It's not as simple as people want it to be with 1 team from each division and resulting in 1 team from 1 conference.
The decision for how conference champions are determined should be left to each conference. They don't have to all do it the same way. As long as rules are in place to determine the champion based on the play on the field, the subjective element is unnecessary and IMO undesirable.
