2022 Season Format
The league executive met recently, and have approved a new structure for the 2022 playing season.

The new format will be as follows:

For 2022 we are going to a single division schedule for 13 games.  All teams play each other one time. This will provide every team the opportunity to be eligible to 'win' their way into the A pool playoffs - and not be relegated to B from the outset.

After 13 games, teams will be divided into two playoff pools based on overall record (top 8 in A and bottom 6 in B).  We will play 4 more games for seeding within those divisions (random draw schedule, against teams from within your division). 

For the playoffs, teams will be seeded within their division based on overall record . 

Playoff Round 1 for A will be 1v8, 2v7, 3v6, and 4v5.  In B, the top two teams will get a bye (play a ‘for fun’ game), with 3v6 and 4v5. 

Playoff Round 2 in A will have winners play each other, and losers playing a Consolation Round. In B, winners will play the two bye teams, with losers playing in the Draft Pick game (winner gets first overall draft pick next season). 

Playoff Round 3 will have all winners (except the Draft Pick game) play in the Finals  - A, B, and A Consolation.
