    This was a good. Definitely makes rounds 1 & 2 very very interesting.

    Thoughts?

    The players ranked 17-32 are going to be pissed.

    Whats worse is 17 vs 1 in round 1. They just made it much harder for themselves to do the seedings really.

    I wish they would get rid of the asinine 1 versus 3 and 2 versus 4 nonsense. I guarantee you a woman came up with that ridiculous idea.

    BG and others are not fans of it. Felt like this was a backwards move

    What' the 1 vs. 3 and 2 vs. 4?

    In past years, don't they do it so 1 and 2 are in opposite halves, and the 3 and 4 can be placed on either side of the bracket, based on a coin flip?

    If you look at past draws, it's inconsistent where the 3 and 4 seeds are placed, from year to year.

    I don't know what to think until it's in action.

    I don't care about seeding as much because a few top seeds lose early anyways.
