The Official Unsportsmanlike Football Rules
To start up a franchise, each team owner must contribute $20 to the league.
The first place team will be awarded 60% of the pot, the second place team will
be awarded 25% of the pot, and the third place team will be awarded 15% of the pot.
The season consists of 17 games. Each week teams play head-to-head matches
with other teams in the league. The team that accumulates more fantasy points
gets a win, and of course the team with fewer fantasy points gets a loss. Ties
will be allowed. The team with the best record at the end of the season is the
winner of the league; there will not be playoffs.
A team consists of a total of 16 roster sports; 8 starters and 8 reserves.
The starting 8 positions are:
The draft order for the first round will be determined randomly, but the second
round will be conducted in the reverse order of the first round. The order in the
subsequent rounds will be continually reversed at the end of each round. Therefore,
in a three team league, the order would be as follows: Round 1: 1st pick: Team 1,
2nd pick: Team 2, 3rd pick: Team 3Round 2: 4th pick: Team 3, 5th pick: Team 2,
6th pick: Team 1Round 3: 7th pick: Team 1, 8th pick: Team 2, 9th pick: Team 3 Each
team will be awarded one selection per round and will draft in the order determined,
selecting real-life NFL players that have not previously been selected by any other
team in the league. The draft consists of sixteen rounds, enabling team owners to
fill their 16-man roster.
The draft will begin on August 12 at 8:00AM PST and conclude on September 4 at
11:00PM PST. Each day, two-thirds of a round of drafting will take place. One third
will be drafting from 12AM-4PM; another third will draft from 4PM-12AM. Selections
must be emailed to the alias at email@example.com. If you fail to make your
pick at your appointed time, we will continually skip over ALL your picks until you
decide to make your picks. This rule will be strictly enforced! For example, a team
has the last pick on Tuesday and the first pick on Wednesday. If Wednesday comes along,
and that person has not made his Tuesday pick, we will skip over BOTH the Tuesday and
Teams may not exceed the roster limit, but players can be waived to make room for
the signing of a free agent. All unsigned players are considered free agents, but only
those that are on NFL rosters can be claimed by a team. Priority is initially determined
by the reverse order of the 1st round draft. But once a team signs a free agent, that
team is given the least priority. For example, if Team X had the 10th pick in a 10-team
league, Team X would have the highest priority for free agent signings. But once Team X
signs a free agent, Team X would given the least priority and all the other teams would
move up one spot. If a team wishes to sign a free agent, the team owner must notify all the
other teams in the league with an email message to the UFL alias. Please date and time-stamp
the message. Other teams are given 48 hours to object to the request. Teams can only
object by attempting to sign the free agent.
All trades must be approved by the commissioner. This will prevent lopsided trades that
benefit only one team. In addition, all players must pass a physical before the trade will
be approved. A trade can be nullified if any players involved in the trade misses his next
game due to injury.
Changes to the starting lineup must be sent and time-stamped atleast a half an hour
prior to the start of the first game of each week.
All transaction are subject to review by the commissioner. If a team owner quits at any
time, the team will be frozen, and none of the players on that team will be available for
