45 PT LIMIT -No more than 500 yard passing limit and a 250-yard rushing/receiving limit and if the quarterback/HB/WR exceeds Five touchdowns the owner will be sanctioned. No more than 5 Sacks per player ON D VS CPU

*Each Owner is allowed 3 Trades per season

*Rage Quitting or conceding a match will result in removal from the league. If you quit a game you lose the right to complain. If your opponent is abusing the rules and you supply proof then a commissioner will then give you permission to abort a game. That's the only legal way to abort a game

DISCONNECTIONS
If there's a disconnection during a game, you and your opponent will try to continue the game from the point of disconnection. If the two of you can agree to what score, quarter, time, and field position the game needs to be continued from; please continue the game from that point. IF THE TEAMS CAN NOT AGREE, A Commissioner WILL SET THE TERMS. IN THE CASE OF A Commissioner BEING INVOLVED, A different Commissioner WILL SET THE TERMS. IN CASE OF A BLOWOUT THE LOSING TEAM HAS THE OPTION TO CONTINUE OR NOT. Commissioner RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DECLARE A WINNER OF A CLEAR BLOWOUT. 

IF YOU HAVE A GAME VS THE CPU -games are designed for the owner not on autopilot to win so if you have to start over 30 times then do so as long as you get the win. I want the owner that's on autopilot to receive a loss. Lastly if winning BIG vs an opponent call the dogs off if up big (if your opponent wants to continue to call timeouts when the game is obviously over, then he gets what he deserves) running up the score is a violation. Please utilize the kneel option like the NFL

OFFSEASON- In free agency it is illegal to bid 10 million dollars over the fair asking price. For example if the player is asking for 28 million then your offer cannot exceed 38 million.

*THE FINAL FOUR (AFC/NFC CHAMPIONSHIP PARTICIPANTS) CANNOT BID/Trade ON ANY 90 OVR AND ABOVE PLAYERS IN FREE AGENCY. THIS IS TO HELP BALANCE THE LEAGUE

FELLOW COMMISSIONERS- If you have your own league more power to you but if caught recruiting players from DOB or advertising your league in DOB you will be removed. I would never advertise my league in your league. This is disrespectful.
