Not really shocking that this happened and most of it is probably as people mentioned posturing by Fehr. The argument of a bias is pretty clear though in the realignment. Consider how easy it would be to move a team like Detroit or Nashville to one of the Eastern divisions and make the playoffs the top 8 teams, or heck go the whole AFC/NFC route and you have an even 15 teams in each. But the system as it was proposed there is a clear bias towards the two east coast teams and specifically the green division. I still think the best idea would be for teams to travel east and west across the league and to divide teams into a north and south conferences... Travel be damned, if players don't want to travel cross-country go get a real person job, and enjoy your new life. Travel is part of being a pro athlete and if you can't handle it then you're in the wrong line of work.
