Rules and Information

Main League - Season VII: Structure

The Audi Bowl main league will, in future, follow a fixed, three division structure where everyone plays everyone once (8 teams per division, 7 game seasons). The winner of the Premier Division will be our champion, and the bottom 3 will be relegated to the Championship (to be replaced by the top 3 teams in the Championship). The fourth bottom team will be forced to defend their Premier division status in a one game Playoff with the fourth placed Championship side (Overtime to be played in the event of a tie).

The winner of the Championship will take home the Audi Plate trophy, and the bottom 4 teams will be relegated, replaced by the top 4 teams in the Conference. The Conference winners will win the Audi Shield trophy.

For one season only, Season VII, an influx of European friends causes us to change our structure. The top team in the Premier division will be the Audi Champions, and the bottom four will be relegated to the Championship (no playoff). The second tier will be formed by two Conferences. The top two teams from each Conference will be promoted to the Premier Division for Season VIII, the third and fourth placed teams the Championship, and the bottom four the Conference.

Restarting / Dropouts

Clearly, having a team decimated is no fun. If you should have a side decimated, leave, or simply wish to start again with a new team, you will have two options:

1) Replace the team on the spot with a one win administration fee (lose 2 points)

2) Replace the team between seasons and join the Championship with your rookies. If you were in to be in the Premiership, the playoff would be removed and the league simply filled up as position dictates. Teams will always be promoted rather than otherwise relegated sides retaining their spots due to dropouts. Please don’t just bugger off mid-season, it mucks everything up! If someone does, all opponents over the course of the season are rewarded with wins, regardless of real results.

Scoring and Tie Breakers

Scoring points are 2/1/0 (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).

TV Caps

Clearly, restarting or new coaches with new teams are not going to enjoy joining a Conference full of 2 million TV mega teams. There will be a cap of 1500 TW to control the size of Conference teams (before a ball is kicked, thereafter anything goes) such that new joiners and restarters don’t just get humped. The Championship cap will be 1850.

Playing games

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!

There have been a couple of S1 games played whilst Skyping. Mark loves a bit of this, and it’s a grand excuse to look at his beautiful face. If you are a Skyper, I encourage this behaviour. It’d be a new experience for me, but I intend to try. With Mark. Mmm.

FORZA AUDI.

Deadlines: A game every two weeks.

Dos and don'ts:

Do play if you join up. No-one likes a flake.
Do use the scheduler tool to lock your games in. That way we can all come watch and boo.
Don't hesitate to ask me (Goo) questions on how to use things.
