Welcome to the KRFL website.
The Knute Rockne Football League was founded in 2001 by Jim Doyle, who served with distinction as our first commissioner thru mid-2003. The KRFL is a 24-team league that simulates the NFL using the Action PC Football game available from Dave Koch Sports (dksports.com). We have our own rookie draft, our own free agency, and our own salary cap and player retention system. Our 24 members have many diverse interests, but they share one common bond, the love of NFL football. For further information or to apply for membership, contact the KRFL commissioner.

I just noticed the rolled the update back to 9-13-21.
So if you downloaded the 9-14-21 version, Please download the 9-13-21 version and install it. There must have been an issue with the 9-14-21 version.

Game Update & Week 2 Games Due 10pm Eastern September 21
by: MarkB - Tuesday 14 September 2021 - 21:20:00
A NEW GAME UPDATE has been posted to the League Files section of the league website. It is version "9-7-2021"
PLEASE DOWNLOAD THIS FILE & EXTRACT IT TO YOUR PROGRAMS (X86) FOLDER BEFORE PLAYING YOUR WEEK 2 GAME.
Everyone MUST install this. If you don't and your opponent did, you are likely to encounter problems playing your game.
It Automatically activates players returning from an injury and corrects error entering special teams players via the lineup screen.

According to DKSports, they will be releasing it to the general public this week.
So while I am told it is the same, you will none-the-less need to download and extract it as soon as it is available. I will make an announcement when I see it.

Great job for a smooth week #1 everyone. Keep it up. The two conferences split the 12 inter-conference games 6-6. Home teams also went 6-6.

The week #2 league file has been posted on the website in the League Files section.
Please remember to e-mail the games results and box score to BOTH me and the KRFL Google Group.
To send your game file, please follow these instructions: http://www.aaroncraneinstitute.com/football/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?12186

A reminder of our rules for scheduling games:
Initial contact between members for the upcoming week's games should be made prior to midnight Thursday of the current week. Game times should be agreed upon and scheduled by midnight Friday to be considered as good faith attempts to schedule a game. Because the time difference limits times available to play games, it is extremely important to communicate with your opponent as soon as possible when one of the team owners is in Europe and the other is in North America.

Trading is open until the deadline for week #6 games.

"Play To Win, But Have Fun Doing It"

2021 Season Kick's Off! Week 1 games Due Tuesday Sept. 14 at 10pm Eastern
by: MarkB - Tuesday 07 September 2021 - 21:02:45
Welcome to the start of the 2021 KRFL Regular Season, KRFL's 21st season. There is some VERY IMPORTANT information in this message. PLEASE READ this ENTIRE MESSAGE.

Coach's Files
Despite numerous reminders (frustratingly) I did not receive a coach file from Atlanta, Kentucky, Moline, New York, or Penn State. So, I let the game generate the lineups and depth chart.

Game Version
Before you play any games, please verify you have the 6/23/2021 version of the game. In the game go to Help, About. If yours is not this version, go to http://www.dksports.com/service.htm, download and install that version.

Week #1 League File
The Week #1 League file can be found in the League Files section of the website.
Results are due Tuesday, September 14 at 10pm Eastern.

Submitting Game Results
Send the games results and box score (the “.xbx” file generated by the game and the “.htm” game box score) to BOTH the commissioner AND to the KRFL Google Group e-mail (KRFL@googlegroups.com). A game summary/write-up would be appreciated and adds to the fun of the league.
PLEASE use the following process:
1. Click on Export, then Games.
2. Double click on the game in the left side box you wish to export. This should put an asterisk by the game selected.
3. Under export folder make sure you save the file somewhere where you know you can find it.
4. Click on Begin Export to export the game.
It will export the game using the format Week #_Visitor_Score_Home_Score.XBX. That is the format I need or the file cannot be imported. Do not create the export file any other way.
Attach that file to your email and send it to me and the league.
Putting into a .zip file before you send it is fine.

Weekly Reporting Deadline
The deadline for reporting game results is normally TUESDAY evenings at 10PM EASTERN USA time. THIS DEADLINE WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. I do NOT want to have to sim games. With this Tuesday deadline, the new league files should be released no later than 9am Eastern Wednesday morning, and will most like be available by 1am Eastern Wednesday.

Protocol for Scheduling Games
Please see Rule 15 in the League Rules, a summary of which is:
Since the weekly schedule is available both on the website and in the game, initial contact between members for the upcoming week's games should be made prior to midnight Thursday of the current week. Game times should be agreed upon and scheduled by midnight Friday to be considered as good faith attempts to schedule a game. Good faith attempts at scheduling require two emails and a minimum of three possible suggested game times. Note: When contacting an opponent, please use private email so that your message isn't sent to the entire league. E-mail addresses are readily available in the game file.

If you've emailed your opponent twice with a minimum of three suggested game times, AND you haven't received ANY reply, you may seek a substitute by posting on the league website or by posting an email via the KRFL Google group. This leaves a public record available to the Commissioner in case of disputes. If a member seeking a substitute gets multiple offers to sub, they should sort volunteers accordingly:
a. First choice should be a player from another conference.
b. Second choice should be a player from another division in the same conference.
c. Last choice should be a player from the same division.

Game Play
Just a reminder of some of our KRFL rules for games:
• No limits on onside kicks, hurry up, or slow down offenses.
• We follow 2020 NFL rules.
Starting this season, a 45 second play clock is used.
All games are to be played head-to-head over the internet. The home team typically will host the game but that is not required. The hosting team is required to submit the game results to the Commissioner.

Hamachi
Though I've never used it, so I cannot confirm it is still available, DK Sports has created a Hamachi "League Lobby" for KRFL.
To log on, use the following in Hamachi:
Network Name: Knute Rockne Football League
Network Id: 338-199-859
Password: krfl

Users will need the HamachiLogMeIn client installed on their computer to use the networks. This is a free download: https://www.vpn.net/
The free Hamachi client allows users to connect with up to 5 others users.

Free Agent Claims
Post free agent claims at http://www.aaroncraneinstitute.com/football/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewforum.php?45.
Players signed as free agent are NOT retained after the season, and will have a salary of $0.5 million this season. The salary of the player you release continues to count against your salary cap.
All waiver claim free agent must meet the Tuesday at 10pm Eastern game reporting deadline to be considered valid for the next week's games.

Trading Period Open
The Trading Period is now open and will remain open until the Week #6 Reporting Deadline (October 19, 2021).

Team Logo’s, Home Fields and Coach's pictures
I have posted the 2021 team logo file, team home fields files and the Coach's pictures files in the "Misc. Files" link on the home page. You can find the link in the upper left hand corner of the home page and/or http://www.aaroncraneinstitute.com/football/miscfiles/
Save each file to your computer, then:
Team Logos File - Extract the contents of the file, just as you would the weekly league file, to your dksports\football\TeamLogos folder
Team Fields File - Extract the contents of the file, just as you would the weekly league file, to your dksports\football\Stadiums folder
Coach's Pictures File - Extract the contents of the file, just as you would the weekly league file, to your dksports\football\PlayerPhotos folder

------------------------------
Lets have another fun and competitive KRFL season. If you have any questions, please post it in the forums on the league website or send me an email.
