    Default DISCUSSION: Section I: The League

    For each of these sections, I will include one or more suggestions for where we should go, and sometimes specific wording, in the first post. Please do not take that as a disinvitation to make suggestions going a different direction. On the contrary, we need to bounce around as many ideas as we can. Also, while we will be voting on a full section at a time, we can divide them into subvotes as needed for controversial sections.

    I. The League

    The Front Office Football League (hereafter referred to as FOFL) consists of 32 franchises, full owners, numerous minority owners, and official vultures. The league will use Front Office Football 2004 as its simulation engine, and the structure of the league shall be as mandated by the game.

    Notes: This is intended mainly as just a little introduction. On the off chance stuff like division name/alignment becomes editable in the future, it also gives us a place to ammend. Same with the version.

    As this is largely harmless and has had little discussion, it will go to vote almost immediately after all sections of the constitution have been posted (for the record, there are 13 sections in total, and I'm getting one up per day).

    Sort of an esoteric point, but the "FOFL" really only "consists" of the franchises. The league and the franchises are run by the owners, etc. You wouldn't hear anyone say that the NFL consists of its franchises, players, coaches, owners and referees. The league is the collection of franchises.

    Also, I don't really care, but if we specify "Front Office Football 2004" as the sim engine, then we have to amend the constitution if we ever want to upgrade. It is possible we just want to say that "Front Office Football" is the simulation engine.

    No, I specifically intended that point, for the constitution to have to be amended if we upgrade. Not that I think it'll be an issue, as I would be stunned if Jim's games were importable.

    And as for the first part...whatever. We're a community more than we are a league.
