How does your leage structure its playoffs and seedings? Our league almost had an interesting twist this year, and we are considering re-doing the playoff seedings for next season. I was curious to hear what other leagues do.
Ours is a 10 team league, and we play in two divisions of five teams. Currently, the top two teams from each division make the playoffs. Then the two best records, regardless of division, also make the playoffs, for a total of six teams. The two division winners get a bye (to the semi-finals), while the remaining four teams battle it out in the quarter finals Week 14.
This season though, one division was very dominant. We almost had a situation where the second-best team in Division One had a worse record than the fifth place team in Division Two. That caused some discussion if it's fair to have the top two from each division automatically get in, or if we should just make it the division winners, and then the best four teams after that.
