>Rules vary league to league. That's why most serious leagues have a Constitution.
Understood and agreed.
>In any case, most leagues also fall under "whatever is not forbidden is allowed" maxim.
>That is to say, you don't need an explicit rule to do something, something like "You may trade with

>"you cannot trade with teams past a certain date." Make sense?
