Divisional Alignment

Football starved, I was just perusing through CBS Sports selection of online articles when I found the following useful tool:  If you are unable to visit the link, in short it is a display of the United States with all the various teams logo’s placed over their corresponding city.  Not that this is the first time I’ve wondered this, but why are the Cowboy’s a part of the NFCE?  Wouldn’t it make more sense if they were a part of the NFCW.  Furthermore, wouldn’t it make more sense that the Rams be a part of the NFCE, considering that they are further East and closer to the other NFCE team’s?

Imagine that for just a moment.  Our interdivisional foes would be the Cardinals, 49ers, and Seahawks.  If only…

Considering that the 49ers and Cardinals are already considered rivals by many, it’s not like TV ratings on games would hurt too much as a result of the change.  Can anybody lend perspective on this obvious misalignment?  Where would one begin in petitioning such a change?  Would you be in favor of the change or are you happy with the way things are now?  Just curious…

I am 35, married and a father of 2 boys. I have been a Cowboys fan since Jimmy Johnson took over; not because I had anything against Tom Landry, but because it just so happens I was old enough to start following and understanding football right as that new era began. Since then, I haven't missed games if I could help it.
