Q/A for 100M Theme

A: No.

Q: Do the two teams have to be from the same season?
A: No

Q: Can we use 2 different years from the same franchise?
A: Yes.

Q: Can we use un-twisted players from the teams of choice, i.e., use the version of the player that appeared on that team?
A: Yes, you can use any version of the players from your two rosters, including that same season.

Q: For the $100M theme, do all players under 300k need to be untwisted?
A: You may use players from the two rosters and twist them to any season (including seasons with salaries under 300K). But if you are using players NOT from the two rosters, they must be from the same season of your two selected teams and MUST be under 300K.

Q: Your Description added W/L's with 2 losses more than wins (157 - 159) however, your also say cumulative wins must be within two of the cumulative losses.

With that in mind, is this kosher?
W = 159
L = 157

A: YES. THis is allowed. I had a hard time with the wording. Wins and Losses must be within +/- 2.
