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 a MAJORITY 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.

Rolling Schedule

5 Day schedule to get in Regular Season Games from when the league is rolled. The League Roll Date is the Date the Forum is Created for the Next Week. If there are games yet to be played after the 5 day period those players will have a 24 hour window to get games completed. Now I will make exceptions if both parties are trying to get it together and its just not happening. If you aren't playing a Human opponent there really isn't an excuse why you would be the last player to play

The league will Roll this Saturday If Games aren't completed earlier.

well...stark's dad (my grandfather) is in the hospital, so I feel comfortable to say that you can drop stark and he can pick up next week. He and I have been chatting and we might be moving to the NFC to add some players to that side of the conference. He and I arent 100% on that yet though, so its just a heads up at this point.

appreciate it I will drop stark now...ALC play asap

Sure what ever Zell, moving to the NFC to add more teams to that side. You are just afraid of me On the plus side woot division winners here I come if you do move

Done!

Well got my game in. In the rain and 17 mph cross winds. Either offensive was any good but Steelers D was on fire. Getting 2 pick 6s, 3 interceptions over all, 2 sacks, a number of hurries on the Palmer and quite a few tackle of a losses on the run as well.
The two pick sixes were an 80 yard return by Harrison and a 78 yard return by Hampton.
24-7 was the final score

I was going to say to spy...hold off for a few days and see if stark will be home from the hospital or not.

i would guess so...katie called me saying you were wasted and wanted me to tell her how to "fix it", lol

hahaha I was not wasted or drunk...it was nothing like st patricks day. she hasn't ever seen me drink really either but I was on the other side of tipsy lol I could have driven...either way...Im back now and trying to get everything reorganized. She said you seemed to have been drinking to...you talked to her all the way to my apartment so that made me laugh because all I said was well thats Mac for ya lol

well...seems that madden is being a asspain again...I have tried 3 times to play my game. The first one got to the two minute warning in the 4th and then told me my server connection was lost and the game would not be counted. The second time was the same issue at the start of the 2nd and the third game I played, I made it to the online franchise menu before it said my disc was unreadable...so I quit trying tonight. I will come back to it tomorrow.
