The league wants the regional rivalries, hence why it is done by geography. However, there is NO alignment that can please EVERY team. It is just not going to work.
Why do Detroit and Columbus have to be further pleased? They voted in favor of the previous proposal. Montreal and the Florida teams (or one of them) voted against the previous proposal; and the PA rejected it. What does any of that have to do with pleasing Detroit with this proposal?
