We are proposing to enforce the Minimum Win Requirement rule for this season, as outlined in the Private World Rules section : http://www.whatifsports.com/HBD/Pages/Correspondence/PrivateWorldRules.aspx
Since we had to go public to fill, there will be a slight modification for the 55 win rule in the first season: a review committee will be established to look at any team that fails to win 55 games. If it's determined that the owner(s) made a good faith effort to meet the MWR, then they'll be allowed to stay. If it's determined that the owner(s) had the means to win 55, but failed to do so they will be asked to leave.
