    Bizzaro Dynasty League - The Teams

    Mission Statement
    The Bizzaro Dynasty League (BDL) was created by Centurion in the summer of 2011 during the NFL Lockout following the 2011 NFL Draft. A lot of us were really bored and were looking for something to keep us occupied. There were some falters early on but eventually we got rolling and have been evolving the BDL into something we hope lasts for years to come.

    Bizzaro Dynasty League - The Rules

    BDL Basics
    - 16 team Dynasty League created by combining the 2011 Pre-Lockout Rosters of two real NFL teams, each owner got full reign on any and all player moves. After almost four years of our own drafts, trades and free agency most of the current teams hardly resemble the ones that original were formed.
    - Every team will have an owner. If they desire, they can have a GM/Co-Owner, too. The owner, however, will have the final say unless he otherwise specifies
    - There are a few limitations to keep owners in check. A Salary Cap and a Roster Size Limit.
    - The current Salary Cap for 2017 is $170,000 per team. We converted all original salaries into thousand dollar increments by cutting off the last three digits in the players NFL per year salaries. So for instance a player made $40 Million Dollars over five years in the BDL that would translate to $40,000 over five years or $8,000 per year. That $8,000 goes against a team's Salary Cap.
    - The current Roster size limit for 2017 is 70 players per team. The original Roster size was 75 players because each owner had two full teams to try and squeeze together. Lots of players were cut for high salaries, age, performance and other reasons before the start of the 2011 season. The original intent was to not allow any additional players to be cut and that their contracts had to expire naturally in order for them to become removed from your roster. That proved to be unwieldy in the first year as injuries mounted for teams and by the rules you couldn't add more players. In the 2012 offseason we created some additional rules to alleviate those restrictions and they seem to be working. Players on IR don't count against this number.

    BDL Games
    - Because we have 16 teams we use a 14-game schedule where teams play their division opponents twice a year and then two other divisions on a rotating basis year to year.
    - Scoring system. Every week will have matchups that include lineups and game plans for each team, and the top vote-getter that week in that matchup gets the "win". Final vote result will be the "final score".
    - Players that are injured, out or inactive during a particular NFL game week cannot be inserted into a team's weekly lineup or game plan and if done so then should not be counted as far as voting is concerned.
    - Players that are injured, out or inactive the week previous to an NFL teams Bye Week are also considered that same status during the Bye Week for lineup/game plan purposes.
    - The starting lineup is of 11 players on each side of the ball, in addition 8 substitutes on each side of the ball may be included
    - Each owner must vote on 4 games (excluding their own) in order to ensure games get voted on or they forfeit. If this occurs often then owners may be subject to losing their teams.
    - In the regular season, if there is a tie in a game after midnight an additional hour of voting to break a tie is added and then if still tied, recording as such.

    BDL Playoffs
    - 8-team playoff - 4 Division winners + 4 other best records in League. Seeded by best record.
    - Tie-breaking rules (two or three teams) for playoffs:
    1. Head-to-Head record
    2. Best W-L record in divisional games
    3. Best Net Points
    4. Coin toss
    - Home Field Advantage in Playoffs:
    Teams who win their respective division will receive home field advantage in the Opening round of the playoffs. This gives them the advantage that if the score is tied at Tuesday midnight ET that they advance. However, from the Divisional round forward there is no home field advantage. In this case, if teams tied after the allotted time the thread will be extended for another day to allow more votes to decide. After that it is on an hour by basis as sudden death.

    BDL Rosters
    - Roster Status - Each player on a teams roster will be freely tradable between two teams unless they were Signed during the current BDL year. When a player becomes Signed they are no longer tradable or cuttable until the following calendar year after the Bizzbowl has been completed and all players reset to become eligible for trades. A player can be Signed through several options including the following: 3 Up, Draft, Free Agency (FA), Shark Tank, Waiver Claim, Contract Renegotiation (Renew/Double Down), RFA, ERFA. A player can only be Signed once during a calendar year.

    - Players on any sort of real life Reserve List (IR, PUP, NF-Inj, Left Squad, Susp, etc.) or that are Free Agents signed to no real life team do not count against a teams 70 man roster limit but are still counted against the salary cap. If a player comes off one of these lists or signs with a team then an owner may designate that player as active on their roster at any time as long as they have the space or can otherwise make a move to keep the roster to 70 players.

    - Players that are real life Free Agents and havent played a game for a full calendar year can be cut with no cap penalty. If an owner wishes to pursue this rule contact a Roster Organizer and it will be researched to find the players last official game day played and if needed the date will be noted and the player will be automatically removed once the year is up.

    - Players that officially retire from the NFL will be immediately removed from a BDL roster at an owners discretion in the likelihood that a player un-retires. Both the Roster space and Cap Space will be credited with no penalty.

                Trade and Contract committees still not updated
                Rely on your own strength of body and soul. Take for your star self-reliance, faith, honesty and industry. Don't take too much advice; keep at the helm and steer your own ship, and remember that the great art of commanding is to take a fair share of the work. Fire above the mark you intend to hit. Energy, invincible determination with the right motive, are the levers that move the world.

                  If they are not on their rookie deals irl yes
                  A mans reputation is what his friends say about him. His character is what his enemies say about him

                  Live everyday as if it is your last, one day it will be

                  Life has defining moments, define the moment or the moment will define you

                  Ask yourself if you would feel comfortable giving your 2 best friends keys to your house. If not, find new best friends

                  Dont trust a women who doesn't close her eyes when you kiss her

                      As I've come to find out, you can't extend someone on a rookie deal via 3 up

                            Can someone post the draft order? I'm trying to see how much money I'm going to have to allocate for the draft.
