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.

2020 Draft Lottery & Draft Order
by: MarkB - Saturday 28 March 2020 - 20:16:36
Under Rule 5, the first four picks in the rookie and free agent drafts are determined by a draft lottery. The lottery will be held Saturday, April 4th and this year includes West Salem, Kentucky, Salem and Cleveland.

The determination determination of the draft order of the first four picks in each round of the draft will use a lottery system using the following state lotteries in the order listed below. The Commissioner will go down the list and match-up the number with the corresponding range of winning lottery numbers to determine the order of the draft. If we get to the bottom of the state lottery list below and do not have the draft order set, we will use the following day’s lottery drawings. Once a team has been assigned a spot in the lottery if their number comes up again they will be skipped.

1. South Carolina Pick 3 – 1pm Midday Drawing
2. Florida Pick 3 – 1:30pm Midday Drawing
3. Virginia Pick 3 – 2pm Day Drawing
4. North Carolina Pick 3 – 3pm Day Drawing
5. South Carolina Pick 3 – 7pm Evening Drawing
6. Florida Pick 3 – 9:45pm Evening Drawing
7. Virginia Pick 3 – 11pm Night Drawing
8. North Carolina Pick 3 – 11:22pm Night Drawing

Draft Lottery results can be found at http://www.smartluck.com/usalotterieslinks.htm or https://www.lotterypost.com/results

Each team will be assigned every fourth number from 000-999 based on their seeded position, and the lottery drawings on a date to be announced in advance will determine the draft order. For example, let's assume Newark is the poorest team. Newark would be assigned the numbers 000-249... Hedonic might be assigned the numbers 250-499... Manchester might be assigned the numbers 500-749...Kendall might be assigned the numbers 750-999.

Now let's assume on the lottery date chosen, the numbers of the actual lottery drawing results for the first four lotteries above were: 773, 113, 919, 632. Thus, the team assigned the number 773 would draft first in this example (Manchester). The team assigned the number 113 (Newark) would draft second. The team assigned the numbers 919 (Manchester) is already drafting first, so we skip those numbers. The team assigned the number 632 is Kendall, so they would draft 3rd. The team drafting 4th must then be Hedonic, under this example.

Based on last season's results and the tie breaker process, the four teams eligible for the lottery picks and the numbers they have been assigned are:
West Seattle: 000-249
Kentucky: 250-499
Salem: 500-749
Cleveland: 750-999


Good luck to all!

The rest of the draft order is:
5 Moline (wins tiebreaker over Black Hills with a better conference record)
6 Black Hills
7 Bay City
8 Inverness
9 Kutztown
10 Seattle (highest strength of victory percentage of teams with 8 wins)
11 Rolling Green
12 Atlanta (lowest strength of victory percentage of teams with 8 wins)
13 Warrington
14 Vancouver
15 Bensalem (higher strength of victory percentage than Alabama)
16 Alabama
17 Tampa Bay
18 Edison
19 Barcelona (higher strength of victory percentage than SW Florida)
20 SW Florida
21 Des Moines
22 Pittsburgh
23 New York
24 Penn St

Lottery For Supplemental Draft Pick
by: MarkB - Saturday 28 March 2020 - 19:55:43
The winning lottery number for March 28 is 811. Therefore TAM gains the supplement pick.

-----------------
by: MarkB - Monday 23 March 2020 - 21:17:11
Per Rule 15.5 - Rewards for Volunteer substitutes.
After the conclusion of the season and before the rookie draft, the commissioner will hold a lottery using the information provided through Rule 15.2. For each game played as a substitute, the member who volunteered will be given one credit. Credits earned will be entered into a random lottery to distribute rookie draft choices given up by teams penalized for non-participation. Rookie draft choices given up by a previous owner through penalty will be retained by the new owner but will be added as supplemental picks in each applicable draft round for the purpose of the non-participation lottery. Example: A number two pick in the second round (draft choice 2.2) forfeited by a previous owner will be retained by the new owner. The penalized pick will be added to the round as pick 2.25. If no rookie draft picks were forfeited, the league will award a supplemental 5th round rookie draft pick, the final pick of the 5th round, using the process described above (this pick is not tradable).

No Rookie Draft Picks were forfeited in 2019, so a lottery will be held for a pick at the end of the 5th round in the 2020 Rookie Draft. The teams earning "credits" in 2019 were:
BAY-1
CLE-1
DES-2
EDI-1
INV-1
RGG-3
SAL-1
TAM-4
WAR-1

The lottery will be held Saturday, March 28, using the Wisconsin Lottery Pick 3 game. https://wilottery.com/lottogames/pick3.aspx. These teams have been assigned the following lottery numbers for the drawing:
BAY 001-066
CLE 067-132
DES 133-264
EDI 265-330
INV 331-396
RGG 397-594
SAL 595-660
TAM 661-924
WAR 925-990
000, and 991-999 will be ignored. If the winning number is one of those, the will will then use the March 29 drawing.
