8th year keeper in middle of Draft needs 2 GMS ASAP

Recommended Posts

Hello I am the founder and commissioner of an 8th year keeper league. We are usually a very active league so we need GM's willing to be active year round. We recently changed our line up setting format and our scoring format for the up coming season so it will be a fun experience for all GM's involved. Below I will post the current rosters for both teams and I will also post the league rules.

League is 100% free to play. We play on CBS commissioner league. Our off season and draft is conducted on a pro board message board specifically designed for the league. We maybe looking to start a fantasy football league this year as well, so if you like football too you may have that opportunity but it is not a mandatory if you do not.

Please NOTE: We do not allowed add/drops during the regular season, however we do have a disabled list which you can read about in the rules, also we do ALLOW trades till the first week of August.

If interested: Email me at as I said the draft is in progress and trades are aloud so you can be active right away. League has been in limbo for a few weeks after 2 GM's suddenly bailed on us would love to get some life back in the league right away and get things moving. Draft will probably take us right up to the start of the season.

How to determine a win:

The team with the most overall points at the end of the week will be given the win.

All 12 teams are divided into two divisions:
American League
National League
The top three teams from each division will participate in the play-offs. The number 1 seed from each division will have a first week bye. The league champion from each league will play for the league championship.

Scheduling Rules:

-Teams play 20 games per regular season
-Teams play 15 divisional games, meaning teams play each divisional team a total of 3 times
-Teams play 5 interleague games, meaning teams play 5 teams from the other division a total of 1 time. Which means teams will not play 1 team from the opposite division. This will continue on a cycle, the team you do not play one year you will play the following year.

The schedule works in the following way:

Weeks 1-5 are divisional games
Weeks 6-15 alternate each week from divisional games and interleague
Week 16* is a bye week All-Stars
Weeks 17-21 are divisional games
Weeks 22-23 are play-offs
Weeks 24-25 is 2 week Championship
*-All star week falls on different weeks occasionally, but is always a bye week

Play-Off Rules:

-Top three teams from each division play in the play-offs
-Both Number one seeds have 1st week bye of play-offs
-Seeds 2 and 3 from each division play first week.
-Winner of each division championship plays each other in Grid Iron Championship game (Week 3 of play-offs)
-Grid Iron Championship game will be 2 weeks long. Winner is determined by score over both weeks
-No teams can add/drop players during play-offs
- Disabled list moves are not allowed during the play-offs
-No team can trade
-If a tie occurs during the play-offs (not including the Championship game) the tiebreaker will be determined by opponent match up during regular season. If there happens to be a tie with that, tie breaker will be division record. In the event there is a third tie breaker needed the team with the best regular season record wins.
- If a tie occurs during the Grid Iron Championship Game the tie breaker will go to stats made with players on the bench. If for some reason theres a tie with stats the tie breakers will follow the play-off tie breakers.

September 15th 2013- Beginning 2015 the league will restructure the scoring structure to follow that of a points system. Each scoring category will be assigned a positive or negative number.
