henryo at kallangroar have noted S-league had gone ahead with it decision for the penalty for the bottom 2 teams but with a twist.
The rules state - The subsidy deduction will not apply should the Club achieve a minimum
20% of the maximum total points available for the entire league season.
And here are the teams that he noted would have been penalised for it
2012 (14.4 pts): Woodlands (14)
2011 (19.8 pts): Woodlands (13), Tg Pagar (14)
2010 (19.8 pts): Woodlands (19)
2009 (18.0 pts): None
2008 (19.8 pts): Balestier (17), Hougang (19)
2007 (19.8 pts): Super Reds (18)
2006 (18.0 pts): None
2005 (16.2 pts): Paya Lebar (4 pts only!!!)
2004 (16.2 pts): None
2003 (19.8 pts): None
2002 (19.8 pts): Gombak (12)
2001 (19.8 pts): None
2000 (13.2 pts): None
1999 (13.2 pts): Hougang (12)
1998 (12.0 pts): Hougang (9)
1997 (09.6 pts): Home Utd (7), Sembawang (8)
1996 (16.8 pts): None
I would say it is reasonable as infamous team like Paya Lebar and Gombak of 2002 as well as Super Reds of 2007, if people see them in action and remember it, do need to buck up.
And Woodlands Wellington with 3 Wooden Spoon in a row will need to buck up as the now-defunct Balestier Central and also defunct Marine Castle/Sengkang Marine were also teams that was constantly contender for Wooden Spoon if not 'winning' it in their weakest period but as the chart show they got enough points.
So 20% is achievable mark even if one finish last
