Welll.....everyone makes the playoffs. Our playoffs are the NFL playoffs. So we hold a draft with the #1 seed getting first pick-#8 seed with last pick. Every year it seems a bottom team wins. So, I propose we make the first round heavily in favor of the top teams. Top seed get two picks, then second seed two picks, etc.... this will make it VERY VERY hard for the bottom teams to advance.....(as it should be)
On Superbowl weekend, we hold another draft with the two teams remaining choosing players from the super bowl teams.
"Every rule has an exception....the exception can't become the rule"
Well, if you remember the original plan from two years ago, I wanted to create the second league in order for the playoffs to be competitive - ie 4 teams from each league make it, and 4 don't. This, of course, fell through by popular vote.
I've wanted to expand the advantage for the higher seeds - as you know I've suggested double rounds for the playoff draft, but couldnt get a strong enough response to justify anything too drastic in that regard.
Is this worth putting up for discussion again on the NAFFLIU list, or do you have a new suggestion?
