I can't stand this guy. He wants to expand the nfl playoffs? It'll be just like hockey used to be. Everyone makes it. I think the postseason is for the elite teams only. Not for mediocrity. Then you have your 7-9 , 8-8 teams in there. And all it does is lessen the regular season games importance.All Goodall sees is $$$$$.

It's all about the money.

Of course, being old school, I still prefer two divisions and only 4 teams making the ML playoffs. But us old-schoolers lost that battle years ago....

Considering that numerous 7-9 and 8-8 teams have won in the playoffs the last 10 years it kind of chinks the armor of the 'playoffs for elite teams only' argument.

Still, it is correct that allowing more teams into the playoffs defeats the purpose of a regular season.

So long as the masses watch, nobody in charge will really care.

I don't want 7-9 or 8-8 teams in the playoffs. Yes any given Sunday anything can happen. You could put a 4-12 team in there and there's a chance they could upset somebody.just takes away the relevance of what post season is for.

More intelligent people understand this.

Less intelligent (or mature) people who are in it strictly for 'entertainment' do not.

The breaking point/deciding factor is dollars. Always has been, always will be.

As long as enough people tune in to be 'entertained', relevance won't matter.
