Sunday Tipoff Timeframes, Make Special Request

How to Submit

We are now using a simple commenting system to handle both (1) posting your team’s weekly special tipoff request, and (2) reporting player overlaps. This way, anyone can see your request in real-time (upon approval by the league office, not when you submitted the comment), as well as by the league office itself when building the weekly schedule. Please note, each week the special tipoff requests from the previous or older weeks will be deleted. Also, once a player overlap has been logged onto our spreadsheet and displayed on the SCHEDULE/SCORES page, we will delete the comment.

In the field, “Type your comment here”…


Type in your Special Request as follows…

[date of game in question]
[division]: [team name]
[earliest tipoff]-[latest tipoff]
[reason for request]
[number of players affected]

Here is an example:

aaa-e: Poorcats
Some players out of town, arriving at airport 4p.
2 players affected

NOTE: Everything is in terms of tipoffs. For example, if your team is only specifically available between the hours of 9:30AM to 1:30PM, which means you must leave the gym at 1:30PM, then your last available tipoff is 12:30PM and you should enter “930a-1230p” on the last line.

Also, omission of the reason and number of players affected may result in rejection of the request.


Each team AND player gets up to two overlaps that we can try to avoid each week for free. If a player is on more than two teams, or if a team has more than three overlaps, then you may pay $5 to guarantee that the 3rd one is not overlapped. Type in your Player Overlap as follows…

[player’s full name]
[higher division team’s division]: [higher division team’s name]
[lower division team’s division]: [lower division team’s name]

Here is an example:

LeBron James
AL: Prodigies
aaa-e: Poorcats

NOTE: Once player overlap is reported, we will post it with the usual information next to the schedule table on the SCHEDULE/SCORES page. It will then be deleted from this page.

Any errors or omissions can result in the league office not getting the correct data, as well as obvious delays.


Why is there a fee for special requests? Because the special requests pile up and become a burden on the scheduler. However, in Dream League we still want you to have the ability to maximize your roster potential, so we will not be like other leagues and force you to a rigid window of time.
What if I don’t or can’t pay the $5 processing fee? Your request will be rejected unless it is paid for.
Does reporting a player overlap incur a fee? Each player AND team gets a maximum of 2 player overlaps per week for free. You may request avoidance of a 3rd or more overlap, but successfully avoiding a 3rd or more overlap incurs a $5 fee.
Why would I want to login with my Facebook account? Maybe your team communicates by Facebook. If so, your special request will be put on your wall for your teammates to see.
Why would I want to login with my Twitter account? Your special request will be tweeted to our “dreamleague” account, which will be broadcast to our followers.
Why would I want to login with my Yahoo account? If you have a Yahoo email address, it may be easier to keep track of your request.
What if I’m not the captain? Not really a problem, as we will doublecheck all requests with your captain, anyway.
What if I provide a bad email address? Your request will likely be rejected.
Where can I see a list of all teams’ season tipoff timeframes? Right below this sentence.

Season tipoff timeframes

Note: The league office will be “scrubbing” this data shortly. For example, some timeframes reported as 3p-9p are accidentally truncated with “3p—“. Thank you for your patience as we correct these errors.

(best to do a browser “Find” to find your team’s timeframe)
