You can do this as soon as you find out, up until the 6th game of the season. And the next season if you keep that player, you HAVE to move that player to his new position if he stays at that new position. (THIS WILL NOT COUNT AS A *PR PLAYER)
a) Your HOME TEAM, is the team you pick in a current NFL CITY to have as your TEAM only.
b) You can only pick a NFL team in your Conference ONLY. NFC Conference NFC teams only, and AFC Conference AFC teams only
c) Once you choose a location for your team you can't move your team for 2 SEASONS. Then it will take a majority vote from other Owners (in your Division only) to agree on you moving your team to another city.
d) You have to have at least 1 PLAYER at each position from the HOME TEAM you pick, you can have up to 2 PLAYERS from your HOME TEAM per position on your team (During the 8th Week),
e) NO OTHER OWNERS CAN TAKE A PLAYER FROM THE NFL TEAM YOU PICK AS YOUR HOME TEAM.
f) Each Owners HOME TEAM will have also Depth Chart players on your Home page. this is like your HOME TEAM replacement players. They are YOUR PLAYERS ONLY
g) On your HOME TEAM you can replace a player or players from YOUR HOME TEAMS DEPTH CHART as many times you want up untill the 7th Week. After the 8th Week NO MORE moves.
h) A Player OUT FOR THE SEASON or Injured (Not Playing) more then 2 games on Your HOME TEAM (ONLY) can be replaced with another player on your HOME TEAMS Depth Chart up until the 8 week of the season.
a) Expansion Teams- If the League ever expands we will expand ONLY 2 more teams, 1 in each Conference. So that will make it 4 teams (NFC) and 4 Teams (AFC). That will be the most we will EVER expand to. It will take a 5 out of 6 votes to pass.
b) New League Owners will get a PRE-MADE TEAM already in a City that they choose or that was given to them by the Commissioner to take over, 1 in the NFC and 1 in the AFC.
c) The newly form expansion team will parcipate in the up coming draft but will draft last because they didn't play in the season pryor to coming into the league. Plus they are already getting a pre-made team.

g) Current Owners losing a player or players (NO MORE THAN 2) can NOT NEGOCIATE with that NEW Owner for players or Draft picks, he has to pick up a player from the free agent pool.
* Note-There will NOT BE Any Expansion teams After 8 Teams.
RELOCATING YOUR "HOME TEAM" TO ANOTHER NFL CITY
a) If you ever want to move your HOME TEAM, it will take ALL other Owners in that Conference (NFC or AFC) 4 out of 4 votes in each Division to vote for where you can move to, being that we have players already on those teams you might want to move to. Current teams must stay in the City they are in for 2 YEARS. After 2 years in a city you are eligible to move to another city with a 4 out of 4 vote. If voted to move, you CAN'T MOVE AGAIN for another 2 YEARS.
Note: the Commissioner can APPROVE a move after 1 year if Owner has good reason to move.
b) All Owners who want to move their HOME TEAM, must submit their request to relocate in the FIRST WEEK of FEBRUARY. You also can submit your request as soon as the season is over. If Two Owners want to move in the same year, and BOTH want to move to the same city, the team with the MOST PLAYERS on their roster from that city gets awarded that city.
c) The NFFL league Commissioner will charge a fee ($5) for relocation to move YOUR "HOME TEAM"...The Reason on the fee is because it takes a lot of work to change a Owners home page and Some Owners don't like to lose players they already have. So a moving fee may discourage Owners from moving every three years. That $5 fee will be paid along with your $25.00 league fee, and will be added to the $30.00 Championship game winnings.
**The $5 fee is WAIVED if you are a NEW Owner taking over a team from an excising Owners team that quit after the season.
d) If all Owners in your Conference agree for you to move, then you can protect and keep 4 players from your HOME TEAM you are moving from, (if you choose too) 2 Offensive players and 2 Defensive Players ONLY. All the rest of your former HOME TEAM players go into the free agency pool.
e) If a player YOU OWN ALREADY gets picked up or traded to the team your moving from during March FREE AGENT PERIOD that NEW players does not have to count as one of your 4 picks. You automactily get to KEEP that player. Or if you protected a players as one of your 4 you wanted to keep and that player get traded or signed to a DIFFERENT CONFERENCE (NFC/AFC). Then you CAN NOT pick up another player, you will have to wait until we draft in September.
f) Some Owners may have players on their current roster from the city that you want to move to, If that happens the Owner can negotiate on taking one of your players from that position they lost or offering you a replacement player at that position or another position. Or offering you DRAFT PICKS at the draft, EXTRA PLAYERS and even a CASH settlement.
*A Owner that loses a player or players because you move to a team he had players on, don't like what another Owner is offering, will have the option to pick up a FREE AGENT player instantly (AT THAT POSITION ONLY) without waiting until the league draft in September. Or have the option in picking 1ST pick in our league draft AT THAT POSITION ONLY.
g) When negotiating with other Owners who might have a player or players on their current roster from a team that you are wanting to move to, the Owner wanting to move can use the chart (AVERAGE, GOOD, GREAT) on a players rating to help him figure on how much to offer that Owner on that player you may have.
h) If two Owners can't agree on players or draft picks in trade to settle The Owner from moving, then and ONLY then can the Commissioner step in and award the Owner or Owners who are blocking the other Owner from moving his team, a player or players or Draft picks to settle the move.
i) If you receive a player from a Owner that he gave you in order to move, and that player DOES NOT SIGN with the team you have him on and becomes a free agent, and you LOSE that player to the other conference (NFC/AFC) you have the option in picking up a FREE AGENT
(AT THAT POSITION ONLY) right away, or wait until the draft.
j) If a current Owner DON'T Have any players on the HOME TEAM you are wanting to move too, That Owner can NOT block you from moving your team with a NO vote, or negotiate with that Owner for players or draft picks to get your vote for you wanting to move.
k) If there are NO players that are owned by other Owners in the NFL City you want to move too, then, you DO NOT need a vote to move to that NFL city.
l) If you get the votes to move, you cannot move your team again for another 2 years
Note: The Commissioner can APPROVE a move after 1 year if Owner request it
m) No other Owner can move to the City you moved from for 5 years.
NFFL COMMISSIONER CAN BE THE ONLY ONE TO ACCEPT OR DENY ANY RULE PROPOSE CHANGES TO VOTE ON.
a) All proposed rules can be presented to Commissioner Angelo J. Venegoni, I will present it to Our League Owners to vote on in an e-mail.
b) If I believe that your proposed rule does not benifit our league I will not present it to the league, unless you get two other Owners who want the rule you proposed to be voted on.
PROPOSED RULE CHANGES OR ADDING A NEW RULE 3/4 VOTING
a) The NFFL Fantasy League is Adopting the three-fourths rule in voting on ALL rule proposals.
*note-Some organizations reguire a three-fourths vote instead of two-thirds 0r Majority in certain types of rule changes These organizatins want to know that MOST of the Owners agree with a proposed rule. They believe the the more that are in favor of any proposal, the better the cooperation they will get in carrying out what is adopted. An easy way figure this vote is to remember that every no vote needs three yes votes.
b) So if 7 Owners out of our 8 (75%) members vote for a NEW rule to pass or to fail, then the rule will be passed, or failed.
c) So our Fantasy League all proposed votes will be a three-fourths vote on ALL proposed votes. Because I feel that it is not fair that 1 member can stop any kind of proposed vote when 7 other Owners would vote the other way.
TIE BREAKERS FOR SEASON, PLAYOFFS AND CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES
a) The Team with the MOST OFFENSIVE POINTS wins if any teams have the same amount of TOTAL points at the end of 14 games.
b) If for any reason two or more teams have the same amount of offensive points, then the team with MOST TOUCHDOWNS wins...Both Offense and Defensive touchdowns
c) If two teams are still tied (with same amount TD) then the team with the HIGHEST SCORING PLAYER wins...
d) If two or more teams Have the same amount of points in the Standings, Then the HOME TEAM Record will decide where you are in the Standings. *(This is for the Standings ONLY)
OUR LEAGUE DRAFT
In Private Leagues with a Live Draft, the participant who initially sets up the live draft ("League Commissioner") will select a date and time when the league will draft. The League Commissioner may change this date and time at any time up until two days prior to the start of the draft. You will be notified via e-mail by NFFL of such changes to the date and time of your Live Draft.

*(All players dropped must be dropped by 7:00 pm on the FIRST SUNDAY IN SEPTEMBER)
a) Team in last place in Divisions drafts 1st in EVERY position round, then Reverse Order.
b) NFC and AFC will be having separate player drafts, but either on the same day or a different day, because NFC can draft ONLY NFC players and AFC can draft ONLY AFC players so drafting all at once won't effect your drafting.

d) After the team that finished last makes his first pick in each position round, we will then go in REVERSE ORDER

a) You can make TWO moves per season after Week 4, and Week 7, Picking up players will go in the order of the team with the LOWEST amount of points in each conference, (NFC and AFC), they will go first and so on. I will send out an e-mail or call all Owners after 4 Weeks and 7 Weeks, asking if they want to make a move or not. If you DON'T Respond in ONE DAY The next teams in the picking order will go ahead of you, same applies to you. If you missed your 1st pick, you can then pick after the other 3 teams picked. Because we can't wait more then ONE DAY of notice. All moves made you will have to make by SUNDAY at 12:00 Noon
b) 1 PLAYER CAN BE SELECTED AT ONE TIME, once you pick your 1 player then it will be the next teams turn, then the next team. You can take a player from ANY position.
*You can PASS in the first round and wait until your turn again, because you might want to see what players the other Owners are dropping that you may want. BUT if you pass TWICE then you ARE DONE. Or you can just say I am not making ANY moves at this free agent period.
c) ALSO Remember once you make a move at that position you can't make another move at that position again (unless the player you picked up gets Injured, or you replace that player with a HOME TEAM Player). If your replacing a player from HOME TEAM you can do that as many times as you want up until the 8th Week. You can also drop a player at any position ONLY 1 per position. That Player will be marked with an (*PR) to show that you made a move at that position.
d) During the 8th Week ONLY, you can replace a NFL player on your starting team with (ONE) of your HOME TEAM players from your HOME TEAM DEPTH CHART PLAYERS at One Position. So now you would have (TWO) HOME TEAM players at one position. THIS IS NOT A REPLACEMENT PLAYER. In other words, as long as the player is on your HOME TEAM, this is the ONLY time you can use TWO HOME TEAM players at one position. This HOME TEAM player can replace ANY other player you have at that position, Injury, and Replacement players, Suspended player, or a player having a bad season, if you decide too use this option.
ONLY and ONLY this can be done DURING the 8th Week period, that's when you can decide to use TWO HOME TEAM players at one position.
e) *You CANNOT start a season with TWO "HOME TEAM" players**.
f) If a player gets injured and is out at least 2 games from the team you have, (no players can be replaced for minor injuries, or just out 1 game) you can replace that player with a different player up to the 8th week games.
Or if you just want to replace a player on your team that is not having a good start, you can replace that player with another a player at that position in WEEK 4 or WEEK 7 only.
g) You can ONLY make a change one time per position during the season, unless it is your HOME TEAM player you can replace that player or players from YOUR HOME TEAMS DEPT CHART as many times you want up until the 8th Week.

k) Players OUT FOR THE SEASON or out 2-8 weeks can be replaced RIGHT AWAY as long as it is annouced that the player is out for that time period, (up until the 8th Week)
l) If your team didn't make a move in WEEK 4 the next time you can make a move is after the 7th Week, again I will send out e-mails asking. Then the final time you can make a roster move will be after the 7th Week. Then after the 7th Week NO MORE FREE AGENT MOVES CAN BE MADE..
ALL MOVES have to be made prior to the following game, so you will have to have your moves by SUNDAY by 12:00 noon.
m) If a player on your team gets traded during the season to the other Conference(NFC/AFC) before the 6th Week then you can pick up another player right away.
n) THERE WILL BE NO TANKING DURING THE 7th WEEK ONLY OF FREE AGENCY PERIOD.

*This is for teams in 3rd or 4th place ONLY.
o) After the 8 WEEK NO MORE MOVES can be made on your Current Roster, injured, benched, Suspended, Retired, etc.
PLAYERS INJURED, SUSPENDED, OR PLAYERS NOT PLAYING, BRINGING UP YOUR PROTECTED PLAYER IF ACTIVE, DURING THE WEEK 8
a) You CAN pick up a suspended player, or injured players, or Hold out players, BEFORE the 7th Week, ONLY if you know that player is coming back BEFORE the end of the season or on the 8th Week, 9th Week, etc, Players must be back BEFORE or on Week 14.
b) During The 8th Week After I go through ALL Teams Points (NFC/AFC) If you have ANY player that is or was INJURED before or on the 7th week, you can replace that player RIGHT AWAY. You can also replace ANY player with a HOME TEAM PLAYER (up to two per position) during this 8th Week Period. AFTER THE 8TH WEEK NO MORE MOVES CAN BE MADE PERIOD.
c) If a player you own gets INJURED on 8th week of games after the 6th week Free Agency Period, you can replace that player.
d) If a player is out for the season or won't be back by the 14 Week of the Season, NO OWNER can pick up that player, just to have him on your roster.
e) Injured players out 2 games or more can be replaced ANY time up to the 6th week, after that NO INJURED PLAYER CAN BE REPLACED, unless a player you own gets hurt right on the 8th week, or a player was out on the 7th week game and you didn't know if he would be out for the 8th week and you find out he will be out on the 8th week also, then you can replace that player.
f) Once your injured Players is dropped, you lose that player. You cannot protect that injured player. That injured player goes back into the free agent list.
g) Injured players DO NOT count toward your 1 position player move. You will see a (*IR) next to the player to let you know he was a injury replacement player.
h) If you want to bring your PROTECTED PLAYER back on your roster you have until the 8th WEEK to make that decision
i) No OUT FOR THE SEASON players can be picked up, that player must be returning by the 6th Week of the season.
j) IF you own a Hold Out Player or a player that is just not playing, or is benched, that player will count as an NOT PLAYING Player . So you can drop that player AFTER 2 GAMES and pick up another player any time before free agency period ends at 6 Weeks. That move will NOT count as a PLAYER REPLACEMENT Player move it will count as an NOT PLAYING Player.
**NOT PLAYING players Owners who have them will wait until the other Owners who have injured players go first, then they can pick up another player. As Commissioner I know when a player is NOT PLAYING or not by the points that player should be getting at the Position he is playing.
k) If the NFL's trading deadline comes after the 8th week on the 9th week and you lose a player to the other conference (NFC/AFC) you can still replace that player right away. (New in 2021, becaues the NFL's trades came on Tuesday, after the 9th week of games)
PLAYERS TRADED AT THE TRADING DEADLINE, DURING WEEK 8
a) On October 30th the NFL has their trading deadline, where ALL NFL teams can make mid season trades(8 games). So in Our case where we are in Week 9 where ALL moves were final after Week 8. But if you have a player that gets traded to another team in your Conference(NFC/AFC) you keep that player, PERIOD. If that player gets traded to the other Conference (NFC/AFC) then you can replace that player RIGHT AWAY with a player in your Conference.
b) If have a player on your roster that's get traded on the NFL Trading deadline (or before) you will have the option of keeping that player if he goes to the same conference team (NFC/AFC) or dropping that player if you don't like the team he went to, and picking up a free agent player to replace that player traded.
c) If you have a "HOME TEAM" player traded during this time, then you have to replace your "HOME TEAM" player with another "HOME TEAM" player from your Depth chart if that player gets traded to the other Conference (NFC/AFC). If that "HOME TEAM" player gets traded to the same conference, you can keep that player and drop another player on your team at that position. This is for if the "HOME TEAM" player that was traded was a STARTER on your roster ONLY, not if he was in your "HOME TEAM" Depth Chart.
*PROTECTING INJURED OR PLAYER HAVING SLOW START IN PROTECTION LIST 1OFFENSIVE AND 1 DEFEFENSIVE PLAYER ONLY
a) Owners can now PROTECT a player they have if that player gets INJURED or SUSPENDED (or NOT PLAYING, SLOW START IN POINTS ) If Injured he has to be out 2 weeks or more BEFORE WEEK 8 in their PROTECTED PLAYER (*PP) list for the season if you choose to. Then you can pick up another free agent player to replace that player. You can protect 1 OFFENSIVE and 1 DEFENSIVE PLAYER ONLY. You can drop and Protect a player as many times as you need to all BEFORE WEEK 8. If your PROTECTED PLAYER comes back from injury you can bring that player back at ANY time, or keep the Player you picked up for the rest of the season. Or you can DROP your PROTECTED PLAYER and KEEP the player you picked up for that PROTECTED PLAYER, and you can put ANOTHER PROTECTED PLAYER in your PROTECTED LIST, up to WEEK 8. This PROTECTED PLAYER list is for a player you CURRENTY have on your starting roster ONLY. You can not PICK UP or DRAFT a Player that is out 8 or more games and put him in your PROTECTED PLAYER list PERIOD.
b) This PROTECTED PLAYER (*PP) will NOT count as your Replacement player *RP. You can Drop a PROTECTED PLAYER you have Protected and Put another Injured player in your PROTECTED List as many times you need to up until the WEEK 8 of the season, but only 1 PROTECTED PLAYER at a time.
c) If you have a player (OFFENCE/DEFENSE) that may be having a SLOW point season and he might be a player you really like and you don't want to DROP him yet, you NOW can put him in your PROTECTED PLAYER LIST (if you have room) and you will be able to keep that player for the season and bring him back the following season. This PROTECTION PLAYER you have can ONLY be done by WEEK 5, you can NOT Protect a player you want to keep AFTER WEEK 5. (New in 2022 Season)
d) If you want to bring that PROTECTED PLAYER (*PP) back DURING the season you will have to DROP the SAME PLAYER that you replaced him with ONLY, Or you can DROP your PROTECTED PLAYER and keep the player you replaced your PROTECTED PLAYER with. You have up until WEEK 8 to decide. If you want to bring the PROTECTED PLAYER AFTER the season you can replace him with ANY same position player on your roster.
e) If you have a player on your PROTECTED PLAYER list AFTER the season is over, YOU CAN REPLACE that PROTECTED PLAYER with ANY OTHER SAME POSITION PLAYER on your roster, you MUST decide on MARCH 1st-13th which player you are keeping the PROTECTED PLAYER or the PROTECTED REPLACEMENT PLAYER moving to your next season roster. You MUST DECIDE BEFORE MARCH 17
f) If you haven't decided on a PROTECTED PLAYER or the PROTECTED REPLACEMENT PLAYER and either player gets traded BEFORE before you made your decision on which player you are going to keep, you CAN NOT PICKUP another FREE AGENT player if that happens, you keep the one player that didn't get traded.
g) You CAN NOT DRAFT or PICK UP a Player that is SUSPENDED OR INJURED MORE Than 8 GAMES of the season and put him in your PROTECTED PLAYER LIST. If that player in INJURED or SUSPENDED LESS than 8 GAMES then YOU CAN pick up a player during FREE AGENT PERIOD JUNE 1ST or at our DRAFT in SEPTEMBER.
h) If you have a Player already on your roster that get INJURED or SUSPENDED BEFORE the season starts you CAN put that player on youe PROTECTED PLAYER LIST and PICK UP another player on JUNE 1ST.
i) So you have to Protect a player wisely because if you replace him with a GREAT player you will have to DROP that SAME player you replaced him with or drop your PROTECTED player. That player that you pick up will be marked (*PRP) (PROTECTED REPLACEMENT PLAYER)
