The Football Organization of Louisa (FOOL) is an eight team league which plays a 10 game schedule. The game is not tied to the NFL or other leagues; it is not "fantasy" as usually understood. Instead, the teams are made up of players who are drafted from each year's stock of new players. Each team then conducts training camp, plays two to four preseason games, then the regular season. The playoffs include division championship matches and an overall championship game. Standings dictate the draft order for the following season, and so league play continued for what is currently 11 seasons. (The league began with four teams and expanded twice to six and then eight teams. Expansion to nine is being considered.)
