Xfl question?

I'm confused about one thing looking at the schedule. There are 10 weeks of football and no week off for any team. This means there are 10 games. But there are only 8 teams. So they'll be a couple of repeat games. But it's not like every team faces eachother twice, this means some teams will have to face super tough teams twice but some teams will get to face super weak teams twice. Isnt this unfair? Especially since who is in division championship game is based on wins and loss record.

    To my understanding it's like the NFL they place the division teams twice.

  • 10 Games: 5 at Home, 5 on The Road. Play every team in your Division Twice and play 2 of the Teams in the other Division. Doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to figure this out. Accept it for what it is, the Inaugural Season of a Brand New Football League. Lots of people up here complain about the fact that The New England Patriots get to play The Jets, Dolphins and Bills twice a year? Deal with it. You play the teams on your schedule and that's that.

    You don't need to play everyone in the league the same number of games. Most sports do something similar.

    You play everyone in your division twice.  You play the other division once.

    How much more balanced to you want it to be?

    What sports in the US do you think play a perfectly fair balanced schedule?

    All US leagues have unbalanced schedules.  NFL, MLB, MLS, NHL.  In all of these some teams get tougher schedules than others.  There are various reasons they do this mostly around travel and trying to create artificial rivalries.

    Double round robin in division (6 games) Home and away just like the NFL

    Single round robin vs other division. (4 games)

    6+4=10. 

    I'm not sure why that's confusing. Logically, that would produce the best possible outcome while keeping the season length reasonable.
