Time Expiration During Draft
  • After 6 hours on the clock for a pick in round 1, Commissioner will likely replace you. The 1st round timer is 6 hours.
  • Time limit. It is 8 hours and is shut off overnight from 2AM EST to 8AM EST. If you let your clock expire, NFL Draft rule applies. Your pick will be skipped. Owners picking after you may make selections. You may make your selection at any time by contacting the commissioner with your pick. The commissioner may replace you.
  • If you let the clock expire a second time, the commissioner will almost assuredly replace you..
  • If you are on the turn, you get 8 hours for BOTH picks. Don’t be the guy that makes one pick and comes back later for the 2nd pick. This is a borderline kick-out-of-league offense to me. The system allows 16 hours, don’t let it happen.
  • If you miss setting your lineup twice, the commissioner is almost guaranteed to replace you.
  • If you don’t login to the site in over 14 days (meaning 14 days and 1 minute or more)… the commissioner reserves the right to replace you. You may get an email if you haven’t logged in in over 10 days.
Accidental Drop / Lineup Move
  • Accidental Drop: you must contact me within an hour for me to reverse it should someone else pick that player up.
  • Accidental Lineup move: you must contact me within an hour for me to reverse it and the mistake must be somewhat obvious to me.
Waiver Moves
  • Waivers will run Wednesday at 1PM EST.
  • After 1PM EST Wed. It will be First Come, Firse Serve until Sunday at noon.
  • No players will be allowed to be picked up from noon Sunday until the Wed. waiver run.
Setting Lineups
  • If you do not set a lineup for week 1 before kickoff on Sunday, the commish will set a lineup for that team and possibly replace the owner.
  • Lineups will rollover this year from week to week. However, to keep the integrity of the league and make sure everyone is active, you must login to the MFL site at least once every 10 days. You will be emailed if you exceed 10 days on the “Franchise Activity” module on MFL. Multiple occurances or failure to respond to an emailed reminder by logging into the site prior to the following weeks games could result in removal from the league.
Team Ownership
  • If you are invited and given a team in SFB, that team is yours. You may not give it away in a contest or sell it in any fashion.
  • If you are invited and given a team in SFB, you may not transfer that team. You were personally invited. That team does not belong to the site you write for. If you are unable to participate you can not give it to a friend. The team will be taken away and given to someone on the waitlist if this has been found to have been done.
SFB Playoff Rules
  • Top 50% make the playoffs
  • Each team with the best record in their division gets a bye. The team with the most points (or second most if the best record has most points) gets a bye
  • Playoffs start week 14. If someone manages to win 9 games but doesn’t qualify for the playoffs, they will be added as an extra team
  • Week 14 the top 50% of playoff teams based on points that week move on. Week 15 top 50% based on points move on. Week 16 the top 5 scorers that week get prizes!


Team Name

This may seem unimportant to you, but it matters for my code and database. Your name must remain in this format. Please tell me if you need/wish to change your name and we will change it together.

Best Interest Clause

(Or, In case I forgot some things)

Should circumstances, issues, or problems arise for which a remedy is not stated in the Rules… the Commissioner reserves the right to take whatever actions he deems necessary in the best interest of the league. He may consult with some or all other owners and/or possibly take a vote.


Why such a big bench, no kickers, no defenses, and no trading, etc?
Many of us have a lot of leagues. This one is designed so that it takes less effort each week than your other leagues. With deep benches, the waiver wire will be less intensive. Without K or D, you won’t have to worry about getting them for your bye weeks. Also, they are a little annoying to me. Without trading, all that energy can be spent on your other leagues and there will be no chance of collusion.
