Realignment should be about geography/time zones, especially in the West....and nothing more.
You make my point exactly. I only chose those players as examples of what the West misses now. In the future it could be 180 degrees in the opposite direction. I agree completely that it is geography and time zones, but it also should make travel more equitable between the conferences. Why wouldn't a FA consider an eastern team over a western team if he spent more time at home and less o the road??
