That's nice, but irrelevant. It's still makes no sense to name a division after something that doesn't apply to over half the teams in the division.

Uh.... so? That's true of any region named after a direction. Doesn't change the fact that the region I highlighted is the Midwest, so having a division named after the region when over half of the markets that will be represented within it aren't part of the Midwest makes no sense.

Central makes far more sense in every way for that division. Not to mention that the majority of the soon-to-be-old Central will be part of the new Midwest.
