Choose an exclusive franchise and draft players only from the current version of the team.  For example, if you take the Raiders, you can only use players from Oakland not Los Angeles.  Baltimore Ravens do not get to use Cleveland Browns players, and Tennessee Titans do not get to use Houston Oilers.

League Rules:
  • $80 million cap
  • Seasons used-TBD by your franchise.  No earlier than the AFL-NFL merger of 1970.
  • NO: Clones, WW, Trades
  • Select current stadium from your franchise.
  • Divisions aligned just like NFL
  • Standard playoff format.

No Brian Sipe with the Cleveland Browns?
No Earl Campbell with the Houston Oilers?
No Joe Namath with the New York Jets?
10/3/2013 2:19 PM
No Houston Oilers period!
10/3/2013 9:41 PM
Is it Joe Willie or Joe Wooley?.....I know how Cosell would say it, but I think that was just an accent....

I am curious about the ruling on Sipe....The Current Cleveland Browns are an expansion team...but....part of the negotiated deal to send Modell's team to Baltimore was that the team colors, team nickname and team history had to stay in Cleveland.

When I run the college football theme again, take San Diego St then you get to use Brian Sipe...:P

What I mean by modern franchise is the teams as they're currently established.  I'm strongly considering only allowing NFC seasons of the Seattle Seahawks!

You wont have to worry - this doesnt have any chance of filling.
10/4/2013 4:06 AM
What about the college football theme?  Should I run that again?
10/4/2013 11:27 AM
I would join a pro football franchise alumni league, but without the restrictions you put in, and go back to 1960.
