The Pointless Realignment Outpost

Recommended Posts

Lee.    413

Since some of you monkeys are bored as :censored:, and since no one likes pointless realignment posts crapping up real threads, I've created this thread specifically for you to post your pointless, unrealistic, and borderline asinine realignment ideas here.

Anyone from this point on who posts anything realignment-related in a real thread from hereon in deserves every amount of crap the rest of the community decides to heap upon them.

Go hog wild.

I like the idea of the White Sox and the Cubs playing more often (and possibly competing for playoff spots down the stretch), but I still dream of a Sox/Cubs World Series. With that in mind, I've developed something admittedly a little bit out of the box: seasonal divisions and separate post-season divisions. I don't have it all worked out yet, but here's a sampling:

SEASONAL DIVISIONS

AL Central

White Sox

Cubs

Cardinals

Twins

Indians

NL Central

Astros

Royals

Reds

Brewers

Tigers

POST-SEASON DIVISIONS

AL Central

White Sox

Reds

Astros

Brewers

Cardinals

NL Central

Cubs

Royals

Indians

Twins

Tigers

Think of the possible WS matchups:

Cubs/Sox

Cubs/Cards

Sox/Twins

Royals/Cards

Forget salary cap. Think baseball cap.

Red Hat League

Blue Hat League

Black Hat League

and DH stands for Designated Hat

This does mean the A's are screwed but they're screwed anyways.

The A's are fine and go in the Blue Hat League, because when you mix their yellow accent with blue, you get their primary green. It works perfectly!

It's good, but I think the NHL needs to expand more in order to get the alignment just right. I'm thinking Birmingham, Tallahassee, San Antonio, and possibly Des Monies. Also, move the Panthers to Winnipeg and rename them the Jets, then move them to Seattle, but keep the name and colors.

I was thinking something similar, actually. Also, the Thrashers and Flames should totally switch names/identities.

You don't have either Chicago (Bobby) or St. Louis (Brett) in the Hull division! HA! You stupid idiot. Realignment fail!

Here's my foolproof plan to appease all you traditionalists:

Contract the 'yotes and the Islanders to the AHL (let's face it, both are financial messes).

Promote the Moose and the Wolf Pack.

Moose rename themselves to the Winnipeg Jets, Wolf Pack rename themselves to the Whalers.

There!

Bobby played for the Jets long before their move to Phoenix and Brett played for a short time for the Stars.

You don't have to justify your plan to me. I was just joking around. I don't really think you're a stupid idiot.

This is the greatest thread in the history of Sports in General. Finally, the shackles of realignment have been loosed. I will subscribe to this thread & enjoy it like hell. This is almost as good as the Nutcracker thread.

Here's my idea for the NFL, for starter we contract the entire NFC except for the Rams, I'm mean will anyone really miss the Packers anyway. Also the AFC needs major realignment so here we go, I thought I'd name the new divisions after some football legends. Also the NFL needs to expand overseas so the new NFC will be the International Football Conference, the IFC.

AFC

Tyler Thigpen Division

-Kansas City Chiefs

-Miami Dolphins

-Denver Broncos

-Toledo (To be named later)-formerly the Raiders

Bubby Brister Division

-Pittsburgh Steelers

-Buffalo Bills

-New York Jets

-Jacksonville Jaguars

Tim Couch Division

-Cleveland Browns

-Denver Broncos

-Baltimore Ravens

-Tulsa Outlawzz-formerly the Patriots

Pacman Jones Division

-Tennessee Titans

-New York Jets

-Cincinnati Bengals

-San Diego Chargers

IFC

South American Division

-Lima Donkeys

-Rio de Janero Waxers

-Buenos Aires Argies

-Mexico City Drug Runners

European Division

-London Big Bens

-Glasgow Funny Accents

-Dublin Thiery Henrys

-Rome Fightin' Pizzas

-Rome(NY) Why are we heres

-Ukraine Freeze

Middle-East Divison

-Jerusalem Jews

-Baghdad (TBNL)

-Iran (TBNL)

-Berlin Panzers

Luxembourg Division

-Luxembourg Fightin' People from Luxembourg

Only because there isn't enough team for either Brady Quinn's fratitude or Kyle Orton's epic neckbeard. 2 Denver Broncos teams are necessary.
