Welcome to the CBFL!
We are a BB7s league with CFL-fluff (canadian football league) using any roster available on FUMBBL. The "professional" league CBFL consists of 10 teams, any additional coaches play in "U-Sports-Bloodbowl".
Defending CBFL Champions: Ottawa REDFARTS https://www.fumbbl.com/p/match?id=4125477
We have more glittering prices:
The SELINE DION award: For the 2 teams who play the season opener - of course Seline Dion sings the hymn in their stadium and gives a half time show:
The FAT BOY award for the team that gets picked last in the divisional shuffle:
And the prestigious ALL CANADIAN award: You can earn this award by NOT FOULING for an entire season, or by having amazing caritative fluff in your team bio, or by helping to fund another coach's team which opts for the "go fund me"-option. The ALL CANADIAN award can not be held by a team with fouling badges like the "relentless" and the "unnecesary violence" badges (which are for 16 fouls a game, and t16 foul - kills), they are mutually exclusive, they delete each other:
Teams must have CFL-pun-names. Team logos and bios are highly encouraged. Here are the CFL teams the league is based around:
The CBFL is comprised of 10 teams separated into East and West divisions. One round robin session will lead into an 8 team playoff. Teams will be ranked in each division by tournament points: 3 pts for win, 1 for draw, 0 for loss, -1 for unjustified forfeit (which at the same time counts as a win when looking for the teams who get to draft a NBFL reject).
Tiebreaker for division seeds works as follows:
1) head to head
2) highest Fan Factor
3) a D20 rolloff.
Playoffs: After each season, we will have the Grey Cup playoffs for the Top 4 teams from each Division, and the CBFL Qualifier Tourney for all the other teams.
The 2 teams that make it to the Championship of the Qualifier Tourney qualify for the CBFL the next season with the 8 teams that made the Grey Cup Tourney. All other teams go to U-Sports the following season.
Who qualifies: The top 2 U-Sports teams and the 3 best teams of CBFL-West and CBFL-East enter. BUT with the crossover rule. So, if a 4th place of one CBFL division is better than the 3rd place of the other division, that 4th place team takes the 3rd place team's playoff spot.
Note: If a U-sports team qualifies for CBFL playoffs, but doesn't think they are ready for it (for fearing for the players' health, for example) can decline their CBFL playoff spot and this also auto-excludes them from the Qualifier Tourney.
1st playoff round, "divisional round":
- Better 1st place vs. 2nd U-sports team
- Worse 1st place vs. 1st U-sports team
- 2nd vs. 3rd team WEST
- 2nd vs. 3rd team EAST
2nd playoff round, "divisional final":
- divisional final WEST
- divisional final EAST
3rd playoff round: "greycup". It's the grand finale.
2 seasons will be played per calendar year, unless the coaches decide otherwise.
U-Sports-Bloodbowl is our "feeder-division". At least 4 coaches are required to open a U-Sports division. U-Sports-Bloodbowl-teams must have pun names of canadian college football teams and amateur-football-teams. Their best 2 teams qualify for CBFL playoffs.
- No CBFL-team nor U-Sports-team can play games during offseason.
- MNGs will be cleared.
- NBFL rejects will be drafted.
- Coaches can drop out, swap races/franchises, new coaches may arrive with new races. The order of the race and franchise choices: The early bird gets the worm. The decision is up to commissioner MenonaLoco.
- Division Shuffle: The Divisions for CBFL will be decided in the following way: The coaches of the 2 teams that make the Grey Cup Championship are the Divisional Captains for the following year. Each one goes to a different division. Then they choose from the remaining 8 teams as to which teams go into the opposing division, starting with the Champ choosing first.
Past season (#3), we did not have the Qualifier Tourney. So this season the draft consists of all the playoff teams and the other top (2) teams that were in the CBFL or U-Sports this past season. Menona and Roto will be the captains for choosing the divisions with Menona making the first pick of the team to go into Roto's division.

Rosters for CBFL:
-> All fumbbl-races allowed ("traditionals", bretonnia, apes, khorne, SL https://fumbbl.com/help:SecretLeague , stunty leeg).
--> 7 players on the field and minimum roster size, 11 players max. on the roster. 1000k starting gp.
--> 50% positionals, rounded up (for example, 0-6 Saurus will be 0-3 Saurus in bb7s).
- A Minimum of 2 players must be place on the LOS.
- The use of the Piling On skill costs a team-reroll.
- 2 cards will be provided to each team each game for free.
- The Wizard is available for inducement.
- The Sneaky Git skill counts like Guard for fouling.
- A player may either have MA10, or sprint, but not both.
- 4 players must be nominated for MVP.
- Tied playoff games play overtime.
The "NBFL-rejects-rule": At the end of every season, any team of the West and the East division that missed out playoffs, gets to pick an injured player from the NBFL, that was cut from their roster during the current NBFL season, or the season before. The worst team picks first. It can not be a healthy player, it must be a perm'd one. The NBFL-reject may play as any position in the CBFL (cause if you make it in the NBFL, you make it anywhere). Illegal skills are replaced by a "normal" skill of the coaches choice (for example: a Chaos dwarf may be converted into a war dancer, trading claw against sidestep). Note: If a team misses the playoffs, but penalties from forfeits put them ahead of a playoff team in points, they lose the right to a reject.
How to get started in U-Sports:
- Create a new team with 1000k via link on our group page.
How to get started in the CBFL:
- Upgrading a U-sports team: Change U-sports-team's name to fit the designated city in the CBFL, no other changes.
- Race swap: 1000k for team creation. The coach's new team gets as many skilled players as his former team, but with minimum SPPs. For example, player A of the old team has 50 SPP, player B of the new race then becomes a 31 SPP player with 3 fresh skill rolls. NBFL-rejects cannot be "recycled" this way, they transfers to the new team with the same skillset, spp, and perms. Also, the old team must be retired (or set to cero).
- Franchice purchase: New coach replaces a coach who dropped, and "purchases" the existing franchise. He gets the exact same team with the same race, players, spp's, record, etc. - he just has to invent a new pun name.
"Farm Team" rules:
Sometimes dragging a trashed or hopeless team can be no fun at all. Whenever you feel you are in this situation, you can contact draft commissioner MenonaLoco and ask for permission for a race-swap at midseason (after 5+ completed games).
("Trashed" means you are fielding loners and don't think you can get out of this downward spiral any time soon. "Hopeless" means your team doesn't win any games, maybe managed one draw).
If the draft commissioner authorizes the race swap, it would be done as discribed above.
1) Conditions: Team is a mess (no bench/many perms, low funds), coach asks for permission, commissioner sets a goal that has to be reached and gives permission.
2) Start: Coach publishes "Go-Fund-Me" and keeps track of donations during 1 week (wherever the coach wishes: discord, pm, forum). Coaches can donate rerolls, players (yes, also injured players), cash, staff. All donations will be cash (example: a donated 140k reroll = 70k cash, a donated 60k player with 2 normal skills = 100k cash). If the goal will not be reached, no donations are executed and there are no consequenses.
3) If the goal has been reached: After exactly one week, coach sends full list of donations to the commissioner, who executes all transactions.
- Must coach this rescued team for at least the next season (must not leave, nor swap race or city).
-Modify your team bio: You need a conmemorative plate there, that mentions all generous doners (coach's name and name of the CBFL/U-Sports franchise), who helped saving your team.
-Buy in this order, until you can't buy the next thing on the list. Rest goes to treassury.
I - Buy up to 9 players.
II - Replace permed players.
III - Buy 10th and 11th player.
IV - Buy up to 4 rerolls.
(Any of the new players will recieve the names of donated players and add respective player bios.)
- You can add a doner-badge to your team bio.
