I like the idea of the new four-conference alignment because it eliminates the southeast and pacific divisions. I think "segregation" is bad. You put all kinds of new teams into one division with each other. That doesn't make them "part of" the league, it makes them an annex to the league.
5 recent expansion teams
3 recently relocated teams
2 established teams

It is interesting how that worked out back in 1998.

Or, that one established team will continue to be irrelevant, until one year they sort of just steamroll through the playoffs toward a championship. It can go either way.
