Welcome to the CBFL!

We are a BB7s league with CFL-fluff (canadian football league) using any roster available on FUMBBL. The "professional" league CBFL consists of 10 teams, any additional coaches play in "U-Sports-Bloodbowl".

Defending CBFL Champions: Slaaneshreal Clawyouits https://www.fumbbl.com/p/match?id=4089749

Teams must have CFL-pun-names. Team logos and bios are highly encouraged. Here are the CFL teams the league is based around:
West DivisionEast Division
BC Lions (British Columbia)
Calgary Stampeders
Edmonton Eskimo
Saskatchewan Roughriders
Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Toronto Argonauts
Montreal Alouettes
Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Ottawa Redblacks
Baltimore Stallions

The CBFL is comprised of 10 teams separated into East and West divisions. One round robin session will lead into an 8 team playoff. Teams will be ranked in each division by tournament points: 3 pts for win, 1 for draw, 0 for loss, -1 for unjustified forfeit (which at the same time counts as a win when looking for the teams who get to draft a NBFL reject).

Tiebreaker for division seeds works as follows:
1) head to head
2) highest Fan Factor
3) a D20 rolloff.

3 best teams of west and east enter. BUT with the crossover rule. So, if a 4th place is better than the 3rd place of the other division, he takes his playoff spot.
1st playoff round, "divisional round":
- Better 1st place vs. 2nd U-sports team
- Worse 1st place vs. 1st U-sports team
- 2nd vs. 3rd team WEST
- 2nd vs. 3rd team EAST
2nd playoff round, "divisional final":
- divisional final WEST
- divisional final EAST

3rd playoff round: "greycup". It's the grand finale.

2 seasons will be played per calendar year, unless the coaches decide otherwise.

U-Sports-Bloodbowl is our "feeder-division". At least 4 coaches are required to open a U-Sports division. U-Sports-Bloodbowl-teams must have pun names of canadian college football teams and amateur-football-teams. Their best 2 teams gets into playoffs. Whenever a coach of the CBFL quits, the oldest member of U-Sports-Bloodbowl will have the chance to fill the slot in the CBFL - he just carries his U-Sports team over to the CBFL and renames it with a pun-name of the franchise he is taking over.

- No CBFL-team can play games during offseason.
- MNGs will be cleared.
- NBFL rejects will be drafted.
- Coaches can drop out, swap races/franchises, new coaches may arrive with new races. The order of the race and franchise choices: The early bird gets the worm. The decision is up to draft commissioner MenonaLoco.

CBFL Rules:

A Minimum of 2 players must be place on the LOS.
The use of the Piling On skill costs a team-reroll.
2 cards will be provided to each team to help entertain the fans of every match.
A Wizard is available for inducement.
The Sneaky Git skill counts like Guard for fouling.
A player may either have MA10, or sprint, but not both.
4 players must be nominated for MVP.
Tied playoff games play overtime.

The "NBFL-rejects-rule": At the end of every season, any team of the West and the East division that misses out playoffs, gets to pick an injured player from the NBFL, that was cut from their roster during the current NBFL season, or the season before. The worst team picks first. It can not be a healthy player, it must be a perm'd one (an exception to this rule has to be approved by commissioner and draft commissioner). The NBFL-reject may play as any position in the CBFL. Illegal skills are replaced by a "normal" skill of the coaches choice (for example: a Chaos dwarf may be converted into a war dancer, trading claw against sidestep). Note: If a team misses the playoffs, but penalties from forfeits put them ahead of a playoff team in points, they lose the right to a reject.

How to get started in CBFL:

Case A:
Enter U-sports as a new team: Create a new team with 1000k via link on our group page.

Case B:
U-Sports-coach takes over an abandoned CBFL-franchise: Change U-sports-team's name to fit the city in the CBFL, no other changes.

Case C:
New coach replaces a coach who dropped, and "purchases" the existing franchise. He gets the exact same team with the same race, players, spp's etc. - he just has to invent a new pun name.

Case D:
Race swap: 1000k for team creation. The coach's new race gets as many skilled players as his former team, but with minimum spp's for the levels. For example, player A of the old race has 50 SPP, Player B of the new race then becomes a 31 SPP player with 3 fresh skill rolls.

"Farm Team" rules:
Sometimes dragging a trashed or hopeless team can be no fun at all. Whenever you feel you are in this situation, you can contact draft commissioner MenonaLoco and ask for permission for a race-swap at midseason (after 5 completed games).
("Trashed" means you are fielding loners and don't think you won't get out of this downward spiral any time soon. "Hopeless" means your team doesn't win any games, maybe managed one draw).
If the draft commissioner authorizes the race swap, it would be done as Case D, described in the previous paragraph.

1) Conditions: Team is a mess (no bench/many perms, low funds), coach asks for permission, commissioner sets a goal that has to be reached and gives permission.
2) Start: Coach publishes "Go-Fund-Me" and keeps track of donations during 1 week (wherever the coach wishes: discord, pm, forum). Coaches can donate rerolls, players (yes, also injured players), cash, staff. All donations will be cash (example: a donated 140k reroll = 70k cash, a donated 60k player with 2 normal skills = 100k cash). If the goal will not be reached, no donations are executed and there are no consequenses.
3) If the goal has been reached: After exactly one week, coach sends full list of donations to the commissioner, who executes all transactions.
4) Consequences:
Recieving coach:
- Must coach this rescued team for at least the next season (must not leave, nor swap race or city).
-Modify your team bio: You need a conmemorative plate there, that mentions all generous doners (coach's name and name of the CBFL/U-Sports franchise), who helped saving your team.
-Buy in this order, until you can't buy the next thing on the list. Rest goes to treassury.
I - Buy up to 9 players.
II - Replace permed players.
III - Buy 10th and 11th player.
IV - Buy up to 4 rerolls.
(Any of the new players will recieve the names of donated players and add respective player bios.)
- You can add a doner-badge to your team bio.
