It's a nice idea, but you wind up losing too many rivalries. Why not keep the West Coast as one conference without moving the Rams? Arizona's already right there.

EDIT: What you're really proposing is four new teams. You could go 8, one for each existing division, and wouldn't have to realign anything.

I agree that the NFC Central and the AFC central don't make much sense. Both geographically and historically, it would work better if Minnesota and Detroit stayed in the NFC and keeping the Steelers and Browns in the AFC.

Also not a huge fan of Dallas in the AFC, just doesn't seem right to me. I also don't like that the Chargers or the Raiders, founding members of the AFL and AFC are being moved to the NFC.

I think Mexico City is a much better choice than the Dakotas. The couple of exhibition games in Mexico City have set NFL attendance records. Besides, the entire population of both Dakotas combined is 1.5 million. That would mean that 1 out of every 20 people in the both states would have to come to the games in order to fill up a 75,000 seat stadium. Realistically, there's no way you're going to see that. I feel like Portland and Salt Lake City would both be much better markets.

I'm interested to see how this pans out.

I'm sorry but having a Team in Toronto and Calgary, while removing a team in St. Louis doesnt make sense to me. Leave Canada out of it just to be safe. We have our CFL, 2 NFL teams coming in (especially one replacing the oldest professional sports team in North America, the Toronto Argonauts) would screw up a lot of things. A team in Monterrey Mexico may be a better choice than Mexico City. Calgary's team should be either Las Vegas or Portland. Oklahoma is Fine, Toronto's team should move to Quebec City if you really want to include Canada in it.
