An attempt to spread the NFL to markets all around the country:

Teams that move:

Green Bay Packers become Milwaukee Packers;

Las Vegas Raiders become Portland Raiders;

I know some Panthers fans that would be furious if we were separated from Atlanta, nevermind what Dallas fans would do if they weren't with the Giants, Eagles, and Washington. While this might make a bit more geographic sense (not sure why the Titans would move to Memphis, they tried that and it didn't work) there are so many rivalries you need to consider. Additionally, why did you switch the two West divisions for the most part?

  • Team Relocations: Original Carolina Hurricanes from Raleigh to Charlotte.
  • Team Color Change: Tampa Bay Lightning re-introduce black. New Jersey Devils replace black with green again, but keep the Red and Black jerseys as throwbacks. Washington Capitals add the late 1990s-2000s gold as an accent color. St. Louis Blues bring back the 1990s red. Calgary Flames eliminate black. Los Angeles Kings bring back purple albeit as an accent color, and add throwback purple and yellow jerseys.
  • Team Name Change: Carolina Hurricanes to Raleigh Hurricanes.
  • Instead of 2 conferences with division, NHL is split up into four conferences and the new commish has limited inter-conference play, with only 42 games in a 94 game schedule, every team plays each other once (42 inter-conference games), but conference opponents play each other 4 times (52 conference games), for a total of 94 games.
  • Top 6 teams from each conference play in the playoffs, top 2 teams get a bye, while the bottom 4 teams face each other in a best of 5 "Stanley Cup Wild Card" round.

  • American TV: FOX and CBS have the rights to the Central and Pacific Conferences. In odd years, FOX has the Central part of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and CBS has the Pacific part of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and vice versa in the even years. NBC and ABC have the rights to the Atlantic and Metropolitan Conferences. In 4, NBC has the Atlantic part of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and ABC  has the Metropolitan part of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and vice versa in the even years.
  • Canadian TV: English rights go to Sportsnet, TSN and CBC. French rights go to RDS, TVA, and Ici Radio-Canada Télé.
  • The teams with a previous incarnation, like the new Winnipeg Jets, do not get their old history back which means the Avalanche keep the old Nordiques history, New Jersey Devils keep the old Scouts history etc.

Up next: Take me out to the ballgame! MLB is next.

Thanks nelroy78 for pointing out I had Florida Panthers twice and left out the Columbus Blue Jackets. Also moved Orlando to the Atlantic for a 3 way Florida division rivalry and sent Indy to the Metropolitan

Nice work but where did Columbus move to? I would give them Orlando’s spot, because you can’t put them in a separate conference from Florida and Tampa Bay.

 

Also that is a monstrosity of a league but that’s why they call this the “Pointless Realignment Outpost.” I would split the conferences into two 7-team divisions.

 

As I was typing I realized you have Florida in the Atlantic AND the Metro so I think you meant to put Columbus in the Metro. 
 

I would love for the Hurricanes to move to Charlotte to stick it to Raleigh because it looks like they are dumping the Checkers for the Chicago Wolves, I guess money talks. (but hope it will not be but for a year). I will remain a Canes fan though, can’t really blame the players for it. Doubt Raleigh and Charlotte would both have teams but what a rivalry that would be.

Taking the proposed MLB 2020 alignment and turning it into a permanent 6-division East-West alignment. I split the Central Divisions into separate leagues by time zones (except the White Sox had to go into the Eastern League to even them out) and I kept the old NL and AL East and West divisions intact except switching the Braves and Pirates.

 

Eastern League
AL East

Baltimore Orioles

Boston Red Sox

New York Yankees
Tampa Bay Rays

Toronto Blue Jays

 

NL East

Miami Marlins

New York Mets

Philadelphia Phillies

Pittsburgh Pirates

Washington Nationals

 

Mideast

Atlanta Braves

Chicago White Sox

Cincinnati Reds

Cleveland Indians

Detroit Tigers

 

 

Western League

Midwest

Chicago Cubs

Kansas City Royals

Milwaukee Brewers 

Minnesota Twins

St. Louis Cardinals

 

AL West

Houston Astros

Los Angeles Angels

Oakland Athletics
Seattle Mariners

Texas Rangers

 

NL West

Arizona Diamondbacks 

Colorado Rockies

Los Angeles Dodgers

San Diego Padres

San Francisco Giants


 

 

 


 

I decided to split up the Chicago teams, could let them play two series every year. The NY and LA teams are not in same division either. I was going to put the Royals in the Eastern League.

Oh man I knew I forgot someone, I will fix that! You are correct I meant to put Columbus in the Metro.

 

Usually my pointless realignments are way into the future of sports (One of them was 80 years from now, this one isn't but still pretty far) that's why it is a monstrosity haha.

 

You just gave me a great idea! I will say The "Charlotte Checkers" are today's Carolina Hurricanes, that team moved to Charlotte, and the new "Raleigh Hurricanes" are an expansion team that moved from Orlando, and Orlando shortly gets granted another expansion.

Big points for giving the NHL team in the Carolinas to the city that deserves it. I think a major league Checkers identity would be slick, especially if the team went back to the classic blue and orange color scheme.

Before I do the New TrueYankee26 Series: MLB post.. a sneak preview of a new Collegiate Athletic Association - The North American University Athletics Association (NAUAA - pronounced "Naw-aah").

 

Big Southeast (BSE):

  • Asheville State Crusaders*
  • Carolina Piedmont Professors**
  • Charleston Rays
  • Havana Crocodiles
  • Jacksonville Tech Panthers
  • Macon Mavericks
  • Miami State Suns
  • San Juan Borinqueños***
  • Savannah Pelicans****
  • Tampa-Ybor Corsairs

*Secular school despite the Crusaders name, founded as a Catholic school but became public. Despite that, they still have a large cathedral on campus.

**Located in Gastonia, North Carolina.

***Their baseball team is also known as Los Reyes (The Kings) because of their North Dakota State football like dynasty in baseball.

****Only religious school in the BSE (Southern Baptist) when Asheville State University became a public school.

Most people would, and I am a Braves fan...I was just going off that proposal that talked about putting the Braves in the Central and the Pirates in the East.

  • Boise Moose
  • Colorado Rockies
  • Houston Astros
  • Las Vegas Aviators
  • Los Angeles Dodgers
  • Sacramento River Cats

  • San Francisco Giants

 

Changes

  • Expansion Teams: Buffalo Bisons, Montreal Expos, Orlando Tropics, Philadelphia Keystones, Washington Senators, Des Moines Dynamite, Indianapolis Speed, Memphis River Boats, New Orleans Canes, St. Louis Browns, Albuquerque Isotopes, Los Angeles Stars, Omaha Express, Portland Beavers, Salt Lake Bees, San Antonio Fiesta, Brooklyn Avengers, Charlotte Knights, Durham Bulls, Hartford Captains, Virginia Colonials (Richmond, VA), Columbus Clippers, Louisville Slugs, Nashville Sounds, Oklahoma City Drillers, Tallahassee Sharks, Austin Diablos, Boise Moose, Las Vegas Aviators, Sacramento River Cats.
  • Team Relocations: Boston Blues expansion team to Hartford, because the Red Sox were still too popular and the Blues had a lousy 12 years before moving to Hartford to keep an NL presence in New England.
  • Switching Divisions: Houston Astros go back to the NL. They are placed in the NL West.
  • Team Color Changes: Boston Red Sox (add "Monster Green", which is the color of and named after.. you guessed it, a certain wall in left field in Fenway Park), New York Yankees (add Gold and Black (!!!!!) into their Midnight Blue (which is slightly brightened) and Silver color scheme, and add Red as an accent color on their alternates, to the shock of the baseball world)*, Tampa Bay Rays (1998-2007 Black, 1998-2000 Purple, 2001-2007 Green, 2008-present Powder Blue and Yellow) Chicago White Sox (bring back red), Oakland Athletics (Kelly Green replaces Hunter Green), Miami Marlins (Black and Teal of the Florida era is combined with Pink, Yellow and Blue), Philadelphia Phillies (back to Maroon), Arizona Diamondbacks (current Red and Black is combined with Purple and Teal of the World Series Diamondbacks), San Diego Padres (slightly brighten the Brown and add Orange as an accent color).
  • 12 games against division rivals, 3 games against intraleague opponents, 2 games against an interleague division rotated between 3 years + 2 games against a fixed interleague opponent (Yankees-Mets, Red Sox-Captains, Phillies-Keystones etc.) = 190 games.
  • 20 playoff teams, bottom 4 play in a best of 1 Play-In Round (lowest seed to advance plays #1 in the 1st Round, highest seed plays #2. Winner of the 1st Round goes to the Division Series, then Championship Series and then World Series.) Division Series stays best of 5, the rest are best of 7 as usual.
  • CBS and CBSSN shows a lions share of the National TV games as well as the All-Star Game and the World Series in response to missing out on getting back the NBA and losing a lot of AFC games to ABC. FOX still shows Saturday games, as well as up to 6 games every week on FS1 and FS2.

 

*Basically the new Yankees owner (who purchased the team from the Steinbrenner Family in 2035) found an opportunity to make more money by selling black hats, and midnight blue hats with the gold NY, and white, pinstriped hats. He would also purchase West Ham United (and thus end their ties with Manchester City) and make them a powerhouse.

Great Work @TrueYankee26 on the MLB Alignment, So I Can't Wait to see your Alignment for the Minor Leagues so here are some suggestions for Baseball and Football on Previous Posts

 

For Triple-A Baseball that you will post next (Affiliations in Parenthesis)

- Gwinnett Stripers (Atlanta Braves)

- El Paso Diablos (Austin Diablos)

- Fresno Grizzlies (Sacramento Rivercats)

- Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (Philadelphia Phillies)

- Norfolk Tides (Virginia Colonials)

- Reno Aces (Las Vegas Aviators)

- Rochester Red Wings (Buffalo Bisons)

- Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders (Philadelphia Keystones)

- Syracuse Mets (New York Mets)

- Tacoma Rainiers (Seattle Mariners)

- Toledo Mud Hens (Detroit Tigers)

- Tulsa Drillers (Oklahoma City Drillers)

- Worcester Red Sox (Boston Red Sox)

 

And if The NFL Could Get a Triple-A League for Minor League Football, Here's More Ideas

 

Note:The New Commish seems to be a fan of the Defunct USFL, WFL and the Arena Football League (as well as Arena Football 2), so some or most team names will carry over to the New Triple-A NFL

 

- Albany Firebirds (New York Giants or Jets)

- Anaheim Avengers (Los Angeles Rams)

- Austin Wranglers (San Antonio Commanders)

- Milwaukee Lumberjacks (Green Bay Packers)

- Portland Breakers (Seattle Seahawks)

- Reno Coyotes (Las Vegas Raiders)

- San Jose Sabercats (San Francisco 49ers)
