Inactive Owners Face Stiffer Penalties

Owners who are accustomed to lineup failures will now have to pay a bigger penalty. In addition to the previous rules where a club pays the cost for a late lineup with their boxscore and budget earnings. Starting in 2015, if a BSL club has 3 missed weeks (late lineup during a match week in progress does not count) they will be subtracted $10 as a budget penalty. If it grows to 5 missed weeks the penalty increases to an additional $10 penalty and the BSL club will fall to last in the next season draft order. “Clubs who take an early offseason when out of contention or planning for a higher draft pick by falling down the standings will think twice with the addition of this rule. The integrity of the post season races depends on participation” -Commissioner.
