A FA DURING THE SEASON
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.

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
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 group email.

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
3 division winners, plus the 3 non division winners with the best records
(the Wild Cards) in each conference will qualify for the playoffs. Teams will
be seeded 1-6 and will be bracketed using the method that the NFL currently
uses. The higher seeded team for each playoff game will be at home and will
get the HFA except for the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl will be played at a
neutral site and the HFA will be turned off.
stats will be carried over into the post season. Instead of getting a clean
"fatigue" slate for the playoffs, a 10% increase in season fatigue
would be added for each additional round of the playoffs. Playoff games will
be added on to the schedule instead of using the playoff brackets.
rookie/FA draft will vary in length depending on how many players each team
protected. The available players will be any available from the APCFB game.
maximum amount of players each team may protect before the draft begins will
be 30 players, however, each team may protect fewer than 30.

to play their game a particular week. Please let your opponent know ASAP if
you will not be able to play them head-to-head in a particular week. (Failure
to do so more than twice per season is reason for dismissal).

particular week. If you plan on using a substitute coach please clear it with
your opponent and commissioner beforehand. Only other members of the PASFL

will be removed from the league for this reason without a written warning

control. That's not what this is referring to.
teams will play a 16 game (8 at home & 8 on the road) regular season
schedule. Teams will play all other teams in their own division twice (once

requirements of contacting fellow owners for 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 Commissioner).
Please DO NOT use the league group email to schedule games or chat with
another owner. Keep those e-mails private.
†In cases where a transaction is caught in
time to reverse, the transaction that caused the infraction is reversed and
offending player loses his "latest" round pick in the upcoming
draft. *(if your latest pick has been traded, the next to latest will be
forfeited). If reversing the deal harms the unoffending party because of
other trades conducted based on this one, the carded player is suspended for
the season and counts toward the team's salary cap and 54/52 limits and loss
of latest draft* pick in upcoming rookie draft.† The suspended player is also frozen on the
roster and may not be traded or released until after the season is completed.
