Right? It makes no sense! It's like the guy who put together the first tournament knew nothing about sports and since then everyone has just followed along. I think it's time to start a group here! I'll have it set up by the end of today!
I understand what you're saying but from a fairness standpoint, I don't get it. Seems to me you have to worry more about the #1 than the #2. It aids the #2 by making if more difficult for the #1. And if the final winds up being 1 vs 3, is that bad?
There should be a distinct advantage to getting to the final for the 1-seed
Seems to me, the 3-seed should have earned an easier match than the 4-seed.
I like the conspiracy theory! I'm not sure how 1 vs 3 and 2 vs 4 sells more tickets than 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3, but the concept of a conspiracy is always welcome!
