Default New Playoff Format Suggestion

a format without regard to conferences, in which the top teams get to choose their opponents, round by round; the team with the top record picks first from among clubs that would be lower seeds, the second-best team drafts second and so on. Same system right to the four teams left for the semifinals. You've got to admit, it would build up the grudge factor, an underdog team knowing that the favorite chose it for its alleged beatability.
