Everyone should agree with this.
I will say this... they should still make the playoffs for winning the division. I don't think this has ever happened... but in theory it could. If the weakest division had the top team not make the playoffs on pts, but make it on winning the division... I wouldn't mind. Just have them seeded 8.
And then the team who should have been seeded 8th and is now ninth will be pissed off. That only translocates the problem. And they lose a lot more by missing the playoffs completely rather than another team just losing a home advantage. At least they still get to play.
The bottom line is this, people want what ever system helps their team win. If we were in Dallas's place we would all be defending it as a great idea.
In all reality it's fine the way it is. People just feel the need to fight for every little advantage they can, reasonable or not.
