    Because adding a game - that in many cases would be a more interesting matchup than the SB would make no money.. TV wouldn't air it and nobody would go.

    I propose a "Last Place" game - matching up the two worst teams in the league.
    The catch would be that the team would have to WIN and subsequently get the first pick in the draft.

    That could make some other problems arise. Say you are the starting QB for the sucky team.. and there is a surefire #1 QB coming out.. Say.. You are the 2011 Colts and Andrew Luck is coming out.

    What benefit would it be to you, as the incumbent starter, to try to win? If you could find a way to lose, they may settle with a defensive player or a WR at #2 overall, because that QB is guaranteed to be gone at #1.

    There's the rub for me.
