A reasoning to support a Wildcard Playoff Play-in with 8-team Conferences

Whether the League calls these groupings Divisions or Conferences is irrelevant - in this proposed alignment, the Eastern teams have a choice - they can be stuck with grossly unfair playoff qualification odds, or be stuck with the "burden" of an early trip to the West Coast that would probably work out to one such trip, per team, per generation, on average.
Call me biased, but if I were an Eastern team owner I think I would take my chances with the latter option.
Nevertheless, in any event, assuming the league does go with any form of the crossover rule (or "wild card") then the argument against my suggested 7-7-7-9 distribution remains invalid.
