During the regular season, to break a game tie, the owners can either settle it with a knife fight 
or use the Reserve Roster Rules, which ever is agreed upon by both teams. Using Reserve Roster Rules,
the highest scoring player from each bench is used. If they tie, it goes to the second highest on each 
bench, on so on. If still a tie, the knife fight will be the only way the game won't be scored a tie.

During the playoffs, Reserve Roster Rules are automatically in effect. If still a tie, the only way to
break the tie is two 3-minute rounds of bare-knuckle boxing, a one-on-one downhill mountain bike race, or
Playoff Tie Rules, which ever is agreed upon by both teams. Using Playoff Tie Rules, the two players with 
the most cumulative points on each team will have their total points used to break the tie. If still a tie,
top 3 players, then 4, and so on.

In either case, alternate player's points are used only to break ties and do not count towards the total

The tie breakers for the regular season standings go in the following order:
	1.  Record vs opponent.
	2.  Divisional record.
	3.  Total points.
	4.  Coin flip or what ever game of random chance both owners agree to.

In case there is a three way tie and no one team has the tie-breaker over 
the other two, The following complicated formula will be used to break the
tie: (each team means each team that is involved in the tie)

   6*(Each team you've beaten head to head) 
+  3*(Each team you split with)
+  4*(Each team that you have a better division record than)
+  2*(Each team that you have the same division record as) 
+  (Total Points / 100)

1. If your roster is not called in by the deadline, the roster from the previous week will be used.  
2. Trading is permitted all season. Trade can only take place if neither team has been eliminated yet. 
3. All trades must be approved by the commissioner or put to a vote. 
4. Once you trade away a player, you cannot re-acquire that player until at least 4 weeks later. 
5. Waiver moves, except as noted below, end the last week of the regular season. 
6. Waiver pick  order is based on points against the previous week. The team that had the most points
   scored against them gets the first pick. 

Waiver picks will be allowed during the play-offs to replace players that are
injured based on the following rules:
1. No trades.
2. Player dropped must be on NFLIR or listed as out, doubtful, or questionable.
3. Player picked up must be same position as player dropped.
4. Players dropped are out for the season. (cannot be picked up by anyone later)
5. Draft order is based on final regular season standings and points.
