With the addition of a 6th team, the league is put into a position we need to evaluate how to schedule the additional number of games for the upcoming season. 2 options are up for consideration and we are looking towards the players in the league to help with deciding which option to go with. Based off of the feedback from this survey the board will make a decision for the upcoming year. The differences between each format are listed below, with links to what each format could look like. There are several factors that go into determining the schedules that could impact either format. Please review each schedule and provide your feedback for which one you would prefer.
