15 teams per conference. Winner of each division gets an automatic playoff berth. Spots 3-8 are determined by record. This would be much more fair because the top 8 teams from both conferences make the playoffs.
^ This. I really don't understand why this became so difficult. It's like the league used a shotgun to kill a fly. The proposed playoff format was a complete joke
