THE GULF COAST READINESS LEAGUE
  established 2007, renamed 2011

This is the home for the Yahoo! Gulf Coast Readiness <Fantasy Football> League (GCRL)
The League was named The Gulf Coast Rookie League for its first four seasons.
  The Gulf Coast Readiness League is ultimately the preparatory league
for the Gulf Coast (Fantasy) Football League (GCFL).

The Gulf Coast Fantasy Football League was originally created in 2005.  In 2006, the GCFL returned, and three test leagues, the Old Gulf Coast Football League
(now the Gulf Coast Readiness League after being renamed), the Gulf Coast Pick'em League, and the Gulf Coast Survival League were presented for their debut seasons, respectively.

Ownership in either the Gulf Coast Football League (GCFL) or the Gulf Coast Readiness League (GCRL) awards automatic entrance into the
Gulf Coast Pick'em League (GCPL) and the Gulf Coast Survival League (GCSL).
These leagues are more heavily promoted and details are on their respective homepages.

GULF COAST READINESS LEAGUE

The Gulf Coast Readiness League is the primary developmental league for the well-established Gulf Coast Football League.

For the first four seasons, this league was called the Gulf Coast Rookie League.  However, to some the name implied the competition level was not nearly as intense as intended.  New blood has always been encouraged to join the GCRL, but veteran owners are as welcome as first-timers - and there is PLENTY of competition.

The goal of the Gulf Coast Readiness League is to reward league winners and high-placers a chance to "advance" their team the following season to the GCFL where competition is tougher and good teams are "in for the long haul".  The GCRL also allows those who did not do so well in the previous GCFL season and were "relogated" to have a chance to return one season (or more)  later to the glory of GCFL ownership.

The league settings are exactly the same, and besides the commissioner, who will retain a team in both the GCRL and the GCFL for continuity standards, any franchisee who meets the geographic requirements of (1) having a team located in one of the five Gulf Coast states  (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida), and (2) having said franchise with a name representative of the Gulf Coast theme is able to participate in the GCRL.  NO EXCEPTIONS!  Failure to abide by the representative franchise name will result in immediate preseason dismissal.  GCFL ownership is only by promotion.

If you are interested in joining the Gulf Coast Readiness League and think you have what it takes to move on -
simply e-mail the commissioner at straykats@charter.net and include your home location, potential team name,
and why YOU think you have what it takes to join some of the most dynamic leagues in the Yahoo! domain.
