The only way to make the playoffs fair is the cross-over rule as I previously discussed.
Just don't see how a cross over works with 4 conferences. At least the CFL only has 2 groups (and still can't stand it).
If 5th in an eastern conference crossed over into the 4th in a pacific zone place. Do they advance in that bracket? Don't think that will address the travel concerns especially for the first seed in the pacific having to travel back and forth to the east coast in round 1. Though I acknowledge that was an extreme example I brought up.
