    Now you have to buy pre-season tickets as part of the season tickets, presumably the season being meaningful games. I'm guessing in an expanded playoff format fans who want to go to playoff games will have to pre-commit to the 16 to 18 meaningless regular season games in order to guarantee themselves season playoff tickets.

    I don't totally hate the idea..

    If they used the same formula they did in the Super Bowl tournament in 1982..

    Just have two conferences..

    one seed plays the eight seed.
    two seed plays the seventh seed..
    ect. ect.

    Use brackets.. You can even make the argument for no out of conference games and it would bring more value to the Super Bowl..


    What I don't like about it is it seem automatic that a six and ten team can make it and that would suck..

    anyway I can take it or leave it.. But I can see some excitement in it..

    The 8-8 and 7-9 teams that have made it in the last few years were there because they won their divisions. We haven't had an 8-8 Wild Card team since the 2006 Giants.

    Since then, the Patriots missed with an 11-5 season, the Browns missed with a 10-6 season, the Giants missed with a 10-6 season, and the Bucs missed with 10-6 season.



    The only difference will be that the 9-7 team that's been on the losing end of the tiebreaker for the last few years is going to get in.

    Last year it would have been the Titans (9-7) and Bears (8-8).
    The year before would have been the Chargers (9-7) and Giants (10-6).
    The year before, the Texans (9-7) and Falcons (9-7).
    The year before, the Patriots (11-5) and Bucs (9-7).


    OH MY GOD, LOOK AT ALL OF THE 8-8 TEAMS THAT WOULD HAVE--wait a minute, there only would have been one.

    And even with 14 teams, there would be way more 9-7 teams that get left out than 8-8 teams that get in. There's not a single year since the NFL expanded to 32 teams in which a 7-9 team would have made the playoffs as the 3rd wild card.

    Someone wants to change something? How dare they!



    People complaining about scenarios that have no chance of actually occurring? What, did I accidentally stumble into the political forum?
    I feel like despite the record every year a couple duds make it in the field already. I am not in favor of adding more, no way
