I'm American, so I might be biased. But I prefer a playoff system to determine a champion over just whoever clinches the top of the table. EPL is already over on April 18 with 5 weeks to go! The main interest is now which bad teams will suck the most and be relegated. If American sports worked like EPL, the Washington Capitals would be an NHL dynasty! Sure whoever is best in the regular season, is likely the best team, but best team, doesn't necessarily = champion, and I prefer the drama, upsets and entertainment value of a playoff with a winner take all final game.
