    Any position changes MUST be done ONLY in the preseason and must fall under the above guidelines. Furthermore you must follow the instructions below when making a position change.

    1) Post in your Team Front Office thread the position change you are requesting. You MUST INCLUDE the players new OVR rating at the position and their salary cap and cap hit ratings after the adjustments. Note that a players salary will NEVER go down. In other words if he is 88ovr as a LB, but 79 ovr as a DE. . .you will still have to pay him based on an 88ovr rating even if you use him exclusively as a DE.

    2) Wait for a board member to review and approve the position change with a post in your front office thread.

    3) Only after this has occurred you then make the necessary adjustments to your cap book and post them in your front office thread.

    4) The position change is then valid for the upcoming year ONLY! You will need to re-do all position changes after each offseason to account for progression/regressions. Some position changes that were valid one year may not be valid the next.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    During emergencies due to injury, you may request a position change in season. However, you must post:

    1) The injured player and position
    2) Why the planned position change is needed due to the injury.
    3) All the steps outlined above. . .

    A board member will review and post whether the emergency position change is allowed.

    OK Folks, the above guidelines are FINAL for all depth chart position changes. We did this to eliminate any potential arguments that may occur should we just decide on a case by case basis. The above position change restritctions are firm. . .so DONT EVEN ASK if you can have a position change that doesn't fall into the above categories.

    Formation subs in game will be allowed. However, please be advised we are allowing them only because we think (hope!) that nobody abuses the formation subs. If we find abuses happening (HB at WR too often, or LBs at DE the whole game) we will end up just banning formation subs as well. So please do not abuse this power.

    Finally the HB to FB formation sub is STILL BANNED PERMANENTLY.
