Gameplay Rules – Offensive Play calling
We do not place any limits on the types of plays being called and do not force any specific run/pass percentage. The success or failure of your playcalling will be based on how well you execute.
4th Down Rule – The offense is allowed to go for it on 4th down at ANY TIME.
No WR at TE and No Linemen at TE on depth chart, position for position and package subs are fine though
No LBs at DT position.
Gameplay Rules –Defensive Playcalling
We do not place any limits on the types of plays being called and do not force any specific type of defense to be run. Although any thing deemed as an exploit can be ruled on or over turned by league officials.
The offensive is able to call a wide variety of plays and you are empowered to scheme against it.
All of the global defensive controls (DL shift, LB shift, show blitz, etc) are allowed pre-snap.
Linebackers, Cornerbacks and Safeties can be moved pre-snap.
Gameplay Rules – Defensive Depth Chart
Due to the varied types of defensive formations, and the rise of more hybrid players such as a JJ Watt, who can legitimately play three positions in real life, we will not restrict the defensive depth chart in any way. Any defensive substitution that the game allows is acceptable.
Our league communicates almost exclusively through facebook if you have any trouble contacting opponent notify League official .Please be respectful and get in contact with your opponents as quickly as possible. We want this process to be swift and positive for all of the Owners. Both Parties are responsible for scheduling with in the first 24 hours. Failure to do so will result in Fair sim.
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, any more after that we will replace you and fill your team with the next available person.
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.
Although Streaming is Encouraged the only teams responsible for streaming are the 2 games of the week.
If a disconnection occurs in the first half the game will be restarted and the score placed back to where it was at the time of disconnection.
If a disconnection occurs in the second half the game will be restarted and the remaining time will be played out.
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.
Owners are encouraged to have the best available internet connection. Individuals with consistently poor connections may be removed from the league.
We will be as understanding about connection issues as possible. It is understood that some guys live in very rural areas and sometimes have issues. We just don’t want to see a consistent issue lasting multiple weeks.
