    Currently our rules state that a forfeit can be take in three situations;
    1. Six minutes AFTER OFFICIAL GAME time, if your opponent has NOT requested additional time (five extra minutes),
    2. Eleven minutes AFTER OFFICIAL GAME TIME, if your opponent has not show up with six skaters after requesting additional time
    3. If your opponent messages you declaring his or her team is forfeiting.
    Currently our rules DO NOT allow taking a forfeit outside of those times. We currently have wording whereby if two teams enter a "gentlemen's agreement" which means one team is willing to wait longer for their opponent outside of the timelines listed above, a forfeit cannot be claimed.

    I am currently looking to see if additional wording is required and if we need to modify this rule. Here are the three options for said poll:


    #1 - No Change to the current rule. It remains how it is described above.


    + It allows a bit of flexibility if one team is running late.
    - It handcuffs the team who was ready on time!


    #2 - Add additional wording so that if two teams enter a "Gentleman's Agreement", five additional minutes is granted. If the team who was granted five additional minutes DOES NOT show up on the time, the game is AUTOMATICALLY entered as a forfeit.

    +Allows for flexibility but protects the team who was ready and on time
    -Makes players who were ready on time wait longer


    #3 - Add to the current rules that it is MANDATORY that any game not started by eleven minutes after official game is marked as a forfeit loss for the team who did not show up with six skaters on time.

    +Ensures our timelines are respected and games start on time.
    +Removes the bias from the decision to agree to extra time. There is ZERO additional time after 11+ from game time.
    -Could result in additional forfeits
    -Does make teams who are NOT known to take a forfeit win, have to start taking a forfeit win.

    Waiting for 20 minutes is bad for the league, we have scheduled times for a reason

    If I'm aloud to have a say. I think if a ff happens any where it should not count against the winning team. For ex : if the team my team is playing ff's it shouldn't count against my team's stats. So if we get a ff win that should be it. Not put our players ppg and other stats at 0.

    I like the gentleman's agreement. Especially when a roster players internet or power goes out unexpectedly. I would, however, limit it to only a few hours max. nothing more than 2 hours.

    Number 3 will ensure games are played in a timely manner.

    Frankly, it is all about preparation. Have your guys in the DR at gametime. Have A fwd Def and G on standby as ECU. If players not in the DR 5 after use your ecu.

    I vote option 4. Reschedule every game to where there is no such thing as a forfeit.

    Somewhat similar like to other leagues i.e. kinda like VG? Not a bad idea...I mean the fact that we now have three games on Wednesday.........leaves open a Thursday to play games.

    What if the team that showed up on time has a player that can't play on Thursday? Why should a team that shows up on time be hurt because the other team does not have ECU players on stand by.

    ...This comes back to the agreement - I'm not saying that Thursday night is the designated make up night geez...just saying because we have three games Wednesday, you now not only have F, S, Su, but also Thursday instead of playing that game on another game night.

    I mean if a game is going to be made up then it is understood that both teams have to agree to that time the night of one team not able to play...just makes logistical sense............................

    Why have a schedule? It won't start that way but it will get very bad very fast. Just think about how hard it is for loosing teams to get 6 late in the season. Now add a "we can just make it up" attitude and no games will happen.

    I mean you can put a restriction on when, how many, etc. for those to be done...very easy to do and not effect the “no schedule” mentality either....

    Or leave it how it is, maybe adjust the gentlemanly agreement to allow more leeway.

    If I’m right it was TIL :45 if they agreed upon things and then that changed. But I mean I have been told things before and have completely been told seasons later that it wasn’t a rule...right @O-jay23 haha ;)

    As a previous owner I think having the deadline ar :45 was more then enough time for teams to play their games and get ready for the next one. Games roughly take 20 to 30 min (depending on events that happen in game and if it goes to ot).

    If the rule was to :45 then i say leave it. I always gave a team til :40 unless they asked for extra time then :45. I like others would rather see a game played over a ff.
