The website has been updated and Week 5 is now
open. We had to delay the advance because EA
servers were down all night. The next deadline
is still Thursday night at 8pm EST, but we will
extend if we absolutely have to.
will include this tidbit, a quick overview of some
rule changes and additions in every newsletter from
here on out, to avoid any confusion on the changes:
MOF Season 37 Rule
Changes: (Quick Overview)
SECTION 2.2 OFFENSEE 2.2.4 -
Immediately rolling to the sideline
with your QB just to wait for your
receivers to re-route or playmaker
them is an AI flaw. The computer
controlled defenders in coverage
cannot react fast enough. If you are not being pressured by the defense, rolling out with your QB just to use playmaker and re-route receivers will be prohibited.
(Rule is contingent on plays that are designed to rollout on certain playaction plays that has the QB on a PA bootleg)
2.2.5 - If you manually put a receiver or TE in motion, you have to wait until they come to a complete stop to hike the ball.
SECTION 2.3 DEFENSE
2.3.7 - Defensive Lineman Rules:
You will be allowed
to control a D-Linemen but only for
the purposes of rushing the passer.
You cannot control a D-Linemen who
is dropping off into coverage. Nor
can you manually move a D-Linemen to
cover a Receiver, Tight End or
(Exception to this rule is on a
screen play and flats. You may
control a D-Linemen and use him to
cover the RB on screen or flats
DLinemen can play any
Zone/QB spy. However, you CANNOT
manually drop DE/DT into man
coverage. (Only assigned zones)
SECTION 3.3 TEAM
3.3.1 - Roster minimum - You
must have 53 players on your roster
when we begin each season. If you do
not have 53 players on your roster,
you will be prohibited from playing
any games until you get to that
SECTION 5 - SIMULATIONS, FORFEITS & COACH UNAVAILABILITY
5.1.1 - We will now be allowing coaches to play the CPU if their opponent is unavailable because of a vacation or any other PLANNED absence. The coach will let us know when they are playing the CPU, and we will drop the difficulty down to All-Pro also Injuries will be turned off. There are no games to be played during this time except the coach playing the CPU. The staff will watch the stream, and the MOF rulebook will still be followed.
(This will reduce the high scoring games, and give us more accurate player and team stats).
(*Note remember this is just for planned absences, if two coaches cannot hook up before an advance we will still abide by the sim/forfeit rules)
- If you're down 21-0 early in the game
there will be a pop up that says "Tough
Game? We've noticed that you're having a
tough game. Seems like we have matched
you with an opponent above your skill
range. Do you wish to concede early?"
Under no circumstance shall you concede
a game, conceding a game is illegal in
the MOF. You must finish it out.
SECTION 11 - COACH
11.1.2 - Broadcasting your game is
Both home and away teams are
to broadcast their game. Please post in
the Groupme blast before your game
begins so other coaches can watch your
game if they chose to. We will receive
emails once you broadcast, to keep track
of who is broadcasting. If you do not
broadcast your game, you will have a
player suspended for your next game. -
The only exception to this is if your
download speed is lower than 1.5mbps or
upload speed is lower than 1.0mbps. You
can see your speed by going to Network >
test connection speed on your ps4 and
taking a screen shot for us. - In
addition, you MUST be on Groupme chat so
opponents can contact you through there

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.
