So, if you had 10 teams, five in the west and 5 in the east, how would you work the schedule?
WOuld you keep the number of games at 18?
Would you just play each team twice? Which would make it easy?
Or would you want to see a larger number of games between division teams?
If you played the opposing division teams once, that would leave 13 games for teams in your own league, so you could play 3 of them three times and the fourth 4 times.
What do you think?
