League Functions

The League Menu in the top section of the screen contains links to screens that display information related to the entire league. This is one of several categories of screens within the game. The League Menu also contains links to the Almanac, another of the major categories of screens.

Most screens in the league section can be directly accessed from the League Menu. All screens can be accessed from the main menu system below the top section.
