Whats up Coaches, 

I am please to announce that the Season 32 playoffs have officially begun! You can schedule with your opponents and play your games asap. I please ask to post the twitch broadcast in the AIM Blast so everyone can enjoy some playoff football! I realize some of you guys breeze through the newsletter sometimes, so i'm going to try to bullet point some important information for you guys.


 

 

  • Playoff Coach Requirements are NOT mandatory. Which means you do not have to put in league central stats, recaps or scouting reports. However, we do ask you to please broadcast.

  • We have opened the thread for Season 33 signups if you are interested in Season 33 , which will start beginning of March, please post on the forum in this thread: http://s9.zetaboards.com/mofleagues/topic/7440332/1/ We currently only have 14 coaches signed up for Season 33, so we're going to need you guys to sign up soon as you can. 
    *Also if you are not interested, please post and just tell me, it'll be easier*

  • Season 33 is going to be an OLD SCHOOL season. Which means all the logos you will see on the website will be all from the 1980s, also means that you will be required to use your teams 1980s uniforms when playing!! Should be fun.

  • Season 33 rule changes will be announced shortly: It's not 100% official but it looks like we will be banning custom playbooks, and letting you use any teams stock playbook. With that being said, you can only use 1 playbook for the season. You must announce that playbook before the season starts. Also, we will be putting in a rule to make you guys create highlights of your broadcasts, to make it easier for coach requirements, and if we need to go back on your game. We also might be making it mandatory for both visiting and home team to broadcast.

We also have updated the website with the following:

(Remember to refresh the page if you do not see updated content)

Regarding coach requirements. I mentioned that all of your requirements were due Monday February 23rd, that means that they were DUE, not that you had another day to enter them. They were due when the deadline hit last night. 

  • Coaches who had games simmed will not be penalized in the draft, if they were NOT AT FAULT. 

  • At fault simulations will hurt the following coaches: Kckeith57, Mellomoney93, Woody_08, and Classo1999. Which means you will be drafting in the last group before the rookies and returning veterans.

  • Remember if you have any questions at all, contact me.

Season 32 Rule Changes (Quick Overview)

Gameplay Changes
+ All-Madden settings automatically turn off your tackling cone and kicking arrows. Kicking arrow is ALLOWED to be used however the tackling cone is NOT ALLOWED:
To turn on the Kick Aiming Arc go to Settings > Visual Feedback > Kick Aiming Arc - On.
To turn off the tackling cone go to Settings > Visual Feedback > Defensive Graphics - None.

+ 1.1.12 Banned Playbooks - The Eagles, Run 'n' Shoot, & Pistol Offensive Playbooks are NOT allowed to be used.

+ 2.1.4 - We do not have any strict depth chart rules. The only thing that we ask is that you DO NOT sub in a HB when running the FB Dive. Also, make sure any substitutions you make, on depth chart or formation subs, are realistic. Basically if you do not see it on Sunday, we should not be seeing it in the MOF.

+ 2.1.3 - When faced with a 4th down situation, you should be kicking the majority of the time. Our 4th down rules are more relaxed than most leagues, but that doesn't mean you can abuse these rules. That being said, these are our 4th Down Rules:

You are ONLY allowed To Go For 4th Down In These Situations:
             a.) 4th and 1 or less on your opponents side of the field at any point in the game.
             b.) Situations where it is difficult to make a field goal (ie: Wind factor, length factor, kicker skill level). Inside opponents 40 yd line only.
             c.) When there is 5 seconds or less left in the 1st half and you are in throwing distance for a hail mary. (Only from your 40 to your opponents 40 yard lines).
             d.) Losing at any point in the 4th quarter.
             e.) Losing by 28 points or more at any time in the game.

+ 2.1.4 - There are certain plays that we have rules on. These plays also cannot be used in excess as well as the following situations:

             a.) Playaction passes are not allowed to be called in back to back plays. You CANNOT call a playaction pass on 3rd down with 7 yards or more to go. (This includes calling a Playaction pass and bypassing the RB animation or hot routing the RB)
             b.) Screen passes are not allowed to be called in back to back plays.
             c.) Draw plays are not allowed to be called in back to back plays.

             d.) FB Dive can only be used inside your 5 yard line or inside your opponents 5 yard line.

+ 2.1.6 - No huddle offense should never be abused. You can use No huddle at any time, as a change of pace, but you should not base your entire offense on No Huddle.
 

+ 2.1.7 - There has been issues with Madden '15 with bypassing the RB animation during Playaction passes. There is no reason to do this unless you are trying to cause some sort of glitch. If you do not want to call a Playaction pass, then don't call one. Hitting R2 to bypass the animation or hot routing the RB to bypass the animation while you are under center is considered a glitch in the Madden community. While we will not have any rules against this, if it becomes a problem we will further look into putting a rule in place.

+ 2.3.2 - After you manually move a player pre-snap, you can't just change immediately after the ball is snapped. That's just like moving a guy than switching to a D-Lineman. If you move any player on defense pre-snap you must stay in control of him for the majority of the play, if you need to change to get after the QB or HB you can do that after the play developed, but until than you must stay controlling the player you manually moved pre-snap.

+
2.4.6 - It is known that if you call a squib kick when the return team is in an onside return formation, you will recover the squib kick 99% of the time if you barely move the power meter. You will NOTT
be allowed to call squib kick in onside kick situations.

Draft Configuration Changes
+
11.1.6 - We will draft in 4 groups.
              a.) Previous Seasons Veterans.
              b.) Veterans who did not play 16 games in the previous season.
              c.) Returning Veterans from Seasons Past *Excluded from 11.1.7*
              d.) Rookies. Any coach who has not completed 16 regular season games in their career is considered a rookie.

+ 11.1.7 - You will be sorted and randomized inside of the groups in 11.1.6 coach activity, aka Coach Requirements. You will be graded with the following format:
(Remember previous seasons non-playoff teams will always pick in front of previous seasons playoff teams inside these groups)

              1.) A+ = All Coach Requirements Completed

              2.) A = 90-99%

              3.) B = 80-89%
              4.) C = 70-79%
              5.) D = 60-69%
              6.) F = 50-59%
              7.) Incomplete = 0%-49%


MOF Super Bowl Changes


+ 12.1.1
- Starting Season 32 we will rotate the AFC and NFC home team for the Super Bowl regardless of their record.

              1.) All odd seasons the AFC will be the home team.

              2.) All even seasons the NFC will be the home team.
+ 12.1.2 - You must play the Super Bowl in the Super Bowl stadium in the game. Every installment of Madden has the Super Bowl stadium as a selection.

+ 12.1.3 - You must give the league adequate amount of time to watch the game. Everyone definitely wants to watch the game, so try and give an announcement 24 hours before you play the game.

MOF DONATIONS

As you all know this is a 100% free league to be a part of. All of the league fees come directly out of the Commissioner's pocket. The most recent expense is the LMS website. So I am asking for a donation for the website service, from all the coaches. It is not mandatory, but it would help greatly.
