-I think they gave a couple of reasons why they were concerned, but one of them was "competitive balance", since there were two conferences of 7 teams, and two of 8 teams, but only 4 teams made it into the playoffs.
But yes, I think it was just another negotiating ploy.
This. Originally, I was pissed that the players turned down realignment, but they might have done us a huge favor. Its a mathematical certainty the Jets would have worse odds of making the playoffs in a 8 team conference vs others in a 7 team conference. If this is fixed AND we get a reasonable travel schedule, realignment is a great thing.
