See, that's what you don't understand. You keep making up things that I'm not actually saying. I've been very clear this whole thread. I never said "we shouldn't" do anything. I'm saying that if you don't want to be subject to the very tiny percentage of the process that is "arbitrary," then you need to play well enough to ensure that you are instead part of the 94% for whom the process is not "arbitrary." I also said that the small percentage of the process for which the selection is arbitrary, does not invalidate the entirety of the process as "arbitrary."
Don't forget the 80% of teams who play BAD enough to "not be on the bubble". I understand if we don't want to be subjected to the arbitrary process we need to either play good enough to be a lock or bad enough to not be considered... but my point is, SG can't just snap his fingers to make us good enough to not be a part of the arbitrary process. We both know he is giving it his all, fighting through unbelievable bad luck and surrounding circumstances, and has still vastly improved this program, as a whole.
