TC will vote and approve/deny the trade If approved, trade to be completed via CFM file 2 Trades MAX will be allowed per season (trades involving the TC) Trade Probation - If you are identified as a new owner you will be on probation for one full season. If on probation you CANNOT trade any player with OVR 80 or above. You CANNOT trade your teams 1st or 2nd round picks. Members may remain on probation for longer than 1 season if league commitment / content isn't sufficient to admins discretion. ROOKIE year contracts. All members will be able to make one trade transaction dealing a rookie contract. The trade counts as both teams one trade. (ie. Chargers trade Melvin Gordon to Saints, both the Saints and Chargers are not allowed to move a rookie contract for remainder of file) Eli Manning Rule - Post draft "rookies" can be traded and not impact the rookie year deals in the grace period of the off season, trades will be seen by the TC What the TC is looking for? Realism - Look at NFL trades YTD. Not many player for player... This isn't fantasy football Timing - Is this player on his rookie contract? Did you just resign this player a year ago? Blockbuster Trades - Is there a player rated 90+ OVR, these won't happen often Fairness Are you new? Owners new in the file will be scrutinized to ensure roster integrity is kept Post Draft Free Agency Waiver Process Post live draft there will be a LIVE free agency period Free agency picking order will be random generated selection ONE round of live picks will ensue, after FA will be locked until advance to the regular season Regular Season Free Agency FA will remain open all season FA IS NOT a force team shaping tool, you should limit your teams transactions In-Season Resigning of Players 85 OVR or GREATER can sign MAX 5 year deal 84 OVR of BELOW can sign MAX 4 year deal All players will receive at minimum 30% Signing Bonus Players signed to a one year deal will receive NO MORE than 24 Million for that year Only players not receiving a bonus are ONE year deals which happen INSEASON Roster Requirements You must have 53 players You must have a K and a P Practice Squad Players Each team can hold up to 10 practice squad players Teams are not allowed to retain more than TWO players of the same position If you take another teams practice squad player the said player must remain on your ACTIVE roster till seasons end Playbooks Custom playbooks are PROHIBITED You must declare your PB at seasons beginning Gameplay Rules Play SIM, do not purposely abuse AI.

Keep it SIM, situation an circumstances should drive this DO NOT SUPERSIM vs CPU Games vs the CPU are to be started only one time Gameplay Complaints Gameplay complaints should have Twitch footage Keep complaints out of general chat until discussed with admins Relocation of NFL Franchise Create a thread with your teams desire to move to a new city List all stadium categories Open a poll within the thread, you must receive 24 YES votes League majority votes decides what city/location the team can choose ______________________________________________________________________________ Please review the rules for the newer additions to the league, I will highlight some changes as well for the vets. Season 1 PLAYBOOKS: For the first season all playbooks will be 'locked' to whatever your teams' default offensive and defensive playbooks are. When your season is over you can switch to ANY team specific DEFENSIVE playbook you want. If you wish to change your OFFENSIVE playbook you are required to fire your coach. There will be a limit of two teams sharing any given playbook at a time, same as last year. Practice Squad: 10 Players per team, you can only have TWO players of the same position so spread the wealth. No sitting on 5 WRs and 5 CBs, be smart with your PC. If you need to move a player up due to injury have the flexability there. If you take a player from another teams PC that player MUST remain on your active roster for the rest of the season. The practice squad was not meant to replace free agency, as you'll still have to make changes to your active 53 to bring a player up. This isn't baseball where players are called up and sent down over the weekend. Player Contracts: Please adhere to the rules in place. There is now a flat 30% signing bonus for all contracts to help simplify the process. Players being bided on in free agency can receive at a MAX of 24 Million for that deal. Players who's contracts are botched will be suspended for 4-10 games depending on severity of violation and number of offenses. We will continue to address items as they come up and make them public knowledge. The EA patch is with Microsoft so we should be launching within a week's time. Stay tuned for final game play settings and daddyleagues information. Its encouraged to create a team twitter page for communication and DL.com interaction.
