DRAFT
The offensive veteran draft will be a slow draft, here at the cafe, held ? (ASAP). This will be a 14 round serpentine-style draft in which order will be determined randomly. Trading of picks and players is allowed. If an owner ends up with more than 14 picks, he loses all draft picks he still has after his 14th roster spot is filled. If an owner ends up with less than 14 picks, he will fill his roster from the WW after the draft is over. If more than one owner ends up with less than 14 picks, the WW order will be the same as the draft order for each WW round.

The rookie draft will be a slow draft, here at the cafe, held shortly after the NFL draft (no exact date yet). This will be a 4 round serpentine-style draft. The draft order will be the reverse order of the offensive veteran draft order. All rookies and available free agents will be available in our rookie drafts.

The IDP draft will be a slow draft, here at the cafe, held (to be determined). This will be an 8 round serpentine-style draft in which order will be determined randomly.

The same trade rules mentioned about the offensive veteran draft will apply to the rookie & IDP drafts.

12 Hour time limit for picks.

The 12 hour period between Midnight & 8AM (EST) doesn't count towards the 12 hour time limit.

For any pick where the end deadline is between 12:01 am Saturday to 11:59 pm Sunday, that pick recieves an extra 12 hours.

FUTURE ROOKIE DRAFTS
Every year we will have a 4 round rookie/undrafted FA draft during the offseason at a time to be determined later. The draft order will be the opposite of the final standings and ties will be broken by total points scored (yahoo! default). These drafts will be NFL style, not serpentine. We will expand our rosters by 4 players for this draft and then we'll all have to cut 4 players before the season starts to get back down to 25. The cut date will be right before the season starts and the exact cut date will be determined later.


ROSTER LIMITS
How about we let the roster size go to whatever as far as draft picks go. After the draft we'll open up free agency. But to add a free agent you MUST drop someone (we're going to have to be dropping guys anyway at some point). This way the roster size never goes higher than your roster + your draft picks.


WAIVERS
We will have a waiver priority system. The initial priority order will be the reverse of the offensive veteran draft order. When a player is dropped from a team he gets put on waivers for 24 hours. If more than 1 owner puts in a claim for a player on waivers, the owner with the highest waiver priority gets that player and then moves to the back of the waiver priority order. If noone put's in a claim for a dropped player, the player becomes a free agent at the end of the 24 hours and can be picked up on a 1st come 1st serve basis.

Waiver priority is cumulative over the entire season, so if you were #1 last week and you didn't use your waiver priority, then you're #1 this week (i.e. it doesn't reset).

Once the 1st game of a given week starts (early Saturday or Sunday games) all free agents get put on waivers until Tuesday at Midnight (EST), which is about 24 hours after the Monday Night game. Noone will be allowed to pick up or drop any players during this time. Let's call this time period the "Weekend Waiver Period".

The exception is when there is a Thursday game. Only the players playing on Thursday will get locked early. The rest of the players will get locked when the 1st Saturday or Sunday game starts in that week.

During the Weekend Waiver Period, all owners that want to put in a claim for any player will PM me their request. If I want to put in a claim for any player I will PM olympia0731 my request. All requests will have "Weekend Waiver Request" as the title of the PM. Olympia0731 & I will not be allowed to read these requests until after the Weekend Waiver Period is over (Tuesday, Midnight (EST)). Everyone that puts in a Weekend Waiver Request will know that olympia0731 & I didn't read the request early because the PM will still be in everyones outbox. This ensures that all requests will remain private.

Once the Weekend Waiver Period is over, the owner who had the highest priority gets the requested player. This owner can now go to yahoo to officially add the player to his team and drop a player (to keep a legal roster).

If you want to make a request for more than 1 player, put the players in priority order in the PM, based on your preference of which one is highest on your priority list. If one owner puts in multiple requests over the Weekend Waiver Period, the 1st player listed/requested will be the 1st player considered as far as waiver priority goes. Once you use your first claim, that moves you to the back of the line for your #2 waiver claim.

Once the Weekend Waiver Period ends (12:01 EST Wednesday Morning), all unpicked players become free agents and can be picked up on a 1st come 1st serve basis until the next Weekend Waiver Period begins.


TRADES
Both commishes (flotsamnjetsam & dream_017) will decide pass/veto on all trades not involving them.

If one commish is involved in a trade, the other commish & one of the backup commishes (mattb47 & The Balanced Man) will decide pass/veto on the trade.

If both commishes are involved in a trade, the 2 backup commishes will decide pass/veto on the trade.

In Season Trade Deadline: Yahoo! Default


PLAYOFFS
We will have 1 large division. The top 6 teams will make the playoffs. The playoffs will take place in weeks 14 - 16. The top 2 teams will get byes in week 14.

The draft order will be the opposite of the final standings and ties will be broken by total points scored. These drafts will be NFL style, not serpentine. We will expand our rosters by 6 players for this draft and then we'll all have to cut 6 players before the season starts to get back down to 35. The cut date will be right before the season starts and the exact cut date will be determined later.

Starting in 2011, our waiver wire will open up 1 week after the rookie/undrafted FA draft ends, so the cut date will be the day that our waiver wire opens. Each owner must be down to 40 before they can pick up a player on the waiver wire. **UPDATED 2010** **UPDATED 2012**

ROSTER LIMITS

Our original PM waiver system will no longer be necessary since fleaflicker supports the waiver system we need. :-) **UPDATED**

Starting in 2011, our waiver wire will open up 1 week after our rookie/undrafted FA draft ends. **UPDATED 2010**

TRADES
Both commishes (flotsamnjetsam & dream_017) will decide pass/veto on all trades not involving them.

If one commish is involved in a trade, the other commish & one of the backup commishes (Kilroy & bungle613) will decide pass/veto on the trade. **UPDATED**

If both commishes are involved in a trade, the 2 backup commishes will decide pass/veto on the trade.

In Season Trade Deadline: Fleaflicker Default **UPDATED**

PLAYOFFS
We will have 1 large division. Starting in 2007, we will have three 4 team divisions, based on original veteran draft positions (1,4,7,10), (2,5,8,11) and (3,6,9,12). **UPDATED 2007**

The top 6 teams will make the playoffs. The playoffs will take place in weeks 14 - 16. The top 2 teams will get byes in week 14.

TIEBREAKERS
We will use the Fleaflicker Default Tiebreaker System **UPDATED**

Starting in 2012, we moved "total points" (it says "avg pts per game" on flea) to the #1 playoff tiebreaker.**UPDATED 2012**

POLLS **UPDATED 2010**
We will need a vote of 75% (9) to pass all general polls/votes.
We will need a vote of 100% (12) for any Inseason changes & for any scoring changes to be implemented within 1 year.

This is just a rough draft of the league rules and settings.

The starting lineup and offensive scoring won't change. Both of these were given in the invitation to join the league. NONE OF THE REST IS SET IN STONE!


Please discuss any changes with anything else that I've listed. We want to start the offensive veteran draft ASAP so I figured it would be faster to post a full list of the league rules & settings and then make any changes, instead of voting on every little thing.

If everyone doesn't think that this was a good idea, just let me know and we'll start from scratch. Otherwise let's just discuss any changes that need to be made or things that need to be added.

Thanks!!

Here's a summary of the things in the rough draft:

1. Host site: Yahoo!: Is everyone OK with yahoo to host our league? Will yahoo let us do everything we'd like to do? The waiver system that we came up with in the CA league was to go around the default yahoo system of 1st come 1st serve ALL the time.

2. Bench Spots: With 13 starting spots, is everyone OK with 13 bench spots?

3. Kicker & IDP scoring: Everyone OK with these scoring systems?

4. Fractional Points: Is everyone OK with using fractional points in our scoring?

5. Draft: Exact draft dates will be determined. Is everyone OK with the # of rounds in each draft? Is everyone OK with the trade rules during the draft or should we go with only 1 for 1, 2 for 2 trades during the draft making it so that everyone has to have the exact number of draft picks in each draft? Is everyone OK with a 12 hour time limit with the hours between midnight & 8AM not counting?

6. Waiver System: Is everyone OK with this waiver system? In the CA league we came up with this system to avoid yahoo's system of 1st come 1st serve ALL the time. We didn't think it was fair that the 1st person to a computer on Sunday can autmatically pickup a prime backup RB after the starter gets injured. This system is very similar to the nfl.com system and is very fair to everyone.

7. Trades Pass/Veto: Is everyone OK with this system of passing/vetoing trades? Or do we want to have them decided by a league majority vote? Is everyone OK with the in season trade deadline being the default system of the site hosting our league?

8. Playoffs:Is everyone OK with this playoff system?

9. Tiebreakers: Is everyone OK with using the tiebreaker system of the site hosting our league? We'll have ties during the regular season (if they happen). The tiebreaker system will be for seeding & playoff games.[/b]

I think it should be midnight-8am when the clock stops.


Otherwise we agreed on everything else.

Actually, I wrote midnight-8AM in the rough draft, but then made a mistake and wrote noon in one of my posts after that. 8AM is what I meant and I edited my mistake in the other post.

I think that's a good idea Balanced. Not as many people are around over the weekend. ;-D

Initial WW, will this be the inverse of the IDP/rookie/veteran draft??

I like fractions, does this mean each yard is .1 for RB/WR and .05 for QB? or do they have to reach each 10/20 yard milestone?

Everything else looks good

Initial WW will be the reverse order of the veteran draft. I edited that in.

Fractions: exactly. 1/10 rushing & receiving would mean that each yard is worth .1. 1/20 passing would mean that each yard is worth .05. No milestones need to be reached.

Can we put a rule in there with what happens if 2 or more players leave the league before all the drafts are done, but after draft order is determined?

As long as a rule is in place on how that will be handled, I'll be good.

If that does happen, I think the best thing to do would be to just replace the owners that quit in the order they quit. In other words, if owner A quits 1st & then owner B quits, the 1st replacement would take over for owner A & the 2nd replacement would take over for owner B.

How does that sound?
