I was making a scenario of what would happen if Disney/ABC would return to the radio business and merge with Cumulus Media and reacquire stations of the former ABC Radio division, Mr. @dfwabel!. And I'm sure that they are smart enough not to create a new radio division and they won't do that, but Disney/ABC would likely want to acquire more of its TV network affiliates from different owners, prompting into a great expansion of the ABC Owned Television Stations division, that would go in this way, according to my scenario:

The were smart enough to Citadel in 2006 and signed LMAs with Cumulus a few years ago. The same Cumulus which just got out of bankruptcy.

 

There's little money in radio, they're going back in regardless of the you knowing the call letters.

 

This is more pointless than any sports realignment concept.

So what about my sports league realignments concepts, Mr @dfwabel?. I'm just referring to my NLL, NHL, MLB, MLL and MLS realignments!.

Since you asked me, I have think all of them are terrible since you've really never been to any of these US markets. You're just naming stations like NJTank did for his updates based on Wikipedia.

 

Just slow your (very limited) role.

I'm so sorry for my very limited and too much slow role in this topic, @dfwabel .

Probable names for the expansion Seattle team are Kraken, Metropolitans or Totems.

I like it, although I would’ve moved the Sacramento team to Las Vegas. Anybody think MLS would benefit from division play?

Honestly I was more worried about Arizona and Colorado, but I think it works.

Why are the Pirates and Montreal in the Central and the Reds in the East? As much as I hate that the Pirates are currently in the Central and Atlanta is in the East, in the scenario above the new Montreal team should definitely be in the East.
