Everyone will pick a team to be. There are 32 teams, so there will 32 players. (We'll get 4 reserve players.) Everyone will play a 16 game regular season. It will be the exact same schedule as the NFL season, so whatever team you pick determines your schedule.
Everyone will have their own home field, so let me know what your home field is. (Tell me what map and setting you want. Let's make everything sequential with all troops being deployed automatically. If you don't specify, your settings will be Escalating, Chained, and Sunny.) You will have 8 games on your home field and 8 games on your opponent's home field. Who makes the playoffs will be determined in the same manner as the NFL. (http://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakingprocedures) Each division winner will make the playoffs and 2 wild card teams from each conference. That makes 12 teams in the playoffs. The top two teams in each conference will have a bye in the first round of the playoffs.
We will play two weeks at a time. As soon as week one is over, we will start the games in week three and so on. You need two slots to play, so Freemiums can join, but this is the NFL, you have to have a rating of at least 1600 to play.
