I just wanted to share my misery...I entered the playoffs as the number 1 seed and the leading scorer. I played the #8 seed and he beat me 88-80. This was the lowest point total my team scored all year....3 of my studs killed me this week
Matt Hasselbeck, D.McCallister, and Tory Holt combined for a total of 16 points....Gotta love that..........Everyone in the league assumed that I was gonna win it all. for future reference.being the #1 seed doesnt mean Sh*t.....Like they say "any given Sunday"
Been there, done that, too.
I totally believe that in a 8 team league, points should be awarded to the #1 and #2 seeds. If you dominate all year, then it should take the #1 seed to have a major off day, while the #8 seed should have to score like a big dog.

I see your point, but disagree. Making the playoffs is new life to teams who have fought through injuries and un-expected low production, as well as a few bad picks.
I'm just a little Hawaiian and a homesick Island boy,
I want to go back to my fish and poi ...
If a playoff game consisted of your total score for 3 weeks, then I see your point. Injuries are part of the game. If your players get hurt, work the waiver wire or make some good trades. you shouldn't be rewarded for drafting a crap team. However, I do understand both sides.
how many teams are in these leagues with 8 playoff teams
unless there are 16 teams in this league, I think having 8 teams in the playoffs almost makes the regular season worthless.
teams at .500 or under could make it to the postseason.
if you want eight playoff teams, I think homefield advantage would be a good thing. It would mkae some of these upsets a little more difficult to do, and being the number one team would have meaning again.
