Antron must not watch the NFL.

It has happened where a team won its division with a loosing record because the division was so weak and then hosted a playoff game and won.

I do believe the countdown needs to change, both of those choices don't cut it for me... so no vote...
I happen to agree....

That would make the other side of the ladder a 2 minute highlight reel.

The best way to sum it up is a line from one of my favorite movies....

What I believe is particularly appealing about Antron's proposal is that it would have a part time or lower funded team allow to participate in the final round. Thus, greatly enhancing the opportunity for them to showcase their team, and possibly get the win. The beauty would be in this positive public exposure, and to boost their sponsorship potential. Moreover, it keeps the "countdown playoff" teams truly competing against one another with greater attention from the racers, fans, and media.

I recommend buy backs if you lose ! Let's say a half a million a round , all money going back to the great non-profit . I should be on the board .

No one is getting gypped out of championships. Everyone knows the points format going in. And making two different ladders for playoff/non playoff drivers is just nonsense.

The only reason Brown complains because his buddy didn't deliver when it mattered.

And why do you say it's nonsense? What he is proposing matches the playoff championship contenders against one another. Thus, keeping the championship a true playoff scenario.
