Would like feedback on this rules page for os.

Rough draft and obviously needs work but I figured it might be a point of interest.

BFSL Authentic simulation style CFM

Mission statement:

We are a long running connected franchise league. Our goal is to provide a fun, fair and immersive madden football experience. Simulation style means that we play the game the way it is really played in the NFL. No gimmick plays, money plays or otherwise goofy stuff. Basically if you see it in online ranked games we don’t do that here. If you are an AI manipulator in any way, you might be better suited to find a less serious, less established league. We just want to have a strong and active football community, it is as simple as that. If this mission statement and the following rules resemble the way you view madden and the game of football we would be excited to add you to our crew.


12 min qtrs- 15 sec runoff- All-pro

We advance: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 10 PM eastern time


A member in good standing with Operation Sports

Must have twitch: Home team streams and archives on twitch. (We can help you set this up if need be so don’t let this detour you)

Must have or download Groupme app: Again very simple. Used for communication and league camaraderie.


No custom play books: You may use another teams though

No guess play: i.e. run commit/ pass commit etc.

No QB sneak: Simple as that.

No special teams fakes: Simple as that.

No switch/ user catch: No switching when the ball is in the air on either side of the ball. You can switch after the catch to attempt a tackle, but NO switching ball in air.

Pre play movement: Only use the in game menus to make adjustments. i.e. underneath coverage, audibles, shirts etc. No manually changing multiple players assignments.

Mix up your play calling: Don’t run the same stuff over and over again. Spread the ball around don’t pad stats.

Play action: No play action on 3rd and 7 or more, period, it’s AI abuse.

Realistic player movements: No tech bowl stuff or dosi-do linebacker stuff.

4th down: Only go for it in realistic situations. i.e. too close to punt too far for a fg. Time, score, wind, field position, etc. dictate times a team would realistically go for it, use common sense.

No huddle: No abuse of no huddle. Permissible in four minute and two minute offense situations. Use timeouts, spike ball etc and basically just run a realistic offense.

Onside kick: Only in realistic situations, “games on the line, late”


Don’t run the score up: Just be cool and lay off the throttle.

Intentionally quitting/ disconnecting will result in a ban:

Inactivity will be punished by commissioners in an appropriate manner.

[Roster - Trade - Free agent rules]

Roster requirements:

Teams must have 53 men on their roster at all times once the season starts:

Minimum 9 offensive linemen

OL, DL and LBs are interchangeable:

All other position moves must be approved by commissioners:


Each team is allowed 3 trades slots per season:

Trades must be approved by trade panel:
