- Opponents must contact each other via e-mail or IM and alert the league

- There is to be a 30 second play clock set for every game. If the
clock has not been set it must be turned on immediately after one player
notices that it has not been turned on. There is no penalty asessed.
- Sportsmanship is required. Congratulate your opponent on a good game
and wish them luck before the game. Do not whine about how the game
engine has robbed you of victory. The game engine, no matter how flawed
it is, does not discriminate against either team. As the song say, "you
take the good, you take the bad and there you have...the facts of life".
Deal with it and move on !
- All games are played using a neutral dome stadium field (ie..Superdome).
Make sure the neutral field is chosen prior to starting. If the game has
started and a neutral field has not been chosen the game will have to be
re-started from the beginning.
4th Down Rules
- You can NOT go for it on 4th down if you are
on your side of the field unless:
- There is 10 minutes or less left in the game
- Your team is down by 21 or more points at any time during the game
- You have the ball on your opponents side of the field (50 yard line on
Failure to follow the 4th down rule results in the following:
- Voiding the 4th down play
- Closing the game and RESUMING from the previous play, which wipes out the
4th down play
- If the START / RESUME feature does not work a immediate PUNT to your
opponent must be done.
- If a 4th down violation occurs during the game and goes un-noticed the
games results will not count. It is incumbent on both players to
recognize the rule and respect it. This rule has been instituted to
preserve the integrity of game play, because we acknowledge that the game
engine does not accurately handle 4th down situations. Anyone who does
not agree with this rule, need not participate in this tournament.
Plenty of other leagues will allow you to exploit this hole in the software.
We DO NOT.
