  1. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    Guess we have different lines. I'm glad mine makes sense though.
  2. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    So no changes should be made to any sports league because some people might not like it. Cool.
  3. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    We lost more games, they won more games. Of course I'd prefer a home game, but I don't want some (semi) arbitrary grouping of teams to make that happen based on a standings technicality rather than on merit. You know, by winning more games.

    That makes zero sense, and goes directly against the principle that those advocating for reseeding are basing that on. Why would I, right now, argue that it should go by record, and then if it changes, then switch to arguing it SHOULDN'T be by record? Seed. By. Record.

    But that easily could be the situation my team is facing this year. Packers would have home field against the Niners if things break a certain way, and that's bananas. Niners will probably have the better record, not to mention they PASTED us during the season. Now, I would assume they'd come in and win either way, but they should still be rewarded with the home game.

    No it wouldn't. Nobody complains about a division winner with a better record getting a bye week over a division winner with a worse record. Hell, the Patriots have made a dynasty out of devouring their weak division and only needing to win two home games.

    Then going on the road in the first round shouldn't be a problem, right? If you're the better team you shouldn't always win no matter where!
  8. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    Because records are a real tangible thing that happened in head-to-head matchups on the field rather than some transitive property formula thing. And you're right that the NFL won't change it. But as has been said over and over, it has nothing to do with anything related to the on-field product, or actually setting up the best possible tournament that decides the best team.
  9. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    If the division winner is the better team due to brawling it out in a good division, winning on the road shouldn't be an issue. Step up or go home!
  10. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    If these sally snowflake .500 division winners want to be taken seriously then they shouldn't have a problem going on the road and proving themselves! Grrr!!
  11. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    Actually, I come to the conclusion that it's not fair and it should be changed. The ones in charge -- the owners -- come to the conclusion that they don't care about fairness, or reason, or ensuring the best possible product on the field. They care about gate receipts and how many $12 beers they can push.
  12. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    For somebody who finds losing so abhorrent, you sure support rewarding teams for losing more often than other teams.
  13. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    "I don't want to think critically about this topic and change seems scary"
  14. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    Jesus I can't believe I have to keep saying this. MAKING THE PLAYOFFS IS NOT LARGELY MEANINGLESS.
  15. TNF: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

    Maybe if they had home field they would have. That argument goes both ways
