Comparisons will be made in 14 statistical categories to determine the winner in
each "Head to Head" game.
Lineup Submission Deadline:
Gametime - Players are locked at scheduled kickoff of their game.
For week #1, if you do not submit a line up, we will randomly select the starters
If an Owner goes 2 consecutive weeks without submitting a line up, (or
contacting us), we will try to contact you. If we do not get a response, we will assume
you have dropped the team. (Owners will also lose their team if they fail to submit a lineup
3 times during the regular season)
If you drop or lose your team, there is no refund.

Sandbagging will NOT be allowed at anytime. If it is deemed you are NOT starting your
best players on a regular basis you will forfeit ownership of ALL of your teams.
- Not starting your best players in an attempt to enhance next season's draft spot, or help a friend win
will not be allowed at anytime.
Any Team owner deemed by us and/or members of that person's league has become
disruptive, and attempts to sabotage the league in any way will be warned. Should
the disruption continue, that owner will be lose his/her teams.
If we see what we consider to be "collusion", we will contact both owners and warn them.

We do not give refunds if your team is dropped. We also do not refund for the instances
After the rosters are set, all players not on a team can be picked up during the Waivers process.
There is one round of Waivers after the Pre-season draft, and before Week #1 of the NFL season.
During the Season, we process the Waivers each Tuesday and Friday evening, and post the
results immediately. (you will also receive an e-mail as they are processed)
The selection order for Waivers during the season goes in reverse order of the
current year-to-date record of each team. (tiebreaker = least points scored).
There are 2 rounds, and they are processed seperately.
For Week #1, the order for Waivers goes in reverse order of the previous year's final results.
Click here for more help / information on Player Waivers.
You can start a Waiver selection the same week he is aquired.
Your Roster will contain a maximum of 18 spots.
At all times - A minimum of QB-1, RB's-2, WR/TE's-3, K-1, DT-1
Your Starters are : QB's= 1, RB's= 2, WR's/TE's= 3, K= 1, DT= 1.
Be sure to keep track of how many players you have. If you have a full Roster (18 players),
and try to pick up a player, you MUST list a player to drop. If not, you will not get your Waiver selection.
A player dropped from a team is not eligible to be picked up on the Waiver wire until the following week.
For Friday Waivers, be sure you DON'T try to pick up or drop a player that just played Thursday.
(your Waiver request won't go through)
Waiver requests are due each Tuesday and Friday evening.
No Waiver pick-ups during the playoffs.
The weekly Waiver draft slots cannot be traded.

Before and during the season you can contact the other owners in your league to discuss
strategies and to work out trades. Trades can be of almost any type, 2 for 1, 3 for 2,
etc. You can submit a trade to an Owner automatically. Once he/she receives it, he/she
simply clicks the "Approve" or "Disapprove" button on their league webpage.
The commissioner then receives the trade, and will approve or disapprove it within
24 hours. (Note: Trades made late on a Saturday will most likely NOT go through before the Sunday NFL games)
During the regular season, a player traded from one team cannot be traded from the same owner back to the
original team for 4 weeks. This is to prevent "collusion", and to keep Owners from trading players back and forth weekly.
Trading Deadline: The day before the NFL Week 8 games start.
If you traded 1 player for 2, and now have too many, you must drop a player. You will NOT be able to
submit Waivers OR a Lineup if your Roster exceeds 18 Players.
Blatantly unfair trades, such as Fred Taylor for Robert Holcomb will be denied.
All trades will be subject to the Commissioner's approval and should be done in the
spirit of fair play.
We reserve the right to "reverse" a trade if it is the best interest of the league.
