Edmonds is/has/will be one of the best private worlds around. We just finished our WS and will be rolling shortly.
Here are our private league rules.
Teams are expected to win at least 55 games each major league season. Any owner who fails to meet the minimum win total will be evaluated for the future impact on the league. Owners will be asked to explain the reasoning for their lack of success, and any owner found to be tanking will be dismissed by the league. (Subject to league input and commissioner decision.)
Owners need to maintain healthy pitching staffs at the ML level. Teams starting pitchers more than 3 games at less than 50% will be put on probation, after 7 games they will be removed from the league.
All owners are expected to keep MiL pitching staff's at healthy levels. Owners who fail to field competitive MiL teams will be notified, failure to make improvements within 3 actual days will result in removal.
If you do not check in within 7 days without notice, I will notify you of being on probation. If you do not respond or check back in within 10 total days, you will be removed from the league. Owners exceeding 7 days without checking in multiple times during a season will be removed from the league.
If the league feels that you are acting in an unethical or cheating manner, you may be removed.
