Hey guys.

I receive complaints about the scheduling mechanics of RZA for the league schedule. It is supposed to mirror the NFL way of scheduling games, where one division is playing different other divisions year by year.

I would like to rework the scheduling thing.

if you like to help, please tell, as long as you fulfill this requirements:

- you know how the NFL is changing its yearly schedule, and you are understanding what is written here:

Each team plays twice against each of the other three teams in its division: once at home, and once on the road (six games).

Each team plays once against each of the four teams from another division within its own conference, with the assigned division based on a three-year rotation: two at home, and two on the road (four games).

Each team plays once against one team from each of the remaining two divisions within its conference, based on the final division standings from the prior season: one at home, one on the road (two games).

Each team plays once against each of the four teams from a division in the other conference, with the assigned division based on a four-year rotation: two at home, and two on the road (four games).

(Yes, this is the scheduling used before the change to an additional game per season, and the one we are using in RZA - slightly adapted to our needs, the italic marked text is not active in RZA)

- you have some basic understanding of writing software code, no matter which language. You simply have some ability to read structured code, and structs like PHP arrays. However, you do not need to be a coding crack at all

If you fit this requirements, and would like to help, please send me a PM, subject "recreating the scheduler"

Thanks a lot.

Pete
