Can't survive between Super Bowl and fall kickoff? We can't either.
A new league launched last week, now almost half full. This is a full new league for older guys who want to have some fun, are serious, but not too serious. You don't actually have to be old to join (and we are looking for committed/active owners) but you do need to have a mellower, older guys', perspective on life. We aren't going to get rich playing MFL, nobody is going broke either, and we all have wives, kids, and bosses who keep us busy most of the time. So, this is our down time and we just want to have some fun, want to win, but we aren't going to be too crazy about things. Also, rude or offensive owners, whiners and sore losers, will not be tolerated.
The league has 6 starters on offense: 1QB, 2 RB, 2WR, 1TE, K, defense is: 2 DL/DE, 2 LB, 2 CB/S. There is 1 IR and 2 practice squad spots. The scoring is deep as well and brings balance to things. Of note, in most other leagues, RBs are the star, in this league, a franchise QB is the most important role, RBs and WRs are about equal. Defensive roles, generally scoring slightly lower than offense (about 25%) but still significant, are not to be overlooked! LBs, DEs and CBs are all somewhat equal in scoring.
Playoffs are top 6 (division winners get top 4 seeds, plus 2 wildcards), top 2 division winners get a first round bye. Payouts are $250 for super bowl winner, $150 for super bowl loser, $80 for the conference losers.
We use league safe for funds. The only fees are for signup ($40) , no other transaction fees, unlimited waiver and roster changes and trades. Live draft is currently scheduled for April 30th after the NFL draft weekend. No deposit currently required for 2nd year (subject to all new owners vote coming up).
