Original League Season 3 Kick-off

With season 2 in the books (Well done Phil) . Its that time again we are edging ever closer to kick-off of the new season and hopes and spirits are high, just a reminder to read over the rules again (and take the new ones below information a count), We sadly said goodbye to good Ol’ JR, hopefully see him back soon, he had a stonking draft so new, improved Ben will have a great team to work with going into the new season. Good Luck everyone for the season ahead.

Christmas time, Mistletoe and Madden.

We will have a very short break for Christmas and Boxing day, but games should be scheduled as normal for remainder of the time, obviously people are busy but please reply to your opponents asap.

It’s all about the Benjamins baby.

Some people like to create content for the league, some people dont, we feel its about time the ones that do got a little reward. So for this season anyone producing QUALITY articles, blogs, videos, content or features for the league will be getting rewarded with some (virtual cash money)

Regular 4 (game)weekly articles/blogs, Match reports, team blogs for example.will get $5,000,000 every 4 weeks.

One off specials such as mock drafts or season reviews etc will get 5m per Article but obviously we would expect these to be long reads.

The maximum you can earn is 20m per season. Don’t worry if your rubbish at spelling or layouts or anything like that we will help with all that stuff.

If you are planning on producing something please message Chris who will confirm if you can go ahead with that (wouldn’t want you producing something we cant use or worse doing the same as someone else)

Chris is also still looking for some people to do a regular blog so message him if you are interested.

Season 3 Rule Changes (Both Leagues).

A few minor adjustments.

What: ALL trades involving 1st round picks need to be approved

Why: Although the adjustments to the trading rules are helping, some people are still getting bummed when it comes to there early draft picks and studs, we will continue to monitor this so may change again after week 8. This is still a work in progress

What: Running inside runs, straight outside the tackles/to the sideline

Why: Its a glitch and you know its a glitch thats why you do it, so we’re stopping it. Yes very occasionally you’ll need do it if the pressure flies up the middle, but if your first few steps with your HB on an inside run (Draws, Traps, Inside zone) aren’t up the field behind your centre and guards then expect to get a knock at the door from the rules police, with regards to punishment, expect bans for single or multiple games. If this is an issue in a game you are playing, let a commish know, don’t broadcast it to the chat.

General Points: 

  • Playbooks must be shown prior to the start of the game. This is to ensure no one is using a custom PB.
  • If you see something, say something, If you see someone breaking the rules or have something to report, let a commissioner know via PM, we will investigate.
  • If you have any feedback relating to rules let us know etc.

And last but not least….

There once was a commish called Moose

Who just became a Daddy again.

Now he has an excuse to be terrible at madden.

This isn’t a poem.

Cheers Cubas,

Your Glorious Leaders
