"Division alignment in 1970 was largely intended to preserve the pre-merger setups, keeping traditional rivals in the same division. Plans were also made to add two expansion teams, but this would not take place until 1976, seven years after the merger." This makes no sense given the fact that the NFC alignment was randomly selected from a vase. there was 5 plans in the vase for the nfc the one selected was the ONLY one had Minnesota in the central and Dallas in the East, so it is hard to say the plans were designed to keep pre 1970 setups — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 00:49, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
