I'd rather see the Superbowl moved to Saturday night.  Superbowl parties always have that cloud of Monday morning hanging over them.

dentalhilljack: Still doesn't change my belief that ALL leagues put way too many teams into their playoffs anymore.

No one within the leagues cares about your beliefs.

They will continue to have a lot of teams make the playoffs because people hate being connected with a loser and when you're buying season tickets to a team and investing 40 nights a year going to their home games, they want there to be a chance in hell that they at least make the playoffs.

Of course, the NBA insists on having a best-of-seven playoffs so the better team actually advances, instead of the one-and-done format where any team can get on a couple-game hot streak and have an actual chance to win the title, so the titles don't quite work out.

When Pat Bowlen had Mile High Stadium replaced, the NFL told him it would never have a SuperbOwl there unless it had a dome. Bowlen refused saying that an an outdoor stadium is an advantage when playing warm weather teams (including hosting division rivals San Diego and Oakland every year). Now that there's a big game in New Jersey this year, the NFL may just change its mind about Denver. It would be a great place for the championship.

Super Bowl Saturday.  Other than that, the current playoff format is great.

100% on board with that. It's such an event anyway the ratings will stay the same plus they have the bye week before so who cares if they get one less day of rest.

dentalhilljack: No more teams in the playoffs!  What've we've got now works fine.  Don't be like the NBA.

Half of the teams in the NBA make the playoffs.  The regular season matters.  You just dont like the NBA and that is okay.
