As of now, if you receive a punishment and as a result a player is banned for X amount of games, then you may not sign or trade for a player in the same position within 10 overall of the banned player
Example – Player X is 85 overall and banned for 4 games. You can only sign a player from FA or trade for a player who is 74 overall or less. This applies to the same position or position group, ie lb or s.
Note – This does not apply to the random punishments in Original league.
