Current Rule Proposals


This is the list of proposals to be voted on for the 2022 WMFFL season. If you would like to suggest a rule proposal, you may do so on the proposals page. The part of each proposal that appears in Italics is what effect this proposal will have on the ruleset, if passed.

Proposal 2022.1 - Reduce 60 yard FG points Sponsor: Richard Lawson
Status: On Ballot
Reduce the number of points a 60+ yard field goal from 10 pts to 6 pts
Change rule V.B.5.b.iv to read: Made 60+ yards = 6 pts
Proposal 2022.2a - All missed FG get -1 pt Sponsor: Richard Lawson
Status: Rejected, 1-10, 1 Abstain
Make it so that all missed FG get -1 pt. Not just extra points and FGs under 30 yards.
Change rule V.B.5.b.v to read: Missed = -1 pt
Proposal 2022.2b - All missed FG under 50 yards get -1 pt Sponsor: Tom Marsh
Status: On Ballot
Make it so that all missed FG under 50 yuards get -1 pt. Not just extra points and FGs under 30 yards.
Change rule V.B.5.b.v to read: Missed 0-50 yards = -1 pt
Proposal 2022.3 - Game Changing FG points Sponsor: Richard Lawson
Status: Rejected, 3-9
Bonus 5 points if your kicker kicks a field goal that either:
  • Changes the outcome of a game in the last 20 seconds of regulation (e.g. a kick that changes a tie to a win or a loss to a tie/win)
    • If A vs B is tied w 20secs left and A kicks a FG they get bonus 5 points. If B then kicks a field goal to tie with say 4 seconds left they get 5 points. If A then kicks a FG to walkoff in OT they get 5 more points. This is the most extreme example that will hardly ever happen
    • If A is leading B by 4 points and throws a TD with 5 seconds left they go 2 points up and the PAT would not result in a bonus 5 points (going from a win to a win)
  • Is a walk off kick in OT
Add rule V.B.5.c reading:
c. Game Winning and Tying Field Goals
    i. Game winning or tying FG with fewer than 20 seconds left in the game or in overtime = 5 pts
Proposal 2022.4 - Roster Plus IR Limits to 28 Sponsor: Richard Lawson
Status: Passed, 8-3, 1 abstain
At one point Norseman had a squad size of 34. It's too many. I suggest to keep the existing squad size of 25 and keep the existing IR/COVID setup we have but have a rule that the total of the squad + IR/COVID can only be maximum 28. It could be 20 squad and 8 IR/COVID if desired
Add rule IV.C.5 reading:
5. No team may have more the 28 players combined between the IR and active roster.
Proposal 2022.5 - Add a 15th Game to the Season Sponsor: Richard Lawson
Status: Rejected, 5-6, 1 Abstain
As the regular season gets 1 week longer should our season. I think it is worth discussion having a 15 week reg season. I would suggest that the extra game be defined as:

In even number years
Burgundy #1 vs Gold #4
Burgundy #2 vs Gold #3
Burgundy #3 vs White #2
Burgundy #4 vs White #1
Gold #1 vs White #4
Gold #2 vs White #3

In odd number years
Burgundy #1 vs White#4
Burgundy #2 vs White#3
Burgundy #3 vs Gold#2
Burgundy #4 vs Gold#1
White #1 vs Gold#4
White#2 vs Gold#3

In rule I.D change '14 weeks' to '15 weeks'
Proposal 2022.6 - Change voting to 50% + 1 Sponsor: Chris Heywood
Status: On Ballot
Change the threshold needed to pass a new rule to 50% + 1 of the vote
Update rule XII.B to read:
B. If 50% plus one of voting owners approve the proposal then it will become a rule.
Update rule XII.E to read:
E. A rule will be removed from the ballot if 50% of voting owners reject it
