First and foremost congratulations to Coach BigReg on his substitute 28-21 Super Bowl victory over Pettigrew's Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday. This superbowl victory is obviously not going to count for Big Reg but it will count for the franchise of the MOF Vikings.
With that said, we are ready to move forward! The staff has made some rule changes that i wanted to go through before we released the timeline of off-season events. If you guys have any questions on the rules, please let us know. I will briefly go through it here so i suggest to go to the rulebook and take a look at the changed rules.
We are moving the skill level back to All-Madden.
We are moving ALL edited sliders back to the original default position (Except Injury sliders, they will stay at 23)
The following positions may be moved without Admin Approval. These players will be playing the SAME POSITION, but playing the opposite side. SS & FS: LOLB, MLB & ROLB: RE, DT, LE & All offensive lineman can be moved to any of the offensive line positions
All SKILL (QB, RB, FB, TE, WR) Players must PLAY THEIR NATURAL POSITION. For example: You can not add RB to the WR position, TE to the WR position on the Depth Chart, etc.- Package formations are okay- ALL positions on Depth Chart must have first TWO SPOTS filled with APPROVED players. For example Safeties must have 2 SAFETIES in first two spots on depth chart & the 3rd can be filled by CB if you don't have the additional safety on Roster.. - The 3rd TE Spot may be a TE, FB, or OLINE only; No WR or HB- The FB position may have a TE at the 2nd spot
You cannot come out in a 4th down situation to get the defense to jump offside if the situation is against the 4th down rules. For example, 4th and 4 on your own 13 yard line in the 2nd quarter score 0-0. You still have to abide by the 4th down rules if you want to try and get the defense to jump offside
Home team decides the uniforms. If home team wears solid color, away team MUST wear white or grey. Show your uniform at the team selection screen. The NFL rulebook states that the home team gets to decide which jersey it will wear, and because most home teams choose to wear darker uniforms with their primary team colors on it at home, it is standard for the away teams to wear white or gray on the road so that the two teams can be easily distinguished by the players, referees, and fans. Thus, teams must have "away" colors, which are generally white or gray with the primary team colors only being used to mark the numbers on the front and back of the jersey. If the home team wears a white jersey, like the Dallas Cowboys do, then the away team must wear its darker team-colored jersey on the road so that there is a contrast between the two teams on the field.Snow Rule - *In addition , if you are set to wear White jerseys, make sure you wear color pants. This is to combat the effect of a snowy game and your players blending in with the field.*
To keep names from getting out of hand & keep some form of realism, you may NOT change names of players (real players & incoming rookies). You may not change a QB throwing motion, style, or throwing hand
That is lengthy but a brief synopsis of our rule changes in the up coming season. We will also include the rule changes in every single newsletter, the changes will be on the main page of the website and daddy leagues as well. To check out the updated rules please visit www.mofleagues.com/rules.htm
