  • The Official 2013 Broncomaniac GM Game Rules, Sign-Up, and Discussion Page

    Read everything in my first couple of posts. I would not waste my time typing all of this stuff out if it wasn't necessary. Also, I suggest that you Subscribe to this thread in order to stay as informed as possible over the coming weeks. CP is very much appreciated. Running this game is a lot of work. :thumb:

    This game is a standing tradition for the last few years, and will continue to be so this year. For new players, you are responsible for GM-ing a team through the draft and trades to make your team better. This year we will be stretching the game out and giving everyone time to prepare correctly for this game. As of right now I will be the Commissioner of the game, but I am seeking someone to be the Assistant Commish. Please PM if you are willing to take on some more responsibility in this game. I planned on having TX77 being involved this year (as he was unable to play last year), but he hasn't been online for a while... Oh well. Also, I do not think EINC has been around very much lately, so right now it's looking like a lot of the work is going to fall to me. Again, if you're willing to help please let me know. But I will only seriously consider some of the vets who have been around a few years and been active in this game. Sorry newbies, no extra responsibility to for.

    Also, I'm looking for someone to do the grading. I didn't really want to do it last yeat, but since EINC had to take off I just decided to go ahead and throw something quick together. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't really do extensive researching about the teams, but I did compile a list of all the players lost/gained and made my judgement based on that (also on realism). Sorry if you didn't like your grade

    Here are some links from last years game in case any of the new people would like to see how it goes. The rules this year will be very similar with the exception that ALL FREE AGENTS WILL BE LOCKED AND RETURN TO THEIR PREVIOUS TEAM. I know it was kind of cool last year how we waited until the big name FAs signed in real life, but I think it'll be easier for everyone involved if we just revert all the players to their old teams. Hopefully that'll eliminate some of the confusion that popped up last year.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    And now for that part that you've all been waiting for, the timeline:

    Sign-Ups for returning players: 2/9 - 2/14
    Sign-Ups for new players (to fill the vacant GM spots): 2/15 - 2/17


    Sorry CTM, you did a good job last year but the GM-ship of the Broncos is going to continue to be a revolving door. You will not automatically be able to return to that team, but as a returning vet you have first priority on any open GM spot. Also, you can throw your name into the Broncos mix if you wish - maybe you'll get lucky again. The GM of the Broncos will be chosen randomly. Anyone interested needs to post so in this thread during the sign-up period. A random drawing will happen on the 14th and the Broncos GM spot will be awarded. A new player will not have the opportunity to GM the Broncos. You must prove yourself worthy first.

    Returning GMs - you must post in this thread declaring your intention to return to Team X. I will not automatically assume that you want to play again. Failure to notify me by the deadline above will most likely result in your GM spot being filled by someone else.

    Of course, if you are looking to be an assistant GM, then post here in this thread and work something out with one of the returning players. You do not have to wait until the 16th to sign up for an assistant GM position.

    On the 14th, some time around 5 o'clock (Central), I will post the winner of the Broncos GM spot along with the rest of the claimed teams. Then there will be a period of a couple hours for first come, first serve for returning vets (if they wish to change their team to one of the open ones and haven't yet posted so in this thread).

    Then on the 15th, new players can sign up with their order of preference and will be given GM spots on a first come, first serve basis.

    If you are a returning player but wish to GM a different team than the one you did last year, work it out amongst yourselves and then let me know who lands where. But everyone involved must send me a PM consenting to the change.

    Trading Period: 3/8 - 3/28
    Draft: 3/29 - 4/11 (16 picks per day)


    A Draft Rules/Discussion thread will be created at a later date with more concrete details about the draft. But I wanted to schedule the draft after the Pro Days so that the best possible research can be done on the prospects.

    ALL OF THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE! But I will try to give everyone ample time to adjust.

    FAIR WARNING: If you miss three (or more) of your assigned draft slots, you will be considered an INACTIVE GM. This game is getting more and more popular every year, so if we have people that aren't up to snuff they're gonna get the boot. Some of you should consider yourselves lucky that this policy is not going into effect this year. Else we'd have a few more open GM spots.

    Trade Rules

    That was the trade council from last year; hopefully they will all be able to return again this year, but it might change a little bit.

    Ok guys, here's the deal. All trades must be approved/disapproved by THE COUNCIL. This is to keep the game legitimate, not to spoil the fun. In other words, DO NOT FIRE UP MADDEN ’13 TO DEVISE ANY TRADES BECAUSE THEY WILL BE LAUGHED AT AND REJECTED! Let’s keep it as realistic as possible please (i.e. no trading key superstar players for a bunch of scrubs).

    Also, once a player has been traded they are not eligible to be re-traded. This issue happened a couple of times last year, but it really kills this realism of the game. Unless you are working on some sort of three team trade (in which case notify me of your intention to re-deal the player), do not expect to be able to trade for QB Joe Dude one day and then turn around and trade him away the next. It'll get rejected immediately.

    Since I am the verifier on the trade council you will submit all trades to me directly via PM. Then I will quickly check to see if it is valid or not. If valid, I will vote on it and pass it along to the other 4 members of the trade council for voting. If invalid, I will respond to your PM and let you know where the problem is. I am normally on quite a bit during the afternoon/evening, so feel free to PM me if you have questions. Please use an accurate subject line in ALL messages sent to me. Examples: "Broncos/Browns Trade" or "Draft Order Question". If you have trouble memorizing my user name for the messages just remember: b-r-o-n-c-o-s/-e-l-w-a-y-7- >>> it's really easy. I normally keep my PM boxes pretty clean, but if it gets clogged then feel free to submit trades to my email address: [email protected]

    My intention is to gather all of the trades for the day and send them off to the rest of the council in a nightly message for a mass approval/disapproval vote some time around 10:00 PM (central) or so. Hopefully the rest of the trade council will be able to respond some time the next day, allowing me to officially post the accepted trades roughly 24 hours after they were submitted. So if you're looking to get your trades through quickly I recommend that you submit them before it gets too late in the day.

    But seriously guys, if we all just use the same reference for our draft order (the one I've posted below) and keep track of what all we've done, there is really no reason besides sloppy GM-ing to submit invalid trades. Please remember what pick(s) you trade so that you don't accidentally trade the same pick twice. If you are on top of your game and propose reasonable trades then they should move through the system quickly. Only one GM (of the teams involved in the trade) needs to send me the trade. I don't need duplicate messages clogging up my PM box. And please, do not send me any trade that has not been completely agreed upon by all parties involved. I don't want to have to rescind trades because one person submitted it for council approval before the other GM actually consented.

    Please use the following example format when submitting trades to me:

    --------------------------------------------------

    Denver Broncos receive:
    QB Brady Quinn

    Cleveland Browns receive:
    RB Peyton Hillis
    6th round pick (### overall)

    --------------------------------------------------

    Include position and name for all players; round and overall number for draft picks. If you don't I will probably try to interpret what you intended, but I might just send it back to you as invalid - it'll really just depened on how nice I'm feeling at the moment. Either way you probably don't want to tick me off by sending my sloppy trades since I control one of the five votes that determine the trade's fate.

    This year I'm going to be a lot more strict about to formatting. It's not that tough guys. Please please please just use the exact order I noted above. It makes posting the accepted trades SOOOOOO much easier. I wasted so much time last year trying to figure out you guys trade proposals and I'm not doing that again this time.

    DO NOT SEND ME ANY TRADES UNTIL THE TRADING PERIOD BEGINS!!!!!!

        This is the draft order we will be using. Yes, I am aware that it's probably not perfect. But it matches what I've found on two different websites, so it'll be the one we're using. Find the picks your team has. Write down the overall pick numbers. If you send me a trade with a wrong pick number I'm not going to be nice this year and try to find the pick you intended to trade.

          I, berlownacyo7s, have read and understand the rules and wish to return to my spot as the GM of the Green Bay Packers.

          EDIT - I'd also be open to changing teams.

                      Weren't you the GM of the Browns last year? If you'd rather change to the Bengals you'll need to work something out with BmarshALLDay or hope that he doesn't want to play this year.

                        By the way, I just send out a ton of PMs to all the players from last year, so if you've already seen this thread then go ahead and delete that. I just wanted to make sure to notify as many people as possible so nobody misses out needlessly.

                          I would also like to be entered into the Broncos drawing.

                              If he wants them, then I will bow out. Or take another team if available. Just do not want to do the same team, not like the moves carried over.
