It's using tortured logic to find an excuse to prop up weaker conferences at the expense of putting the best teams into a playoff.
There won't be any out of conference games. Just games again the other division within the conference.
It takes trying to guess who is the best 10-2 team that should get into a playoff out of the equation. Games and playoff teams are decided on the field like in the NFL. It's sort of the old MLB setup before it got watered down with wild cards and interleague play.
Anything that moves away from people and computers guessing I'm all for.
