What is the difference between a default and a forfeit?
A default occurs when a team captain notifies the IM Sports Office that his or her team will not be able to make a scheduled game at least one business day prior to the scheduled game. By defaulting the game, the team will receive a 3.0 sportsmanship rating. However, they will still lose by the forfeit score found in the rules of each individual sport.
A forfeit occurs when a team does not have enough members present at game time. If at least one member of a team is present, then the opposing team may decide to either win by forfeit or wait for the other players to show up. If the time (see the IM Sports Handbook) has passed before the minimum number of players arrives, then the game will be forfeited. The forfeiting team will receive a 0 sportsmanship rating, and lose by the forfeit score (see the rules of each sport).

What is a protest and what situations can be protested?
A protest is an attempt by a player to challenge an interpretation of the rules by an official. At the time the play in question occurred, the team captain will need to tell the official that he or she would like to protest the last play. All of the information and paperwork will be filled out prior to resuming play. The game will then continue with the interpretation of the rules determined by the official. The IM Sports office will then review the situation. If it is determined that the call was incorrect, the game will be replayed from the point in which the protest was filed.
Only interpretations of the rules and player eligibility may be protested. A player may not protest a judgment call by an official. An example of a judgment call would be pass interference in flag football or traveling in basketball. However, this may be protested if pass interference or traveling is called and the penalty is improperly enforced.
How does a team make it to playoffs? How is sportsmanship involved in the process?
Teams become eligible for playoffs based upon their record and sportsmanship ratings. The number of teams in the bracket will depend upon the number of teams in the sport and each specific league. In determining rankings, record will be used first, then point differential and finally head to head, if applicable.
Each team must maintain at least a 3.0 in sportsmanship in order to be eligible for playoffs. The sportsmanship rating is determined for each team after the game by the officials. The rating is on a scale from 0-4 with 0 being unacceptable and 4 being outstanding. Sportsmanship does not determine ranking in playoffs, simply if a team will be eligible to go to playoffs or not.
