| More Sports Board|| Scrap the NFL Conference and Division structure - Champagne on 2/3/14 at 9:26 am|
The current structure failed to place an AFC team that belonged on the field with the NFC team. Both the 49ers and the Saints would have beaten the Broncos.

When you live in a country in which the instrumentalities of the Nation-State itself are used to target, harass and torment political enemies of the administrators of the Nation-State . . .

One would have a tough time finding a fanbase with more arrogance and less respect for LSU, once you consider Sooner Nation.
I realize that we have no love for the Taaahhhhd of Cram-sun from Alllar bammer, but, cheering for the Oklahoma Sooners?

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Proposed: new playoff bracketing that seeds based on record. - Champagne on 12/30/13 at 9:34 am|
Eliminate the structure whereby Division Champs get higher seeds. Seed every team according to W/L record. This could mean that a Division Champ would miss the playoffs, but, would eliminate many 8-8 or 7-9 Division Champs, too.
Eliminate the NFL Conference "divide" in the playoff bracketing, suc...
