* Each team can carry up to 16 players, plus two IR slots. The IR slots are reserved for players put on IR by their

* For each player you keep, you will forfeit your draft pick for the round in which that player was originally


* For players that are being kept the third year, you will forfeit the highest draft pick not already being forfeited.

the new owner may keep him by forfeiting the same round pick. This will remain the same even if the player is traded

during his second year.

* A traded keeper player may only remain with the new team for the remainder of his 3 year eligibility from being

drafted originally.

* The deadline for determining your keepers and notifying the commissioner is August 15th each year.




* Franchises can submit waiver wire requests to the league

web site by Wednesday evening.

* The order you place your waivers will determine whom you pick up first. (For example, Fred Taylor as first, Kevin

Faulk as second, and Ben Gay as third. Your waivers will be selected in that order.)

* If more than one team selects the same player, the team with the worst record will receive the pick.

* The league site will determine the waiver order based on the league tie breaker rules.

* If a team requests more than one player, that team will go to the last waiver position after the first player is

awarded. For each subsequent waiver pick-up that team will be moved to the last waiver position.

* The league site will award players during early morning hours on Thursday of each week.

* For the remainder of the week, starting at 7:00 a.m. on

Thursday mornings, waiver pickups are first come, first served and will be processed immediately by the web site.

* Once the playoffs begin, only teams that are still alive in the playoffs may add or drop players through the waiver

system. This will insure the integrety of the Toilet Bowl competition.



Draft :

* The 2009 draft will be a slow draft with a starting date that is agreed upon by all members.

* The draft order will use the following formula:

1 Toilet Bowl loser

2-6 worst to first from the previous year's

regular season standings.

7-8 based on regular season record of wild card round


9 for 4th place playoff finisher

10 for 3rd place playoff finisher

11 for Super Bowl loser

12 for Super Bowl winner

* Pick order will snake. The odd-numbered rounds will be 1 to 12, then 12 to 1 in the even numbered rounds.

* Draft picks may be traded. The deadline for trading draft picks is prior to the start of the draft.

* There will be 16 rounds.

* The time limit for drafting players is 3 minutes. If you exceed that limit, it becomes the next player's turn,

and his 3-minute limit will start immediately. You may still select your draft pick anytime after, but anyone whose

turn it is may jump in ahead of you.

* Keeper picks will be entered in the appropriate slot on

the draft board before the draft begins.



Absentee Owners:

* Team owners are expected to check into the league board periodically during the off-season, in order to confirm

that they wish to remain in the league, discuss and vote on any rule changes, and any other issues that might occur.

* If you do not confirm your status in the league, e-mails will be sent to your registered e-mail account. If you do

not respond by August 1, you will be dropped by the league and a replacement owner will be invited to join the league.

* Team owners who do not make line-up changes or NFL picks during a week during the season will be contacted by the

commissioner. If a response is not received or a second week goes by without any league activity, the commissioner

will take control of the team and try to find a new owner.

* In the time between seizure and securing a new owner the commissioner along with two other team owners will select

the best possible line-up for the team in question. This will insure that all owners will play the team at it's best.

* If the original owner comes forward to reclaim the team,

the issue will be put to a vote of the league and must be approved by over half of the members.



Other Issues:

* Any issues or conflicts that arise during the season that are not specifically covered in these by-laws will be put

to a vote of the league members. All issues or conflicts must be approved by over half of the league members.

* By-laws changes may be proposed by any league member. These changes will be put to a vote by all members of the

league. All proposals must by approved by more than half of the league members in order to become a part of the

by-laws. Rule changes will only be made during the time after the All-Star Game and the start of the next draft.
