Why did they move away from division heavy schedules?
With all this talk about realignment, I have to wonder why did they move away from the schedule where teams played their division 8 times a season?
Playing within the division leads to shorter travel times (for most teams anyway), more revenue, and better games to watch. Inter-conference play sucks. Who wants to watch inter-conference games?
If they went to a schedule where they played everyone in the division 8 times and the rest of the conference 5 times each, wouldn't that achieve most of what they're trying to achieve with this realignment? I don't think too many people will miss the inter-conference games.
