League Sanctions (possible dismissal from league)


For both game lateness and CM lateness penalties, in the event that you do not own the pick you are penalized you will be penalized your next highest pick (either yours or one obtained in a trade).  If you do not own your 1st round pick (or one better) you will be penalized a roster spot at the 23-man cut and will not be permitted to claim any rookies.  Penalization occurs at the 23-man cut, so any picks obtained up to that point are fair game to satisfy the penalty.

3B. Penalties for Overusage
3a.
At the end of the each block any player that has reached their 105% AB/IP usage limit will be declared ineligible for the remainder of the season and will be demoted to the minors.  Additionally, at the end of the season the following penalties will be assessed to each team:

AB/IP Overusage (per player)-
up to 105% = No penalty
more than 105%  but not over 107% = Player is ineligible for use in the playoffs
more than 107% but not over 110% = Immediate forfeiture of the overused player
more 110% = Immediate forfeiture of the overused player plus forfeiture of a roster spot for the subsequent season

3b. If you have more than 4 players that violate the overusage rules (more than 105% usage) you will be subject to further discipline and possible removal as a manager.  REMEMBER, the 5% extra usage is meant to be used as a buffer, when you get up near those limits it is time to seriously consider shutting a guy down or you will have to pay the price if you go beyond that limit.
