What's up coaches!

We are officially a week away from the release of Madden '18! Which means MOF Season 42 is right around the corner! I wanted to lay out a timeline of events so everyone is on the same page if any questions arise:

  • August 22, 2017 - Madden '18 released 


  • Friday, September 1, 2017: 5pm EST - Last day we will be accepting lottery ball purchases, more on this below:


  • Friday, September 1, 2017: 8pm EST - We will be starting the MOF Draft for teams. I plan on broadcasting the lottery online, through YouTube by sharing my computer screen. I will send everyone the link through GroupMe. 


  • Saturday, September 2, 2017: We will create the CFM and invite everyone in to grab their team. We will then conduct our free-agent draft. Explanation of that is in the rulebook, but basically we will pick up 1 free-agent through a draft. The order will go reverse order of the team draft. So 32nd pick will pick 1st in the FA draft. 


  • After the free-agent draft, you will be allowed to make 3 trades because the first season of a new game counts as the pre-season. The trading period stays open until Week 1 begins of the regular season. You must have an active roster size of 53 (not including practice squad) by the time we start the regular season. So you are allowed to pick up guys to fill your roster, you CANNOT intentionally drop guys and pick up guys. 


  • Thursday, September 7, 2017: 8pm EST - MOF Season 42 kicks off! By then we will have a finalized Rulebook for Season 42, we will have our predictions, power rankings, and expert picks up. Also our radio show will be making a comeback!! 


  • The MOF Hall of Fame voting is set to close on September 1st as well. Please cast your votes if you have not already for the deserving coaches, remember you can vote for more than one!

The draft will be different this year we will be doing a lottery system. Which means every coach gets a certain amount of chances at the #1 pick. The coaches that did not make the playoffs last season will get the most chances, the coaches that made the playoffs more often will get less chances, and so on. The explanation in the rulebook and below in our rule change overview box. If you have any questions please let me know. We will be accepting lottery ball purchases NOW!! So you can purchase more chances from now until the day of the draft. You can view the number of every coaches lottery balls on this sheet here: 

Again, any questions let me know! You may purchase more lottery chances now.

*Please note i will be sending out newsletters on Mondays and Thursdays before we advance if there are games that have not been played during the current week and they require suspensions they will be pushed to the following week*

Below are the rules that have been changed for the upcoming season, be sure to know them! 

Below are the rules that have been changed for the upcoming season, be sure to know them! 


2.1.5 - Playbooks
 - You are no longer allowed to use Custom Playbooks. You must use a NFL stock playbook from the game itself. You are allowed to use any NFL stock playbook however we will be banning the following playbooks based on the fact that they do not have enough formations:

  • Run N' Shoot

  • Pistol

In addition you MUST show your opponent your playbook before your game starts. This way we can confirm you are not using a custom and using a stock PB that is not banned.


2.2.2 - When faced with a 4th down situation, you should be kicking the majority of the time. Our 4th down rules are more relaxed than most leagues, but that doesn't mean you can abuse these rules. That being said, these are our 4th Down Rules:

You are ONLY allowed To Go For 4th Down In These Situations:

  • 4th and 1 or less on your opponents side of the field at any point in the game.

  • Situations when it's 4th and 2 or less inside the opponents 40 to 30, where the wind is making it difficult to kick a field goal

    • Wind factor, if it's too windy to kick a FG (8 mph or higher and direction cannot be at your back)

    • IF this situation comes to fruition, you MUST pause the game. Tell the chat room that you are going for a 4th and 2 or less inside your opponents 40-30 because of Wind factor.

  • When there is 5 seconds or less left in the 1st half and you are in throwing distance for a hail mary. (Only from your 40 to your opponents 40 yard lines).

  • Losing at any point in the 4th quarter.

  • Losing by 28 points or more at any time in the game


2.4.5 - You are ONLY allowed to use ONE fake kick per game (Punt, FG, XP). 


3.2.1 - If a coach deliberately makes moves that sends their team into "Cap Hell" and then quits or is removed, we will clear the cap penalties for the new coach coming in. This is the only reason we would clear cap penalties for anyone.


3.3.2 - Position Changing

You may NOT put any players other than K at the Kicker position
You may NOT put any players other than P at the Punter position


14.1.1 - Every new release of Madden we will conduct a draft for your team for the upcoming CFM.
14.1.2 - The draft will be conducted through a lottery system using: http://www.draftpicklottery.com explained below
14.1.3 - You will have 2 hours once the clock has started, to make your selection. You can make your selection via text, email, forum pm, or groupme. If you feel like you might miss your deadline, you can always send me your top teams that you would like via email, groupme, or text message. (We will not count the hours from 12am-8am EST)
14.1.4 - If you miss your selection, you have until the end of the draft to make your pick at anytime.
14.1.5 - We will position you in 8 groups:

  • 1st group - Veterans that did not make playoffs all of previous edition of Madden

  • 2nd group - Veterans that made playoffs less than 50% of previous edition of Madden

  • 3rd group - Veterans that made playoffs 50%-99% of previous edition of Madden

  • 4th group - Veterans that made playoffs 100% or more of previous edition of Madden

  • 5th group - Veterans that did not play all seasons in previous edition of Madden

  • 6th group - Rookies who played in previous edition (Rookie = any coach who has not played 16 regular season games in MOF)

  • 7th group - Returning veterans who did not play in MOF previous edition of Madden

  • 8th group - Rookies who never played in MOF before

14.1.6 - Inside each group, you will be sorted by ACTUAL regular season games played. Which means if you have any at fault sims or forfeits they will deduct against your "TOTAL ACTUAL GAMES PLAYED" for example if we play 4 seasons of an edition, there will be a total of 64 regular seasons games played. If you have 4 at fault sims/forfeits your total actual regular season games played will be 60. The higher the number, the higher your position. Ties will be broken by last seasons record (worser record = higher pick) then previous seasons points for (lesser points = higher pick).
14.1.7 - From there we will have a draft lottery. Depending on which number you fall into in your group, you will get a set number of chances to get the #1 pick. So if you are a rookie coming in, you will be in the 32nd position only receiving 1 ball. If you are in the first group, with the least amount of at fault sims, you will get the 1st position receiving 32 balls.
14.1.8 - You will be able to purchase balls through Venmo or GoFundMe with all proceeds going towards the league. It will act as a donation, and you can purchase 1 ball for $1.
GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/inh2ng
Venmo: https://venmo.com/?txn=pay&audience=friends&recipients=jdypko@gmail.com¬e=MOF Donation
14.1.9 - We will broadcast the lottery picks live on youtube for everyone to see!
