My job as Commissioner is to look out for the world and make
decisions popular or not that I feel is in the best interest of the world. I apologize
because I should have done this last season. With that being said I have come
to a decision with the assistance of part of the world committee. Please see the new rules below. Any questions please let me know. Thanks, Toby (tmfran)
1)Minimum win rule. Every team must win 120 games
in back to back seasons starting now (season2). So if you win 50 in year 2,
you'd have to win 70 or more in year three or any combination that gives up 120
wins over any consecutive seasons. Each owner gets one appeal. If an owner
fails to meet the 120 win mark in back to back seasons they can appeal one time
to the committee to stay in the world. The committee will review the team /
owner and see if they should get a second chance. * the only team that is exempt from starting this season is The NY Islanders, due to the fact that they were a replacement owner and took over a team in a really bad situation. They will start in season 3*
2)A world committee will be set up by the commish.
It will be made up of 4 owners, 2 from the AL and 2 from the NL. The committee
will vote on rules violations as well as admission to the world if / when
vacancies occur. In case of a voting tie, then the commish will cast the tie
breaking vote. If a committee member quits or gets kicked out, then the commish
will appoint a replacement committee member.
If the commish quits or gets kicked out,
then the committee will appoint a new commish.
3)All owners are expected to keep their minors
stocked, to avoid fatigue problems. Above all the owners will be held to the
WIS HBD fair play rules.
The committee is made up of Vancouver and Charlotte in the
NL. The help wanted sign is still up for the AL.
