Below is how the keeper thread is set up each season. The first post gives all fair warming of what is expected of them and when. The 2nd post always repeats the rules so no one loses track and for quick reference. I will not include the next posts that include game 120 standings, draft order and lottery participants and results, Then will be a list of the 24 rosters for the next season.

I inlcuded the first two posts as this also gives a new owner an idea of where we are at right now and all the info they should need before inquiring about a particular team.

The league started in 1885, 1918, 1951, and 1984 with the concept that we would run 33 seasons that would include every season since 1885 to the future season of 2017. What makes this league fun is the deep player pool and the fact that you can carry up to 33 men on your roster with up to 8 coming along as pick your own AAA. This allows an owner to pick up a player who is good every other season and not have to drop him during his off seasons with the risk of not getting him back. The catch is that there is a 140M cap for the up to 33 players.

Rosters are posted for you each season and you simply copy and paste the roster into your own post and then without deleting any players you list your cuts by simply typing cut next to the players name.

Keepers are due no later than Sunday, May 12th, 2013.

The untimed draft will start no later than Monday, May 13th, 2013, following a 24 hour roster freeze , giving owners a chance to check keepers and make trades before finalizing rosters, and then we'll go on the clock Wednesday, May 15th, 2013 at 10:00 AM.

Once rosters are frozen no changes may be made unless commish is given notification as all keepers are sorted to be deleted at once and this makes it easier for zizzo24 to do his voluntary task.

Any keepers not entered on time will have the previous roster posted by the commish and all eligible players listed as keepers to insure you do not lose key players. This is not a way to take advantage of the system and post late as the only thing you are doing is making more work for me as I must the enter any cuts manually. Any owner in this scenario must contact the commish before making their 1st pick to make cuts or your roster will remain frozen as is.

Rules

Salary Cap 140M

Drafting Policy
Draft times will be set for round 1 (on the clock) according to the time schedule (10 - 10) with all times set in stone rather than being adjusted because of picks taken off the clock. This insures that all owners are on the same page concerning the 1st round picks. For example pick 1 - 10am, pick 2 - 11am, pick 3 - 12pm, etc. If 8 picks are taken off the clock even though it may seem agonizing to some, pick 9 would still be at 6pm on day one of the draft. This continuity will allow for different lifestyles and a little less stress concerning something we should all consider fun. Round 2 will be on day three of the draft every time using the above time schedule, using the league standard 1/2 hour time schedule, allowing for one round a day through round 4 or 5 (depending on number of picks needed still) when times will be sent out 12 hours in advance in a multi - round sequence, using an expanded time schedule ( 9:00AM - 12:00AM) to get the lower rounds done as quickly as possible.

Draft order
According to the creator's intention the draft order will be made after the lottery is run and that initial round will be the order for the entire draft.

Tiebreaker Determinations
Nothing was written into the original rules concerning tiebreakers.

Tiebreakers will be determined by head to head record up until game 120 against each other. If tied in those head to head games runs scored against each other will be the 2nd tiebreaker. The same method will be used when 3 or more teams are tied. If two owners are tied in runs scored after the 2nd determination a randon coin toss will dteremine the order with heads assigned to the team in 1st alpahabetical order by City name. If owners fail to get tiebreakers in 24 hours before keepers are due a random coin toss (using 1st alpahabetically for heads) will be the final determination (no exceptions so don't procrastinate.)

Lottery
The teams with the worst 6 records will be listed in reverse order and assigned these numbers below and then a random sequence will be obtained from random.org. 30 wins is required to be included in the lottery. The team not making the win floor will draft after the lottery teams. If more than one team is below the wins floor whoever lost more games will draft first. The info was added 12/5/2012 but was known by all since the league was created.

1. 1-40
2. 41-65
3. 66-75
4. 76-85
5. 86-95
6. 96-100

Picks Needed
Because of the inabilty of any owner to know if he will take the full amount of allotted players owners will be asked to post when done drating. This does not mean they cannot change their mind as long as they notify the commish and he will insert them back into the draft order.

Proxies
Open proxies will not be allowed. If you pick early that is up to you as you are only revealing the player you want but but posting more than one player is strictly prohibited. There have been issues in other leagues and I don't want to repeat the past when we can all avoid it. Send out a league wide site mail if needed to insure someone finds your proxy if you waited until the last minute to send one out.

Site mail list:
rooskie; tridentric; Arte; ARomano; dasfile4776; markeking; b0xx; bsmuke; toddleduc; gorbyruss; sheller; hockeyhead; zizzo24; oram13; Tammyk; odalisgagne; drbernabo; robboogi; verbal kint; twfan; blackjay11


Stadiums & Franchises
You must use a stadium in use in one of the 4 years we are playing - once you choose a stadium, it is yours until it goes out of service.

If an owner wishes to follow the R/L switch of his francise from one stadium to another because of a new one being built or re-names because of marketing decisions he will be allowed an un-contested switch. This will be know as the hockeyhead rule.

Trades
Trades may be made at any time but the ones that go through the GM Office are not to be posted individually as the comissioner will copy and paste the entire trade page into the trade thread periodically (based on trade activity) during the season updating traded pick their. For those unaware you can go to GM Office, transactions (which defaults to waiver wire,) dropdown to trades and all are listed there. When dropdown to trades is used another drop down appears allowing owners to filter through the trades of any season.

All trades unable to be completed in the GM Office will be recorded in the trade thread and confirmed by the other owner participating in the trade.

Picks may be traded from 3 seasons into the future so if we are in Season 4 draft we could trade picks from picks 5, 6, and 7.

Trades whether completed in the GM Office or in the off season may be vetoed with the standard 6 vetoes to nullify. Off season trades are a little trickier and if 3 or more owners voice discontent over a trade the comissioner will call for a vote and owners will have the standrad 24 hours to vetoe. Because this could lead to major issues as in trading a 1st overall pick it would be wise for owners to announce blockbuster trades in both the draft thread and trade thread to avoid the issue of a trade being vetoed after a pick has gone by and the original owner losing out on a player he may have taken originally. I have rarely seen this happen as an owner holding an overall first usually demands a lot of compensation but you never know, better to be safe than sorry. In the event immediate discontent is shown this would be during the off the clock time anyway so the draft would be held up and a site mail sent out giving owners 24 hours to view and respond to the site mail. Owners not announcing trades and then owners showing discontent will have to live with the results for not following this format af disclosure of blockbuster trades. The other option if owners balk at this would be to follow the dispute resoltion clause but that would still put the decision in the lap of the commish so I thought this would disclose how I would handle it. I would rahter not be faced with that decision.

Disputes
Owners will be expected to work out disputes or other issues on their own. When that can't be achieved the commissioner will make a decision and if 3 or more owners are not in agreement they may post it in the discussion thread and the commissioner will ask for a vote. To overturn a decision 12 votes will be needed in favor of overturning the decision. The commissioner may not vote.

Basics
No Add/Drop anyone picked that puts you over the 140 mil cap will go back into the draft pool. This should be done asap in case someone else wanted him.
NO WW
No Rent a Player Deals
DH Both Leagues
25 Standard Roster with up to 8 players selected through the pick your own AAA process. All players must be selected in the draft process to be recorded.

I did not start this league as I took it over in Season 2 as the creator, tracyr, found that he could come up with the idea but was not as good at being a commissioner of a progressive as he thought I was, so he asked me to take it over as he was in the other progressive I run.

tracyr has since been absent from the site for quite some time so it was a good thing I did. This is the first season we have had to replace more than one owner as Redbone has been being babysat by robboogi 3 seasons in hopes tracyr would return. Cleveland was one of tracyr's buddies and personal invite but found over time he could not keep up as he had life issues that prevented him from meeting deadlines.

Brooklyn was owned by calhoop who is a good buddy and will be sorely missed but alas he had to cut back, gave me fair warning and told me his team was set up well for next season.

Inquiries are welcome by all and will be evaluated by number of previous progs, and the history and legacy you have made for yourself. We want owners who are interested in playing the next 23 seasons so if that doesn't seem that long to you, you are probably a good fit.

4/29/2013 10:46 PM
Been really busy today and had a second so I thought I would give this a bump.

3 good teams available. One of them was tracyr's being babysat by robboogi, great team, and another run by calhoop who will be missed dearly as he is an outstanding owner. The third is Cleveland and I am baystiing that one, doh!
5/2/2013 11:54 AM

5/6/2013 5:25 PM
Took me a little while to get this posted as tiebreakers were slow coming in so I did the research and completed it so prospective owners no where the open teams stand in the draft.

None of the teams have traded picks and although Seattle is available blackjay11 tells me he will stay until I find an owner (he is my son) so we are really in need the most in Cleveland and Brooklyn but that's not to say Seattle is not available if you like the team.

I have been contacted so we are making progress on new owners and I imagine as we approach the keeper deadline date of 5/12/13 we will see more interest. This is the first time we have had to advertise for owners as I filled the couplle openiings we had by word of mouth before so step up and join a rock solid league with teams available with plenty of talent on them.
5/6/2013 8:16 PM
There is no reason someone would not want to pick up Redbone.  They are primed for years to come.  Roger Clemens, Don Drysdale, Randy Johnson and many solid offensive pieces.  Pitching staff is set, just keep drafting offense.  

Plus Rooskie is a top notch commissioner, very organized and the league is run very efficiently.  There is no lag time between seasons, a serious progressive for a serious owner.
5/10/2013 3:06 PM
Thanks, Rob I appreciate the kind words and these teams are in good shape so join us before keepers are due in two days.
5/11/2013 11:12 AM
Keepers are due no later than Sunday, May 12th, 2013.

We will start off the clock drafting Monday evening or Tuesday morning regardless if we pick up an owner or two or not so don't miss out. We go on the clcok Wednesday.
5/12/2013 4:57 PM
I will take one of the teams, still deciding which one but wanted priority so I'm posting here and shooting you an sm with my choice.
