HOST of the game – please e-mail me the POST file as soon as the game ends.  Please set your game options to autosave after each play and either fastest animation or no animation; also, turn off scroll play-by-play text.

 

 

If you download the league file after you have downloaded your pregame files then you will need to download your pregame files again.

 

 

The Rookie/Free-Agent Draft will occur on the Saturday before the first Sunday of each NFL season – Saturday September 6, 2014 at 8:00am in an AIM chat room

 

 

Pidgin Software – For some of our coaches, even using AIM does not allow them to connect to our AIM chatrooms. As an alternative solution, the Pidgin 2.10.7 for Windows software operates the same as AIM. The link to the Pidgin 2.10.7 software is:

 

http://www.pidgin.im/download/

 

If the software asks you to add a tool bar or change your search engine, you should decline it as such changes are not necessary for the software to work.  You will need to add your AIM username and password to the Accounts section. If you have any problems with this installation, contact Dennis Crowley who is our resident expert in Pidgin.

 

 

2013 Rule Changes:  1) the league voted to allow announcing a swap of one player left-right and another player right-left at the same position with the exception of OT and S in which you may still only swap a LT to RT or RT to LT (and FS to SS or SS to FS) but not both.  The league also voted not to change which defensive card is used (good run was voted against) and not to disallow the use of 3 doubleteams on any one play.

League History:

 

2002 Season:  Champion = PIT.  The New York Giants led by QB Chad Pennington’s 67% completion percentage and RB Tiki Barber’s 1410 rushing yards led the league with a 13-3 record and defeated 10-6 Chicago to make it to the championship game.  Pittsburgh with Brett Favre at QB and Garrison Hearst at RB after an 11-5 regular season defeated 12-4 Dallas in the semi-final game.  PIT won the championship game over NYG 27-24.

 

2003 Season:  Champion = SF.  Defending champion Pittsburgh had a tough season going 6-10.  St. Louis had a great regular season finishing 14-1-1 but was upended by 9-7 Chicago 13-12 in the playoffs.  CHI advanced to the championship game with a 33-17 victory over 12-4 New Orleans.  San Francisco had an 11-5 regular season and advanced to the championship game with a 24-17 victory against 10-6 Washington and a 33-13 win against the 11-5 New York Giants who were attempting to make a repeat appearance in the finals.  SF won the championship game over CHI 23-19.

2007 Season:  Champion = SF.  In the playoffs 9-7 NYG defeated 9-7 SEA 31-3 and then upended two-time defending champion 12-4 HOU 21-20.  DAL had a 14-2 regular season record for the #1 seed and in the playoffs defeated 9-7 STL 31-17 but in a semi-final game NYG defeated DAL 35-21 to give NYG another appearance in the finals.  In the playoffs 12-4 SF defeated 11-5 TB 34-21 and then defeated 12-4 PIT 23-17 to earn the other championship game spot.  In the championship game SF defeated NYG 23-20.

 

2008 Season:  Champion = SF.  In the playoffs NE beat BAL and top-seeded HOU but lost to TB in the semi-finals to give TB a spot in the championship game.  In a rematch of the 2007 season championship game SF beat NYG and then beat BUF to advance to the final game.  In the championship game SF defeated TB 23-17 to give SF its second consecutive championship.

 

2009 Season:  Champion = PIT.  In round  2 of the playoffs SD defeated top seed ATL while second seed TEN beat defending champion SF.  In the semi-finals and PIT defeated NE while TEN defeated SD.  The two top seeded teams battled for the championship and PIT won 38-29.

 

2010 Season:  Champion = SF.  In round 2 of the playoffs top-seed TEN beat NYJ and then in round 3 beat TB to make it to the championship game.  In the other semi-final 3-seed SF beat defending champion 4-seed PIT 38-37 when a 2-point conversion failed with 15 seconds to go.  SF beat TEN in the championship game 40-17.

 

2011 Season:  Champion = PIT.  In the playoff semi-finals #1 seed PIT and #2 seed SF advanced over HOU and GB, respectively, and in the finals PIT fought back to win 24-23.

 

2012 Season:  Champion = BUF.  SD went 15-1 for the #1 seed but in the playoffs lost 42-41 to ATL, while BUF defeated defending champion PIT and then HOU 24-14 in the championship game.

 

 

Everyone in the league needs to be familiar with the bulleted items in the league Constitution and please make sure that you know the game rules for such things as when show blitz, 3-3-5, and 4-2-5 are allowed and what RB’s are restricted.  Also, make sure that you set the game option to autosave after each play by going into the game, clicking on Game, clicking on Options, and clicking on Auto Save after Each Play to put a check mark there.  And please follow the other rules listed in the Constitution such as fastest animation (or no animation).

2011 Rosters     (final update 1/9/2013)

 

 

2011 Draft     (final update 9/15/2012)

 

 

2011 Rule Changes:  1) using the average run defensive card (instead of good) = change approved (vote 10 to 5); 2) further restrict use of nickel defense = same restrictions to nickel, modify the 4th quarter allowance to allow nickel in the last 5:00 of the quarter or else when the defensive team is ahead by 15 or more points (vote = 9 to 7 to 1); 3) further restrict use of low carry RBs (to go into effect in the 2012 card season), see 2012 Rule Changes; 4) restrict swapping of TEs in a 2 TE formation = "best" TE is never allowed to play TE2 where best is determined in the same way as WR1 and WR2 is determined (using completion combinations on all 3 pass types) (vote = 12 to 4 to 1); 5) disallow injuries to QBs in the playoffs or championship game = no change to rule (vote = 12 to 6); 6) modify when trading season goes into effect = almost no support for this so it was abandoned; 7) modify draft order to match NFL tie-breakers (no-one objected so this will go into effect in the 2012 card season, see final entry of http://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakingprocedures in which strength of schedule is the only tie-breaker).

Rule discussions for the 2009 season (starting in 2010):  1) possibly opening trading season in early-mid August when Strat publishes the annual ratings guide, so far there has not been much discussion of this and unless there is more we will continue the policy of opening trading season when Strat releases the cards.

2008 Season Rosters and Schedule    

 

 

2008 Season Draft    

 

 

Rule discussions for the 2008 season (starting in 2009):  1) Currently teams draft in reverse order of regular season finish (with the championship game participants drafting last), we will discuss for teams making the playoffs drafting in reverse order of how far a team went into the playoffs to potentially be implemented in the 2009 season (starting in 2010) – this change was approved by an 8-2 vote on the forum; 2) currently during the draft a team must fill its PR and KR requirements by the end of round 8, this presents admin difficulties for the league so instead teams will be required to fill its PR and KR requirements by the end of the Supplemental Draft, if there is no player eligible to play the needed PR or KR position then the team must use a draft pick on “generic PR” or “generic KR” and the Commissioner will immediately after the Supplemental Draft assign a bad card to fill the slot for the current season – this was presented on the forum with more than a half dozen coaches expressing agreement and there was no disagreement; 3) possibly modifying the requirement for K and P for K to be drafted by the end of round 6 (instead of 5 as it is now) and P to be drafted by the end of round 7 or 8 (instead of 6 as it is now), this modification wouldn’t go into effect until the 2009 season cards (starting in 2010) – this proposal was approved with no dissenting views to have the K position filled by round 6 and P by round 8; 4) currently a 0-rated FB and a 4-rated HB may be positioned at BB, there is a proposal to disallow one or both of these – this was discussed on the forum but several coaches disagreed and there was not enough agreement with the proposal to put it to a vote; 5) next season let’s remove the 3 PR, 3 KR, 3 QB roster maximum until the 53-man cut date, currently it is not allowed to have more than 3 just before the draft but this will allow the draft to proceed more smoothly not having to worry about cutting anyone during the draft – this was presented on the forum with no disagreement; 6) currently a coach must announce before the first play from scrimmage whether a 50-99 carry RB is unlimited in the first half (and it defaults to the second half if there is no announcement), there is a proposal to require this announcement either ahead of time to be posted on the roster sheet or via e-mail with the other coach before kickoff – this was presented on the forum with no disagreement.

2007 Season Draft     (final update 9/13/2008)

 

 

2007 Season Schedule     (posted 8/28/2008)

 

 

 

Rule changes for the 2007 season (starting in 2008):  1) A team choosing to use the 3-4 defensive card must announce before the season which side their MLB(s) will play LILB or RILB and may not swap unless due to injury, a team choosing to use the 4-3 defensive card must announce before the season which side their NT-only(s) will play LDT or RDT and may not swap unless due to injury, the purpose of this is to avoid swapping left/right at will during a game (unless due to injury), currently a player rated at RILB may not play LILB (unless announced before the season) but there is no such restriction on a MLB and this rule would close that loophole; 2) Remove the tie-breaker clause regarding record against #1 seed; 3) players rated at KR or PR may be cut (optionally) before the rookie/free-agent draft and for any of those players drafted in that draft the cutting team will obtain an additional draft pick at the end of that same round in the following season (to a highest of a 7th round pick) unless the player is drafted by the same team, for example if team AAA cuts LK/PR J.Smith and J.Smith is drafted by any other team in the 7th round of the immediately following draft then team AAA will get an additional pick at the end of round 7 in next season’s draft; 4) punt returners who had fewer than 15 total attempts (punt returns plus fair catches) and are designated by Strat as a #2 PR and have a 5.0 or greater yard average on the card (add up weighted yardage with TD counting as 75 and divide by 36) may not be used as a #1 PR (this affects only 1 player for 2007 and that player is un-owned); 5) use the good run / average pass defensive card (instead of just the good/good card) for the entire season (not including playoffs which are unchanged, the home team uses the good pass defensive card); 6) FS and SS may swap just as LCB/RCB with the same restrictions (e.g., can't swap a FS to SS and a SS to FS in the same season); in other words, you may announce before the season that a FS is becoming a SS or vice-versa – this also modifies the roster requirements so that 1 FS, 1 SS, and 1 S are required; 7) punters, kickers, punt returners and kick returners who are cut during a draft and then picked up later in the same draft provide compensation to the coach who made the cut with the compensation being an additional draft pick at the end of one round lower in the following season’s draft (to a maximum of a 6th round pick for a K or a 7th round pick for P, PR, or KR); 8) the championship game no longer has any home field advantage, both teams will now use the good run defensive card and the average pass defensive card; 9) beginning in the 2008 season (in year 2009) the QB limits will be modified so that under 100 NFL attempts (instead of under 50 as it is now) will not be able to play in a game except due to an injury or blowout.

 

 

 

 

 

SEASON 5 -- 2006 Season

 

 

Defending champion HOU made the playoffs with a 13-3 record but was the #3 seed as SF and SEA each had 15-1 records.  After defeating 9-7 TB 24-21, SEA lost to HOU 34-19 to give HOU another championship game appearance.  After defeating 9-7 CHI 41-0, SF lost to 11-5 DAL 21-19 as an 83% field goal attempt with 15 seconds to go was no good.  In the championship game HOU defeated DAL 35-20 to give HOU its second consecutive championship.

Rule change for the 2006 season (finalized August 2007):  If a team is missing one PR or one KR then an 8th round pick (or earlier) must be used to fill the spot; if two spots are needed then a 7th and an 8th round (or earlier) pick must be used; etc. A coach may choose to take a carded player or be put into the "lottery" below just by announcing PR lottery or KR lottery. No player rated at PR or KR may be taken after round 8 unless there is no-one stuck in that lottery (for example, if there are any coaches in the PR lottery then no player rated at PR may be taken in the draft after the 8th round).  After the draft any PR and KR still not taken (which may be one or two or not even any) will be put into a pool along with enough of the very worst previous season PR and KR cards as needed so that every team will get what they need. Each PR or KR card added to a team will count towards the 53 roster max.  For example, if after round 8 there are two teams which each need one KR and one team which needs two KR then that's 4 KR's needed; if there's 1 KR remaining from the draft then that would mean the 3 worst previous season KR cards would be added into the KR lottery. Then I would determine randomly which team KR spot would be filled with which KR card.

  • 9/11/2006:  Trade disallowed (disallowed 9/12 by TRC 4-1 with Wayne, Tim, Ed, and Joe voting to disallow and TJ later voting to allow; to summarize the TRC view Rattay is a viable backup QB who is still fairly young and his NFL career passing stats are approximately NFL average and he is fairly likely to get a shot against at QB’ing a team, in other words he has value beyond just being a roster filler; Mike Green on the other hand is barely worth the last spot on a roster as he was not at all a success in Chicago and is just hanging onto a spot in Seattle) – NYJ receives QB Tim Rattay; OAK receives DB 0 Mike Green

  • 9/12/2006:  Trade disallowed (disallowed 9/13 by TRC 6-0 with Ed, Ron, TJ, Tim, Wayne, and Joe voting to disallow; to summarize the TRC view Rattay is a viable backup QB who is still fairly young and his NFL career passing stats are approximately NFL average and he is fairly likely to get a shot against at QB’ing a team, in other words he has value beyond just being a roster filler; Kenny Wright on the other hand is barely worth the last spot on a roster as he is a career 0 who failed in his shot at starting in Jacksonville and now is just a 29 year old nickel back and the 10th round pick is worth very little) – NYJ receives QB Tim Rattay; OAK receives RCB 0 Kenny Wright and NYJ #10
  • 9/13/2006:  Trade (9/14 Tim called for a vote on this deal; approved 9/15 by TRC with Ed, Wayne, and Joe voting to allow and Tim and TJ voting to disallow; there was a large majority agreement that Phillips is worth a 4th or perhaps a 3rd  round pick but the majority felt that the deal was not “clearly one-sided”) – JAX receives SS 4 Jermaine Phillips; CHI receives JAX #2
  • 9/13/2006:  Trade – TEN receives RLB 0-5 Mark Brown; TB receives TEN #10

2003 Season Rosters  (updated 10/15/2004)

 

        2003 Season Schedule  (posted 9/18/2004)

 

 

2003 Season Expansion Draft  (completed 9/6/2004)

 

2003 Season Rookie/Free-Agent Draft  (completed 9/11/2004)

                                                including Supplemental Draft 9/17

 

 

 

2003 Season Expansion Lottery Draft Order Determination

 

We will use the Massachusetts Lottery http://www.masslottery.com/ and we will use the Mega Ball of the Big Game Mega Millions on Tuesday 8/24.  This is a number from 1-52 which will be listed for 8/24.

 

Late 8/20 evening I randomly assigned via dice roll to each of the 12 new league members a letter A-L.  Each letter will represent a range of numbers in this mega ball as follows:

 

Letter A = 1-4 = KC/Joe

Letter B = 5-8 = BAL/Bill

Letter C = 9-12 = SEA/Jeff

Letter D = 13-16 = NYJ/Jamie

Letter E = 17-20 = GB/Vinny

Letter F = 21-24 = WAS/Brian

Letter G = 25-28 = MIN/Bernie

Letter H = 29-32 = JAX/Brian

Letter I = 33-36 = NE/Mike

Letter J = 37-40 = TEN/John

Letter K = 41-44 = NO/Tom

Letter L = 45-48 = PHI/Jamie

 

If the Mega Ball number for that day is within one of these ranges then the person with that letter gets the first pick in odd numbered rounds of the expansion draft.  If the mega ball bonus is not within one of these ranges (i.e. it's 49-52) then we will instead use the Mass Millions Bonus Number from 8/23 and we will not at all use the Mega Ball Bonus Number whatsoever.

 

The person with the letter which contains a number closest to the Mega Ball Number will receive the second pick of odd numbered rounds of the expansion draft.  The third pick will be determined by the letter containing a number second-closest to the Mega Ball Number, and so on.

The letters A and L will roll over to each other in each direction so that, for example, if the Mega Ball Number is 2 then A gets the first pick, L gets the second pick, B gets the third pick, K gets the fourth pick, and so on.  In this way those who get more "extreme" letters such as A, B, K, and L will not be at a disadvantage and there will be no letters with any advantage.

 

Here are further examples:

 

* Mega Ball Number = 47 means odd numbered rounds of the expansion draft = LAKBJCIDHEGF

 

* Mega Ball Number = 22 means odd numbered rounds of the expansion draft = FEGDHCIBJAKL

 

* Mega Ball Number = 50 means we don't use it at all and we use the 8/23 Mass Millions Bonus Number instead; Mass Millions Bonus Number = 35 means odd numbered rounds of the expansion draft = IJHKGLFAEBDC

 

Even numbered rounds of the rookie/free-agent draft will proceed with the same order (for new league members who will all draft approximately in the middle of each round) as odd numbered rounds of the expansion draft.  Even numbered rounds of the expansion draft and odd numbered rounds of the rookie/free-agent draft will proceed in reverse order of odd numbered rounds of the expansion draft.

In other words, the expansion draft is serpentine as is the rookie/free-agent draft.  The person getting the last pick in the first round of the expansion draft will get the first pick of the second round as well as the highest pick (of expansion teams) in the first round of the rookie/free-agent draft.

 

If someone decides not to participate in the draft after all then his draft spot will be given to the next person joining the league.  If there is a spot open by the time of the draft then an un-owned team will draft for that team and will draft at the end of each expansion draft round.

If there are two or more spots open when someone new wants to join then that person(s) will be given one of these open draft order spots at random.  For example, if the person with letters B, E, and J drop out before the draft and I'm able to find two others to take their place then those two others will take two of B, E, and J while the third spot will be drafted by an un-owned team at the bottom of each round.

 

Result:  The mega ball was a 46 which meant LKAJBICHDGEF which means 1) PHI/Jamie, 2) NO/Tom, 3) KC/Joe, 4) TEN/John, 5) BAL/Bill, 6) NE/Mike, 7) SEA/Jeff, 8) JAX/Brian, 9) NYJ/Jamie, 10) MIN/Bernie, 11) GB/Vinny, 12) WAS/Brian

 

 

 

 

SEASON 1 -- 2002 Season

 

Our inaugural season was great as we did not have one of the four game result deadlines pass with any games outstanding.  Great job everyone!

 

The New York Giants led by QB Chad Pennington’s 67% completion percentage and RB Tiki Barber’s 1410 rushing yards led the league with a 13-3 record and defeated 10-6 Chicago to make it to the championship game.  Pittsburgh with Brett Favre at QB and Garrison Hearst at RB after an 11-5 regular season defeated 12-4 Dallas in the semi-final game.  PIT won the championship game over NYG 27-24.

10/3/2003 Trade:  SD trades RB/KR N.Davenport to DAL for WR J.Jurevicius.  Standard procedure in year one is to vote on whether the trade should be allowed as outlined in the Constitution.  Ed, Rick, and Paul voted to allow this trade while Wayne voted to disallow the trade (with all other league members not casting a vote).  The trade went into effect after game 4.

 

The following Draft List spreadsheet contains a list of every single player rated or given a card by Strat in the 2002 season.  Each player’s rating and card info is indicated as is each player’s 2003 NFL status (such as DENstarterLG, information as of 8/27/2003), age, and ratings from last year.

 

The following three files are combined into a single zip file:

The following is a brief history of my Strat-O-Matic experiences which may help you see that this league is in for the long term.  I was born in 1963 and began playing Strat baseball in about 1980.  I was in a Strat baseball league from about 1981 through 1991.

 

I began playing Strat football in 1986 and joined a league almost immediately.  This league was and still is a draft keeper league called Oops and the league is now in something like its 35th season.  In 1996 I left the area of the league and had to reluctantly leave the league (I stayed in the league an extra full season by flying to the league’s area and playing a bunch of games over three weekends but that was way too tiring).  If you’re in the Southern California area I recommend checking out the Oops league.

 

I began playing Strat basketball (board game) I think in the late 80’s and played season replays on the computer game in the early 90’s.  In approximately 1995 I joined a start-up league and helped shape some of the initial rules and then when the next year the Commissioner left the league I took over and the league has grown to 15+ members and always looking for more.  The league web page is at http://www.somiba.com and if you’re interested in that league let me know.
