Lets just leave it the way it is.
Agreed. Even when the league eventually lands a tenth team, they should still keep the current format. The first round bye as people have mentioned, rewards winning the regular season title with a week to rest while other teams are battling it out in order to get to the divisional championship games. Having too many teams making the playoffs as mentioned completely nullifies the regular season.
They should look to change the format once the league gets to 12 teams, which at this rate will be in the year 2120
Playoffs can stay as they are.
That said, a two game total point series semi final of 4 teams could also be interesting but would render much of the league eliminated with weeks remaining on the season.
And all that said, the same is true for most teams in the NFL with the majority of the league eliminated with weeks remaining and no one complains.
Nope. Id rather the reg season earn them an easier path (ie 1v8 ). I think its bush league that u can get to the grey cup by winning just one playoff game. Just my opinion…you dont have to agree.
Thanks sherlock. Lol
Agree with you except I think you maybe overly optimistic on when the league gets to 12.
So it must be lower than bush league that you win the EPL championship with having to win a single playoff game.
Yep, thats total bush league. I dont know what EPL is but remind me never to watch it.
The regular season does earn them an easier path, division winners get a bye in the first round. It’s extremely evident you can’t see the forest for the trees but I find being given a bye from the first playoff round an easier path than their next opponent has.
So let’s get rid of the regular season because it clearly means nothing and is not something you are interested in.
Premier League (and most soccer leagues) has it right.
This whole idea of playoffs is stupid.
It has nothing to do with competition.
It has everything to do with money.
Its extremely evident you cant read.
I know the regular season gets them a bye and an easier path. But my original point was that I dont like the fact you can win one playoff game and be in the grey cup.
Here’s a few sections from the forum guidelines for both of you to practice your reading comprehension on:
Trolling: Unleashing cynical/offensive remarks about a particular subject or towards another user with the intent/result of provoking an argument/quarrel is considered trolling. Flaming or just being obnoxious and disruptive falls under our definition of trolling. Trolling of any kind will not be tolerated.
Use of Sarcasm: You are not here to ‘score points’ on other members, so refrain from responding to another poster’s comments with sarcasm. It is condescending, divisive and unnecessary.
Debate, Don’t Argue: We are a community of people with diverse beliefs, opinions and backgrounds. You can disagree with a poster’s opinion but it can be done in a civil respectful manner. Do not use incendiary comments or sarcasm intended to put another member down because you don’t agree with that person’s comments or point of view. The forums attract many knowledgeable and passionate fans with different points of view. The forums thrive, in part, on the exchange of different ideas and different points of view. A lively debate can be fun to follow and participate in but when the conversation deteriorates and becomes an argument then we all lose.
Rather ballsy for a rookie to post forum rules he himself is breaking. And only 19 posts in. You’ll fit in well here. No need to worry about my posts because I won’t respond to someone who is clearly trolling.
Actually, I think it was the mod who posted the rules to make a point, not the rookie.
You are correct hit-em-hard. Read too fast. :-[
Do what makes you happy. ?
