But I think in the playoffs it should be based on a multiple of the difference in won-loss record of the opposing teams. Most of us know what its like to lose to the bottom playoff team that just got hot down the stretch. HFA makes em overcome the burden of their poorer regular season showing, it makes the regular season count for more than just to qualify for post season play.
Once in the Super Bowl I feel the two remaining teams should be on equal footing, though I've seen some leagues who even gave HFA there.
Just my .02
That's a pretty cool idea if I have it straight. So if you use a multiple of 2 in your scenario, an example would be:
Playoff Team A (8-4): +4 * 2 = 8
Playoff Team B (10-2): +8 * 2 = 16
So taking the difference of the 2 results, Team B would have an 8 point advantage to start the playoff game? Very interesting. I like it. I also agree that this should not be used in the SB (maybe just for the 1st round). I'll be curious to see what others think.
