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.
Ok... So...would it be any LESS hard, for teams in the east to make the playoffs if there were two more teams in the west? Think about it.
I'll say it again...does anything going on in the western conference...have ANY impact on how difficult it is to make the playoffs in the east?
