I know there's reasons they stick with 16 teams, but if your going to play an 82 game season, it's silly to give over half the teams in the league a shot at the title.
Yeah, random is as random does. Variance will produce huge upsets, weird streaks and the like. It's the media that picks up the few that occur and stand out, remove the details to simplify, and run with them, making us think something is there beyond the randomness of life.
