Hey all... as you guys know we've been working on some rules for this thing and they are now almost complete. Waiting for the site to finish, then we'll put em all up. But for now, I'd like to get everyone's ideas going on rules... and really want to know who's interested in being part of a team when this thing gets going. The rules itself have been created under 2 assumptions: 1) we're using FHL SIM; and 2) the goal is to try and be as realistic as possible, while understanding that it's still a SIM and can't be real-life. So I'll start off with the part that it's in the FHL SIM league. If anyone has any questions about FHL SIM, that are interested in being a part of this thing, ask your questions here... we'll provide answers to familiarize you guys with the FHL SIM and how it's going to play into the rules for this. The rules are quite in-depth. They had to be considering the goal is to make things realistic... they're pretty complete as they are, with flexibility put into em - where a majority vote from GMs can change any rule during our off-season GMs meeting. But for the most part, we'd like to keep the rules going without change through a regular season - so teams aren't all of sudden given a new rule that affects their team and their planning. I don't want to post the entire set of rules here (as they are too long too), and while the site is still under construction we can't see them on site... so I'll post parts of the rules from time to time when they come up in discussion and we can all discuss them to see if they work, fit, or need to be altered to thrown away... the other main goal of this thread is to find those that are interested in being a part of this thing. With the ideas, the write-ups and the site construction, we are spending quite a bit of our time trying to come up with the most entertaining game we can for everyone here to play, but it really means nothing if we can't get enough people to be a part of it. And we're talking about more than just 30 GMs here... since the draft has been posted on each board, it has gotten a lot of responses from different fans... we're hoping that we can make a management "team" from each team we have... and we've built incentives into the rules for those people, so playing the role of a scout, for example, has it's own benefits. we've also talked about the idea of player agents... and written this into the rules (pending changes)... tried to create a little game for agents to get people interested in being agents. Anyways... the ideas are all there... just need you guys to start initiating conversation on it... and once a question or idea comes up of a certain part of the rule, I'll post what we have so far on it for review and discussion. Most of all, we've spent the last week or so working on the different things needed here - from JB doing the mock draft, to the rules, to the site construction, etc... so if this thing isnt' going to get enough attention here, the time to kill it is now, so we can move on and try and build a league elsewhere. Waiting for your feedback guys, for all those that are interested in being a part of this. Thanks.
