WEST

Here's another thought: With only 16 teams, you create two conferences with 2 divisions in each. To get a 72 game schedule, for example, this would involve teams playing:

Each team in their division: 8 times (24 games)
Each remaining conference team: 6 times (24 games)
Each non-conference team: 3 times (24 games)

I'm sorry, but with these teams being as competitive as they will be, seeing Toronto and Detroit do battle 8 times in a season will do a world of good for TV ratings. These teams will come to despise oneanother, as they should. In sports, hatred is good.
