Not sure how I feel about this.

I am.

It sucks.

They won’t but they should

And adding to this the NBA absolutely needs to shorten the season and add a tournament type format.  I would definitely watch that and my NBA interest is crazy low right now.

That and scrap the lottery.  Would be so much more interesting.

Please don’t, just another way to reward mediocrity.

a playoff team but still having a top 15 pick is damn near idiotic

It opens the door for more mediocre teams to get hot and make a run through the playoffs. Really makes the regular season less important.

I like it. If you think about it, it should actually make the regular season games more meaningful and exciting for the majority of teams. With only 1 bye per conference, fewer teams at the top will be able to rest starters at the end of the season with a bye on the line. And for the rest of the conference, more teams will remain in contention for a playoff spot later into the season.

As far as the playoff matchups, all it does is add an extra game. 3 vs 6 and 4 vs 5 remain intact. If you don't want to watch a 2 vs 7 matchup, then don't. I think Green Bay vs the Rams would've been interesting though.

I'm  with you. Sounds good to me. However the teams that would have been in the past three years is underwhelming,

I like it...every game in season will mean more...better competition

Actually what it partially solves is the 8-8 division winner getting in over the 10-6 non division winner. I'm in.

Exactly...what happens in the second half of every season is teams and players half assing it because there is nothing to play for...would help with that.

1 extra team per conference is not a big shift.

Agree on all points.

Gives the best record a significant advantage since it is now the only team that must only win two games to get to the SB while others need three.

Kinda...except the Ravens being stale and out round one this year.
