  1. Currently looking for a couple more owners to fill a new start up league with me and a few other fellow commissioners of other leagues. We have 3 requirements going into joining 1) you have commish'd a league or currently are. 2) you are a heavy in the trade dept. all owners currently involved are heavy traders and like to wheel and deal quite a bit. 3) don't have a track record of abandoning teams. Looking for a min 5 year commitment from anyone coming in. This will be a superflex league with a $150 yearly buy in. This will be a commissioner coop league so after the first year it goes to a 3 headed body on running the league cycling on whoever wins their divisions. So due to that majority of the rules will be voted on before the initial draft so I'm not going to post majority of the scoring but do have a current format set up but may change slightly. Also majority of the owners are wanting to do Devy for rookies. Half the owners have done devy half have not so if you haven't it's not a big deal. Will be played on MFL and Leaguesafe is the current funds holder but may look into site with less fees and easier payouts Message me with any questions or interest
  2. Starting a new startup dynasty league with bunch of Game of Thrones fans keeping the theme with the teams. All teams will be houses represented in the show where each owner will pick a house and banner from the following link here... http://static.comicv...house-house.jpg there will be 3 divisions: Westeros, Essos, and Sothoryos with 4 teams in each division. Winner of each division will win $150 each. Playoffs are a full league 12 team format with div winners getting first week bye and highest overall reg season points leader of the final 9 awarded the last bye for the first week. Additional playoff rules are listed below in the bylaws in regard to draft picks and so on. It's a 12 team league, $100 yearly fee with 100% payout minus league fees handled thru MFL and Leaguesafe.

For this method of drafting, league owners should choose a draft date far in advance. If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to draft a player (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would allow the hosting site (MFL) to select the highest ADP ranked player as their draft choice. Maiden Draft Rules The league’s maiden draft would allow all owners to reserve a particular draft spot. First, league Owners would be randomly selected to pick their draft position. Owners would declare their draft spot in a forum thread created by the Commissioner. If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to declare their draft spot (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would be randomly selected to fill any remaining draft spots at the end of this process. The league’s maiden draft would utilize a reversed, snake-style format (1-12, 12-1, 1-12, etc.) for all draft rounds. Rookie Draft: Draft order for the league’s annual Rookie draft (held within 3 weeks after the seasons' official NFL draft) would be determined by the Championship tournament from the previous season for the last eight draft slots (1.05 – 1.12), and the Consolation Tournament from the previous season for the first four draft slots. (1.01 – 1.04). The Rookie draft would utilize a non-reversal, snake-style format (1-12, 1-12) for each round. (5 rounds total) The Rookie draft would be an e-mail (offline) draft, with each owner having 12 hours to determine their selection. If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to draft a player (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would allow the hosting site (MFL) to select the highest ADP ranked rookie player as their draft choice. Free Agency Off-season Roster Sizes: During the offseason for existing Dynasty Teams, Owners will be allowed to fill up to 35 roster spots through trades and free agents from the available player pool. Two separate cut events would take place prior to the start of the NFL regular season. The first cut to 28 spots would be after the 3rd week of the NFL pre-season has finished (Sunday night). The final cut to 25 spots (including TAXI) would be after the last week of the NFL pre-season has finished (Sunday night). If Owners do not have their rosters trimmed down by the League's cut-off dates, the Commissioner can move players from the Owner's roster to the free agency pool, starting with the Owners' last drafted player (ex: for 25 player rosters, only the players' first 25 draft picks would be retained) Waiver Wire During the regular season, there are two waiver periods. The first waiver period utilizes a FAAB (Free Agent Acquisition Budget) blind bidding process, and the second waiver period uses a “First Come, First Served” method once the first waiver period has expired. These waiver periods last through Week 17 of the regular season. Waivers would not be allowed after the calendar year ends. Players that are released to the waiver wire would be eligible for pickup during the next FAAB waiver wire period. Free Agent Acquisition Budget Waiver Claims: FAAB blind bidding waivers would start on Tuesday at 2:00 AM ET, allowing each league owner to bid on available free agents. The FAAB would have a set amount set aside for acquiring players during the restricted waiver period. Blind bids would be submitted by each owner for particular players they would like to acquire. The starting budget for each season would be $200 unless adjusted by majority vote prior to the start of the regular season. The order of FAAB waiver priority is determined by highest bid, with tying bids pitting Overall Winning Percentage records for first priority. Waivers continue within this process, with the order of desired players in an Owner's cue being addressed until all waiver claims have been processed. The deadline for FAAB blind bidding on free agents is Wednesday at 11:00 PM CT. First come, first served waivers would begin immediately afterward. First Come, First Served Waivers: After the restricted FAAB period has ended, owners can submit a regular waiver claim for an available free agent after protected waivers clear on Wednesday. Regular waiver claims for free agents during this non-restricted, first come-first serve period are available until kickoff time of the free agents’ particular game. Off-season Waivers: The period for off-season waivers begins after the first weekend following the NFL Rookie Draft through the beginning of the regular season. Off-season waivers would occur during the 1st & 15th of every month, starting in May and continuing through the week before the start of the NFL regular season. Waivers during this period of time would be blind bid in nature, adopting the weekly waiver schedule used during the regular season outlined above. Only non-rostered, non-rookie players would be considered available for this period of time. Off-season waivers would utilize a FAAB system, adopting the regular season budget ($200) for this period. Offseason waiver FAAB budgets do not carry over to the regular season, with any remaining balance zeroed before the regular season starts. First come, first served waivers would not be available during the offseason. All waiver claims would be blind bid in nature. Scoring System The league scoring system would be determined by league owners prior to the start of the regular season. Owners are encouraged to adopt a standardized system of point accrual, with variations based on preferences voted on by majority rule. Tiebreakers Tiebreakers would reference each team's total touchdown count as an alternative method of scoring H2H matchups. If these totals are also tied, total bench points would be a secondary method of scoring. Regular Season Week 1 - 12, H2H matchups Playoffs Week 13-15, Championship & Consolation final matchup Week 16-17 with combined score determining the winners Playoff Rules Playoff brackets wil feature all 12 teams in a Championship bracket ranked by Divison winners by win percentage for first 3 bye games and most total points for the season of the remaining 9 teams for the 4th bye. The following 8 teams will be ranked by overall win percentage seeded 5-12. Four playoff wk1 winning teams move on to play bye teams. Four playoff wk1 losing teams are placed in Consolation bracket to compete for Rookie Draft pick position ranked by two worst overall win percentage teams to matchup against each other and two better overall win percentage to matchup against each other. Winner of consolation bracket awarded rookie pick 1.01, second 1.02, winner of two losing teams awarded 1.03, loser receives 1.04. Championship bracket rookie picks are based off overall in percentage of playoff wk2 losing teams from worst receiving 1.05 to best receiving 1.08 Losing teams of playoff wk3 will complete for rookie picks 1.09 & 1.10 Losing team of championship game received rookie pick 1.11, and winner of the league will receive 1.12 Championship Bracket: The top 3 division winning teams by record are the top seeds and receive first-round byes ranked by win percentage with tie breaker being overall points scored. Remaining overall points scored during the regular season will receive final bye The remaining 8 playoff teams will complete in tradition bracket system ranked by win percentage tie breakers being overall points scored during regular season. Playoff Schedule: Week 13: Round One Teams seeded #5-#12 will complete H2H. Week 14: Round Two The four losing playoff teams play consolation bracket. Lowest regular season win percentage against second lowest, Highest against second highest. Winners move on to play bye teams. Week 15: Round Three Championship winners complete against each other for final matchup and third place matchup Consolation losing teams compete for draft order, winning teams compete for their draft order Week 16: Round Four Losing teams matchup to play for for rookie draft order and 3rd place Winning teams compete in the championship game for their first week point totals Week 17: Round Five Second week scoring for championship game with highest of two week scoring team winning league championship and loser receiving second place. ((in the rare likelyhood of a tie even with a 2 decimal system championship round teams will select 1 player off their roster competing in the NFL playoffs with the highest scoring player being the tie breaker.)) Payouts The league payout structure is as follows: (although subject to change based on league vote) Division Winners: Each division winner will Receive $200 Remaining balance will paid out: 1st: 55% of total 2nd: 25% of total 3rd: 10% of total Total Team Accumulated Points (Weeks 1-16): 10% of total Trade Rules Owners are encouraged to conduct trading throughout the offseason and for the first part of the regular season. Trading between teams would be unavailable from Week 12-17 of the regular season. All trades are expected to be executed in good faith and with the goal of improving one’s roster over the short or long-term. All trades which are mutually approved by both Owners are automatically approved without league or Commissioner consideration. The Commissioner reserves the right to nullify a trade if collusion or gross imbalance is apparent. Trade Protest - Any owner may protest a trade by posting in the league forum. A trade protest must be seconded/supported by another league owner for a league-wide approval vote to occur. A trade protest vote needs a 2/3 majority of all owners to pass. If it does pass, it nullifies the proposed trade. League Owners are allowed one trade protest per year. Seconding/supporting another owner's trade protest counts as a trade protest. If a trade protest vote is successful, the Owner and Seconding/supporting Owner are allowed to challenge another trade in the same calendar year. If a trade protest vote is unsuccessful, both the Owner and Seconding/supporting Owner lose their ability to protest a trade for the remainder of the year. Trading future draft picks: For the League's maiden draft, Owners would be allowed to trade various draft positions to other teams without having to deposit an additional entry fee for the following year. For future drafts, trades may include future draft picks for the next two calendar years. Both teams that agree to trade future year draft picks two seasons in advance must submit an additional deposit towards that season's entry fee within 1 week of the trade being processed. Trading Taxi Squad Players: Owners can use Taxi Squad players for trading and trade bait purposes throughout the year. If an Owner acquires a Taxi Squad player in a trade and has a full Taxi Squad, said Owner must have an available bench spot to accommodate the Taxi Squad player. Trading FAAB: Owners can use their FAAB budgets for trading and trade bait purposes during the NFL regular season, and during the offseason (using a separate FAAB budget for blind bidding outlined in another section). The period for using FAAB for trades during the NFL off-season starts the first weekend of the NFL Rookie Draft, and ends with the beginning of the NFL pre-season. The period for using FAAB for trades for the NFL regular season starts with the beginning of the NFL pre-season, and ends at the end of Week 12 of the regular season. Only the current year's FAAB can be used in trade

Trading between teams would be unavailable from Week 12-17 of the regular season. All trades are expected to be executed in good faith and with the goal of improving one’s roster over the short or long-term. All trades which are mutually approved by both Owners are automatically approved without league or Commissioner consideration. The Commissioner reserves the right to nullify a trade if collusion or gross imbalance is apparent. Trade Protest - Any owner may protest a trade by posting in the league forum. A trade protest must be seconded/supported by another league owner for a league-wide approval vote to occur. A trade protest vote needs a 2/3 majority of all owners to pass. If it does pass, it nullifies the proposed trade. League Owners are allowed one trade protest per year. Seconding/supporting another owner's trade protest counts as a trade protest. If a trade protest vote is successful, the Owner and Seconding/supporting Owner are allowed to challenge another trade in the same calendar year. If a trade protest vote is unsuccessful, both the Owner and Seconding/supporting Owner lose their ability to protest a trade for the remainder of the year. Trading future draft picks: For the League's maiden draft, Owners would be allowed to trade various draft positions to other teams without having to deposit an additional entry fee for the following year. For future drafts, trades may include future draft picks for the next two calendar years. Both teams that agree to trade future year draft picks two seasons in advance must submit an additional deposit towards that season's entry fee within 1 week of the trade being processed. Trading Taxi Squad Players: Owners can use Taxi Squad players for trading and trade bait purposes throughout the year. If an Owner acquires a Taxi Squad player in a trade and has a full Taxi Squad, said Owner must have an available bench spot to accommodate the Taxi Squad player. Trading FAAB: Owners can use their FAAB budgets for trading and trade bait purposes during the NFL regular season, and during the offseason (using a separate FAAB budget for blind bidding outlined in another section). The period for using FAAB for trades during the NFL off-season starts the first weekend of the NFL Rookie Draft, and ends with the beginning of the NFL pre-season. The period for using FAAB for trades for the NFL regular season starts with the beginning of the NFL pre-season, and ends at the end of Week 12 of the regular season. Only the current year's FAAB can be used in trades and trade bait.

For this method of drafting, league owners should choose a draft date far in advance. If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to draft a player (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would allow the hosting site (MFL) to select the highest ADP ranked player as their draft choice. Maiden Draft Rules The league’s maiden draft would allow all owners to reserve a particular draft spot. First, league Owners would be randomly selected to pick their draft position. Owners would declare their draft spot in a forum thread created by the Commissioner. If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to declare their draft spot (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would be randomly selected to fill any remaining draft spots at the end of this process. The league’s maiden draft would utilize a reversed, snake-style format (1-12, 12-1, 1-12, etc.) for all draft rounds. Rookie Draft: Draft order for the league’s annual Rookie draft (held within 3 weeks after the seasons' official NFL draft) would be determined by the Championship tournament from the previous season for the last eight draft slots (1.05 – 1.12), and the Consolation Tournament from the previous season for the first four draft slots. (1.01 – 1.04). The Rookie draft would utilize a non-reversal, snake-style format (1-12, 1-12) for each round. (5 rounds total) The Rookie draft would be an e-mail (offline) draft, with each owner having 12 hours to determine their selection. If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to draft a player (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would allow the hosting site (MFL) to select the highest ADP ranked rookie player as their draft choice. Free Agency Off-season Roster Sizes: During the offseason for existing Dynasty Teams, Owners will be allowed to fill up to 35 roster spots through trades and free agents from the available player pool. Two separate cut events would take place prior to the start of the NFL regular season. The first cut to 28 spots would be after the 3rd week of the NFL pre-season has finished (Sunday night). The final cut to 25 spots (including TAXI) would be after the last week of the NFL pre-season has finished (Sunday night). If Owners do not have their rosters trimmed down by the League's cut-off dates, the Commissioner can move players from the Owner's roster to the free agency pool, starting with the Owners' last drafted player (ex: for 25 player rosters, only the players' first 25 draft picks would be retained) Waiver Wire During the regular season, there are two waiver periods. The first waiver period utilizes a FAAB (Free Agent Acquisition Budget) blind bidding process, and the second waiver period uses a “First Come, First Served” method once the first waiver period has expired. These waiver periods last through Week 17 of the regular season. Waivers would not be allowed after the calendar year ends. Players that are released to the waiver wire would be eligible for pickup during the next FAAB waiver wire period. Free Agent Acquisition Budget Waiver Claims: FAAB blind bidding waivers would start on Tuesday at 2:00 AM ET, allowing each league owner to bid on available free agents. The FAAB would have a set amount set aside for acquiring players during the restricted waiver period. Blind bids would be submitted by each owner for particular players they would like to acquire. The starting budget for each season would be $200 unless adjusted by majority vote prior to the start of the regular season. The order of FAAB waiver priority is determined by highest bid, with tying bids pitting Overall Winning Percentage records for first priority. Waivers continue within this process, with the order of desired players in an Owner's cue being addressed until all waiver claims have been processed. The deadline for FAAB blind bidding on free agents is Wednesday at 11:00 PM CT. First come, first served waivers would begin immediately afterward. First Come, First Served Waivers: After the restricted FAAB period has ended, owners can submit a regular waiver claim for an available free agent after protected waivers clear on Wednesday. Regular waiver claims for free agents during this non-restricted, first come-first serve period are available until kickoff time of the free agents’ particular game. Off-season Waivers: The period for off-season waivers begins after the first weekend following the NFL Rookie Draft through the beginning of the regular season. Off-season waivers would occur during the 1st & 15th of every month, starting in May and continuing through the week before the start of the NFL regular season. Waivers during this period of time would be blind bid in nature, adopting the weekly waiver schedule used during the regular season outlined above. Only non-rostered, non-rookie players would be considered available for this period of time. Off-season waivers would utilize a FAAB system, adopting the regular season budget ($200) for this period. Offseason waiver FAAB budgets do not carry over to the regular season, with any remaining balance zeroed before the regular season starts. First come, first served waivers would not be available during the offseason. All waiver claims would be blind bid in nature. Scoring System The league scoring system would be determined by league owners prior to the start of the regular season. Owners are encouraged to adopt a standardized system of point accrual, with variations based on preferences voted on by majority rule. Tiebreakers Tiebreakers would reference each team's total touchdown count as an alternative method of scoring H2H matchups. If these totals are also tied, total bench points would be a secondary method of scoring. Regular Season Week 1 - 12, H2H matchups Playoffs Week 13-15, Championship & Consolation final matchup Week 16-17 with combined score determining the winners Playoff Rules Playoff brackets wil feature all 12 teams in a Championship bracket ranked by Divison winners by win percentage for first 3 bye games and most total points for the season of the remaining 9 teams for the 4th bye. The following 8 teams will be ranked by overall win percentage seeded 5-12. Four playoff wk1 winning teams move on to play bye teams. Four playoff wk1 losing teams are placed in Consolation bracket to compete for Rookie Draft pick position ranked by two worst overall win percentage teams to matchup against each other and two better overall win percentage to matchup against each other. Winner of consolation bracket awarded rookie pick 1.01, second 1.02, winner of two losing teams awarded 1.03, loser receives 1.04. Championship bracket rookie picks are based off overall in percentage of playoff wk2 losing teams from worst receiving 1.05 to best receiving 1.08 Losing teams of playoff wk3 will complete for rookie picks 1.09 & 1.10 Losing team of championship game received rookie pick 1.11, and winner of the league will receive 1.12 Championship Bracket: The top 3 division winning teams by record are the top seeds and receive first-round byes ranked by win percentage with tie breaker being overall points scored.

If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to declare their draft spot (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would be randomly selected to fill any remaining draft spots at the end of this process. The league’s maiden draft would utilize a reversed, snake-style format (1-12, 12-1, 1-12, etc.) for all draft rounds. Rookie Draft: Draft order for the league’s annual Rookie draft (held within 3 weeks after the seasons' official NFL draft) would be determined by the Championship tournament from the previous season for the last eight draft slots (1.05 – 1.12), and the Consolation Tournament from the previous season for the first four draft slots. (1.01 – 1.04). The Rookie draft would utilize a non-reversal, snake-style format (1-12, 1-12) for each round. (5 rounds total) The Rookie draft would be an e-mail (offline) draft, with each owner having 12 hours to determine their selection. If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to draft a player (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would allow the hosting site (MFL) to select the highest ADP ranked rookie player as their draft choice. Free Agency Off-season Roster Sizes: During the offseason for existing Dynasty Teams, Owners will be allowed to fill up to 35 roster spots through trades and free agents from the available player pool. Two separate cut events would take place prior to the start of the NFL regular season. The first cut to 28 spots would be after the 3rd week of the NFL pre-season has finished (Sunday night). The final cut to 25 spots (including TAXI) would be after the last week of the NFL pre-season has finished (Sunday night). If Owners do not have their rosters trimmed down by the League's cut-off dates, the Commissioner can move players from the Owner's roster to the free agency pool, starting with the Owners' last drafted player (ex: for 25 player rosters, only the players' first 25 draft picks would be retained) Waiver Wire During the regular season, there are two waiver periods. The first waiver period utilizes a FAAB (Free Agent Acquisition Budget) blind bidding process, and the second waiver period uses a “First Come, First Served” method once the first waiver period has expired. These waiver periods last through Week 17 of the regular season. Waivers would not be allowed after the calendar year ends. Players that are released to the waiver wire would be eligible for pickup during the next FAAB waiver wire period. Free Agent Acquisition Budget Waiver Claims: FAAB blind bidding waivers would start on Tuesday at 2:00 AM ET, allowing each league owner to bid on available free agents. The FAAB would have a set amount set aside for acquiring players during the restricted waiver period. Blind bids would be submitted by each owner for particular players they would like to acquire. The starting budget for each season would be $200 unless adjusted by majority vote prior to the start of the regular season. The order of FAAB waiver priority is determined by highest bid, with tying bids pitting Overall Winning Percentage records for first priority. Waivers continue within this process, with the order of desired players in an Owner's cue being addressed until all waiver claims have been processed. The deadline for FAAB blind bidding on free agents is Wednesday at 11:00 PM CT. First come, first served waivers would begin immediately afterward. First Come, First Served Waivers: After the restricted FAAB period has ended, owners can submit a regular waiver claim for an available free agent after protected waivers clear on Wednesday. Regular waiver claims for free agents during this non-restricted, first come-first serve period are available until kickoff time of the free agents’ particular game. Off-season Waivers: The period for off-season waivers begins after the first weekend following the NFL Rookie Draft through the beginning of the regular season. Off-season waivers would occur during the 1st & 15th of every month, starting in May and continuing through the week before the start of the NFL regular season. Waivers during this period of time would be blind bid in nature, adopting the weekly waiver schedule used during the regular season outlined above. Only non-rostered, non-rookie players would be considered available for this period of time. Off-season waivers would utilize a FAAB system, adopting the regular season budget ($200) for this period. Offseason waiver FAAB budgets do not carry over to the regular season, with any remaining balance zeroed before the regular season starts. First come, first served waivers would not be available during the offseason. All waiver claims would be blind bid in nature. Scoring System The league scoring system would be determined by league owners prior to the start of the regular season. Owners are encouraged to adopt a standardized system of point accrual, with variations based on preferences voted on by majority rule. Tiebreakers Tiebreakers would reference each team's total touchdown count as an alternative method of scoring H2H matchups. If these totals are also tied, total bench points would be a secondary method of scoring. Regular Season Week 1 - 12, H2H matchups Playoffs Week 13-15, Championship & Consolation final matchup Week 16-17 with combined score determining the winners Playoff Rules Playoff brackets wil feature all 12 teams in a Championship bracket ranked by Divison winners by win percentage for first 3 bye games and most total points for the season of the remaining 9 teams for the 4th bye. The following 8 teams will be ranked by overall win percentage seeded 5-12. Four playoff wk1 winning teams move on to play bye teams. Four playoff wk1 losing teams are placed in Consolation bracket to compete for Rookie Draft pick position ranked by two worst overall win percentage teams to matchup against each other and two better overall win percentage to matchup against each other. Winner of consolation bracket awarded rookie pick 1.01, second 1.02, winner of two losing teams awarded 1.03, loser receives 1.04. Championship bracket rookie picks are based off overall in percentage of playoff wk2 losing teams from worst receiving 1.05 to best receiving 1.08 Losing teams of playoff wk3 will complete for rookie picks 1.09 & 1.10 Losing team of championship game received rookie pick 1.11, and winner of the league will receive 1.12 Championship Bracket: The top 3 division winning teams by record are the top seeds and receive first-round byes ranked by win percentage with tie breaker being overall points scored. Remaining overall points scored during the regular season will receive final bye The remaining 8 playoff teams will complete in tradition bracket system ranked by win percentage tie breakers being overall points scored during regular season. Playoff Schedule: Week 13: Round One Teams seeded #5-#12 will complete H2H. Week 14: Round Two The four losing playoff teams play consolation bracket. Lowest regular season win percentage against second lowest, Highest against second highest. Winners move on to play bye teams. Week 15: Round Three Championship winners complete against each other for final matchup and third place matchup Consolation losing teams compete for draft order, winning teams compete for their draft order Week 16: Round Four Losing teams matchup to play for for rookie draft order and 3rd place Winning teams compete in the championship game for their first week point totals Week 17: Round Five Second week scoring for championship game with highest of two week scoring team winning league championship and loser receiving second place. ((in the rare likelyhood of a tie even with a 2 decimal system championship round teams will select 1 player off their roster competing in the NFL playoffs with the highest scoring player being the tie breaker.)) Payouts The league payout structure is as follows: (although subject to change based on league vote) Division Winners: Each division winner will Receive $200 Remaining balance will paid out: 1st: 55% of total 2nd: 25% of total 3rd: 10% of total Total Team Accumulated Points (Weeks 1-16): 10% of total Trade Rules Owners are encouraged to conduct trading throughout the offseason and for the first part of the regular season. Trading between teams would be unavailable from Week 12-17 of the regular season. All trades are expected to be executed in good faith and with the goal of improving one’s roster over the short or long-term. All trades which are mutually approved by both Owners are automatically approved without league or Commissioner consideration. The Commissioner reserves the right to nullify a trade if collusion or gross imbalance is apparent. Trade Protest - Any owner may protest a trade by posting in the league forum. A trade protest must be seconded/supported by another league owner for a league-wide approval vote to occur. A trade protest vote needs a 2/3 majority of all owners to pass. If it does pass, it nullifies the proposed trade. League Owners are allowed one trade protest per year. Seconding/supporting another owner's trade protest counts as a trade protest. If a trade protest vote is successful, the Owner and Seconding/supporting Owner are allowed to challenge another trade in the same calendar year. If a trade protest vote is unsuccessful, both the Owner and Seconding/supporting Owner lose their ability to protest a trade for the remainder of the year. Trading future draft picks: For the League's maiden draft, Owners would be allowed to trade various draft positions to other teams without having to deposit an additional entry fee for the following year. For future drafts, trades may include future draft picks for the next two calendar years. Both teams that agree to trade future year draft picks two seasons in advance must submit an additional deposit towards that season's entry fee within 1 week of the trade being processed. Trading Taxi Squad Players: Owners can use Taxi Squad players for trading and trade bait purposes throughout the year. If an Owner acquires a Taxi Squad player in a trade and has a full Taxi Squad, said Owner must have an available bench spot to accommodate the Taxi Squad player. Trading FAAB: Owners can use their FAAB budgets for trading and trade bait purposes during the NFL regular season, and during the offseason (using a separate FAAB budget for blind bidding outlined in another section). The period for using FAAB for trades during the NFL off-season starts the first weekend of the NFL Rookie Draft, and ends with the beginning of the NFL pre-season. The period for using FAAB for trades for the NFL regular season starts with the beginning of the NFL pre-season, and ends at the end of Week 12 of the regular season. Only the current year's FAAB can be used in trades and trade bait. Injured Reserve Spots Owners can utilize one or more Injured Reserve spots during the regular season for active players designated as being on Injured Reserve (RES) by their respective NFL teams. The IR slots are not available during the off-season. IR spots cannot be filled with suspended or practice squad players from different teams. Once a player has his ‘IR’ or ‘PUP’ status removed, an Owner must move the player to an available Bench or roster spot within one week of their status being changed. If the player is still in an IR spot after this week passes, the player would be placed in the available free agency pool by the Owner or Commissioner. Taxi Squad Each owner would be afforded a Taxi Squad, where an owner can stash NFL players in their rookie to 2nd year season without taking up valuable roster spots that could be used for immediate contributors. Taxi Squad players may not play in a game unless they are called up to the active roster. A player may not return to the Taxi Squad once they have been called up to the active roster. Taxi Squad player slots can be modified any time during the offseason (outside of the regular NFL season, including playoffs and Super Bowl). Once the regular season begins, Taxi Squads are locked. Owners are only allowed to promote Taxi Squad players to their active rosters. Once a Taxi Squad player has been called up to the active roster during the regular season, they may not return (be demoted) back to the Owners' Taxi Squad. Players on a rosters’ Taxi Squad can stay for 2 years maximum. A Rookie placed on the Taxi Squad may stay until the end of their 2nd year. A 2nd year player placed on the Taxi Squad may stay until the end of their 3rd year.

  8. I have a NCAA Dynasty League starting up mostly with guys from other dynasty leagues I'm in. We have 9 confirmed at this point and looking to fill a max of 15 spots with a minimum of 12 teams. Basically you draft a player and can keep him as long as they are in college and lose them if they declare for the draft or quit. Standard PPR scoring applies Players will be drafted from major conferences & Independent conf only. Lineups will be 2 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1-2 flex (can vote), 1 TE. No kickers or defenses. Draft would be most likely sometime in early to mid august with the first week starting Sept 3 I believe. Yearly buy in is $100 per year, the first year is $150 with $50 of it going to a deposit for year two. Payouts will be 50%, 30%, 10% for 1st 2nd & 3rd. 5% going to the team with the most points scored for the regular season. 5% to the toilet bowl champion as well as choice of draft spot for the following season. Buy ins and payouts will be handled by Leaguesafe. 100% payouts Have done this before and is different and pretty fun. So if you're a fantasy junkie like the rest of us and are interested message me and let me know.
  9. Maybe you heard about Pool 33 and maybe you haven't. If you have, bear with me and if you haven't here's the scoop. Pool 33 is so easy, its almost scary. Prior to the beginning of the Regular Season a different NFL Team is randomly assigned to you for each Week of the Season , (each Participant will have a Bye Week) and should the NFL Team you have for the Week scores exactly 33 Points you win the amount in the Progressive Jackpot which is increased by $33 each week that there is no winner. Yep, that right. There's no draft, there's no Player Moves and your involvement is almost nil. (Pretty much like The SpitBowl) Once I get all the spots filled we will pay the Entry Fee thru PayPal. Can't use LeagueSafe because they don't allow mid-season payouts. I'll let you know when and and how. Additionally, I will use an online random generator to place each Participant in a row. The NFL Team boxes are all set. There are two things you have to do (prior to the start) Choose a funny, weird or unusual Player's Name (past or present) for your moniker and Pay a $20 Entry Fee So far twenty one (out of 32) NFL Player names have been claimed (FCFS): I.M. Hipp Lucious Pusey Goose Gonsoulin Fair Hooker John David Booty Lofa Tatupu Icky Woods Captain Munnerlyn DeJuan Tribble Dick Butkus Chris Fuamatu-Ma'Afala C.J. Ah You Richie Icognito Tom Fears Sneeze Achiu Kirby Dar Dar Ashton Youboty Hokie Gajan Emery Moorehead Tshimanga Biakabutuka Frostee Rucker If you do a Google Search on "Funny NFL Players Names" there's a bunch more that will crack you up. Once you do the above two items, all you have to do is keep tabs on your NFL Team for the week to see if you are a winner. Like I said - Easy. If you would like a spot respond here
