Why is a 1 game contest that decides the lowest 2 ceeded positions in the playoffs a coin flip, yet the NFL uses 1 game in every playoff round including the championship, and it's generally accepted? It's just a convention that's in place now, and playoff formats (just like divisional/conference alignments) change in sports all the time. I think a team has to succeed within whatever playoff framework is in place at the time to be the champion.
