*+1 pt / sack

Voted at 2013 draft, online poll to agree scoring The CBS scoring appears to not differentiate between forced and recovered fumbles that occur on defense versus special teams. If correct forcing and recovering a fumble on special teams would score two points (+1 for each) for the defense, but a blocked field goal returned for a TD would not score for the defense (as current rules).
Scoring be adjusted for special teams so that safeties and touchdowns scored from blocked field goals and punts count as positive scores for the owner of the defense 2014 Draft Pending CBS system supporting the score
Prohibit the trading of supplemental draft picks until the after the roster cutdown date 2014 Draft
Limit the trading of draft picks to the upcoming draft only 2014 Draft

2014 Draft Agreements

  1. The current system of 6-8 protects with up to two rounds of supplemental picks will be retained through the 2016 draft to give time for owners to assess the system
  2. If an owner leaves the league and has traded away draft picks then some form of compensation will be provided to the new owner. It was felt that it would not be possible to create a system that could cater for all scenarios and therefore the compensation will be decided as and when this occurs.
