I bet you Detroit's TV deals are locked in and won't be up for renewal for years anyway, so there will be a 0.0% revenue increase in Detroit. And I don't see ratings going any higher anyway.
As hard as people try, they can't come close to justifying uneven conferences. It doesn't benefit the league at all.
Most of the biggest TV markets are in the east, and now you are going to make it harder for those teams to make the playoffs? Talk about stupidity.
