    Welcome to 1st an 10 Sim Madden league. We are a league of mature adults who all share the common thread of loving to play Madden on line in a realistic manner as close to real life as possible. This is our 1st year in existence but that doesn't mean we lack experience of playing true Sim Madden style ball. This league a core of about 28 guys with tenured sim experience. Some of us have played against each other for 3-5 years.

    In this league, we hold fair sim play(no cheese play) and respect to your opponent in very high regard. This is a league that governs with a fair but forceful adherence to the rules set before the entire league.

    To be a member an account on TSO, twitch and groupme is mandatory. Our main scheduling platform is on TSO but groupme has proven effective as well. When the week advances, you must post in the scheduling section of the forum. When I say post, I don't mean say hi. Give the week and teams name in the title. Also give a time and date that you would be available. You also must tag your opponent. This will give them an alert to your post. Most importantly, try to be as flexible as possible. Below I will give an example of what a game post should look like.

    Title: Week 1 Texans @ Cowboys
    Body: Hey, I'm available 6-11 pm est on Mon, Tues and 3-9 pm est. What does your availability look like? (You can tag your opponent by simply pressing @ and begin typing their TSO id)

    Reply
    I can play at 7 pm est on Tuesday.

    Notice the reply did not say nothing about round about or possibly. Things come up from time to time. Please make a conscious effort to notify your opponent of any changes. Your opponents time is just as valuable as yours please respect that. Posting is the scheduling section is very important, especially because the commishes now have the ability to sim a win to a specific team.

    As far as our 1st and 10 groupme, THE POSTING OF ANY AND ALL GIFS AND IMAGES IS PROHITBITED. 1ST offense, 2 offensive and 2 defensive starters will not be allowed to play for one game, 2nd Offense will cause you to be terminated from 1st and 10. The purpose of this is to keep anyone from being offended or fired (if using groupme at work).

    Advance Schedule
    We are on a 72 hour (3 day) advance schedule. Because of various holidays, this will be adjusted from time to time. This will allow us to get 4-5 seasons in during this release. This is another reason that posting your schedule and playing your games in a timely manner is so important

    Gameplay
    Gameplay is very important. Each player must mix up their offensive and defensive playcalling. Running a core 4 or 5 plays that are the same but in different formations or 5 money plays but rotating them doesn't count for mixing up your play calling. Make as much usage of your playbook as possible. Also, everyone please be familiar with the rules. "I didn't know" is not a good answer.

    Trading
    When trades have been agreed upon they must be approved by 2 of the 3 commishes. They proposed trade must be posted in the Team Management section of the forum. Trade should include players current contract, number of years remaining on current contract, age and cap hit(amount of Signing bonus remaining on contract). Below is an example of what a trade proposal should look like:

    Title: Texans and Cowboys reach deal (doesn't have to say that exactly)

    Texans send

    RE J. Watt 99 ovr, 27 years old, 5 year/ 100 mil/ 20 sign bonus, 4 years remaining, 16 mil cap hit

    Cowboys send

    CB O. Scandrick, 82 ovr 29 years old, 2 yr/ 16 mil/ 6 mil sign bonus, 2 years remaining, 6 mil cap hit
    2016 1st round
    2016 2nd round pick

    Texans agree

    Cowboys will then have to reply that they agree and once there are 2 approval votes the trade can be processed on the CFM

    Everyone please acknowledge below by replying that you have read and understand this message to 1st and 10.

    But am I the only one questioning this statement, "We are on a 36 hour (3 day) advance schedule." .....
