LEAGUE RULES

TRADE/FREE AGENT RULES:

1) Trades: Both teams must post the agreed trade in the weekly thread. I will then examine the trade, and if I think it is an unfair trade, I will veto. If both teams would like to "challenge" my veto, we will hold a league vote, and I will need 2/3 majority to overturn my veto by the end of the sim period. If I am involved in a trade, Zellbridge will act as commissioner, and examine the trade, and we will follow the same path. If Zell and I trade, it will automatically be put to league vote. If a trade is approved by the league, it will be processed directly after the league is simmed. Week 6 trades, it will be processed right before the sim, since that is the deadline.

PROPER TRADE REQUEST FORMAT:
Team: (Your Team Name)
Request: Trade with (Team you are trading with)
(Team) Gets:
Player A- Position, Rating
Player B- Position, Rating
Player C- Position, Rating

(Team) Gets:
Player A- Position, Rating
Player B- Position, Rating
Player C- Position, Rating

In the situation of a Human/CPU trade the league will decide if the trade is fair. All that is needed to pass a trade is 5 votes for Yes.

During the Season Free Agency Will Look Like this:

Free Agent Pickups: Any player who is out for 3 or more weeks, may be replaced by a free agent. You must pick up a free agent from the same position. Only exceptions are if the free agent would be used in another capacity, and please explain that in your FA request post (IE- Your tight end gets hurt, but you want to replace him with a WR, because he is your 4th string WR, then you may pick up a WR). ZelbrigeN will gather and evaluate all free agent requests, and on about the last day of the sim period, he will send me a PM with all free agent requests. After the week gets simmed, I will process all free agent pickups, so NO ONE should be touching the free agents, regardless of the situation.

PROPER FREE AGENT REQUEST FORMAT:
Team: (Your Team Name)
Request: Free Agent Pickup
Injured Player: (Name- Position, Injury Length)
Adding Player: (Name- Position)
Dropping Player: (Name- Position)

Up til week one you will have the opportunity to balance your team through FA. Pick up people where you need depth or where you want to. You are in Control. Now this is something also I would like to throw out there. You don't need to replace the position with the position lost. Hence you are happy with your back ups for the position lost but still feel like you need to drop a player. Or better yet just want to drop a player due to lack of production.

Raiders Get:
Fred Jackson-RB-83
Shaun Springs-CB-80
Bryan Scott-SS-79

FOR

Buffalo Gets:
N. Asomugha-CB-99
R.Mcclain-MLB-80

Holy crap, for serious?!?! I need to start looking to make some trades!

Well that should be fun to watch between spy and zell

Leroy this only if its ok by the league

When do you want to play Z?

Wow, nice trade. Best CB in the game for some no names. I need in on this deal. I think I will trade Curtis Painter and Donald Brown, and one of my draft picks for Darelle Revis. Ndamugan Suh here I come

Suh is not interested in joining the Colts!

Well...I get home from my trip on Sunday....so it will have to be some evening this week...maybe Wednesday...say...830eastern?
Also...I veto the bills request to the raiders...they won't need the rb or cb and the safety wouldn't do anything major for them...so I vote no.

I agree with Zell. McFadden + Bush is good enough. vote no

Wednesday at 830 pm EST should work.

I also have to vote no on the trade. As the resident Al Davis I dont see what the Raiders gain. No GM would make that deal.

McFadden is injured for 6 weeks btw...Im glad to see the response being quick.

I know. You did well with the team last year. I don't have a problem with the trade in your case. However, it will spurn a lot of trades with teams that don't have the same needs. If you want to institute a trade policy for teams rated less than 80 for a single sweetheart trade of one player I can support that. My earlier objection was regarding realistic nature of trade to value from the GM perspective. From a video game competitive balance perspective I see the value.

Right, in terms of player overalls, it seems legit enough but no way does that trade really happen. Because what happens when McFadden comes back is Fred Jackson gets 3 carries a game for the rest of his Raiders career and then gets dumped.

Any news on when I can play my game?

Sorry, but im also gonna have to vote no on the bills trade as well.

onewild...who are you playing?

The computer but it says to hold off playing until something has been confirmed

grr double post

onewild, I think you can play now...so go for it....but damn...my schedule is nuts...i play 5 different players in the next 6 weeks. To make matters harder...4 of the 5 players were in the playoffs last season and the first one is the defending world champ. gah...lol

Do ya have any open teams with in your league? Is there a place that you can let
the commish of the league know that you will like to apply to get in? If these teams
are available i would like a chance to play as any one of them. Titians, Chargers, Chiefs
or Bengals thanks ALC. Not to over step my boundry but to trade for the best cornerback
in the game for very little is just plain robbery and would hurt the league in the long run
peace ALC

Well It Was more to test the system of how people would respond. So that is also why I was wanting it to be a league call on trades vs one.

One wild go ahead and play...ALC feel free to pick up any of the available teams the bengals might have already been played against for week one. The only team you mentioned that is taken ATM is the chargers.

Thanks for your opinion on the trades.

-commish

woot for a system that works....also, spynavy..I hate to be a pain about this, but can we bump the game to 8 eastern Tuesday night? I forgot that there is a show my roommate watches on wed at the same time we are suppose to play so there would be a fight if we stuck to that time.

Yep gotta love working systems

Spy has to play against 8 human players this year maybe he will lose

I play Spy next match, I just want to put it out there that if I win, that will be the biggest upset in the history of sport. So no pressure mate

well...I play him this week...and if I win...then I will just be that much more pissed off that I lost to the bastards, I mean, the bills in the playoffs.
