The Games: Online: Roleplaying: Sports: (Play-By-E-Mail Sports )

Sports simulations are a particular breed of play-by-mail (or play-by-e-mail) games which concern themselves with the management of a fictional sports team or fictional individual in a sport like tennis or boxing. The most commonly simulated sports are American (gridiron) football, soccer (Association football), and hockey, though someone's had a go at just about any team sport, not to mention a fair number of individual sports. Generally, participants in these games send in instructions to the moderator (frequently referred to as a "commissioner") who processes the instructions using either a special computer program or a board game and reports the results back to the participants.
