      * First, TV be damned and play all final week games
      at the same time (say everyone at 4pm) so that no one
      will know scenario outcome before they play.
      * Second, while which six teams per conference make
      the playoffs are determined the way they are now,
      the seedings are determined by the last 4 (or 6)
      games of the season.

          Couldn t agree more Kevin. While watching games I often think that the only reason football exists is to convince us to buy new cars, Viagra, lite beer etc.

            Football for me used to be a game with commercials in it. Now it seems much more like a bunch of commercials with a game going on in the background.

            I agree. You really don t realize how much the advertisers affect the game till you go to the stadium and see how the badly TV commercials slow things down.
