ONCE WE HAVE A TEAM REPRESENTING EACH CITY, IT’S TUFF CUP PLAYOFF TIME! THIS TWO DAY EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE IN JANUARY, WHERE ON THE FIRST DAY, ALL THE TEAMS WILL PLAY ONE ANOTHER IN A ROUND ROBIN STYLE FORMAT TO DETERMINE THE PLAYOFF SEEDING. THE NEXT DAY, THE PLAYOFFS BEGIN. LOSE ONCE AND YOU’RE OUT. WIN IT ALL AND PREPARE YOURSELF TO BE CROWNED THE TUFF CUP CHAMPIONS. THE ULTIMATE FLAG FOOTBALL TEAM.
FOLLOWING THE FALL SEASON OF EACH LEAGUE YEAR, THE CAPTAIN OF ANY TEAM THAT HAS WON A TITAN CUP PLAYOFF GAME DURING THE LEAGUE YEAR MAY SUBMIT A ROSTER OF ELIGIBLE PLAYERS TO GET ACCESS INTO THE TUFF CUP QUALIFIER. THE TUFF CUP ELIGIBILITY IS PUT IN PLACE TO KEEP ALL ROSTERS HONEST. MANAGING A ROSTER IN TUFF LEAGUE WILL DEFINITELY TAKE SOME AWARENESS. THIS IS WHERE THE GREAT CAPTAINS WILL SHINE. TO BECOME TUFF CUP ELIGIBLE, HERE ARE THE REQUIREMENTS:
WITHIN THE LEAGUE YEAR, A PLAYER MUST HAVE BEEN ROSTERED TO THE TEAM FOR AT LEAST TWO SEASONS OR THE EQUIVALENT OF ONE SEASON AND TWO TOURNAMENTS WITH THAT TEAM.
IF A PLAYER QUALIFIES FOR MULTIPLE TEAMS AND IS SUBMITTED ON MULTIPLE ROSTERS, THE MOST RECENT TEAM THE PLAYER WAS ROSTERED TO WILL HAVE PRIORITY. HOWEVER, THE PLAYER WILL HAVE THE FINAL DECISION ON WHICH TEAM HE WISHES TO REPRESENT. THE FORMER TEAM MAY REPLACE THE PLAYER WITH ANYONE ELIGIBLE.
EACH TEAMS TUFF CUP ROSTER MUST HAVE A MAXIMUM OF 38 STARS.
THE GOAL OF TUFF LEAGUE HAS BEEN TO CREATE THE FIRST EVEER NATIONAL FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE. THE NATIONAL ERA IS A LEAGUE BASED PRODUCT THAT WILL ACCUMULATE A TEAMS BODY OF WORK OVER AN ENTIRE YEAR! THAT IS THE ULTIMATE FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE!
THE TUFF STAR SYSTEM PLAYERS WILL ONLY BE APPLIED TO THE FINAL TUFF CUP PLAYOFF ROSTER.
PLAYERS WILL BE EVALUATED ON THREE CRITERIA’S:
PERFORMANCE: AN EVALUATION OF STATS AND PLAYMAKING ABILITIES WITH COMPETITION IN CONSIDERATION.
TALENT: AN EVALUATION OF ATHLETICISM AND FLAG FOOTBALL IQ
CHEMISTRY: AN EVALUATION AS A TEAMMATE AND OF ATTITUDE IN RESPECT TO ADDING OR TAKING AWAY FROM A TEAMS OVERALL VALUE.
TALENT AND PERFORMANCE HAVING EQUAL WEIGHT AND RELIANCE ON EACH OTHER WHILE CHEMISTRY IS USED AS A FINAL DETERMINING FACTOR. PERCENTAGES WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE NUMBER OF TITAN TEAMS IN THE MOST CURRENT SEASON.
