If there isn't two Conferences then there isn't a Western Conference (other than the Pacific) that Detroit would be part of. And again, satisfying Detroit wasn't the problem with the previous realignment proposal; they agreed to it.

Yes, but Detroit wasn't the issue for why the previous proposal hasn't already been adopted. How does putting Detroit in the East change those issues that prevented the previous realignment proposal from being implimented? If anything, there will likely be more teams voting against this alignment proposal than there were against the last one. And what does this alignment proposal have to offer the PA's concerns?

I'm just asking how this idea changes anything for the PA. It only further improves Detroit's and Columbus' alignment scenario, which were already significantly improved with the previous proposal. Of course they're going to like this even more, but those two teams were never the issue with the previous proposal being rejected.
