POTENTIAL OPEN TEAMS
If an owner violates the anti-tanking rules, they may appeal. They can make their case to the world committee and state why they should be allowed to stay. The committee will then vote the fate of that owner., if allowed back you will still need to make the next win floor. Example: if you win 50 games in season 1 and are allowed back you will need to win 75 in season 2. A world committee will be set up by the commish. It will be made up of 4 owners, 2 from the AL and 2 from the NL. The committee will vote on rules violations as well as admission to the world if / when vacancies occur. In case of a voting tie, then the commish will cast the tie breaking vote.
Each owner only gets one appeal, after that a violation results in expulsion from the world. If a committee member quits or gets kicked out, then the commish will appoint a replacement committee member. If the commish quits or gets kicked out, then the committee will appoint a new commish. All owners are expected to keep their minors stocked, to avoid fatigue problems. Above all the owners will be held to the WIS HBD fairplay rules.
