A 2 seed should not be punished like this. One team getting the top seed is horrible for the playoff format. It’s a weak structure that gives power to 14% of the field instead of 33%.
Yep. They'll fix it when 8 teams get in.

My thoughts exactly. And it's been great since 2002.

I hate both proposals.

If you want an extra playoff game, then let 8 teams in and keep the top two get a bye.

Half the league making the playoffs seems too much.

This may sound like a dumb question, but how would that bracket work?

6 teams play the first week and 3 win and 2 byes...

Maybe all 4 division winners get a bye and then the next 4 best records get in and fight amongst themselves for the right to play the division winners?

I kinda like that...

in part, you can blame legal gambling. This gives them so much more leverage to screw people with lower seeds winning early rounds, like The Titans this last year.
watered down? makes it beefier and more fun actually. And like you said, Money

I blame King Karl for this, he was always pushing for more teams in the playoffs.

Youd still end up eventually with an odd number of teams. There would be 2 winners from the WC round but 4 division winners. There would need to be 12 playoff teams per conference to be able to award all division winners a bye.
