    Default New league schedule (vote decided)

    This will more or less be the official scheduling vote. We will find a consensus here, confirm that a schedule can be made to that specification, then ratify to make it all nice and tidy.

    All schedules are for 162 games. We will maintain that number no matter what.

    Option 1

    14x7 games in division (7h, 7a), 8x8 games out of division, in league (4h, 4a), no interleague

    Option 2

    14x7 games in division (7h, 7a), 6x8 games out of division, in league (3h, 3a), 1x16 game per team interleague (16 gms total)

    Option 3

    9 or 10x7 games in division (who knows), 6x8 games out of division, in league (3h, 3a), 3x16 games per team interleague (48 gms total)

    Please vote on one of the above. Unless someone really blows me away with a great idea otherwise, these are the only three options.

    Those who opted for #3 and wanted interleague are going to be disappointed if option #1 wins by 1 or 2 votes.

    I can't imagine why people don't like option 2. It's perfect, AFAIC. Weighted in-division, a taste of interleague so we have something different... The more things change the more they stay the same.

    Having thought about it more, I'd like to change my vote from option 1 to option 2. In mapping out a possible schedule, the format fits better.

    Hint: I've actually completed an option 2 schedule.

    I'm tempted to count Option 3 votes as also a vote for Option 2.

    I'm also tempted to just fiat Option 2, based upon PT already having a schedule mapped out. Thanks PT!

    to make sure more than five owners wanted a 16 game interleague component in the schedule?

    I was a bit pissy last night. It doesn't matter to me in the slightest whether we play interleague or not, though (in full disclosure) I voted for option 1. It really makes no difference to me whether we play 5 games against every other team in the league, or we play all 162 games in our own division, or anywhere in between. My question is more "why did we put up two separate polls asking owners to vote on a schedule format they would prefer if we're just going to fiat a schedule anyway?"

    FYI, I also am in possession of a partially completed non-interleague schedule. I just switched focus to the one I posted when it looked like more people had voted for option 2/3.

    At this stage, even the three remaining votes cannot push Option 1 over the hump.

    Consider the second option as the winner by simple majority.
