The new league talked logistics today for the first time.  There will be 18 teams and in most team sports those teams will be split into 3 divisions of 6 teams each.  In football, there will be 2 divisions of 9 teams each with teams playing two crossover games within the league each season.

One change is the playoff format and with three divisions the playoffs will expand to include 8 teams.  3 division champs and 5 wild card teams.
