For a 30 team league there is a cycle of 6 schedules.
There are two sets of 6, one that is 16 weeks, and one that is 17, so each team has a bye week
Each set really has just 3 different schedules, one for a given division playing each division from the other conference. The other three are effectively the same with home & away reversed. This is necessary because in cycle 1, where Div A plays Div X, for the matchup of the two first places teams the Div A winner is home. If just 3 were used, every 3 years when Div A played Div X the Div A winner would always be home. This way next time around is gets reversed.
They based on the NFL's 30 team schedule formula.
It's recommended to use them in order or reverse order, but doesnt really matter which one you start with. The idea is to rotate the 3 non-conference divisions. So an order of 1,5,3,4,2,6 for instance, would still give proper rotation.
Div A(5) vs Div X(5)
Div B(5) vs Div Y(5)
Div C(5) vs Div Z(5)
Div A(5) vs Div Z(5)
Div B(5) vs Div X(5)
Div C(5) vs Div Y(5)
Div A(5) vs Div Y(5)
Div B(5) vs Div Z(5)
Div C(5) vs Div X(5)
Be sure that whichever of your divisions you use as Div A is always Div A, or the matchups wont work right from year to year. You can use team city, abbreviation, or nickname. Just be sure each is unique. And finally, once you enter in the teams and hti one, you should be able to use your back button and have the teams still in there, and switch to a different cycle if you want to look them over first. Also, entering teams and trying the same cycle more than once wont change anything. It doesnt randonly generate anything. It basically has 6 separate schedules stored and replaces the teams to suit your standings.
