    DRAFT

    Great job at another successful draft, gentlemen! Thank you for being patient and working around the Salary Cap glitch with those who were effected via trades. We finished the draft in roughly 2hrs and 20 mins, so again, not bad for a seven round draft.


    PRE-SEASON

    I've advanced the online CCM to the pre-season. The deadline for pre-season trading, FA, and roster cuts will be Saturday 11/17/12 at MIDNIGHT EST. We will run the pre-season schedule during the week of U.S. Thanksgiving to allow for those who are hunting, travelling, and vacationing to catch up on family affairs. Something like this...

    Week 1 deadline Saturday midnight EST​
    Week 2 deadline Tuesday midnight EST​
    Week 3 deadline Friday midnight EST​
    Week 4 deadline Sunday midnight EST​

    The pre-season would also be a PERFECT time to head over to the community and practice with the TEST SLIDERS. Please, post your feedback HERE (LINK).


    SALARY CAP

    The salary cap has been turned off and we will be monitoring your Team Salaries individually. You must comply with the salary cap and remain under the cap at all times. Simply put, everything online remains the same... FA bidding, re-signings, trades, and the draft. The only difference is that we are just dealing with flat contracts; no penalties. Yes, bonus offerings still count and are applicable to each player’s annual contract, but you won’t need to worry about the penalties incurred when trading/releasing a player with bonus on his contract. Attempts to manipulate the cap due to the lack of penalties will result in punishment determined by the staff.


    HOW TO VIEW YOUR TEAM SALARIES

    While in the online CCM; select the upper right tab and proceed…

    MORE… > STRATEGY (WHISTLE ICON) > TEAM SALARIES (MONEY BAG ICON)

    YOU are responsible for managing your team salaries to remain under the cap. Jim has recorded a video of each team’s current Team Salaries amount and will post it for everyone’s reference. Any team that exceeds the salary cap as a result of over-bidding in free agency will be required to keep the signed free agent on their roster and release enough players to create the necessary cap space The signed free agent will be suspended for eight (8) games total (not weeks).

    The Salary Cap per season is as follows…

    ·2014: 137.50M
    ·2015: 142.5M
    ·2016: 145M
    ·2017: 145M
    ·2018: 145M


    RELEASES
    With the removal of the salary cap in the game, we must now post releases in the forum and monitor them the way we used to with Madden releases past. Jim will be compiling a spreadsheet with all of the team cap and penalties. PLEASE, when posting your releases use a format so that they are easy to read. Use mine as an example... Dolphins Releases (LINK). If you don't know how to find out what your cap penalty will be for releasing or trading a player, here is a step-by-step how.

    • From the MORE... tab, go to Personnel (football helmet icon), then the Roster (paper icon).
    • Select the player you wish to release ( X ) and a player window will appear.
    • Select "Release" from the drop down menu that appears.
    • A "Confirm Action" window will appear. Use the cap penalty figure quoted from theConfirm Action window and post it here.
    • You may release your player once you have posted your cap penalty in the forum.

    TRADES

    The teams who drafted players for other teams due to the salary cap glitch can trade those rookies to their respective team. Before you do so, the team who is receiving the player, please post the bonus amount for that player in your team's release thread in the Team Management forum. The rookie will lose his bonus in the trade, but we can keep track of his bonus there. Just indicate "received rookies back due to glitch... " and post the players like this...

    QB Harry Ball = 4yrs / $4M bonus
    LT Phil McCracken = 4yrs / $400k bonus
    TE Isuk Scheit = 4yrs / $0 bonus

    All other trades may be posted and processed accordingly. You no longer need to use the format that we were using for the online CCM. Instead, just post the penalties incurred for each team as we have with Madden releases past. The cap penalty will apply toward the following season. So if we're in 2014, the penalty will apply to 2015. Capiche?

    If glitch affected teams need to send a single pick to a receiving team, send TWO picks and the other team will send ONE pick. Then just flip-flop the picks that were not to be involved in the trade. You can do the same format if a single player needs to be traded.

    The following trade rules apply immediately following the 2014 draft…

    TRADE RULES
    ·ONE in-season trade
    ·THREE off-season trades
    ·ONE Blockbuster trade per season involving ONE player 90+ overall from each side
    ·THREE players/picks per trade MAX
    ·PICKS for PICKS trades are unlimited



    FREE AGENCY

    I released TJ Lang. I think the problem was that I had 0 LG's on my team (just 3 RG's), so the CPU signed one for me on a 1-yr no-bonus deal. But he's back in the FA pool for you now

    Hmm, maybe you guys have the CPU fill roster set to on? It is on by default initially. That would be the only way the CPU could sign players for you.

    The online CCM has been advanced to week 2 of the preseason. The deadline for week 2 is Tuesday 11/20/12 at Midnight EST.

    Please keep in mind that if you do not perform your releases to get your roster down to 53 players, the computer WILL release players for you as we advance the preseason.

    Be sure to POST ALL OF YOUR RELEASES, along with the penalties, in your team's release thread in the Team Management forum.

    You have until the end of the preseason to get those offseason trades in, then everyone will be limited to ONE in season trade once the regular season commences.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    PRE-SEASON

    I've advanced the online CCM to the pre-season. The deadline for pre-season trading, FA, and roster cuts will be Sunday 11/25/12 at MIDNIGHT EST. We will run the pre-season schedule during the week of U.S. Thanksgiving to allow for those who are hunting, travelling, and vacationing to catch up on family affairs. Something like this...

    Week 1 deadline Saturday midnight EST
    Week 2 deadline Tuesday midnight EST
    Week 3 deadline Friday midnight EST
    Week 4 deadline Sunday midnight EST

    I gotta say, it's a bummer that the schedules seem to be nearly identical to season 1. I only have 2 teams different from the 1st season's schedule.

    we'll turn injuries off for pre-season. Everyone should be able to start week 1 with a fresh team.

    Wow. EA must have never heard the phrase, "it's the little things that count the most". Great big picture product this year, but not so much in the area where true Madden fans know it counts. Hopefully next year the system doesn't fail in so many of these small areas. Now that they've got this CCM in place though, hopefully they'll focus on these small issues like scheduling and playoff picture.

    I am a firm believer that this will never happen. We will never get a complete product. It's been happening every season since as far back as I can remember.
    I don't know why they don't just stop screwing around with us, give us a complete package and make it upgradeable. Instead of issuing a totally "new" Madden each year, offer a download with updates and new rosters...

    Once you guys turn the injuries off will it wipe out the current injuries? I don't have any serious ones, but a few guys have multiple week and even season long injuries currently!

    Most likely not. I, too, have a season ending injury on my squad.
