In my leagues though it is broken up into conferences and 4 teams from each conference go, makes it easier.

In the 8 team league I'm in we just take the top 4 teams to the playoffs and there aer only 2 playoff games.

So the 2/7 plays both divisions?

It should be

1 vs. 8
4 vs. 5
--------
3 vs. 6
2 vs. 7

1 vs 8 winner plays 4 vs 5 winner
3 vs 6 winner plays 2 vs 7 winner

winner of top plays winner of bottom.


The other way is to match up seeds after first round....highest seed plays lowest seed, etc.

Isnt it ,the winner highest seed,faces with the person with the losest seed, so if number 8 seed beats number 1, and number 2 seed wins there match, doesnt it should look like this 2 vs 8 in the second round?????


And if theres two upsets, and 3 and 5 wins there matches it should look like this:


3 vs 8
5 vs 7
Record 8-2-0 PF 960 12 Team Leauge
basic scoring
1 QB 2 RB 2 WR 1 TE 1 DST

QB Brees/E.Manning*
RB EDGE*
RB R.Brown*/M.Barber/G.Jones/C.taylor
WR T.Holt*
WR R.Moss*/Engram/R.Brown
TE J.WItten*
K N.Reckers*
DST Bears*

Some people re-seed everybody after each round, but that gets confusing sometimes. It's just simpler to arrange a bracket accoring to initial seeds and go from there.
