Teams

A drawing will be held prior to the start of the season to determine team draft order. The draft order will be posted prior to the draft and updated as teams are selected. Each player must submit at least three choices prior to the designated draft date. Once the draft order is published, it is recommended that you select the same number of teams as your draft order to assure your selection. If your preferred team is not available at your turn, you will get the next highest available team as follows:

bullet

Rams, Eagles, Steelers, Forty-Niners, Packers, Seahawks, Raiders, Jets, Patriots, Buccaneers, Broncos, Titans, Dolphins, Bears, Saints, Browns, Redskins, Chargers, Colts, Bills, Cowboys, Chiefs, Jaguars, Vikings, Giants, Cardinals, Ravens, Bengals, Lions, Falcons, Panthers, Texans

Posting Results

Games are to be played within the time period allowed. At the completion of each game, the winner must post the results (team name and score) to the message board prior to the deadline (be sure to verify that your results have posted). If no results are submitted, the game is declared a 0-0 tie. (You may also e-mail the results to webdbd@aol.com as back-up).

Extensions

If it appears that you can't make the deadline, you can request a 24 hour extension to get the game played. Extensions MUST be requested by e-mail (not in the message board) and only one 24 hour extension will be granted.

Forfeits

If you make a valid attempt to contact your opponent and get no response, you will be awarded a forfeit win and your opponent will get the forfeit loss (keep your e-mails). Two consecutive forfeit losses or three forfeit losses in a season may lead to forfeiture of your team. To resend a forfeit, you must e-mail your request to play the game to the commissioner and receive approval. DO NOT PLAY a forfeited game if you have not received approval or you may not get credit for it.

No Huddle Rule

The No Huddle option can be used in either of these two situations:

bullet

You are losing by at least one point

bullet

After the two minute warning of either half

On-Side Kicks

On-side kicks can only be executed if you are losing by at least one point.

Changing Positions

Players can not be moved to other positions...you may substitute like positions only (i.e., QB for QB, TE for TE, etc).

Miscellaneous Rules

Any rules violations must be reported to the commissioner immediately. Failure to abide by any of the listed rules will be considered cheating.

All times posted are PST.

No trading teams at any time. 

At the conclusion of the season, the top teams (based on the number of teams playing) will continue to the playoffs and finally to the Super Bowl.
