    Hard Knocks: A Madden Franchise for the PS3

    Welcome to the league! We have created this Handbook to help you navigate through Hard Knocks. Here are a few key rules regarding HK, and if you have any questions feel free to ask Bob, ryty32 (CFO), Diddy81, or Cimmy24

    First and foremost, this is a gentlemen’s league. I expect RESPECT among all the owners of Hard Knocks. Be courteous to your fellow league members by keeping things friendly and fun.

    Please be SIM. If you have to necessarily ask what SIM is then maybe this is not the league for you. If a glitch is found, please report that to the league through the forum or a pm directly to the commissioners. There will be league specific game play rules, but also keep in mind that Hard Knocks abides by all TSO site wide rules.

    Be ACTIVE. Activity is a must for any league, and without question we will require game recaps. The idea is that once you begin to do recaps that you will immerse yourself into other aspects of content. We think content is contagious, and would want you to add something that you want to add to the league. With our current members, you will see great ideas from great people.

    COMMUNICATION. Make sure you are staying in contact with your opponents for that week. We believe AIM is the best form of communication for games, but also check the forums and utilize the TSO site for talking with fellow owners. Once you finish your current week’s games, feel free to contact your next week’s opponent. We will post a match up thread each week, make sure to post in there when you will be playing your game. I have found the best form of communication is through text messaging your opponent. If you fail to get the game scheduled 2 hours before the deadline, then your game will be simmed. There will be a hard 48 hour advance for Hard Knocks.

    If you are the last game for more than 3 times, you will be removed from the league. Sometimes things come up, but there is no reason to not be proactive in your approach to scheduling

    Trade Committee:

    We will have a 3 member trade committee led by Myself. This committees will be posted on the forum very soon.

    The Trade board will be allowed to reject any trade by any owner.

    Game play Rules:

    - 4th Down rules

    There are big questions regarding 4th Down attempts. To me it should be realistic in regards to the NFL. Meaning..very rarely going for it.

    NO Going for 4th down in the first half of the game.

    The only time you should be going for it on 4th down in the third quarter is if it's 2 yards or less and you are trailing.

    You may go for any 4th down in the 4th quarter if you are trailing.

    You can go for it if you are leading by 13 points or less and you are past the 50 yard line with 2 yards or less to go.

    - No Manually moving multiple defenders
    - No Multiple Motions per play
    - Abuse of Hot Routes, and Audibles (Offense and Defense)
    - Rolling out excessively with QB, running backwards with QB, dropping back excessively.
    - Running money plays, a money play is a play that works no matter the situation or the defense. I believe we all know what these are. If you have a question please ask!
    - Please mix up your play calling, (this means calling the same play over and over)
    - No unrealistic Fake FGS or Fake Punts (please see 4th Down rules)
    - No LOOPING DE or WR. This will be mainly a WR issue. Looping is when the WR is manually controlled and moved suddenly in a circular motion to confuse the defense.

    Disconnects:

    In last years Madden disconnects were an issue. Be real about game situations with disconnects. Any questions contact me, or Ry through text, pm or AIM.

    Team Management:

    Future space

    Trades:
    - There will be 1 off season trade allowed and 1 in season trade allowed. The 1 in season trade has to be completed and approved before Week 8.
    -Trading draft picks is allowed, including future picks.
    - One owner must make a thread regarding the teams involved in the trade.
    This is the way you would start the thread.
    “Cowboys and Texans reach agreement”
    - Once you post there is no going back on the proposed trade as it will be submitted to league office.
    - Draft Day trades (meaning trades during the draft and trades only involving picks) will not be counted towards your trade limit.

    Keep your trades realistic. Remember the NFL is not the NBA or MLB.

    Waiver Wire description:
    (FUTURE)


    As a league we hope you enjoy your Hard Knocks experience. As always feel free to contact me in any way necessary.

    HK WAIVER WIRE/IN SEASON FREE AGENCY

    Rules - When a player listed as a free agent and has an overall ranking > 70, we will use a waiver wire system to earn the right to negotiate with the player. The waiver wire order will be determined by the past draft position of the current user teams. Here is the order this season –

    1. IndianapolisColts (2-14)
    2. St. Louis Rams (2-14)
    3. Minnesota Vikings (3-13)
    4. Cleveland Browns (4-12)
    5. Tampa Bay Bucs (4-12)
    6. Washington Redskins (5-11)
    7. Jacksonville Jaguars (5-11)
    8. Miami Dolphins (6-10)
    9. Carolina Panthers (6-10)
    10. Buffalo Bills (6-10)
    11. Kansas City Chiefs (7-9)
    12. Seattle Seahawks (7-9)
    13. Arizona Cardinals (8-8)
    14. Dallas Cowboys (8-8)
    15. Philadelphia Eagles (8-8)
    16.New York Jets (8-8)
    17. OaklandRaiders (8-8)
    18. San Diego Chargers (8-8)
    19. Chicago Bears (8-8)
    20. Tennessee Titans (9-7)
    21. Cincinnati Bengals (9-7)
    22. Atlanta Falcons (10-6)
    23. Detroit Lions (10-6)
    24. Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4)
    25. Denver Broncos (8-8)
    26. Houston Texans (10-6)
    27. New Orleans Saints (13-3)
    28. Green BayPackers (15-1)
    29. Baltimore Ravens (12-4)
    30. San Francisco 49ers (13-3)
    31.New England Patriots (13-3)
    32. New YorkGiants (9-7)*

    When a team makes a waiver wire claim, 24 hours must past before you can officially offer the free agent. If another user with a lower position (i.e. you are #6 and #4 bids) places a claim within that 24 hour period, the user with the lower position wins the right to make an offer. Once a player is claimed, the user that makes the claim immediately goes to the bottom of the list.

    If you want to make a claim, please do that in this thread. The claim should look like this -

    "Cleveland Browns place claim on QB Cam Newton. Current Waiver position 4”

    After the season is complete, we will reset the waiver wire to reflect the next season’s draft position.

    Also, please make sure to list any players that you claim under 70 overall in the thread. It is possible that you may have a player rated higher than 70 overall that fits your scheme that isn't on my list.

    Please let me know if you have any questions!

    You can do multiple. You just move down to 32 for your next claim. We will go by the order of your claim submission.

    Can someone explain something to me? So I am clear, when we see the ratings of the players on our roster, or in free agency, is that the rating specifically for our team scheme?

    So if a player is not on the list and is over 70, it needs to be reported.

    I think I got it.
