But I have to agree with everyone that H2H is more fun, with a winner and loser every week. Make sure the schedule provides that everyone plays each other at least twice for sweet revenge matchups. Last year our league had two divisions, the two division winners make the playoffs (but not necessarily a first-round bye; overall seeding determines that - top two seeds get a bye), and the next four teams. Team #6 made the playoffs last year on a record tiebreaker (at my expense, lol), and won the whole thing.
You have an unusual setup not to allow Division Winners to get a bye in the first round. You are just eliminating the purpose of divisions. If your league was one big division, your seedings would be the same as if you had two divisions.
