I heard some rumbling on one of the talking heads sports shows that some teams want to expand the playoff pool. The obvious attraction is $$$$, as there would be more ticket revenue, and more TV monies. One obvious path to this would be to pick up two more wildcard teams, and forgo the bye. This would result in 4 more teams, and 2 more games. It would dimish the need for teams to want to finish top 2, to get the bye, so I think would make for a less interesting end of the season. Another less desirable (in my opinion) way would be to give the 4 division winners all byes, and having 8 wild card spots. This would make the NFL more like the NHL, in that only 8 teams would miss the playoffs. It would diminish, in my eyes anyway, the accomplishment of making the playoffs, but would make being a division champ a little more valuable. What do you think? expand (and how) or not....?
