:::::::::: COMMISSIONER STATEMENT ::::::::::
Simulation (noun): imitation of a situation or process.
Now that that is out of the way…
FIRST and FOREMOST, this is a SIMULATION League. The intention of this league is to CREATE an ideal SIM environment in which owners BUILD their respective teams through Player Progression, Free Agency and Rookie Drafts. ALL or n0thin' League will enforce STRICT rules to make sure the INTEGRITY and REPUTATION of this league will stay intact. Commissioners and Administrators understand that life happens and things come up that are out of our control, but COMMUNICATION is KEY in not only a video game, but LIFE in general.
If you work with us, we will definitely work with YOU!
We WELCOME and THANK YOU for joining the ALL or n0thin' League and hope that we work toward ENHANCING your Madden experience for years to come!

:::::::::: PRIZES ::::::::::
TSG League is a PRIZE League.
What does that mean?
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY - You will NOT have to put in money out of your pocket at any time to join and/or participate in the prizes although all donations are appreciated. The only cost is to play SIM
At the conclusion of EACH season in TSG the Super Bowl Winner and Division winners
Keep in mind. I'm taking my own time and using my own funds to get all of this accomplished. To me, it is worth it to have a FULL league with a group of GOOD people to keep the Madden love ALIVE. Also, giving out the prizes throughout the season gives those that may NEVER make the playoffs or see a Super Bowl Title intrigued and willing to keep playing each and every week. Lastly, it is my way to show appreciation to those that join and follow each and every rule and can accept the feedback take the disciplinary action if it ever comes down to that.
Again, THANK YOU for joining.

:::::::::: SCHEDULING ::::::::::
** LEAGUE DISCLAIMER **
In order to be a part of TSG or ANY league, you will have to have the appropriate work / life balance. If you know you work nights or 15 hours a day, then league play MAY NOT be for you. Be CONSIDERATE of other owners that do make the time for league play.
1. Owners MUST contact each other to AT LEAST schedule either a TENTATIVE or SOLID time for kickoff. This will provide a “basis” for both parties to go by in the case of a missed scheduled time.
2. Owners MUST Direct Message (DM) opponent AND tag opponent notifying DM in their weekly team schedule chat on discord, this way we all see the effort put forth to get your games in.
3. If the owner does not respond within 48 hours of the DM’d stamped time, the last sending owner can decide whether to:
* Still choose to PLAY the opponent
* Take the FAIR SIM
* Take the FORCE WIN
4. An owner is NOT ALLOWED to give up more than two (2) force wins WITHOUT explanation in ANY season; doing so will result in REMOVAL of the league.
5. ANY discrepancy or scheduling issues MUST be sent via Direct Message to a League Commissioner. If sent in discord other than DM, the issue will be INVALID and a FAIR SIM will be issued for that week.
6. Commissioners must respond to a message within 6 hours.
7. Owners MUST notify a Commissioner in advance (at least 1 day, if possible) of any extended TDY/Leave/Vacation etc…
8. If an owner does give proper notice, the opponent for that week has to either PLAY the auto or SIM that week.
9. If an owner does NOT meet the appropriate advance notice criteria, the opponent has the option of:
* Playing opponents AUTO PILOT (must follow auto pilot rules)
* Receiving the FORCE WIN
10. Disciplinary actions due to scheduling are subject to:
* Game Suspensions
* Removal from League (pending Council Review)
11. League Commissioner will be keeping an ongoing list for the ENTIRE Madden cycle for tracking purposes.
12. If a game is SCHEDULED and an owner is unresponsive, they have NO MORE than 30 minutes AFTER the agreed upon time. If the unresponsive owners time expires, the waiting party has the decision of a FORCE WIN or to continue to play the owner of that week.
13. NOBODY wants to play the CPU or Fair Sim. The agreed upon advance schedule gives owners more than enough time to play a single game and is with the expectation of TSG that you make time to play your games as soon as possible.
14. Owners that wait until advance day to make initial contact, if the league is waiting on games in that scenario, that week will be SIMMED. If an owner shows a pattern of doing such offenses, disciplinary action will be enforced.
15. All scheduling rules include playoffs.
16. If the agreed upon time is not met without any communication THERE WILL BE DISCIPLINARY ACTION.....WARNING, GAME SUSPENSION, and the REMOVAL. Everyone here has lives like the next person and shouldn't have to wait on yours. Communication is key.
:::::::::: BROADCASTING ::::::::::
1. With these rules in place the AWAY TEAM will have to BROADCAST each and every week in by way of either Mixer or Twitch.
2. If League Commissioner finds reason that both parties need to start broadcasting, league will be properly notified and rules will be updated accordingly.
3. Even though the league requires the away team to broadcast, the home team does have the option broadcast.
4. The reasoning behind broadcasting in general is to ensure all teams are following league rules and gives owners the ability to provide proof of any gameplay discrepancies.
5. The following excuses are NOT acceptable:
* Internet Speed not enough to support broadcasting;
* Limited Internet Options due to geographical location;
* Don’t have a Twitch Account? (https://help.twitch.tv/customer/portal/articles/2495396-broadcasting-from-xbox)
* Not familiar with Mixer? (Hit the XBOX button; Locate the Satellite Dish next to the messages tab; Select Start Broadcast; You will also find the broadcasting link as well).
6. Disciplinary actions due to failure to broadcast are subject to:
* Game Suspensions
* Removal from League (pending Council Review)
7. Users are only allowed to not broadcast with COMMISSIONER/OVERSEER APPROVAL ONLY (must be able to provide proof).
8. During gameplay, if a Commissioners sends a message that your broadcast is not working, user in question MUST pause and get the broadcast working. Saying that you didn’t see the message WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
9. When broadcasting from either Mixer or Twitch, make sure to RECORD (ARCHIVE) previous game footage. This will allow for administrators to go back and review tape of alleged violations.
* To archive on Mixer; Log-In; Under settings (click martian man next to your gamertag); select manage channel; under broadcast tab, make sure “Keep Recordings of my Streams” is checked.
* To archive on Twitch; Log-In; In the upper right, click your username; select “Video Producer”; On the left hand side, under settings, select “Channel”; make sure “Store Past Broadcasts” is checked.
10. When the league is at 100% capacity, each week, League Commissioner will pick a Game of the Week (GOW) that MUST be played during PRIMETIME HOURS (between 5 - 10 EST) where others are available to spectate.
11. GOW ( Game of the Week ) team owners (at least one) must let an Comissioner or Overseer know of game time.
12. If schedules do not match up during primetime hours, that must also be explained to Commissioners as well.

* 4th QUARTER: If the WINNING team is up by 14+ points with UNDER 2:00 left in the quarter, it will be a FORCE WIN, unless the winning team decides to RESTART in its ENTIRETY.

* In the event of a de-sync during gameplay, both users must keep in contact with how to proceed after the de-sync occurs; scheduling with an opponent rules are still in effect; meaning an opponent has 20 minutes to respond in coming up with a solution on how to proceed.
12. Going on AUTO for an ENTIRE season IS NOT ALLOWED without an appropriate explanation and APPROVAL by ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF.
13. When submitting FORMAL complaints against another owner, you MUST provide VIDEO proof to an administrator (if necessary). Verbal complaints will be noted, but not sufficient enough for action.

QB - cannot exceed 450 yards passing;
HB - cannot exceed 255 yards rushing;

* If you player reaches this stat sub in your bench player most likely you're winning anyway.
* Recognizing that there are factors in Madden that can determine different statistical outcomes (OT / Injuries), how many possession a team is up, and for that, they will be handled on a case by case basis.
* When a game in question is under review, Commissioners will look at a few different factors in determining discipline (if necessary), which include, but not limited to, a players game pattern, game rhythm, final score, etc.
* If a game is out of hand early, these rules will still apply. There are plenty of different options for avoiding disciplinary action such as, benching / utilizing other weapons.

23. Strategically mixing up your Offense and Defense is REQUIRED. Running the same defense throughout the game is NOT allowed. You CANNOT call the same play on OFFENSE MORE THAN THREE (3) TIMES in the SAME DRIVE. Same play means the SAME NAMED PLAY (no matter what formation). example Shotgun doubles weak flood is the same concept as single back doubles weak flood

:::::::::: EDITING PLAYERS ::::::::::
1. Editing players outside of the approved position changes are NOT ALLOWED. This is a SIM league and names like “It’s Going To Me” is NOT SIM. This INCLUDES names of current college prospects and/or your favorite NFL retired player.

Olivier Vernon (LOLB) change to LE
* Sending requests in the correct format only benefit an owner in the long run as it makes it easier for an Commissioner to make a quick, accurate decision.
5. TSG has noticed that players from last cycle have been changed to a different position. In that case:
* With prior approval from an Commissioner, an owner has the option of changing that player back to that position. This process cannot be undone and you only have the option to do so in YEAR 1, so please take that into consideration.
* For example, Olivier Vernon was a Defensive End last cycle, this cycle, he is a Linebacker. You have the option of changing him back to Defensive End or keeping him in the Linebacker position.
6. If an owner is in violation of illegal player position changes, the player will be returned to original position, will be dropped and the owner will face a one (1) game suspension.

This Madden we will be rewarding and penalizing Owners as well so its important to manage your team correctly.
1. ALL users MUST create a CUSTOM owner upon entering the league. If you do not create an owner, you will be REMOVED from the league. Creating an owner allows for everyone to start from an equal point, especially financially.
2. Custom Owners can either be a FORMER PLAYER, LIFELONG FAN, or FINANCIAL MOGUL.
3. Owners are NOT ALLOWED to RELOCATE an NFL Team in ANY season at ANY point. By not allowing this, it makes the league more attractive for others to join in the case an owner resigns or removed from the league.
4. Owners MUST maintain a 53-man roster that meets league requirements at all times, starting WEEK 1 of the REGULAR SEASON, NO EXCUSES.
* If your roster does not meet league rules you WILL NOT be able to process ANY trades and are subject to additional penalties.
5. You are ONLY allowed to CUT players who are 79 OVERALL and LOWER during season to make room for cap. Any player that is 80 OVERALL or HIGHER must be released during the OFFSEASON (Re-sign or Free Agency). This prevents collusion (secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy in order to cheat or deceive others) and allows for all teams to bid through Free Agency.
6. If an owner does illegally drop a player, that player will go on the "FA OFF-LIMITS" List. Disciplinary action will vary based on severity of violation.
7. Teams MUST maintain 53 players and not go over 15 million in cap penalty to recieve any reward PERIOD.
8. Player overalls will be determined by the leagues DADDY LEAGUES rating with NO EXCEPTIONS.
9. ALL SKILL POSITIONS (Quarterback, Running Back, Fullback, Wide Receiver and Tight End) Players must PLAY THEIR NATURAL POSITION
* For Example: You can not add a Running Back to the Wide Receiver position on the Depth Chart
10. ALL positions on Depth Chart must have the first TWO SPOTS filled with APPROVED players.
* For Example: Safeties must have 2 SAFETIES in first two spots on depth chart with the 3rd slot being filled by a CornerBack if you don't have an additional safety on the roster.
11. 3rd TE Slot may be a Tight End or Full Back ONLY (Wide Receiver or Half Back is PROHIBITED).
12. Full Back position may have a Tight End in the 2nd Slot.
13. Owners MUST have 2 Quarterbacks on your roster AT ALL TIMES including:
* a minimum of 2 RUNNING BACKS

* a minimum of 3 DEFENSIVE TACKLES
* a minimum of 3 MIDDLE LINEBACKERS
* a minimum of 8 OFFENSIVE LINEMEN TOTAL
* a minimum of 4 CORNERBACKS
14. You are NOT ALLOWED to cut players and then re-sign them to a cheap One (1) Year Contract during ANY season.

2. Big Contacts can be offered, but the EXCESSIVE and ABUSIVE Contracts are PROHIBITED.
3. You are allowed to change a players position AFTER 1 YEAR of being on your roster. This INCLUDES drafted players and players signed in free agency.
:::::::::: FREE AGENCY BIDDING RULES ::::::::::
1. If there is an EXISTING bid on a player, you can bid up to the same number of points of the leading bid. If you wish to INCREASE the bid, the increase MUST be a MINIMUM of 10 POINTS.
* For example: If Leonard Fournette has an existing bid of 50 points, you are allowed to bid 50 points or at least 60 points if you were looking to increase the bid.
2. Once a bid is REMOVED from a Free Agent, you are NO LONGER allowed to bid on that player. ANYONE found to be intentionally (excessively) running up bids to just “drop out," will be PENALIZED.
3. An owner is NOT ALLOWED to LOWER a bid once a bid has been submitted;
* For example: If you placed a bid on Leonard Fournette for 60 points and another user placed a bid at 75 points, you MUST keep your bid in consideration.
4. If an owner does not submit a FINAL BID on a SIGNED Free Agent, the owner of that team will have to RELEASE that player and have to deal with the CAP PENALTY. If the cap penalty is so excessive that the owner CANNOT get to the required 53-man roster, the cap will be cleared and the owner will FORFEIT their 2nd round draft pick in the upcoming draft and trade rights will be REVOKED until the following season when draft is complete.
5. If any owner places a bid on ANY free agent of 100 points or MORE, owner will be LOCKED in on that bid until the player SIGNS a contract. You are NOT allowed to remove yourself from the bid regardless of where you are on the points leader list.
6. During Free Agency, waiting until the last hour or 5 minutes is NO LONGER PERMITTED. If advance to the next stage is at 10 EST, all MAX bids are LOCKED at 9 EST.

If you did NOT have a bid on an existing player, you are NOT ALLOWED to come in and place a matching bid.
7. Free Agency / Bids will now be monitored and divided amongst all Commissioners in TSG by Conferences. All owners will be contacted by their FREE AGENCY COORDINATOR before Free Agency Opens. This is where you will send all placed bids. Breakdown is as follows and subject to change:
Jay Killa VII

3. Practice Squad stealing is ALLOWED starting Week 1 of the regular season. (Will be turned OFF until Week 1)

Owners will have a total of 3 trades each full season.
To make things as simplistic as possible while still being fair all trades will go through DADDYLEAGUES trade system. Settings have been adjusted to accommodate the draft values. You must send all trade screenshots from daddy league to a commissioner first for approval before sending through xbox. Commissioners will evaluate the trade and reply with an approval or dis approval with reasoning.
Players CANNOT be traded TWICE in ANY one season.
When approving trades player for player, League Commissioner evaluates a player’s overall TRADE VALUE at their position based on TSG
League Commissioner will simply respond with an ACCEPTED or DENIED screenshot along with a simple explanation if necessary. It will NOT go beyond that regarding a response as the owner CANNOT argue or debate a decision made.
If an owner trades a next year 1st round pick to gain an additional pick in the current draft, the owner CANNOT trade for ANOTHER 1st round pick in next years draft.
If an owner trades a next year 1st round pick, then in the next year, the owner is required to SIT OUT the first round.
* For example: It is the 2018 Draft, you trade your 2019 1st round draft pick for an additional 2018 draft pick. You WILL NOT be allowed to trade for a 1st round draft pick in the 2019 draft.
