The wild card idea at least makes it so that better teams in stronger divisions get in over lesser teams in weaker divisions.
It also defeats the entire purpose of the realignment. What's the point of these divisions if there isn't divisional playoffs? There's no point at all. Even as far as scheduling is concerned, teams in the 8-team division only play their divisional rivals 1 game more than they play any other team in the league. So pathetic and pointless.
Just scrap this stupid plan and keep things the way they are.
