    Several of you have players at backup FB that do not meet the eligibility requirements set out in the rules. Please make corrections by next game week.

    Actually you are not.

    Your backup FB is a 6'6" TE.

    Per the rules - FB – Player must be under 6’3”, weigh at least 220lbs and have a speed of 86 or lower.

    The following teams also are playing TE's at backup FB who don't fit the requirements:

    Iowa - sreese
    Nebraska - bucsfan047
    Ohio St - MaxATX34
    Stanford - Cheez

    No worries - I'm assuming it's an oversight. Someone asked me the rules around FB's since several teams were playing TE's or OL that didn't meet the requirements at their backup FB position, which caused me to notice this.

    Oh I didn't even look at my depth there. I have 2 FBs just figured they'd be 1 and 2. My bad.

    Not a problem - like I said, I believe it's an oversight and not intentional.

    real talk though, is this really a post about back up fullbacks? in four years i've had 1,2,1, and 2 fullbacks interested in my school and have been lucky to get one this last year. really in the scheme of things, back up tight end is the least important position on the team. lol at serious topics talking about back up tight ends.

    This was not about backup TEs, I swear do they really not teach you guys to read in Wisconsin?

    Where this becomes an issue is when guys use formations like the power I and using OL or TEs at the FB position is an unfair advantage.

    Shit, if you guys don't want to follow any rules (since no one reads them anyway), we can just go 'free for all' for all I care at this point.

    Why are you highlighting that?
    and based on this, no you can't read.

    I only posted this because Danthraxxx had an issue with bucsfan047 having an OT at backup FB and using him in power I sets. I don't enjoy this game enough to put up with having to deal with guys who feel the need to argue about why something is or isn't allowed. From here on out you can do what you want with your depth charts and fight it out amongst yourselves. Silly me thought this entire group was mature enough to read and follow the rules that everyone agreed to up front. Guess I was off on that.
