New Rules

Effective Season 19 and forward Cobb World will now be enforcing the following rules to ensure that fun and fair play is the normal in the league. Please read and understand them.

1. All owners will be expected to treat all other owners with courtesy and respect. Failure to do so will put an owners place in the league up for review. This includes world and trade chats, and any other interactions owners have between each other.

2. All franchises will be expected to meet a minimum level of competitiveness. There will be a win floor of 55 games for one season, 115 games for two consecutive seasons. Failure to meet this minimum win level will put an owners place in the league up for review.

3. All franchises will be expected to maintain their minor leagues to a minimum standard. A .300 average win percentage across the board for all minor league teams should be maintained. 0(0)pitchers and pitchers playing positions will not be tolerated. Failure to meet this goal will put an owners place in the league up for review.

Failure to meet these goals does not guarantee that an owner will be removed from the league, just be put up for review. The review will consist of the commissioner asking the rest of the league their opinions, and if a majority feel the offending owner should be removed then the commissioner will act to do so.

Depending on the situation the owner will be either given a warning or asked to leave the league at seasons end. If the violation is extreme enough the owner will be removed immediately.
