Please send to the Board of Govenors. I agree that the eight teams should be seeded by points alone because that third division winner is even worse because they had an easier schedule in the bad division. Both conferences have that one bad division each this year. The seeding should go one more further and that is the first seed should get the additional right to choose from the bottom four. The second seed should get the next choice from the remaing three. The third seed chooses from the remaing two leaving the last two to play each other. This concept can be carried forward to the second round also with the highest seed choosing from the three survivors. A draft type TV show could be contructed around the whole exercise, a very interesting commercial enterprise. GM's could make their choices ahead of time via a priority list in a sealed envelope for the first round and another priority list for the second round in a sealed envelope (of course the highest seeded survivour would be the only envelope opened after round one). I believe it would be a hit and a fair reward for winning your conference and placing second or third.....and finally a just reward for the highest seed surviving round one. With the submissions from the GM's in advance the show could be done right away so the schedulers can get to work on the matchups. What do you think? Govenors are you listening?
