    Yeah, but it waters down the product. Add too many teams to the playoffs and you get the NBA playoffs. No one watches the first couple rounds of that.

    i agree that more teams in the playoffs is a turnoff for me. but with the addition of just 1 and 1 less bye, they didnt extend the playoffs by a week and its still not half the league that makes it.... this has to be the max though. we cant have half the damn teams making it

    You kind of have 2 do it that way or it leads to very dumb bye systems.

    Like 3 byes
    Then 1 bye
    Which would give the one seed 2 weeks off.

    I like the idea of expanding playoffs to 1 extra team, cause half the time we miss out by 1 game.

    I just cant see the players union accepting 17 reg season games tho

    sounds like that part is already basically agreed to, they are hammering out other issues

    Loss of the bye for the two seed is criminal

    Why

    We mock the idea of awarding 2nd placers

    A by-product of taking away the 2nd place bye is the top teams will have more to play for in the final weeks of the season as they compete for the advantage of the only bye in the conference.

    OR... one team will be way ahead and the teams all below will have nothing to play for making the last few weeks lame as hell
