Huh, that is a good point. Plus, in that off year when only 2 do qualify it helps ensure ALL 4 conference quarterfinals are "divisional."
To be sure, I wouldn't mind starting from a 90s-style 4-division setup. Adding quasi-divisional playoffs and a 2-team guarantee from each division would be worth-while additions. Ensuring a 3rd team... it creates the appearance of parity, I suppose. ??
