Are you a happy Jets fan today?
Convinced of their progress and top-six credentials?
Not entirely sure one way or the other, but enjoying the ride so far?
I reckon you could be forgiven for feeling there might be a little bit of reason to each of those musings, dressed up as questions.
What does your footballing instinct tell you?
If you are a hardcore, rusted on Jets fan, I'm sure you are grinning like the proverbial Cheshire Cat, having watched an entertaining and exciting match choc full of chances that produced the desired result.
The 2-0 victory over Western Sydney Wanderers was a second consecutive win, the first home triumph of the season and, somewhat illogically, the second clean sheet on the bounce.
Would you then take that upbeat, euphoric feeling and parlay it into a considered and constructive argument that leaves you and everyone else in no doubt about the team's top-six credentials?
I ask only because, in your best interests of course, I called into the local TAB on Monday morning to see how the experts had viewed the opening quarter or so of the season and if I could sniff out any Christmas value for readers of this column.
Let's just say you won't get knocked over in the rush to accept any.
Unsurprisingly the boffins who run all the computer programs, statistical analysis and so on have the Jets and Brisbane Roar pretty much bracketed in the eighth and ninth positions in every category.
A touch harsh perhaps? But it leaves a touch of value for those prepared to put their money where their support lies.
Would you be game enough to take the $21 on offer about the Jets winning the championship? Is that a bridge too far?
Sydney FC are understandably favourites at $3.25. Surely taking the $67 about the Jets winning the minor premiership requires a fantasyland belief, given they are giving the Sky Blues, who have won six from seven, 10 points start - albeit with a game in hand.
Sydney, for the record, are at the very niggardly quote of $1.50 to win the minor premiership. Can you see anyone beating them home after 29 rounds? What about to make the top six?
Even if you have never had a bet, it's a question Jets fans must surely ask themselves a thousand times each year. This is where the perennial naysayers, and non-believers reside, ready to provide a detailed explanation of why things can't or won't happen. They are occasionally joined by the unconvinced but hopeful crew, who are enjoying the ride so far.
I can tell you the Jets are $2.50 to make the top six. Is that value? Compared to the Wanderers, who they beat on Saturday, at $1.35, I'd say a definite yes.
Compared to Melbourne City who, like Sydney FC, are at $1.01, I'd also say a big yes.
I'd think twice about backing Roger Federer to beat Elton John over five sets at that price, never mind relying on a team who have so often flattered to deceive in this competition.
Rather than encourage anyone to have a bet, heaven forbid, I'm trying to look at the top-six question from a broader aspect, not just the Jets' formlines and fluctuating fortunes. So rather than get carried away with consecutive wins, or be too cautionary about open games and too many chances being created for my peace of mind, I'm going to make it as basic as possible - which five teams can you see finishing below the Jets?
It's a different way of trying to assess things, isn't it?
Ninety nine per cent would probably nominate the Mariners and Phoenix off the top of their head, and the bookies concur.
But will Melbourne Victory and Perth remain in the bottom four? Who replaces them, if they improve as most might suggest?
Have the Wanderers and Western United hit the wall? Could last year's minor premiers miss the top six?
Will Roar find consistency? Are perennial finalists Victory in trouble?
Which coaches are vulnerable? Will the January transfer window provide salvation for some of the richer clubs?
Hmmm, maybe it's not dependent on what the Jets do or how the league treats them? Or so I thought.
In an 11-team competition there are 29 rounds, with three byes, hence 26 games each. So each club play six teams three times and the other four twice.
Looking at my season fixture list I see the Jets play Wanderers, Brisbane, Victory and Wellington only twice. Four eminently winnable games on current form.
But they get three games against four of the current top five, last year's minor premiers as well as bitter derby rivals the Mariners.
I am not one for conspiracy theories, but it's a rort.
Those bludgers at the FFA knew Wellington and Brisbane would battle and Victory and the Wanderers would struggle this season, so they gave us tougher teams to play three times.
Bloody Newcastle, we've copped it again.
That's my completely neutral analysis and observation, presented with all encompassing broad overview.
Only three points in Adelaide on Sunday in round nine could ease my considered suspicions.
