Rule 1. For Season 3 the rule for getting line-ups in will be that line-ups must be submitted within 24 hours after the injuries and suspensions from the last game of the round are posted. Example Round 1 Game 1 - Thurs 12pm Round 1 Game 2 - Friday 12pm Injuries/Suspensions - Friday 1pm Line-ups must be in by Saturday 1pm Most of the time I will likely to do the games for the round back-to-back anyway , however that may not always be possible to do. I allowed for a fairly lengthy pre-season to allow teams to have a look at their players and tactics with post counts coming into effect, so really by now you should have a good idea of what your 1st XI is going to look like. Ideally I would like to do 2 rounds per week, but I won't be able to do that if there are not line-ups there to use. There have been a few occasions during the pre-season I've had time to sim games but there haven't been line-ups. Teams not being bothered to submit line-ups also does remove a motivation for me to bother simming. Rule 2. There shall be punishments, through docked points, for teams that do not meet the deadlines. I am not going to be crazy and just dock points for a first offense or anything like that. People will get a warning first. However, at the end of last season I did say to teams that as well as the President they should appoint someone else to be involved in selection, even if it is just to act as cover. So far that doesn't really seem to have happened. Rule 3. All 1st XI line-ups are to be the best possible line-up for that round. This is to stop teams dropping 1st XI players down to reserves to secure their reserves a better position. Obviously teams are likely to have 11 players who have cemented 1st XI places, so I may feel one fringe player is stronger but the selector feels a different fringe player is stronger and that is fine.
