The BDFL will gather in August for Genuine Draft Night 2017, the league's biggest and brightest night

Oh what a night, late August back in '95

AUDUBON – The BDFL has a rich history steeped in tradition. It all began on a hot summer night in late August of 1995 is an attic room on Edgewood Boulevard in Homewood, Alabama. Oh what a night. With two years of experience in the minors, Iron Hand sought to create a new league. He summoned eight of his closest allies for the league's inaugural draft night. Did I mention it was hot? Seven representatives showed up and one joined via a direct phone line. Team names were selected (or assigned), the league's simple rules were laid out and the first players were selected into the newly established Big Daddy Football League (BDFL). On this historic night, the following teams were also founded to launch the fledgling league: Green Springs Grenades, Black Creek Wooden Warriors, Capital City Bullets, Fairfield PowerSleds, Magic City Mayors, Brookside Dogs, Riverchase Cheetahs and the Hueytown Hummers. The Wizards of Greystone would be added a year later and the league has fielded 21 different teams over the last 23 years. See if you can name them all for bonus points. Some couldn't cut the mustard, while others have been left out and invited back into the mix. All in all, it's been a heck of a ride and I can't wait to kick-off another year of the BDFL. And I felt a rush like a rolling bolt of thunder, spinning my head around and taking my body under...Oh What A Night. A true classic by the Four Seasons.

Progressive Priority Draft process will kick-off GDN17

TITLETOWN - Based on the success of the last three seasons, the BDFL will once again follow the league's patented PPD format for drafting players this season. The PPD formula has had its skeptics, but when the most vocal detractors are making it to the Big Daddy Bowl, there is no denying the effectiveness of the PPD process. All teams are required to submit their proposed 16 player "priority" roster by position knowing all other teams will be doing the same. All teams are guaranteed to land their 2017 Pony Draft pick and any other players they value more than any other team in this unique process.

The all-forgiving RICKA Rule to run through Week 2

TITLETOWN - RICKA is an acronym used in the BDFL for a player who has been Released, Injured, Cut, Kicked-Off, or Arrested. The RICKA Rule allows all teams to drop such a player taken during the annual Genuine Draft Night and replace him with an undrafted player with no questions asked. Rickey Williams is the league's poster child for the RICKA Rule beating out Lawrence Phillips in a very close race. The RICKA Rule has traditionally only been good through Week 1, but the compassionate Commissioner of the BDFL, Iron Hand, has extended the rule through Week 2 this season.
