    July is here and we are less than two months away from the M16 release. As communicated previously, we are changing to a new 16 / 16 format for M16 which may be reviewed in detail HERE (thanks, Jim!). I'll refrain from redundancy, but in summary, appointed owners will be playing 6-8 regular season games per season against human opponents and all other games against CPU opponents will be simulated.

    We want to thank EVERYONE for such a positive response to the new format. As difficult as it is for us to turn away quality owners; some of which we have known and become friends with for years, it is necessary to do so with the change in league format and only 16 spots to fill. Of note, part of our delay in announcing the owner roster was evaluating and re-evaluating all league and owner options. The selection process was not easy by any means as several variables and alternate formats were considered. After careful deliberation, we came to the conclusion that the 16 / 16 format is the most efficacious in what we are seeking to achieve moving forward.

    We understand that some individuals will be disappointed that they haven't been selected and need to make alternate league plans moving forward. We are announcing our owner selection NOW to allow for the transition process and to reaffirm the decision to continue with the new format for those 16 owners that are selected. Without further adieu, below is the owner roster that we have selected for M16 in alphabetical order:

    A.J. (Xandozer)
    Avery (AveryB)
    Carl (Casino)
    Chris M (MoonBBad)
    Chris S (CSteud)
    CT (CTfromDC)
    Curtis (thafuture3886)
    Doug (CHUNKNESS)
    Jim (LtJustice)
    Jon (Warhawk AKA dreadman)
    Lawon (MrWitness36)
    Michael (Michael Overman)
    Nasir (Nasir)
    Quentin (Triple111's)
    Reis (Mugga)
    Troy (redlishus)​

    For those 16 owners appointed, we ask that you please confirm that you understand the following:
    • 16 Human Owners / 16 CPU Owners
    • 2 Human Owners per Division (and 2 CPU Teams)
    • ALL Human vs. CPU regular season games are SIMMED resulting in 6-8 played games per season.
    • Postseason Human vs. CPU games may be played or simmed
    • 3 advances per week (Tuesday, Thursday, & Sunday nights) - unplayed Human vs Human games are simmed
    • Extensions only granted if both owners attempted and participated in scheduling BEFORE the current week opened. (Or extreme circumstances)
    • In the event one owner was a non-participant in scheduling, the win will be assigned to the participating team’s owner
    • Failing to participate in scheduling via the forum will be cause for removal.
    • ONE (1) recap/summary required per owner per calendar week (more is allowed but not required)
    • NO simmed seasons (because we have so many simmed games - becomes a hybrid with sims and played in same season)
    • Trade rules will be determined/finalized upon game release and will depend on CPU trade logic
    • Team selection process TBA

    I want to thank everyone who showed interest in joining Quality Simulation Football for M16. For those who were not appointed, we hope you find another suitable league and perhaps we will have an opportunity to bring you aboard in the future if you are still interested. Our intent was not to slight anyone, but simply to pick the 16 owners that we felt best fit what we are trying to accomplish in The QSF at this time.

    Feel free to reply to this post with any questions or constructive comments. Feel free to contact me or Jim privately to discuss things, if you'd prefer that route (we just ask that you include BOTH of us in any PMs here or on GroupMe regarding this).

    Thank you!

    Thanks Doug!

    As Doug stated, this was not an easy decision, as we know we are turning away some long time members and friends. With that being said, I am very excited for the group we have and think this new format can be a lot of fun!

    Cool wit me...my only question is who will take over the Browns, Bengals or Ravens? Although I don't know why anyone would want to take over such horrible franchises I understand it is a must that someone take on the task of manning those losers :ROFLMAO:

    Gentleman,

    Allow me to address the elephant in the room...

    Yes my son A.J. was granted a spot in The Q for M16. Is he the only newer owner kept on board? Not at all, but he gets scrutiny for being my son. Ultimately he proved to be capable of being a quality owner last release and if i am being totally honest is one of the driving forces behind even continuing with the league this release. I enjoyed having him in the league and he did nothing to disqualify himself from consideration as an owner.

    At the end of the day the ownership decisions weren't made based on tenure. We based our decisions on who we felt gave us the best collection of owners to have the kind of league we envision with this new format.

    I hope this addresses the issue of "tenure" and how we came about including A.J. in The Q for M16.

    If anyone else would like to discuss this further. please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly.

    No hard feelings at all on my end fellas. If I'm being honest with myself the new format isn't one that was overly appealing to me from the get go. And I'm sure you guys knew that as well. Loved my time in the Q and hopefully down the road we'll link up on the gridiron. Preciatte yall having me the last few cycles, they were a blast. Good luck this release, hope the new format works out for you guys!!

    It's a shame to see such a great league become a shell of what it once was. I have to admit a part of me hopes this format doesn't work out and you guys go back to a 32 owner league...:p
    Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to join. I hope to be a part of the league again in the near future.
    Enjoy the rest of your summer!!!
