They've also tinkered too much with the playoff system. I started watching back in '02, where it was just a season long accumulation of points. Then they switched to the chase format in '06, which wasn't so bad. Then a few years ago they switched it to a round elimination format? I'm not sure, it was around that switch that I stopped caring. Of course any point system is arbitrary, but switching it up every year does not help legitimize the champions in your sport.
