Freidman goes through "latest" alignment plan.
Two conferences, each with two divisions.
For the sevens (Midwest and Pacific) it looks like this:
32 games vs. Eastern Conference (one home, one away vs. each opponent).
21 games vs. other division in Western Conference (teams with the extra home game will be rotated every season).
29 games vs. own division (you will play one team four times instead of five).
For the eights (Atlantic and Central), it looks like this:
28 games vs. Western Conference (one home, one away).
24 games vs. other division in Eastern Conference (teams with the extra home game will be rotated every season).
30 games vs. own division (you'll play two teams five times, and five teams four times).
One question -- will the Canadian teams be forced to play each other five times because of Canadian broadcast pressure, or will it be spread around?
