2003 – 2004 Fantasy Football League Rules

**Please review**

  1. The League is made up of 12 teams broken down into 3 divisions
  2. There are 14 regular season Fantasy Football Games this year.

At the end of the 14th game, each division winner plus the next 5 teams with the best record go on to the playoffs.

  1. The Playoffs consist of the last 3 weeks of the NFL’s regular season. The rest is handled just like the pro’s, the team with the best record plays the team with the worst record and so on until we end up with 2 teams playing in the Fantasy Superbowl on the 17th week.
  2. Each Team consists of a 16-man roster PLUS 2 injured reserve positions. Players may be put on

IR even though their not on the NFL’s injured reserve list, BUT! They must have a valid injury.

  1. You can draft as many players as you wish in any position, however, you can only have 16 on the roster.
  2. Each week you must turn in an active roster consisting of;

                                1 – Quarterback                    QB

2 – Running Backs               RB

2 – Wide Receivers              WR

1 – Tight End                        TE

1 – Kicker                              K

1 – Defensive Team             DF

                A - All starting lineups must be turned in before kickoff on Sunday. (1200 CST)

                       Log onto geocities.com/swaffl to turn your lineup in.

                B - The only other times that will change is for odd games, such as Thursday games.

                       In this case, you only need to turn in the players of that game before kickoff.

                       The rest of your lineup may be turned in on Sunday.

                C - If you do not turn in a lineup, the previous week starting roster will be used.

                      You cannot use any players from a Thursday’s game unless you specify the players

                       before kickoff. If you don’t specify any of your players for Thursday, you cannot

                       use any players in that game even if you default by not turning in your roster for that

                       week. You will have to use an alternate player. This prevents monitoring players on

                       Thursdays, then deciding by their stats whether to default on Sunday. This also will allow

                       owners to monitor their players up till Sunday to decide who they should start.

                       Please feel free to call me if you have any questions about this.

                D - The commissioner shall call his opponent each week to turn in his/her roster. This

                       should prevent any questions about keeping the fairness of the game. Especially when

                       the Commissioner wins the whole thing! Please remember, if you need a lineup, either call

       your opponent first or check your email.

                E - You may turn in your starting lineup by;

1.        Submit online @ swaffl0.Tripod.com

2.        E-mail me guys...

                                                A - Home swaffl@yahoo.com

                                                B - Work Henry.Townsend@wnco.com

C- When you submit your line-up online, the line-up will go to your opponent.  If you are unable to submit it online,

     Either call a friend to do it for ya OR call and leave it on my voice mail

     @ 214.792.2401.


**You need to e-mail your lineup! Please! Some people do not want to be involved in this**

We do not want our privileges taken away from us

7. To keep the integrity of the sport;

                                A. If you are mathematically out of the playoffs, you cannot trade

                                     any players. Please keep trying, be the team that spoils another

                                     teams chances !.........DONT GIVE UP! It’s not fair to the other


                                B. If you are caught throwing games, you will banned from the FFL.

                                    Come on guys, let’s keep it fair, no teaming up! Any suspicious

                                    acts will be voted upon by the league. Majority Rules!
