GOT EM’ COACH - Incentive to Play a Full Season
We all enjoy a competitive sim league for a full 17 week regular season and not just until you are out of playoff contention. In order to help prevent users from giving force wins we have implemented the following:
Got Em’ Coach (Weeks 13 - 17)
1 win = trait or Dev bump (Normal to Star)
2 wins = trait or Dev bump (Normal to Star)
3 wins = Dev bump (Normal to Star OR Star to Superstar)
4 wins = Dev bump (Normal to Star OR Star to Superstar)
5 wins = Dev bump (Normal to Star OR Star to Superstar OR Superstar to XFactor)
Starts at teams .500 or below playing a team that is OVER .500. You must have been active for at least 12 games with up to 2 scheduling conflicts allowed (ask a commish if this is confusing). Mutual sim wins do NOT count.

Overtime: Play to Win
If you put a WR in motion, he must come to a complete stop before you snap the ball.
If the motion goes behind the line of scrimmage, the player must come to a stop past the opposite side tackle.
Do NOT motion a WR back and forth every play to see if your opponent is in man or zone coverage.
Only 3 hurry up plays per possession are allowed EXCEPT:
Unlimited within 2 minute warning
Unlimited down 3 possessions (17 points or more)
When punting, do NOT rugby or bullet punt trying to get the ball to hit the returner for a fumble.
Do NOT chew clock unless it is under 2 minutes and your opponent is out of timeouts OR you are up by 45 points. Play ball!
ALWAYS rush at LEAST 3 players.
Do NOT drop DTs into coverage.
You may ONLY manually move 2 players before the snap.
Do NOT drop a man back on punt returns for an extra blocker. It does not work anyway, so please just patiently wait for the punt.
Do NOT run up the score on your opponent or pad stats. *45 point win margin*
If you are up by 45 points, please chew the clock. This will also help prevent your players from getting injured.
If you are going to onside kick you must call the actual play. You may NOT try to squib up the middle when your opponent is in onside kick return because the game does not allow you to audible.
