    League Rules

    Note: The new min win rule will take effect in the 1997 season.

    1.0: Commissioners (current: boicey, joeblow, makila)
    1.1 – Commissioners can be removed for any reason by a 2/3-majority league vote
    1.2 – New commissioners must be elected by a 2/3-majority league vote
    1.5 – Decisions made by the commissioners are final. Decisions made by the head commissioner can be overruled by a majority of the remaining commissioners.

    1.7: Moderators (current: Anathema, DanielPaton, Newtzzz, no_statik)
    1.7.1 - Moderators will help with day to day operations of the league. Such as: running the draft, tracking trades, tracking min wins, etc.
    1.7.2 - Moderators are not included in Commissioner responsibilities.
    1.7.3 - Appointed by Commissioner team.

    2.0: Ownership / Wait list
    2.1 – New owners must be voted in by a 2/3-majority vote if running unopposed
    2.2 – In cases where two or more owners are vying for the available spot(s) the league owners will rank the owners who they feel are qualified to enter the league. The owner with the most points wins. It is possible to give an owner 0 points (1/3 or more of the league giving 0 points = denied entry)
    2.3 – Owners may be removed for any reason by a 2/3-majority league vote

    3.0: League Conduct
    3.1 – Personal attacks are forbidden, Posts containing personal attacks are subject to deletion

    4.0: Activity
    4.1 – A unanimous vote of the commissioner panel may be used to remove any owner, particularly an inactive owner. An inactive owner is one who misses excessive picks and or polls. An owner who does not log in to the game for 10 or more consecutive days may also be considered inactive. Other grounds for being considered inactive include failing to reply to pm's and failing to be competitive. Four consecutive seasons of missing 3/200 or winning less than 50 games (49 and below) in a single season will be used as guidelines. Note: If one of the commissioners is being considered for removal they will be excluded from the vote.
    4.2.1 - In the event that an owner is removed by the commissioner panel due to win totals, they are eligible to be on the ballot for the team coming open.
    4.2.2 - If previous owner removed for win totals is voted back in by the league, the window on minimum wins will reset and be treated as a new owner. Any earned penalties are applied (see 5.1).

    5.0: – Competitiveness
    5.1 – All owners must win 50 games in any season and 200 games in every rolling 3 year window starting the first time 4/1 is passed while said owner is in possession of their team. Failure to do so will result in a 5 spot draft penalty. These penalties are applied, and stay with the teams, regardless of ownership changes. If a team wins under 50 games and misses 3/200 in the same season, the penalties will stack resulting in a 10 spot penalty.

    6.0: Draft
    6.1 – There will be a 2 round live draft each season run using the block draft format with 6 teams per block. Each block will have 24 hours to pick.
    6.4 – Autopicks will be assigned the highest ranked player at the end of the following block. The owner will be able to make a selection between their pick and the time of autopick if not assigned yet. Autopick is defined as the highest default ranked player (salary).
    6.5 – A lottery system will be used to determine the order of the first 8 picks
    70 balls into a barrel - Drawing the 8th spot first

    8th has 17
    7th has 15
    6th has 13
    5th has 9
    4th has 7
    3rd has 5
    2nd has 3
    1st has 1

    Selecting from the 8th spot to number 1. The 8th spot has the highest percentage of being drawn first in the lottery meaning 8th place

    8th spot @ 24% being drawn 8th
    7th spot @ 21% being drawn 8th
    6th spot @ 19% being drawn 8th
    5th spot @ 13% being drawn 8th
    4th spot @ 10% being drawn 8th
    3rd spot @ 7% being drawn 8th
    2nd spot @ 4% being drawn 8th
    1st spot @ 1% being drawn 8th

    7.0: Trading
    7.1 - Draft picks may be traded up to two seasons in advance. Pre 7/15 this means the current seasons picks and next seasons picks. Post 7/15 this means the next two seasons picks.
    7.2 – Picks that have been assessed a penalty before they are traded will retain that penalty. All penalties will be assigned to the owner’s next available pick at the time the penalty is assessed
    7.3 - All trades must be posted in the forum, Trades involving draft picks should also be posted in the appropriate years traded draft pick thread. Draft pick trades that occur after the draft has begun should be posted in the active draft thread.

    8.0: Names/Stadiums
    8.1 – Stadiums can be changed at anytime during the offseason
    8.2 – Team name changes must occur during the offseason unless there is a new owner
    8.3 – Player rename requests should be posted in the league forum; there is no limit to renames allowed per owner.

    9.0: Voting/ Rule change
    9.1 – Polls will remain open for 7 days and all votes will be public
    9.2 – Mandatory polls will be marked
    9.3 – Any owner may start a poll to change a league rule ½-league majority needed to change the rule

    Re: League Rules

    We (makila, boicey, joeblow) add these sub rules to 4.2:

    4.2.1 - In the event that an owner is removed by the commissioner panel due to win totals, they are eligible to be on the ballot for the team coming open.
    4.2.2 - If previous owner removed for win totals is voted back in by the league, the window on minimum wins will reset and be treated as a new owner. Any earned penalties are applied (see 5.1).
