    League Info/House Rules

    GENERAL INFORMATION
    Player Pool: Fictional, FOF-generated
    Teams: NFL Default
    Cities and Fan Loyalty: Equalized
    Cohesion/Chemistry: On
    League Name: GM League (GML)
    Web Site: http://www.gml.fof-belco.com
    Injury Setting: 0
    Cap Increase Range: 0 to 99
    Combine Accuracy: 50

    League ran on FOF2K7 from 2010-2016 and FOF7 from 2017-Present

    HOUSE RULES
    • No franchise tag.
    • No LB may be position-switched more than once in any given season.
    • Take no more than 70 players to Training Camp.
    • Each team must be under the league salary cap at the conclusion of FA1:12, and again by the end of the Preseason. Failure to do so will result in league mandated cuts and a possible loss of draft pick(s). Teams are allowed to be over the cap at other times in the offseason, preseason, and regular season.
    • AI-Run teams are not subject to these House Rules.
    • No moving franchises. We want to stick with the 32 NFL cities as they are.
    • Rookies drafted by your team may be traded at any point from the draft through the trade deadline.


    COMPETITIVENESS
    All owners are expected to make a good-faith effort to compete. "Tanking" (putting forth little/no effort to win) to improve draft position is a no-no. Generally speaking, unless there's a promising backup who could use development, teams are expected to start their best players. The following actions are always considered acceptable and not in violation:

    • A player injured to any degree may be benched until fully healed.
    • When a team has clinched a playoff berth, that team may rest its starters if it so chooses.

    Beyond the above, whether a team is in violation of this clause is up to the sole discretion of the League Administration, so if you're in doubt about a course of action, please ask before you undertake it. Penalties for being in violation of this clause may include loss of draft picks, being dropped down in the draft order, or any other penalty deemed fit by the League Administration, up to and including expulsion from the league.

    NOT HOUSE RULES
    The catch-all is "if it's allowed in FOF and not specifically forbidden above, then it's allowed in the GML." So, the following are not house rules, but I want to be clear that these standard FOF rules are in place.

    • Sign and trade is illegal, as per FOF rules, other than the exception mentioned above for current-year draftees after the draft.
    • All renegotiations are allowed, as per FOF rules.
    • You can't trade a draft pick that doesn't exist yet in the game.

    Did we set a rule for a minimum RB rating to be on the field?

    it seems there wont be a formal rule about it

    but i think its reasonable to expect everyone to field the best team possible. if you have an 11/11 rb starting, and there's a 35/35 rb in fa, it seems to me that 35/35 should be signed.

    That works for me. I wasn't planning on drafting one for a while so needed to decide if I had to change the plan or risk being left with the scrubs who don't meet the minimum

    Not sure if I missed this in the rules somewhere...am I correct that depth charts are set by team owners or is this something else that is changed by the AI after exports are done?

    You control the depth charts, playing time, and what personnel are in which formation. AI sets all game plans.

    Is our injury setting still 125?

    We might want to revisit that with another poll.

    i dont feel like injuries have been too bad. i barely even notice them in this league, to be honest. i dont see a reason to change.

    I believe it is a discussion worth revisiting in FOF7.
