    ATTN: New Rules Effective Immediately - Read & Sign

    The Rules Committee has decided to implement the following two rules effective immediately. We have discussed both extensively, so if you take issue with a rule please feel free to AIM or PM Nate, Jeremy, or myself and we would be more than happy to talk to you about any of them (or anything else for that matter!).

    1) We are BANNING the 1-5-5 formation. After numerous complaints over three seasons we just felt that most guys were using the 1-5-5 in very unrealistic ways. Instead of continuing to bang out head against the wall we have decided to completely ban the 1-5-5 formation. Please note that this is effectively immediately. Do not use the 1-5-5 formation in any more of your season or Cup games!

    2) For the remainder of Madden 10 we are BANNING the RB to FB formation sub (or RB's manually playing at the FB position in any manner). This isn't in response to any one team or owner. . .this is something where we have had numerous complaints about multiple teams using this in a way we feel is unsim. For the betterment of our league we have decided to ban this effective immediately. Unless he is a FB, don't use him in the FB spot! Easy enough.


    Both of these rules we anticipate revisiting potentially for Madden 11. Again we just feel this is for the best for the OMFL this year right now.

    Also, a reminder guys that you need to start getting those Cup games in! You have two full weeks to get 3 or 5 games in depending on your pool.....don't put it off until the last minute. Remember the board has decided that this tournament is mandatory so this is just like any other week or season. . .simply not scheduling them or not trying to get them in won't cut it!

    We've got a GREAT structure and a World Cup feel to this tournament. It really is gonig to be a blast. I have created a standings thread that I will update every night and morning. Just make sure to post your recaps like the format in the Cup Info thread.

    Get those games goin, and remember a BIG trophy to the winner!

    I use the 1-5-5 in the right way so this makes me extremely sad. We need to start booting these guys seriously.

    Quick Question

    The whole RB/FB is just for base formations correct. Just wanna make sure because a lot of NFL teams will use 2 RBs in Shotgun formation.
