I can't stand the divisional playoff format. There's basically no point in trying for the top seed when you're going to get the same matchup in the second round no matter if you finish 1-3. Teams are supposed to be rewarded with a strong regular season with easier matchups in the first two rounds and the divisional format just makes a mockery of that.
I guess they are poised for a western team to move east, or im sure their preference, for two eastern expansion teams.
The players will surely love the Florida road trip in WInter. And for fans, c'mon, 24 hour road trip in the car to the beach in winter for games.
I remember the old days of the divisional playoffs, and they did create some good rivalries, but after a while, a few years of it, you were longing for something different at times.
There has been a lot of complaints about some schedules having much more travel, i guess they could've realigned to make every ones travel schedule roughly the same amount of travel miles and road trips. No one fights for that kind of fairness though it seems.
