New owners this is the perfect league for you. While learning this game player evaluations are the toughest things to learn. Come learn this great game without being bombarded with bad trades that can set back your franchises for seasons.
Veteran owners if you want a league with no chat drama and use your skills building a team without trades, then this the league for you also.
With an emphasis on the Rule 5 draft, amateur draft, free agency, international free agency (IFA), and waiver wire pickups, owners are challenged to build their teams without the use of trades. I understand that disallowing trades may encourage two extreme strategies for building a team.
The first being tanking at the major league level and building through the draft/IFA, or, secondly, punting the draft/IFA and loading up solely on high-priced free agents. Realizing this, rules are set up to discourage owners from taking either extreme.
(If you just want the meat and potatoes, you'll want to start here...)
1) No trades - each team is responsible to veto any trade that goes through.
2) Minimum win rule (55/125/195/280) - each team must win 55 teams in any given season,125 in any two consecutive seasons, 195 in any three consecutive seasons, and 280 in any four consecutive seasons. Failure to meet any of these minimums will result in expulsion from the world.
2a) In order to give new owners 2 full off-seasons of free agent acquisitions to turn a team around, the league voted to remove the MWR for the first season each owner is in the league. The 2 year MWR will still be enforced using the owner's S1 and S2 win totals, and the 55 single season requirement is enforced from season 2 and beyond.
3) $110MM maximum player payroll. If you have a budget higher than $110MM, you will be notified to transfer money out of player payroll to either coaching or prospect payroll. Failing to do so within 7 days of notification will result in expulsion from the world.
