Once a player is active on your roster for a game he can't be placed on your Taxi squad!

College Prospects - You can have as many college prospects on your team, but you still must be able to put in a full starting lineup every single week (Refer to tanking) The draft prospects you can draft must be draft eligible players only, NO Freshman.

Veto on trades - A trade that is in question a poll will be put up and 7 votes to the winning side.

After week 17 the offseason will begin for this league and IR and Taxi squad players should be added to the active roster. Offseason waivers will be $200 blind bid for the offseason.....So spend it wisely and no blind bid dollars can't be traded!

Offseason Trading - Offseason trading will open up after week 17 (Tuesday morning), When you pay your fee for the following season you are allowed to trade for the following season.

Tanking -
Tanking is loosely defined as throwing a game to obtain a better draft position, or to avoid making a WW drop to find a starter. And it is not permitted.

You must make an attempt to field a valid lineup every week.

In regards to injured players, you are expected to make an attempt to not field players who are clearly "out". However, sometimes this information is not timely - we all get burned by this from time to time, so this can be left up to the commissioner's judgment. Suffice to say, if you start "out" players week after week, you will probably be asked about tanking.

Lastly, you are generally expected to field your most competitive lineup. Note the word "generally", as it gives you plenty of freedom to play matchups or hunches. But if you sit your #1 RB for an injured third stringer because you had a dream about it, and the resulting loss just happens to lock up a top pick next year, expect to be called on it.

If you suspect a fellow player of tanking, bring it to the commissioner, who will then speak to the offending party to try and determine what happened. Sometimes what one person sees as tanking really isn't, and anyone accused of tanking deserves a chance to defend their position. In addition, the accused owner should post a thread in the message board, defending their position.

Guilt of tanking will judged by the commissioner, who may or may not ask for a league vote to help him. The penalty for a first offense is a warning. The second is removal from the league.

Bottom line: You know when you are tanking and so do we. Don't do it.

Transactions -

a) It is the owner's responsibility to ensure that the transaction they are making is correct.

b) The owner must contact the commissioner within 15 minutes of the accepted transaction in order for it to be reversed. If the time-stamped email/phone call is received after the 15 minute grace period, the transaction is final.

c) Attempts to deceive another owner as to the identity of a player in a transaction may lead to sanctions by the commissioner or league. (Example - Adrian Peterson of MIN and Adrian Peterson of CHI)

Unforeseen Problems -
Things come up and I understand that. If you are unable to submit a lineup for whatever reason, please e-mail me (Zimm2213@gmail.com.com). if I don't answer and I will change things for you. This is a fail safe method for owners that run across unforeseen problems. I will have a time-stamped record to show the league if there is any question to the validity of the change.

Removing an owner -

a) It is in the best interest of the league to never make this a practice. However, there are rare occasions where it is unavoidable (i.e. - rude and abusive owner, prolonged owner inactivity, etc.). In this case, a league wide vote will be called and a majority vote is needed to remove the owner.

b) There are circumstances where a vote is not needed. These include, but are not limited to: 1) Tanking 2) Collusion and/or cheating 3) Refusal to pay league

Rule Changes -

This league is property of all the owners as a whole. My feeling is that the league can always be made better and I will rely on everyone to help make it better. Rule changes are determined by a majority vote by all of the owners. Anytime there is an owner that has a concern on an issue, he can email the commissioner and ask that the issue be put to a league vote. The majority will rule and the commissioner will break any ties.

Disclaimer -

Commissioner reserves the right to call to vote and/or make a decision on any action he feels disrupts the balance of the league or is a blatantly immoral decision (tanking, waiver wire trading, etc.).
