Do you agree-disagree or what?

*YES. I like that the division winners get in regardless.

*NO. The teams with the best records should go.

*Expand the playoffs so that a team who goes 14-2 has a better chance.

*Let all the teams in and play the game... #1 vs #16 - #8 vs #9 etc-etc.

Why don't they just get rid of the divisions and just have conferences. The AFC and NFC. The top 8 in each conference make the playoffs. Pretty much like college basketball tournaments (The ACC, SEC, BIG-10 tournys) are done. Except the top 4 teams do not get byes. #1 vs #16 so on and so on.

It can be done.

It's just they would have to play more games. I say make it a 20 game season. Each team play evrey member in thier conference and 4 games against the other coference.

My dad grew up with chronic asthma and never indoctrinated me into this ritual of sports or being a sports fans. I'm inherently opposed to the concept that one team or individual must lose so the other can win. It pervades through society and I have no interest in any of it. I prefer a philosophy which provides balance such as one team intentionally desiring low points so the other can achieve a goal of acquiring high ones. They work in harmony rather than against one another.

My dad taught me how to draw comics. By my 14th birthday I
decided this shit was for geeks.

A couple of years ago I got back into it and presented some art work to The Gutters. Then I realized I was a geek.

Never played team sports in school, but was pretty good playing football, basketball, baseball, dodgeball and most games youngsters play with friends but it's something I respect and enjoy.

If it's a shoulder you wish to cry on you picked the wrong guy. I feel your pain but honestly you should really get over that.

The Gutters is no place to post your weakness or what you didn't get growing up. My advice for you is to seek help some where else.

Now back to the topic..... The NFL Playoff system. Do you agree-disagree or what?

If you enjoy watching brawny young men grabbing each other, you may want to just cut to the chase.

The sport definitely caters to gay men. I'm just not sure how they can tell the difference between the "Wide Receiver" and the "Tight End". Maybe they find out when someone "goes long". Between the ass slapping and grabbing the balls between someones legs, the sport has always made me cringe.

Here is another suggestion for the current playoff system.

Division winners get in but do not have an automatic home game. 4 division winners and two wild card teams get in.

The current NFC Playoff:

1. Seattle 10 1 0
2. New Orleans 9 2 0
3. Detroit 7 5 0
4. Dallas 7 5 0
5. Carolina 9 3 0
6. San Francisco 8 4 0

The new playoff seystem would be:

1. Seattle 10 1 0
2. New Orleans 9 2 0
3. Carolina 9 3 0
4. San Francisco 8 4 0
5. Detroit 7 5 0
6. Dallas 7 5 0

That would give the teams with the best record in the wild-card game home field advantage.

Why should Carolina and San Francisco play away when they have better records than Detroit and Dallas?

In the AFC Kansas City is tied for the second best record but be a #5 seed and play on the road.
