Pretty much. The whole thing is about kissing Detroit's feet.

But honestly what really bothers me is that there was absolutely no reason to give divisions that much influence. I understand the reason behind the geography of it, because the Western Conference takes up 75% of North America in terms of mass while the East is only the Eastern most quarter. That's fine. But what does that have to do with the playoffs? Why couldn't they make new divisions and conferences just for travel/scheduling and keep the playoffs top 8?
