FUMBBL League Community of the Americas
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 9 or 10 teams, whenever more coaches want to play here with us, they do so in "U-Sports-Bloodbowl".
Defending CBFL Champions: Ottawa Redfarts
Teams must have CFL-pun-names, and 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.
Round 1: Western and Eastern Semifinal (#1 vs. #4, and #2 vs. #3 in each division; the worse #4 seed is replaced by the U-Sports-Champion).
Round 2: Western and Eastern Final
Round 3: Grey Cup
If a coach fails to play his playoffs first round game on time, he will be replaced by his division's loser (who also conserves his right on a NBFL reject).
2 seasons will be played per calendar year, unless the players 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 team gets into playoffs (instead of the CBFL divisions' lower 4th seed). Whenever a coach of the CBFL quits, the oldest member of U-Sports-Bloodbowl will have the chance to fill the slot in the CBFL - he just carries his U-Sports team over to the CBFL and renames it with a pun-name of the franchise he is taking over.
- No CBFL-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 draft commissioner MenonaLoco.

Tied playoff games play overtime.
The "NBFL-rejects-rule": At the end of every season, the worst team of each division gets to pick an injured player from the NBFL, that was cut from their roster during the current NBFL season, or the season before (during NBFL offseason it's the last 2 NBFL seasons), 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 and illegal skills are replaced by a "normal" skill of the coaches choice (for example: a Chaos dwarf may be converted into a gutter runner, trading the claw against sidestep).
How to get started in CBFL:
U-Sports-coach takes over an abandoned CBFL-franchise: Change U-sports-team's name to fit the city in the CBFL, no other changes.
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 etc. - he just has to invent a new team name.
Race swap: 1000k for team creation. The coach's new race gets as many skilled players as his former team, but with minimum spp's for the levels. For example, player A of the old race has 50 SPP, Player B of the new race then becomes a 31 SPP player with 3 fresh skill rolls.
"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 will ever get out of this hopeless situation. "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 Case C, described in the previous paragraph.
