There should be an option to make all playoff rounds two weeks long. That way, you get a real test of who the better team is in a long match
Two week playoff rounds would truly separate the men from the boys. Better managers and well balanced teams would be less likely to lose because of a key injury/rest day or an outburst from one opposing player.

Two week matchups. Three week matchups. Allow us to choose. One week matchups is terrible way to determine the better team. Especially for the Playoffs.

Yes! I have been asking for this for the past 5 years as well. Thanks David! I had put up posts about this over the last couple years, and they have conveniently disappeared. There is no reason that Yahoo can't just give commissioners this option. Yahoo, please give us a 2 week playoff round option!

Been sending an email to yahoo about this every year for the past 5 years. As recently as 2012 2-week finals were an option, but for some reason Yahoo decided to remove it. Baseball is a game of sample sizes, 1 week is not enough. Please yahoo bring back 2 week playoff matches!

Definitely needs to be added.

I agree. Less chance that a hot week wrecks a seasons worth of work.

Absolutely make the playoffs start in mid August and run for 6 weeks.... If Yahoo doesn't get this implemented next year we are strongly considering a move to ESPN's platform specifically for two week playoffs
So your playoffs would run for 6 weeks? and start in mid to late August?
