LEAGUE of LEGENDS
is in season 8 with four different Legend Bowl winners:
Yellowknife Daggers (3)
Barcelona Bulls (2)
Kimberley Diamonds (1)
Roanoke Settlers (1)
The Conference Finals this year have two new teams and three of the four are yet to win the Legend Bowl (Superbowl)
The League runs using the Bleeding Edge BETA software engine and therefore has no restrictions re: Punt Blocks.
The League has a couple of side rules:
: Each team must have an active kicker and an active Punter in the gameday roster
: A team roster can have a max of 10 WR and 11 Secondary players (CB, FS and SS) - This will gradually be reduced over the next two/three seasons by 1 player per season.
: Offense players play on Offense only, Defense on Defense only.
: Injury setting is 74/200 in Pre-season and the standard 100/200 in Regular season
: NO WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS, Players can play anywhere - the caps on numbers for WR and DB are designed to spread the 'speedy' players more evenly between the 32 teams without sacrificing the possibility to play lighter players in positions more suited to there particular skill set. It also encourages players to play players in the position to which they are better suited and take the hit on speed/acceleration.
: Rules are reviewed in the latter stages of each season - RULE CHANGES FOR NEXT SEASON: WR max reduced to 9 (and will drop to 8 the following season)
: DB max reduced to 10 *must include a minimum of 3 safeties* (this will drop to 9 the following season
: RB max 4
: DL min 5 of which 3 must be DT
