Welcome to the Franchise Sim League (FSL). This league stems from the tradition of the Federal Sim League which is an OOTP-based community that has been operating for 3 full years now (11 in game seasons). The values of our community are simple:
1) Respect everyone - doesn't mean you need to be best friends and rivalries are great...just leave the personal attacks at the door (we are not Democrats and Republicans here).
2) Have fun - losses happen, that is part of the game. No player will win every game. Respect the losses when the come, congratulate your opponent and move on. If you get angry after the game - remember THIS IS MADDEN AND IT WILL PISS YOU OFF! Step away, hit a punching bag, go for a run, work out....hell SPIKE A CONTROLLER just don't cause drama in the general chats.
3) Be fair - this is not a win at all cost league. The cash prizes go to the best people and active owners in the league.
CASH PRIZES (No entry free at all and winning is not rewarded)
Part of the history of the FSL community is to award league activity. There are two cash prizes that will be awarded each season:
1) Survivor Pool winner = $25
2) Owner of the Year = $25
The owner of the year award goes to the one owner voted most active and liked by his peers. This award goes to an owner WHO MISSES THE PLAYOFFS but remained active in the spirit of competition. You may only win this award once per game season but awards good sportsmanship.
We are just launching this league today - November 21st so we expect teams to fill quickly
