This talking head even said it might have more impact to do it without a vote because it would seem less contrived. (paraphrased he used a different word than contrived)

The 197475 season saw another change to its playoff system to accommodate the league of 18 teams, twelve of which qualified for the playoffs. The top team from each division would earn a bye to the quarterfinal, while the second- and third-place teams from each division started their playoff run from a best-of-three preliminary round.
