Free 44 team league needs owners

Postby billy17 » Wed Aug 07, 2013 6:13 pm

Free 44-team fantasy NFL league scored on Fantrax. The league is divided up into four player universes (conferences vary) where each team is a D-1 school. Teams get special keeper rights to players that went to their school. Teams can keep as many alumni as they want and those picks will be applied to the end of their draft. Teams can also keep up to 3 non alumni and those picks will be applied at the beginning of the draft.

Roster Settings:
30 total roster slots

19 Starting Positions are as follows...
QB-RB-RB-WR-WR-WR-TE
LB-LB-LB-DL-DL-DL-DB-DB-DB-DB-IDP
K

There are no IR spots.

Conference Set-Up
As of 2013, the league returns to its six-conference format but with a twist. Conference sizes may vary. Each conference is its own player universe. This allows an unfair advantage to allow strong conferences, mimic real life, and add a conference ranking element to the BCS ranking system that is used for post-season matchups. Conferences can change size year-to-year.

Top Tier = 8 teams, SEC
Second Tier = 10 teams, Pac-10
Third Tier = 12 teams, Big XII
Fourth Tier = 14 teams, Big Ten

The number of teams in each conference can change each year. This is based on which tier they are placed. How conferences change tiers is based on conference performance in the post-season. Points are awarded for post-season wins.
+1 point for each post-season berth by a conference's teams
+1 bonus point for each post-season win
+1 bonus point for each playoff win
+1 bonus point for making it to National Championship
+1 bonus point for winning National Title

The points are tallied up for each conference. The top three conferences will move up a tier. The bottom three conferences will move down a tier. For conferences already at the top or bottom tier and can no longer move higher or lower, respectively, they will secure their same tier and will be excluded from moving.

Conferences do not have to move up a tier, but must move down if they don't have enough points. For conferences that are offered to move up a tier, a vote will be held in the off-season by everyone in the conference to approve or veto the move. It is advantageous to move up a tier because your conference will likely now have stronger teams compared to lower conferences. Two teams must be contracted in any upward move and those will be the two worst teams in the conference that year. Those teams, if eligible to remain in Alumni Showdown, can apply to join other conferences as long as it is geographically reasonable.

When conferences move down a tier, they will have two spots open for expansion teams. Teams can apply to the conference and the returning members of the conference will vote to approve an application as long as it is geographically reasonable. Depending on the quality of the applying team, a conference may not want a certain team to join their conference.

What happens is when a conference must contract two teams then it will contract the inactive teams to the fifth tier. If there aren't enough inactive teams then the worst teams will be kicked out of the conference and go to the fifth tier. GMs of those teams have the choice to lead the fantasy league effort to score one of those conferences in order to retain their team. When a conference expands then there would be a maximum of eight available spots. With six conferences not scored, the conference champions and best available teams, ordered by final NCAA/AP ranking will be available. Teams must be a geographic fit.

Conference historic ties and rivalries have a lot to do with it as well. It is a fun fantasy league with realism, so that may impact voting when conferences change size.
