Detailed League Rules
ScheduleEach Round has a 7 day period.
Each Round Starts on Wednesday. (That's US Wednesdays - Eastern time just to avoid confusion)
SchedulingPM your opponent and coordinate early. Even plan a week ahead if it helps.
ExtensionsI can and will grant extensions but on a individual basis and they don't stack. -The Commish
ForfeitsIf an effort is made by both coaches and it just doesn't work out you will be granted a forfeit tie. You get 2 per season. 3rd time counts as a loss for you but remains a tie for your counterpart.
SPECIAL NOTEIn relation to the section on forfeits, take note that forfeits will affect your draft position. You have been warned..
Season FormatEach season is two halves of seven games. The first half is against your own division and one division from the opposing conference. The second half is against your own division and one division from within your conference.
Spending MoneyPetty Cash spending on inducements is not allowed for all teams.
Readying TeamsDuring regular season: If the league must decide, the team with higher TV will ready first.
During playoffs: If the league must decide, the team with the lower seed will ready first.
Superbowl: If the league must decide, the team with lower points during the regular season will ready first. If tied, Wildcard tiebreakers will be used to determine who would be 'lower'.
Time OutsIf you are going to time out your opponent, you need to warn them first. The warning cannot be the same turn you time them out.
Points 7-3-0 (Win-Tie-Loss).
FluffThe NBFL has an exclusive rights deal with ESBN. If you wish to add to the colour of the league (And we encourage you to), please PM DrPoods or contact him on Discord.
DiscordThe NBFL mainly interacts through Discord. Most coaches will already be members of the NBFL Discord group but if you are not then the link is here
Tie BreakersIf two or more teams end on the same points total at the end of a season, the tie is settled accordingly.

The tie breakers are as follows for:
Divisional Winner
1st: Head to Head
2nd: Divisional Record
3rd: Conference Record
4th: Touchdown Differential
5th: Casualty differential
6th: Oh Cmon, really? D6 it.
Wildcard Winner
1st: Head to Head
2nd: Conference Record
3rd: Divisional Record
4th: Touchdown Differential
5th: Casualty differential
6th: Oh Cmon, really? D6 it.
If there are more than 2 teams tied, then all pairs of them will be compared:
If one of them wins against all of the others, then they are ranked first out of all the teams that were compared, and the tiebreaker process restarts with all the remaining teams that are still tied.
Or
If one of them loses against all of the others, then they are ranked last out of all the teams that were compared, and the tiebreaker process restarts with all of the remaining teams that are still tied.
Commissioner's NoteIt's our league, we can shape it. Most ideas will be put to a vote if the relate to rules. If you have a fluffy idea lemme know and lets make it happen!


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.

THE NBFL PLAYER DRAFT

- Each team is awarded at least one draft pick per season. Draftees are actual
players
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.



BETWEEN SEASON ROSTER MANAGEMENT

- You may cut any permanently injured player.

- You may cut healthy players above 31 SPP.

- You may request a skill change among any 1 skill player on your roster from anything to a normal access skill for the respective player.

- You may add and subtract rerolls, cheerleaders and assistant coaches freely.

- You may hire as many players as your team allows. If you don't have sufficient funds, they will be provided.

- After all of the above management and drafting is completed, all players with less than 6 spp will be increased to 6 spp to start the season.

- After all of the above management and drafting is completed, each team will be set to 450,000 gold to start the season.

- If a coach leaves the NBFL, generally their team will retire 2 seasons later. When a team retires, all of their legendary players, as well as any injured players, retire with the team. The rest of the team may become potential draftees.

- If a coach needs to leave the NBFL for a short time, they cannot hold their race. However, they might be able to return with their old team if that race is available; or they may start a new team. Coaches who leave but expect to come back should discuss with admins about what will happen with their existing team.
