At the start of every season all of the teams meet and decide the playoff format. Every year, there are extensive arguments about the format. With this size of a league, there is no obvious best choice, everything is a trade-off. Bear in mind that this all takes place before a single game is played, when every team is a Presidents Cup champion in waiting. With such a short season, even one playoff gate is valued and greatly needed revenue for each team.
I have a novel idea, rather than complain about the format now, join your local executive and help them make the decision next year, last I checked, they all could use the help.
