Communication Rules

Our league communicates exclusively through Face book .Both Parties are responsible for scheduling with in the first 24 hours of each advance.

Owners who miss a scheduled start time may receive a force loss at the discretion of the Commissioners. We understand that life events do happen and will do our best to mediate when issues arise.

Games that have not started within 60 minutes of advance will be simulated.

The limit for sims in a season is 3. Once you reach  3 sims you will be immediately replaced. Our Goal is to assure out members they will get the most competitive franchise experience so free wins will not be tolerated.

Note: If both parties agree to simulate the game due to scheduling or other conflicts, the game will not be applied towards a player’s sim count. Missing games to participate in live events is also excusable, we encourage our league members to represent our league and themselves in all facet’s of competitive Madden game play.

Disconnection Rules 

If a game disconnects by natural causes Commissioners are to be notified, and game is to be re played from where it left off. Scenario is to be agreed upon with commissioner’s involvement.

Any disputes will be decided by the Commissioners. In the event of a dispute, please contact a Commissioner as soon as possible

Guys who disconnect games in the hope of getting them re-played are BUMS and are not allowed in our league. Purposely quitting games will result in immediate removal.
