Prizes

As this is a charity league and your donations go directly to our supported charities there are no cash prizes for the Warrior Bowl.   However due to the support of our partners there will be NFL and Fantasy Football swag up for grabs.  Further details of the prizes will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Commissioner

Intervention

We wish to intervene as little as possible and let everyone enjoy the season, but we will if and when required to maintain the integrity of the league.

During the draft if your timer expires you will receive an auto-picked player.  However, if you time out during the first round then we will assume you are a no show, meaning we will remove you from the league and replace you.

If you time out twice during the rest of the draft we also reserve the right to remove you from the league and replace you.

Please download the Sleeper app and turn draft notifications on, this will then let you know when its your turn to pick.

 

During the season if you miss setting your lineup twice then we reserve the right to remove you from the league.

 

Trades will be processed immediately with no veto, however if you have concerns about a trade in your division please notify us asap and we will review.  We will only take action in the event of clear and obvious collusion.

 

We must be notified within 1 hour of any accidental roster moves and obvious accidents will be fixed. Please tag the commissioner in your league chat or DM on twitter.

 

Should circumstances or problems arise that are not covered in the rules the commissioners reserve the right to take whatever action deemed necessary in the best interests of the league and all decisions will be final.
