Hi guys, I just took over the Branch Rickey world and am doing all I can to make this the most enjoyable world I can. I have already asked all the guys who will be staying and going and since I have a few guys leaving I want to start a topic to get this world filled as fast as possible. If you join I guarantee I will do my best to make this the bestleague you have joined and keep it rolling so there will be no wait times for rollover. If you are interested in joining us this upcoming season let me know and I will make a list and then post the teams on this topic for you to see the open teams we have before joining. Most teams are just a few players away from a playoff run and there isnt that one team in this world that stands above the rest, it is a very competitive league and Im sure you all will love it. Here are the rules...
(1) If an owner loses more than 200 games in two straight seasons, they will be put on probation where they must win 72 games in the next season or be removed from the league.
(2) Your prospect budget cannot exceed $20M at any time. That means the most you can spend in one season on draft picks and international free agents is 20m. So you won't see that big IFA go for 25m. It adds more strategy for those owners that like to spend big $$ on IFA's.
(3) Teams must remain in their current city. Owners may change the team nickname.
Of course HBD fairplay rules will be enforced
1) This is a good rule for every world and we give a probation season to where if you lose 200 in two seasons in most leagues your out. If it looks like you are tanking on purpose by making bad trades or contracts the person will be removed before then.
2) Number 2 is the best rule a league could have so that way everyone is eligible to get that IFA everyone wants and not spend a buttload of money to get him.
3) sometimes everyone comes up with a better name then they currently have, we allow you to change your team name as long as you stay at your current city.
This will be a great world in a short time and I will do my all to make it that way. Sign up now to be a part of the Branch Rickey world.
Thank you all for your time.
