The Tournament is being played on PS4. Any Standard controller can be used.
Players will be allowed to use any of the 32 NFL teams (Latest UP TO DATE ROSTERS Preexisting Injuries Off). You do not have to use the same team throughout the tournament. Players will be allowed to use the same teams within a game.

If a player in a particular bracket round decides to not play their game for what ever reason, the remaining player will then be automatically advanced to the next bracket round.
21 PT MERCY RULE:
There is a (21) point mercy rule in place until the final Championship game. If either player gains a lead of 21 or more points, the game is ended with the player leading declared the winner.
Once the losing player is down 21, that player will be given one more chance to score on the next position. If the losing player does not score, the game is then called.
NO TAKE OVER TEAMS:
No player will be allowed to pass their spot in the tournament to another player for what ever reason. If a player can not finish their games, they will forfeit and the next player in that bracket gets awarded a win and moves on.
Our tournament default view is MADDEN or CLASSIC View. Each player can agree to one particular view before the game but that view must remain the same all the way throughout the game. If players cannot agree to a particular view then players will flip a coin to decide view.
CHEATING OR INFRACTION:
If during the tournament you feel your opponent is cheating or a serious infraction has been committed against you, then put the game on pause and stand up and call over a tournament official. The tournament official will assist you in addressing the issue.
CUSTOM PLAYBOOK AND CREATED PLAYS ARE NOT ALLOWED.
No excessive screen toggling will be allowed during snap of ball or before a FG or punt. Abuse of this rule will result in loss of one time out or in case of FG situation automatic 3 points awarded. If you feel this rule is being abused, put the game on pause and call over a tournament official. If you allow the snap of the ball, you live with the outcome.
