Basing it on the performance of the division, instead of on something a skosh more objective like a round rating, seems additionally wrong-headed.

The trouble is, I suppose, that's it hard to be objective about what qualifies as a "better" alternative. And probably particularly hard when you're the one in the playoff, or when the playoff...
