Why no colors after 6 games?[edit]

I'll try to preempt an edit war here. Australia can actually finish out of the top three. One scenario is:

  • Russia wins out, getting two bonus points to finish on 11.
  • In losing to Russia, Ireland gets a bonus point and Australia does not.
  • Italy beats USA, gets a bonus point.
  • The loser of Italy-Ireland gets a bonus point.

Also, the USA can still finish #2 by beating Italy with a bonus, Italy beating Ireland with no bonus to either, Russia beating Ireland while denying Ireland a bonus, and Australia beating Russia.

If Russia can't beat Ireland tomorrow, then we can start filling it in, until then...
