Question Of The Day
Q: Does the IWFL fine players for things like being ejected from a game etc?
A: No. If a player is ejected (or does something else that results in a grievance) the Diciplinary and Protest Committee may recommend a fine be assessed to the team business, but it is not assessed to the player.
Some teams have chosen to recover the cost from the player that caused the fine, but this is not a league policy and varies from team to team.
Q: Why does the league decide not to renew some teams?
A: Each team delegate and team is reviewed annually. If a team has shown it is not able to maintain the high operating standards required for membership, the delegate and team may not be renewed. Delegates also may not be renewed if they show they are not operating honestly and with the best interest of the sport (players, teams, and league) in mind. In almost all cases the decision not to renew a team membership is in no way a reflection on the players. It is always unfortunate that they are caught in the middle when a team owner/delegate doesn't honor their commitments.

Q: What is Sixxes football, I've heard of it but what is it?
A: Sixxes is basically six man football. Six man is played in the U.S. and Canada by small town high schools. Six man was invented in 1934 to give small town schools a version of football they could play with small rosters. The IWFL adjusted a few of the playing rules in 2005 to make the game even less expensive and more accessible to play. That version is sixxes.

Q: How do I submit a question for "Question Of The Day"?
A: Simply send "IWFL" a message with your question.
Q: What is a team Delegate?
A: A team IWFL Delegate is your team's IWFL representative (usually your team's owner or GM) for the territory. They hold your team's membership in the league and are responsible for making sure the team operates within the standards outlined by the IWFL. The Delegate is also the players first point of contact for the IWFL. If ever you either can't reach your Delegate or are not comfortable speaking to your Delegate about something, you may contact the IWFL office directly to have your concern resolved.
