It used to make me crazy when people said nascar races were fixed, clueless people who have no idea what's going on. Too many individual teams trying for the prize for any of them to give up anything, including teammates.
