Last week's communication regarding Javy's use of Hillis at FB and HB has prompted us to update the Position Change rules with some parameters for you guys to follow. We'll tag it as the "Hillis" rule unofficially. With the permission of majesty95, we'll be adopting some of the position change parameters used in Virtual Football League with our own guidelines esablished (thanks, Mike). Please remember that ALL position changes still need to be announced in the Team Management forum. These parameters that we are implementing are bottom line requirements and will not be bent. All position changes remain subject to mgmt approval/disapproval. Thanks for your attention regarding this. Changes are in yellow... R.3 POSITION CHANGES Players may be designated to play at ONE position of your choice; both rookies and veterans alike. You may change a player’s natural position, however, PLEASE DO SO WITH CAUTION. With the release of Madden NFL 13, team schematics and individual player performance may be adversely affected if a player is moved out of his natural position. Each team MUST announce any player position change in the Team Management forum if the player is being moved out of his natural position. The league staff will approve or deny the position change based on the player’s size and skillset. With CCM, legitimate position changes should no longer create an unfair advantage. Therefore, proof is no longer required. However, once you announce a position change, the player must remain at that position on the team's roster throughout the remainder of the franchise. He may be moved back to his natural position if he is traded or released to a different team. Acceptable position changes are as follows: RB > FB; only if above 230 lbs AND speed is 85 or less FB > RB RB > WR; only if the RB's catch rating is 80+ TE > WR; only if the TE 's speed is 85+ OL > OL; all positions on the offensive line are interchangeable DL > DL; all positions on the defensive line are interchangeable DE > OLB; only if moving from a 4-3 to a 3-4 OLB > DE; only if moving from a 3-4 to a 4-3 LB; all linebacker positions are interchangeable CB > S; only if the CB's tackle rating is 65+ S > CB; only if the S's man coverage rating is 75+ NOTE: The online franchise does not allow us the capability to make physical changes to a player's position. Therefore, any position changes will need to be performed via editing your team's depth chart. "HYBRID" PLAYERS ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED – EACH PLAYER MUST PLAY ONE POSITION ONLY. For example, an OLB can play OLB or DE, but he cannot play both. The league staff reserves the right to disallow any position changes that are announced.
