So a blind draw:a) Do you think players would be up for it?
b) Would you, as fans, want to see it? Imagine seeing Federer-Nadal in the first round
I take your wider point but the statment in bold isn't correct. The FA Cup draw might not be seeded but it's not the free draw you make it out to be - EPL and Chamopinship clubs don't enter until the 3rd round.
