Summer Football League (PASFL)
Paydirt "Action" Summer Football League (PASFL) is a
computer football league that uses Action! PC Football (APCFB)
by DKS to play all of its games. Teams will play home games
in the current home stadium with each stadium having a 3 pt
home field advantage. No home field advantage will be
awarded for the Super Bowl
Rosters/ Salary Cap
may have no less and no more than 52 active players at the
beginning of the season prior to injuries. In addition to
that, you may designate 2 taxi/practice squad players who
will not be eligible to play during the season and will not
count toward your salary. If you have a player or players
designated on the taxi/practice squad then your team could
expand to 54. The current salary cap is 121,000,000
Squad - Each team may have up to two players on an inactive
taxi squad. To be eligible, the player must have played in 5
or less regular season NFL games. Once a player is named to
the taxi squad, he cannot be used the entire season, nor
traded. Their salary becomes zero and marked inactive.
Squad designation will not be available for Season 1.
must be at the 54/52 player limit, usage limits and salary
cap by the end of the Drops deadline and a team may not
conduct any trade until the team is at or below the salary
cap. Drops are allowed during a trade to make
this possible as well. Teams must also be at the cap/54/52
limit before the FA/Rookie draft takes place in order to
participate in the draft. Teams must also have
available cap space to fill out their roster with at least
350K players during the FA/Rookie Draft and Legal Roster
It is possible for a team to fulfill the above mandates and
still not be in compliance. That team must be in complete
compliance prior to the start of the regular season or the
league will intervene and amend. For example, a team might
have 52 active players on their roster, be below the salary
cap, and be within use limitations but might not have
fulfilled all the minimum positional mandates such the
league requirement of 8 Dbs, 4 corner-backs, and 3 safeties.
Each team must meet league mandates before the start of the

Using the League Email group
Avoid using the group for personal emails such as working
out a trade detail with another team. You may use it to
announce players up for trade.
SIGNING A FA DURING THE SEASON
may be signed during the season if injuries or trades leave
you unable to properly field the needed players for a game
at a specific position. If that is the case you may claim a
FA player from the FA pool. If the FA addition takes you
over the 54/52 roster or salary cap limit you must drop a
player to stay legal. This dropped player will not be
returned to your roster. Any free agent signed
after the week one file is released will be labeled as a
ďFree Agent Signed In-SeasonĒ and will have an FAI
designation on the league file. All FAI
designated players MUST be returned to the free agent pool
at the conclusion of the regular season, therefore, no FAI
players will be eligible for the post-season.
Trading is allowed in the PASFL with the following
trade deadline is Week # 4. This means the time period up
and until all week 4 games are played but before the week 5
file is issued during the regular season. No trades may be
made after the Week # 5 file has been sent out.
draft picks beyond the next draft may be traded. You may
begin trading the following years draft's picks when the
current year's draft has officially concluded.
proposed trade can be rejected by the commissioner if he
feels the trade was not done in good faith. Any
player traded by a team may not be re-acquired until a full
season has passed. Teams can submit an explanation as to why
they feel a rejected trade makes sense. A decision to reject
may be reversed if the commissioner feels the explanation
reveals a valid reason for reversal.
trades must be finalized in the "Finalized trade forum" so
we can keep track of all trade info. One team involved in
the trade must post in that forum with the exact details of
the trade. The other team must confirm the trade in that
trade's forum post. No trade will take effect until both
parties have agreed. Do not send your trades via the league

may sign one from the FA list however, this added FA will
also have the FAI designation, must keep the team below the
salary cap, and he will be cut at the end of the regular
3 division winners, plus the 3 non division winners with the
best records (the Wild Cards) in each conference will

be bracketed using the method that the NFL currently uses.

and will get the HFA except for the Super Bowl. The Super

their own division twice (once at home and once on the

format. The PASFL is a Summer league playing
from June until October.
GAME PLAYING PROCEDURES

games or they will be removed from the league.
accepted way of scheduling your game each week is via the
league's Game Scheduling Forum. This way the Commissioner
can clearly see who is properly scheduling their games or
not in case of dispute. He can also foresee a problem before
it becomes an issue and has to issue a simmed game. The home
team is responsible for posting first and must post by no
later than Thursday at 6PM ET of each week giving a variety
of times when you can play the games, although you can and
are encouraged to post sooner. Each visiting team must reply
to the home team's forum post and either choose one of those
times or announce he cannot meet any of those times and make
new suggestions by Friday. All Games must be completed and
reported to the Commissioner before Tuesday at 11PM ET.
(Exception to the forum scheduling is if you cannot gain
access to the forums for some reason. In that case, you must
privately email your opponent with a CC to the
