It's funny that nearly all the "edge cases" from the last couple years are from teams that were in the 6-10 type seeds. Yeah buddy, you sat out, and your team wasn't that good as a result. That counts.Word.
Anyone who can sit out a quarter or more of his team's games probably doesn't need the slot. And probably didn't contribute as much. Imo this will still have some edge cases, but it solves more problems than it creates.
