The Offseason will commence, Monday night. All sims are due by 8pm. That gives a little over 24 hours to get your shit in. For you FNGs... we advance EVERY DAY during the offseason. If you miss something? It's not my fault. Here is the schedule and important info. The Big bolded one is the most important... 2014/2015 Off-Season Schedule DO NOT MAKE FREE AGENT OFFERS UNTIL AFTER SIM #4. Extensions are fine, but if a free agent is signed before 12/1 in-game, the player may be released and the team will suffer whatever financial hit comes along with it. You are responsible for your roster and DFA. If you sign a guy and he times out, he gets dropped. OOTP now allows us to set the DFA time to 50 days so no excuses. You are responsible for making sure Rule 5 eligible players are protected. If somebody gets drafted "on accident" because he wasn't on the 40 man roster, too damn bad. #1: Tuesday 10/9 import and sim one day to set new budgets, open arbitration and see options (complete)ENTER AWARD WINNERS PRESIM!!
