Mixed Playoff Format Option (single elim + 2 wk final)
I'd like to have the option to start the playoffs with single elimination then have a 2 week final. Unlike some, I wouldn't want the finals to last through week 17, that's dumb. I'd want the finals to last through week's 15 & 16. The playoffs would obviously have to begin a week sooner. If 4 teams qualify, the playoffs begin in week 14. The max playoff allotment would be 6 teams with #1's getting a first rd bye and the playoffs beginning in wk 13. It's something different...

Yes you are correct, a single slim + 2 wk final. I would not entertain this option UNLESS I was able to conclude the season still in week 16. Week 17 is garbage!
The only change you're really suggesting is a two-week final since all playoff formats are currently single-game elimination anyway.
