What is this?

Gridiron is a game in which people run fictional football teams made up of fictional football players. The Gridiron 3.0 game and its websites are a hobby run by two guys in their spare time. It's all intended to be fun. These are not real teams or real leagues. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events or organisations is purely coincidental. Tell Me More
Trading is, for many coaches, one of the most enjoyable aspects of the game. It's all about negotiation and the art of the deal. Even during the game's off-season, trading ensures that there is never a dull moment.

Dave, Gridiron Head Coach
"This game is incredibly challenging, frustrating and compelling and definitely for you if your mindset is that you will do until you succeed"
