Not to mention that this system is simply unfair and makes the league look like a carnival sideshow. I don't care whether its Detroit or Columbus, but one of those teams needs to stay in the west.
So, maybe instead of records, they should use market-size and revenues to determine which teams make the play-offs. Players would love it, owners would hate it. Why? Because now instead of fudging numbers to show less revenues, team would be doing the opposite. Players salaries as a result would go up.
