- It’s been a while, SFL Nation! The last two weeks have been a whirlwind. I’ve been building a consistent schedule of phases in which to execute on playbooks, broadcasts and responsibilities more efficiently now that we have 22 teams, 11 games, over 600 plays total in SFL and SFLm and plenty of challenges in keeping everything running smoothly. I believe we’ve found a rhythm, which will allow us to start building on unfinished or wanted projects for the future.
- A shout out to parity for just a moment. Nine teams have one loss – two of them play each other tonight (Vancouver and Queen City) so we’ll enter Week 5 in an eight-way tie for first at 3-1. That is pretty insane! The competition – as expected – has never been more fierce. After seven games last week were decided by 7 points or less, four more games this week have hit that mark.
- All Week 4 games will be available on YouTube Tuesday morning. I apologize for the delay. If coaching staffs need access to film before then, please tag me in your coaches channel to let me know which games you need access to early.
- I have meeting openings Tuesday-Friday this week, light on Tuesday as I’ll be out of the office getting my first haircut since the headquarters move, getting the dog groomed and a much-needed bath, picking up a weedeater because the one I have is just not going to cut it (literally) – you know – normal people stuff! Please schedule an appointment with me if you need me, if you just want to chat about the SFL or if you just want to build a rapport with the boss man!
- TUE – 10:00-11:00 am CT
- WED – 5:00-7:00 pm CT
- THU – 11:00 am-12:00 pm CT / 5:00-6:00 pm CT
- FRI – 11:00 am-1:00 pm CT / 4:00-6:00 pm CT

- P.S. – We had a power outage during a game this week for the first time since league headquarters moved from San Antonio. The following is league policy regarding power outages or xbox game freezes mid-game:
- If a game freeze or power outage halts game progress in the first half, the game will be rescheduled either for later that day, or for a future date – regardless of score.
- If a game freeze or power outage halts game progress in the second half, it’s at the Commissioner’s discretion whether the game is rescheduled or counted as a completed, shortened game.
- Factors include score margin, when in the week the game was played – and the difficulty of making it up without interrupting the weekly schedule – how late in the season the game is and what a final score might mean to a late-season playoff race.
- If the game was on TV, it will not be made up on TV, but on a league channel.
