Easily avoidable. Monday winners can't play the following Saturday. They don't have to play each other. They could easily face Sunday winners from the week before. They get a guaranteed Sunday slot the following week if they win. It's actually LESS of a disadvantage than the current system which forces Sunday first round winners to play again the next Saturday in a short week against teams that had a bye week and were at home resting for the last 2+ weeks with no travelling.

Their ratings for those two slots are currently 0.0.
