The Process Of Handing Down Penalties, Suspensions & Sanctions:
Games are monitored in the league’s officiating command center via Xbox Live Parties, Madden 13 App, forum/blog comments & posted game videos. Any videos, particularly ones that draw complaints that the observer on XBL thinks might be penalizable fouls are logged.
Players who feel violations occurred versus them must present the formal complaint to the officiating executives in a private party on Xbox Live.
What other people also report on similar incidents is certainly taken into consideration very much; they are the ones that play them on a regular basis. We will make a note on all complaints regarding similar incidents if it is an egregious foul
Before week advancement, the Commissioners evaluate every complaint, particularly those marked for possible discipline.
Commissioners will meticulously go through the videos and give their opinion to whether they think a discipline foul has occurred. Then will go through what rule was violated and recommend what the discipline should be.
Commissioners give both sides (if there is 2 sides) a chance to give their case before they issue a fine or a suspension.
Upon final decision on penalty, the league announces any discipline.
All people who incur draft penalties, during the draft must select the worst player on the draft board at the time of the pick.
