Because people are whining that it wouldn't be "fair" if the 5th place team in the Atlantic has a better record than the 4th place team in the Central. I say too bad, but they are worried about being fair. Was it fair that Seattle made the play-offs at 7-9 while the Giants and Tampa were left out at 10-6? Probably not, but too bad. That is how the cookie crumbles.
