    IMPORTANT! TMFL Decision Made - Please Read & Reply

    OK guys, the leadership of the league and site came together and made the decision to finish up season 1 of the TMFL. What lies ahead for the league after that is still up in the air, although a merger following the season seems to be the way to go. However, many of us have put a lot of time and effort into this season, and it would be a shame to see that go to waste - especially considering the TMFL is designated as a "premier" league.

    Starting with this week, we will be on a strict 4-day advance schedule through the remainder of the regular season. Here is what we are looking at:

    Advance Schedule for Remainder of Season
    Current Week (13) - Friday, 10/15
    Week 14 - Tuesday, 10/19
    Week 15 - Saturday, 10/23
    Week 16 - Wednesday, 10/27
    Week 17 - Sunday, 10/31

    For the playoffs, we'll go with a three-day advance:

    Playoffs
    Wild Card Round - Wednesday, 11/3
    Divisional Round - Saturday, 11/6
    Conf. Championships - Tuesday, 11/9
    TMFL Bowl - Friday, 11/12

    _________________________

    A couple notes:

    ** - Advance times will be 10:00 pm pacific time on the days listed above - no exceptions. We have a mandate from the TF admins to complete the league by early-mid November.

    ** - Posting on the forums is a TF requirement. You all signed up for this when you registered on the site. From now through week 17, you will be expected to schedule your games in the game scheduling forum. If you are not using the forums in some capacity (game scheduling, recaps,etc), you will be removed from the league.

    ** - If you have not heard from your opponent on the forums 48 hours following the advance, please let me know via PM. Rather than forcing a sim game, we will boot your opponent to allow you to play the CPU. It is YOUR responsibility to let the league commissioners know - we are not babysitting here. If you don't notify us, chances are your game will get simmed.

    _________________________

    Once the season is over, we will evaluate the true number of active owners we have and make a decision on how to proceed. Let's all make a commitment to the league and the site to finish this season off strong.

    ALL TMFL OWNERS, PLEASE REPLY LETTING US KNOW YOU READ THIS MESSAGE.

    Thanks,
    TMFL Leadership (HotRod, RanDiesel, Seachicken, BadaBing)

    How does everyone feel, since we are setting up a new file to start the league, that we start the league with a draft?

    Both the SMFL and the TMFL will be completing season 1 so it only makes sense when the new league kicks off that we start in season 2. The issue is going to be draft position, which unfortunately I cannot control, but it does mean that both leagues will sort of be picking up where they left off.

    We start with the draft, do a free agency period then off we go. Since both leagues have about a month to finish up the first season, I can spend that month advancing a new file along to the draft. Then right before the draft just invite everyone to the new league. I feel like it will excite a lot of owners and generate additional interest as opposed to starting from scratch.

    What do you guys think?

    Sorry for not checking in. I just assumed with all the conversations leading up to today my stance was noted.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Season-1 = In for completion
    Season-2 = Retiring as coach and leaving the TMFL

    Updated the list (see below) - here's what we have as of 10:30 PM pacific time Friday night:

    - 16 committed players
    - 8 CPU teams
    - 8 yet to declare their intentions

    I will post the list of CPU teams in the thread where I announce the advancement of the franchise. If you play a team listed in the CPU category, feel free to get that game in ASAP.

    As for the 8 yet to declare, I'm giving you until the end of the weekend. At that point, I'll assume you aren't interested and boot you. The requirements of the league are to check the forums and if you aren't doing that, you won't be eligible to finish out this season or get into the merged league.
