State of Flr is a better rival for big north-east US cities. The way they would have it would radically change in 3 years. How forward thinking is that unless they suspect not 1 but 3 franchise relocations
I think your missing the point. Colorado doesn't want to play in the Pacific, Nashville doesn't want to play in the eastern time zone, and for some reason you have them with the north east instead of the south, Columbus and Detroit both want to be in the west.
The whole thing is basically because of time zones. This proposal moves Dallas, Colorado, Winnipeg, Detroit, and Columbus into divisions that actually help them. Your proposal is just creating the same problems.
