The MBL was founded & created by Bomber on January 5th, 2014 debuting in Madden 25. MBL sole purpose was to bring back true simulation football while providing owners a full immersion experience. MBL runs August-August without any breaks or restarts. If you are looking for a Madden league that prides itself on realism and building teams from draft, free agency, and player development then you have came to the right place.
MBL seasons 1-3 on Madden 25 were difficult as the owner turnover rate was high, as many madden gamers are not made for the MBL. MBL Season 4-5 is when the MBL began to find itself as a premier league on Xbox One. In season 5 Lipp came on as the Co-Commish, and the MBL admins set the tone for how to conduct yourself on and off the field. Lipp took over the gameplay and complaint section of the MBL and this allowed for Bomber to grow the league in other areas such as Twitter and Youtube outlets. Lipp has been the most consistent contributor to the league, and is respected around the league putting MBL ahead of everything else.
Bastin was added in Season 6 to the admin team, he managed the roster division of the MBL making sure all teams were following the rules and regulations according to the MBL roster requirements. MBL began to take off, Lipp and Bastin were inducted in Season 8, along with Bomber, into the MBL Owners HOF. These three were the pioneers for creating the standards and systematically implementing them into the league holding all owners accountable.
Sonny became the pioneer for the MBL Network, creating content for the weekly 4 Verts Podcast, MBL 30 for 30 series, and MBL Tonight.

mbl mission statement
"MBL creates an ideal SIM environment in which owners build teams through Free Agency, MBL Draft, and Player Development. Strict Trade Rules are used to maintain identity and realism of teams while promoting the SIM culture MBL is attempting to create. There are plenty of sim leagues that allow unrealistic trading and non strategic gameplay, but if you are looking for something more life-like then you have came to the right place. Our owners enjoy a competitive SIM game that results in a Loss versus a Lobby Game that results in a Win. We are the leaders in Full Immersion Gaming, and look forward to seeing you join the MBL community. Now lets play Chess not Checkers"
