I am forming a new online fantasy indoor football league:
It's kinda like Josh Stein's Onilne Indoor Football League, but something different.
The league website is:
The rules of the game are:
Rules of the Game
Here you are assigned a random Arena Football League team.
Just for an example (not the official assignment), your team is the Austin Wranglers and the Kenosha Barons are the Chicago Rush. Your sponsor's final score for the week automatically transfers to your IIFL team.
For instance, your team plays the Kenosha Barons this week. Letís say the Wranglers play the Dallas Desperados this weekend and the Rush plays the Columbus Destroyers. The Wranglers beat the Desperados with a final score of 49(wranglers) Ė 35 while the Rush LOSE to the Destroyers 69 Ė 54(rush) That makes the outcome of the Barons vs. your would-be team game: 54 Ė 49, with the Barons taking home the win in the IIFL.
In the event your sponsor team has a bye week, you automatically take whoever your competitor is playing that week in the sponsor league. Again for example: Barons (Rush) vs. your team (Wranglers) BUT the RUSH have a bye week. The Wranglers are playing the New Orleans VooDoo. The Barons now depend on the outcome of THAT game to fill in their IIFL schedule requirements. Meaning that for this particular week, the Barons are sponsored by the VooDoo.
Again, I would like to emphasise that the example assignments are just examples, your actual AFL sponsor may be different.
Top eight teams in league go to playoffs (if we reach 10 or more)
FIRST ROUND: #8 plays #1, #7 plays #2, #6 plays #3, #5 plays #4.
SECOND ROUND: Highest remaining seed plays lowest remaining seed, second highest plays second-lowest
INTERNET BOWL: Second-round winners meet.
Sponsorships: If the IIFL playoff team's sponsor is in the ArenaBowl playoffs, they get to keep that team. If not, they are temporarily assigned a new one not being used by a playoff team. This goes on for the next few rounds.
At the end of the season, all teams will have the option of whether to keep their Arena League sponsor, or opt to be assigned a new one not being used.
And donít forget, this is a MANAGEMENT game, so the league may throw some things in your way during the season to see how well you respond to rapid change. Injury reports, league disciplinary actions against your players and the loss of a key coaching member are all things you will have to deal with throughout the season.
So, does that make you want to join? If so, here's what you do:
Join the League and OWN YOUR OWN TEAM!
To get started, you will need to choose a city, a team name, and a logo. (It might help to build a freewebs website, like the previous league one)
Anyway, let's get to business.
*The Internet Indoor Football League is not an actual football league.

There are no fees to participate, we just need you to hold up your end of the bargain and participate all season long.
