Best and worst: Playoff Systems

Standard

This is a new segment, called best and worst. Just when I have some subject within there are clear winners and losers. Here’s an example for playoff systems.

BEST OF THE BEST:
March Madness! The most teams, the most games – it just adds up for one month of great basketball!

BEST:

The NBA and the NHL tie for the best system. It just doesn’t get simpler. Top 8 teams move on, done! No more or less. I think that every league should use something of this variety. It would keep the best teams in the playoffs.

MEDIOCRE:

In the MLB, the playoff system could be better and worse. While the division champs are usually better than non-playoff teams, and two wild cards let other teams play, it would just be more simple to do top 6.

WORST:

NFL and MLS both have ever confusing systems. How did the Titans have a better record than both the Broncos, and still not make the playoffs? And in the MLS, let’s be honest. Where the heck does it start?

WORST OF THE WORST:
BCS. Why not top eight teams? Because the BCS is a money-hungry, greedy, stupid, horrible company. WHO CARES ABOUT THE WHOSEE WHATSIT BOWL? Not me, that’s for sure.
