That probably has something to do with it. Plus Detroit and Columbus aren't west. They exist in the same physical reality as every other ETZ team. They're further west than other teams in the ETZ, but that doesn't make them western teams.
Just like Dallas, Minnesota, and Winnipeg might be further west than most teams, but they're not western cities.
