It's insane that the "wildcard" system even exists in that proposal, as if it's somehow supposed to fix the unbalanced conferences without any crossover between them. Unless each conference had a 7 team division and an 8 team division the wildcard is completely pointless - it's still 8/14 and 8/16. If that was the case, it'd be a great way to balance it out (essentially what the CFL does). Makes me think they originally had it that way, Detroit forced a move to the East and then they forgot to take it out. No point at all unless a 5th place team in the East can make the West playoffs if they have more points than a 4th place team.
