Re: Conference questionnaire results
The poll clearly show most everyone wants the "if" game, so be it. I am in a huge minority. It needs to be played though or a penalty needs to be given. You don't forfeit the most important game of a tournament especially if you are one of the 80%+ that say we need the if game.
But nothing says it has to be called a double elimination tournament. I'm not sure it even says that anywhere now. Once the winners final is played we do have a champion unless the tournament is completed.
A few years ago when ESPN said they needed a one game championship at the conference finals, no one had an issue.
