For Life- Season 11- One Opening Left Topic

World For Life is heading towards Season 11
This is a very unique and challenging world in that its intent is to have teams built from the ground up and have players remain with their franchise "For Life".
To that end, the league specific rules are as follows:

-- Team names: They must be the same as they have been from previous seasons and are all major league franchises (except one -- Charlotte, which is a minor league franchise as there weren't 32 to choose from.... actually two, but the other is the Montreal Expos, so a former ML franchise)
-- Free Agency: The intent of the league is for players to stay with their franchises "For Life" so there is no signing of Free Agents from other franchises until the "Open" Free Agent Period that will be set and put out by the Commisioner. Our "Open" Free Agent Period begins the day before the Rule V Draft (so at the end of the traditional Free Agency Period).
-- Trades: There are no trades allowed.
-- Waiver Wire: Waiver Claims are not allowed.
-- Released Players: Released players are "Fair Game" to be signed by anyone at any time. This includes Arbitration Eligible Players that are released. You can tell that a player has been released (as opposed to "Left Via Free Agency") by looking at the transaction page on his player card.
-- Rule V Draft: No Players may be taken in the Rule V Draft.
-- Prospect Payroll: There is no limit to what an owner may set or transfer into their prospect payroll.

You must be willing to agree that non-compliance with the set rules will result in your willing removal from the league, to be replaced by an owner willing to play by and respect the rules. There will also be no excuses tolerated for missing out on signing your own players in time, etc. The point here is that we're all adults. We shall play the game as such. Much like WiS policy, there will be no helping out in case of "user error".

Available Teams:
Philadelphia Phillies

I've played in several fine worlds in HBD.  They each had their own qualities and stating any one world was best would be difficult.  I can say with certainty that For Life is the most unique world I have ever played in...and one of the most enjoyable.  Read the league specific rules above and if they appeal to you, prepare to be in For Life for a long time.

The name isn't so hot, but this is a fun World. I would've named it Gehrig, but who cares what I think? Put your draft skills to the test and build a team from your farm system. There are still an abundance of FA's to fill out your team before rule 5 so you can hit the ground running if that's what you choose to do. kcden is a no nonsense commish and runs a tight ship. Join us already.
