the scenario that I wonder about....
What if you have 2 divisions have only 3, 2 divisions have 5....those divsiona re in the same conference....
How will it be decided who plays who?
1. Would it be lowere 5th place play higher 1st place?
2. Would higher 1st place get to choose which team they play?
Alternate...with the 4th and 5th place in the playoffs would they all stick in the same divsion or can the first place team in division A be highest and opt to play 4th place division B team instead of their divisions 4th team (who also earned a spot)
can't happen it is per conference. The 5th place atlantic team can bump the 4th place central team, but not the 4th place midwest or pacific team.
