  • No players may be dropped, barring players removed from the tour by the hosts. These may be replaced immediately.
  • No players may be picked up post-midseason unless a team drops below the 11 player minimum.

We will be adapting rules from this thread for the majority of our decisions. Please read them and familiarise yourself with them.
