welcome to the home group of Belgian Fumbbl Players!
In a continuing effort to gather more Belgian players, I've taken another go here at fumbbl to set up a Belgian League. This is intended as a a meeting place for Belgian online players, and to give them the opportunity of playing in a single Belgian league.
Rules and Information
The BBBF Online League will always aim at short and decent paced leagues. So should we ever reach a high number of coaches, we'll start working with divisions. Furthermore, deadlines will be set in stone and take max 2 weeks.
Depending on the number of coaches registring, season 1 will most likely be a "single round robin league" (meaning everybody gets to play everybody once, in a fixed order). Later seasons may have divisions departing from the results in this first season.
We stick to NAF-approved teams for the league.
I do have the plan to set up a tournament from time to time, but how and when will have to be seen. For example with Eurobowl coming up, I'd like to create a eurobowl-rules-setting for training games.
Scoring and tiebreaking
Scoring points are 3/1/0 (W/D/L), and ties broken by head to head result, then net TDs + net CAS, TDs scored, CAS scored, coin toss (in that order).
The secret to successful online leagues is getting games played. You might have a fortnight, but if you leave it a week and assume it’ll happen, it won’t. People have real lives. Schedule games ASAP, even if it’s a week or more away. I will forfeit games on deadline without hesitation. Whilst it might seem harsh, if we begin to wait for coaches we know to ‘be cool’, the whole thing loses momentum and ultimately dies. That pressure to get it played needs to be there. Phone, text, e-mail, make an effort early! I'll set up a Whatsapp-group as well.
