THE NBFL TEAMS
- The NBFL has 32 teams, split into 2 conferences (AFC and NFC) of 16 teams. Each conference consists of 4 divisions (East, North, South, West).
- Each team in a division must be a different race.
- Each conference may only have two teams of a given race.
- The whole league may only have three teams of a given race.

- Each team is awarded at least one draft pick per season. Draftees are actual
For many years the NBFL has received Blessings from many Gods and other powerful beings. Nuffle has given us many great games throughout the years as well as headaches and fits of rage. Khorne has enjoyed the Bloodshed that we have caused in his name so much so that a few seasons back he sent some of his Daemons to play with us. A hearty and healthy annual donation (ever wondered what happens to those players that enter the draft but never get drafted? Why they just seem to disappear?) to the followers of Tzeentch has helped to build the relations with a Lord of Change (Greater Daemon of Tzeentch) by the name of Beek Roaz’El to help us transform our draftees to better fit with their new teammates and fan bases.
And then there is the Green Ball Attackers #1 fan, All Powerful Slann archmage, Xerl'E-Llambo. Who for many years has performed a ritual on all incoming injured NCBB players to heal all injuries.
When the GB franchise opted to replace his beloved Attackers with Apes, Xerl'E-Llambo was devastated, but he assumed, or possibly moreso hoped, that within a season or 2 after the embarrassment of constant Ape failures,the Ball Attackers would return. However, the Grabbers just made it to the Super Bowl, the Slann archmage has come to terms with the fact that the NBFL has literally trashed his team, and therefore decided that he wants nothing to do with the league anymore. Not only has he withdrawn his services, but he has also publicly placed a curse on the league, stating that if anyone attempts to replace him and assist the league in the same capacity, "Shall have a plague placed upon their family. All members present and future have their tongues shrink to 1 inch long and shall 13 generations of their future tadpoles never grow their legs."
At this time, the NBFL is unable to find a replacement for Xerl'E-Llambo. So for the foreseeable future any and all players with permanent injuries (-MA,-ST, -AG, -AV, niggling injuries) will not be permitted into the NBFL draft.
that come from the NCBB league
or previous (but retired) NBFL teams.
- Draft pick order is determined by reverse order of previous season finish. Note: Forfeit losses count as wins for determining draft order.
- Expansion teams will be granted extra draft picks. There is a seperate expansion draft board which is split into different pools to guarantee new teams have high quality players and compete with existing teams.
- Expansion draft order will be assigned by d1000
- Compensation draft picks will be awarded by Arcayn based on some formula related to your current roster.
- Any team may try to trade draft picks. However, expansion draft picks may only be traded for other expansion draft picks, and standard draft picks may only be traded for other standard draft picks, even if an expansion teams is getting picks from both draft boards.
Transition to 2020 and BETWEEN SEASON ROSTER MANAGEMENT
2016 teams converting to a 2020 team for season 29 will have a tv cap of 2800 and a minimum tv of 1900 and a minimum of 13 players
after the draft and when the team is readied for game 1 of the season. These limits will be enforced for the start of each season moving forward, but not during the season.
At the start of each season under 2020 rules, the following teams will redraft:
All 2016 teams converting to a 2020 team for season 29
A 2020 team that is continuing into season 30 or beyond
NBFL Player Draft: The NBFL Player Draft occurs prior to the redraft
For the NBFL Player Draft, new positional categories for each team can be found on the draft spreadsheet.
All players with less than 7 spp at the start of each season will be given enough spp to bring them up to 7 spp . If these spp are used to gain skills (chosen or random), the player must be on the roster for game 1.
Each team will redraft per the 2020 redraft rules.
The redraft cap will be 2800tv (this includes players from the NBFL Player Draft, and the skills rookies get with their free spp), which is not modified by games played, team treasury, or anything else.
There is also a minimum redraft value of 1900tv (including the NBFL Player Draft, and the skills rookies get with their free spp).
Each team must have at least 13 rostered players for the start of game 1 of each season (this includes players from the redraft and players from the NBFL Player Draft).
Agent Fees: There will be no agent fees for converting to season 29. At the end of season 29, all players will be assumed to have played 1 season for purposes of Agent Fees. After season 29, coaches should expect agent fees of 10k per season played, but a league vote could do away with them or increase them to 20k.
New teams starting in season 29 or beyond will be created with as much gold as they need and using 2020 team creation rules.
New teams cannot have a team value of more than 2800tv (including the NBFL Player Draft, and the skills rookies get with their free spp) at the start of game 1.
New teams must have a team value of at least 1900tv (including the NBFL Player Draft, and the skills rookies get with their free spp) at the start of game 1.
New teams must have at least 13 rostered players for the start of game 1 of the season (this includes players from creation and players from the NBFL Player Draft).
Everyone will start season 29 with 3 dedicated fans. For seasons 30 and beyond, all teams will start with whatever dedicated fans they had the previous season, or 3 dedicated fans, whichever is higher.
Treasury will be provided to redraft or create your team any way you choose, but set to 50k for each team to start the season regardless of starting team value. This 50k does not count towards the 2800tv cap.
For teams converting from 2016 to 2020, all 2016 positionals will move to their new 2020 positional equivalent and “acquire” any new skills or changes to stats. This may also move some skills from “normal/primary” to “secondary” (sorry Renegade teams.) Note that some positionals have changed price, and some teams have new prices for team re-rolls.
Any new 2020 positionals must be hired or drafted.
All skills obtained under 2016 rules are priced as chosen skills
- either a chosen primary if they could be chosen by the player as a primary skill under 2020 rules, or a chosen secondary if they could be chosen by the player as a secondary skill under 2020 rules.
Any skill obtained in 2016, which is no longer allowed in 2020 (ie Leader on a player that no longer has P access) will be transfered as a legacy skill
and cost as a chosen secondary skill.
The following skills will be updated to the 2020 equivalent:
Kick-off Return converts to On the Ball.
Pass Block converts to On the Ball.
Piling On converts to Pile Driver.
Accurate converts to either Accurate or Cannoneer (coaches choice)
Strong Arm converts to Cannoneer if the player does not have Throw-Teammate
Strong Arm stays the same if the player does have Throw-Teammate
Safe Throw converts to Safe Pass or Cloudburster (coaches choice)
All stats obtained under 2016 rules, will be priced based on the 2020 cost.
Any Stat increase above new limits will be replaced with one chosen primary or secondary skill (coaches choice).
Any Ag+ can be converted to either PA+ or AG+ (coaches choice)
All transitioning players unspent spp will be set so the spp needed from the next skill up under 2016 rules will be the spp needed to the next chosen primary skill (if you were 10 points away, you’ll be 10 points away), to a minimum of 0 unspent spp.
Players converting from 2016 to 2020 will use the following rule to determine how many spp they start with in 2020:
Subtract the players 2016 spp from the number of spp needed to reach the next skill in 2016. (The difference)
Subtract the difference from the number of spp needed for them to purchase their next skill as a chosen primary in 2020. (The total)
The total is the number of spp the player will start with in 2020.
Example: If the player has 59 spp in 2016 (and therefore 4 skills), then they need 76 spp for their next skill. 76-59 = 17. Therefore the difference is 17.
The number of spp needed to purchase a 5th skill as a chosen primary in 2020 is 20. 20-17 = 3.
Therefore, the player will start with 3 spp in 2020.
