ABOUT THE LEAGUE A "master" roster file will be kept on the commissioner’s PS3. This roster file will be updated weekly during the season with trades etc... and after each progression event in the off season. Owners will then be able to download this roster through SportsConnect to view their ACTUAL player ratings and rosters. We are looking for mature owners that understand how to follow directions. Trades will be allowed as described below. Owners will be required to play a minimum of 2 games a week and all games must be scheduled in the designated forum topic to ensure everyone is active and getting games in. I’m considering a system to allow owners to designate “progression” points after the season to try to advance players between seasons. However, some of you want a simple league, so I will hold off until I hear more opinions on the matter.

Trades may be completed as soon as each member of the trading parties post the deal in the forum. Once that is done, a commish will issue their approval. Once approval is issued, teams may submit the trade in the online game. At this point, the trade is subject to owner review. If enough owners vote it down, it can be denied.
