    Just an FYI everyone - there is a trade approval process in this league. See information below, and note the new trade committee...


    Trading is not a huge part of building your roster in the NFL and it will not be the main component of building your roster here in The Longest Yard. Trades will also be up for review from a trade committee consisting of elected, trusted peers.

    Trade Committee

    T.1.0 - Trade Committee Process:
    • Team owners come to an agreement in private
    • One owner creates a conversation (PM) with the other owner, also inviting all members of the trade committee
    • Other owner acknowledges the trade, completing the validation
    • Trade committee votes on the trade.
    T.2.0 - Trade Format (PM format when owner submits proposal to Trade Committee)
    • Original Contract Length - purpose of calculating cap penalty
    • Remaining years left
    • Original Bonus $
    • Players current salary that are involved in trade
    • Cap space less rookie reserve (applicable in off-season)
    • Cap penalty loss or cap savings
    • Estimated Cap space remaining after trade
    T.2.0 - Requirements for Trade Committee Approval:
    • 3/5 vote if no trade committee members are involved in the trade
    • 3/4 vote if one member of the trade committee is involved
    • 2/3 vote if two members of the trade committee is involved

    • Teams are limited to ONE in-season trade ATTEMPT each season.
    • Teams are limited to THREE off-season trade ATTEMPTS each season.
    • Teams are limited to ONE revision per trade ATTEMPT.
