    ***CHANGE #1***

    This league has evolved greatly since it’s initial inception 8-9 years ago as have the lives of many of the league members, including mine. I have appointed FOUR co-commissioners which are listed on the first page an I will also list here, as well.

    They have ALL of the powers here that I do. They can approve your trades; they can advance the league when everything is ready to go. They can do all of that so if you have any issues, you are free to contact me but if I am unable to respond quickly for whatever reason—if you see one of the others I have appointed around, feel free to run it by them—I feel they’ll do a suitable job making sure nothing bogus gets through.

    League Co-Commissioners

    West Coast (PST/MST)

    I: Gameplay

    I.A: Exploits

    1. Illegal Plays: Nano Blitzing, Motioning Outward* or Mid-Motion Behind the Offensive Line Hiking, "rocket catching" (not the animation catches)Zigzagging your S/LBs to wiggle through the line (That fucks with the AI and you dummies know that), Pulling guys off the line on punt returns.

    *Motioning Outward: All motioning must be INWARD or Left to Right/Right to Left. NO Left side Left Motion or Right side Right Motion. (unless player comes to a complete stop for example: Motioning a left side TE to the left slot and he stops at the LOS.) All motioning OUT OF THE BACKFIELD must come to a complete stop BEFORE HIKING or it is illegal.

    2. Illegal position changes:

    WR can't t move
    QB can't move
    HB can't t move
    OL can only be moved to any OL position
    TE can only be moved to FB
    FB can only be moved to TE
    DE can only be moved to any DE/DT/LB position
    LB can only be moved to any LB/DE position
    DT can only be moved to DE

    DBs can move to wherever you want in the secondary. I'lll allow any safety to cornerback or cornerback to safety move

    ***CHANGE #2****


    I’ve already been asked about a few player moves that I am going to okay and will post in the thread once I approve them. If you feel like you might have a player this would apply to, feel free to let me know and I will give you the go ahead (or not).

    Example: Le’Veon Bell to WR----NO. Ty Montgomery to WR--- YES (He, by default, is a WR and only played RB last year because Green Bay had shit at the position).

    NOTE: If you think you have a situation that you’d like to inquire about---this has to be done during our first preseason before I advance to the regular season---once that happens, this process is done.

    3. No running your manually controlled defensive player around pre-snap to build up his acceleration.

    +Manually moving LBs around to reflect pass coverage or to a different spot on the field is fine, However when you're building up the players acceleration in preparation to jump through a gap/gain a step on the set lineman--thats where the problem lies. You may move your players around on the field prior to the snap but at the snap, they should be set to avoid any suspect issues of building up ones acceleration to gain an advantage.

    4. No manually pulling the d-line to run around into coverage (DE or DT or any LB @ DE or DE @ DT). Hot route hook zones and man coverage is okay if the AI is controller, but manually controlling a DE or DT to instantly drop into coverage is illegal

    5. HB/FB/TE BACKFIELD STREAKS: The HB/FB/TE (out of the backfield) Streak is banned effective immediately. Ever since Doug started doing this, complaints have been nearly non-stop in regards to it being a shady play. Since conversation started on this topic, other teams have started to adopt it with the mindset "well if its not banned, I'm going to do it". So with that being said, I am banning the HB/FB/TE (out of the backfield) Streak effective immediately. There is no play in the playbook that has the HB/FB/TE running a streak from the backfield, it a hot route audible that you have to do yourself and so with that being said, it will be banned immediately.

    I.B: Sportsmanship

    1. Cutthroat: If an opponent disconnects and you are able to take a win at ANY time the game allows, you are free to do so.

    2. Grieving: If an opponent disconnects for grieving, then you must quote the commish for further action, but you also must have a screen shot showing the opponent was actually kicked for grieving before I do anything about it. Also at this time, please also present the situation of the game (Score, Quarter, Time Left, Down/Distance). This will be decided on a case by case basis as its clear to me that the whole "kicked for grieving" seems to be a bit more broad than it was in past Maddens.

    3. Don't Be An Asshole: There is no reason to be running up the score on teams just because you can. You may play a game against an opponent significantly worse than you are so simply play the game with class. If it gets out of hand then simply drain the clock and get it over with. This is something that shouldn't have to be reiterated but the fact of the matter is, it does.

    4. I know we all hate each other, but please show some respect to your opponent. At the end of the day if I feel it is getting too personal over who won a video game. Things are going to get heated at times but try to keep it mellow because if someone elects to report you and a mod takes it into his own hands, not much I can do for you at that point so please, keep that in mind.

    5. 4th Down Rule

    1) You may go for it on 4th down at any point of the game when you are past your own 45 yard line.
    2) You may go for it on 4th down in the second half with 3:00 left in the 3rdquarter through the rest of the game if you are losing from anywhere on the field

    6. Quitting Out


    I repeat, DO NOT QUIT OUT. Madden has decided to change it so that if you quit out of a game, you're opponent will NOT get the win/xp etc. It has to replayed. That should be common knowledge to the league by now. If you are getting stomped then just stick with it and take your loss. If you have ANY complaints after the game and wish to have them addressed then please do that after the game while bringing any proof to the table at that time and it will be dealt with.

    Now if you QUIT out of a game and don't have some excellent excuse then you're opponent will get the CPU but your team will also be BOOTED for the week (not autopilot) so you will lose coaching XP. It's annoying to have people quit and force the other team to have to play all over again.

    If you have an issue with the game (i.e. the other team running it up or whatever it might be) then bring any and all evidence at the games conclusion and I will handle it.

    7. CPU Spamming rules: Applies only to User vs CPU games.

    Can only restart vs a CPU a maximum of 3x for any reasons. Must notify me of the reason for any restart.

    Max 250 Receiving Yards for any Receiver
    Max 300 Rushing Yards for any Running Back
    Max 500 Passing Yards for any Quarterback
    Max 4 sacks for any one player
    13 receptions for any one player

    Max 4 TDs for position players
    Max 5 TDs for Quarterbacks

    Only exception being that it is a close game and you had to do what you had to in order to win. However, you better damn well make sure it is a fucking dogfight. If it's debatable on whether it was a close game or not there will be no debate. You will forfeit a draft pick and/or miss games to simulation.

    So, I don't have to make any judgment for punishments based on a violation of these rules I will make this shit clear up front. You will be suspended for 1game/or forfeit a draft pick for any violation of these rules.

    8. No custom Playbooks.

    II. Trading:

    New League Member Trade Restrictions:

    1. All trades must be discussed publicly in the official league thread.

    - No backdoor trading (no trading via private message, facebook, skype, texting, google+, etc)

    2. There is NO limit on the number of trades you may complete per season with the new salary cap function being added.

    ***CHANGE #3***


    NO MORE COMMITTEE VOTING FOR TRADES. Obviously if the trade involves one of us, they’ll need to seek approval from another presiding member.

    II.B Free Agency


    1. If you have more than six games simmed or a game in which your opponent played the CPU, you will be unable to draft the following year. You will still get draft picks but you cannot select them. Prior to the draft, I will put your team on auto pilot and the CPU will draft for you. So you won't be affected by not getting players but rather not the ones you were gunning for.

    Please make sure you have time for this league. It's not fair to others that do make time for their games. If you don't have the time then I ask you please step down so I can fill your team with an owner who does have the time.

    *Games simmed in the final two weeks because they are non-playoff related will not count towards this total.

    IIa: Salary Cap

    You have a salary cap to meet and maintain, so do it.

    III: Privacy Clauses/Thread Discussion/Harassment/Respect/Maturity Issues

    1. This is simple. Be mature about what you say and do. No posting peoples personal information/photos/dick pix without their prior approval. We are all grown up here, lets act like it.

    III.A Broadcasting Games

    1. There is to be no public broadcasting of games via Justin.TV, Stickam, Skype---whatever without approval from BOTH participants in the said game, period. You may post clips/games after it has been completed but as stated, are not allowed to live stream games without the consent of your opponent.

    IV. Punishments

    Will be dealt with on a case by case basis as they arise.

    VI. Advancements

    Advancements are EVERY 72-ish hours. However there are a few exceptions to this rule:.

    a. League will advance if ALL games are in prior to the 72 hour rule

    b. League will advance if ALL games are in with the exception of one or two, this happens in the event there has been very little/no attempt at contacting/scheduling with each other in this thread. This thread is used as a monitor to see who's active and who isn't. If you make very little attempt to schedule/play your game, the rest of the league will not be waiting on you and we will advance.

    ***CHANGE #4***

    c. All league game scheduling MUST be done in this thread. Scheduling outside of this thread does not let me or the other commissioners know what is going on with that specific game. If it is not scheduled in here, I assume there hasn't been any scheduling and we will NOT be waiting for the game. Again, USE THIS THREAD TO SCHEDULE GAMES.

    d. The league WILL wait for your game so long as a) It has been scheduled IN THIS THREAD but also b) Has a concrete time scheduled between both opponents. I.E. Player X is playing Player Y tomorrow at 5:45PM EST---WE WAIT. I.E. Player X is playing Play Y sometime tomorrow, we aren't sure when---LEAGUE DOES NOT WAIT. WE MOVE.

    e. User/CPU games are NEVER going to be the last game. If they are, it gets advanced unless I’ve been contacted and made aware of a situation out of your control.

    f. If one user makes a solid attempt to contact his opponent and gets very little cooperation in return via no contact or piss poor scheduling times, the user who made the attempt(s) will get to play the CPU. IE: The 24 hour rule. EFFORT MUST BE MADE TO REMAIN ACTIVE IN THE LEAGUE

    g. In an effort to speed up the league late in the season and get to the playoffs, weeks 16 and 17 advances will occur once all user-user games with CPU implications are in. We will not wait for games that have no impact on the playoff race at this point in the season.

    ***CHANGE #5***

    The league will initially be set on ALL-PRO difficulty. Last year (or maybe the last two years) we’ve played on All-Madden difficulty. I’m toning it down one level because our league is only ¾ full and so I want to ensure that all users are able to compete and be in their divisional races at least for ¾ of the season.

    A lot of users were losing to CPUs over the last few years meanwhile the top tier users would still crush them like cans. I want to try and level the playing field for all levels of users to hopefully stir up more competition.

    no thank you lol. I will look.
  20. xslamfistx


    Realistically, what are you looking to get for this guy?
  21. xkj1985x

    Go Dawgs! Prestigious

    Players of interest include:

    Eddie Goldman
    Kyle Fuller
    Adrian Amos

    and that's really it. I like Kevin White too, but I don't think I'd just do a WR swap there. Don't care for the INJ, too much plus his cap hit is probably not light.

    I think I'd like something on defense if I do move Switzer.
  22. Vanislh


    Okay cool lets put something in place

    I'll look tonight! Amos or Goldman could work, not moving fuller!
  23. Vanislh


    I'll look over your crew tonight!

    Go Dawgs! Prestigious

    Amos would probably actually be my first preference since I need a safety.

    If you see anything else from me, maybe we could make it a 2-2 and I will take Kevin White as well.
