    *** THE FOLLOWING WAIVER INSTRUCTIONS APPLY TO THE 2014 PRE-SEASON ONLY. ***

    Once M15 has been released, we will use the updated 75 man rosters which we will manually update with any recent transactions that may have occurred in the NFL between the date of the M15 release and the initiation of our online CFM. Once the franchise has been activated, a deadline will be established for the pre-season and roster cuts. Once the roster cuts have been completed, we will hold a 24 hour waiver period for teams to claim available free agents.

    The deadline for the 2014 pre-season, roster cuts, and FA waiver claims will be announced once we have determined when the updated 75 man rosters will be released and the CFM can be initiated.

    Typically, the franchise will be advanced to week 1 of the regular season prior to the FA waivers period, but we will not open games until the FA waivers have been completed.

    IMPORTANT: ONCE THE ROSTER CUTS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED AND THE FA WAIVERS PERIOD HAS BEEN OPENED, DO NOT PLAY ANY GAMES AND DO NOT SIGN ANY FREE AGENTS IN THE FRANCHISE UNTIL THE FA WAIVERS RESULTS HAVE BEEN POSTED IN THE FORUM.



    TRADES:

    All teams will be allowed to process APPROVED TRADES in the franchise. If your trade has yet to be approved, DO NOT PROCESS IT until you receive that approval. Don't worry, we're generally very attentive to trades that have been posted.

    ROSTER CUTS:

    All rosters will be required to be at 53 players. If you fail to get your roster down to 53, you will lose players to auto-cuts (determined by the CPU) when we advance the CFM to the regular season. If that is the case; you will have nobody to blame but yourself, so please don't come crying to league management about the 54th guy on your roster being cut. ;)

    WAIVERS:

    The following FA waiver claims format applies to the 2014 pre-season ONLY...

    Following the league deadline for teams to cut rosters to the 53 man limit, waivers will be used to claim free agents during the 2014 pre-season. The waiver order is determined by the 2014 NFL draft order.


    Teams will be required to submit a form to claim free agent claims during the waivers period. The form will be available in the Team Management forum.

    Only ONE form submission is allowed per team. The results of the form are private and will not be available for public display until AFTER the applicable waiver claim deadline. Do NOT post the name(s) of the player(s) your team is claiming in the forum. A confirmation message will display when a waiver claim form has been successfully submitted. If you would like confirmation that your form has been received, you may reply to this post that you have submitted your form and we will provide you with a confirmation reply.

    Teams may submit claims for an unlimited number of free agents. Teams must list their claims in order of priority. If a team elects to make separate claims for multiple free agents, the team will be assigned each free agent that is rightfully claimed through the waiver order even if the separate claims are for the same position.

    Teams are allowed to provide an UNLIMITED number of alternate free agent names of the SAME position IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE within the same claim. The reasoning behind this is to allow the team to sign a free agent at the designated position if their first, second, or third (and so on) target is claimed by a different team via waiver order.

    If a team provides alternate free agent names with each claim (for the same position only), the team will claim the free agent option that is highest on the team’s preference list through the process of elimination based on the waiver order. Once a free agent from a team’s preference list has been designated to be claimed, all alternate free agent names associated with the claim will be eliminated from their list of options.

    Free agent claims will be awarded based on priority AND waiver order as follows...


    Example 1: FA assigned based on waiver order.
    Scenario: The Chiefs and Jaguars each submit waiver claims for free agent WR Randy Moss.

    Waiver Order
    1. Chiefs
    2. Jaguars
    3. Raiders
    The Chiefs list WR Randy Moss as their #1 priority on their waiver form.

    The Jaguars list WR Randy Moss as their #1 priority on their waiver form.

    RESULT: The Chiefs would be awarded the rights to Moss as both teams had Moss listed as their #1 priority, but the Chiefs are higher than the Jaguars on the waiver order.



    Example 2: FA assigned based on priority over waiver order.
    Scenario: The Chiefs and Jaguars each submit waiver claims for free agent WR Randy Moss.

    Waiver Order
    1. Chiefs
    2. Jaguars
    3. Raiders
    The Chiefs list HB Beanie Wells as their #1 priority on their waiver form and Moss as their #2 priority with WR Brandon Lloyd as an alternate #2 priority in their claim for Moss.

    The Jaguars claim WR Randy Moss as their #1 priority.

    RESULT: The Jaguars would be awarded the rights to Moss as they had Moss listed higher on their priority list (#1 priority) compared to the Chiefs (#2 priority).



    Example 3: FA assigned based on alternate FA's listed.
    Scenario: The Chiefs, Jaguars, and Raiders each submit waiver claims for free agent WR Randy Moss.

    Waiver Order
    1. Chiefs
    2. Jaguars
    3. Raiders
    The Chiefs claim WR Randy Moss as their #1 priority on their waiver form.
    The Jaguars claim WR Randy Moss as their #1 priority on their waiver form with WR Brandon Lloyd as an alternate in their claim for Moss.

    The Raiders claim WR Randy Moss as their #1 priority on their waiver form with WR Brandon Lloyd as their first alternate and WR Steve Smith as their second alternate in their claim for Moss.

    RESULT: The Chiefs would be awarded the rights to Moss based solely on waiver order. The Jaguars would be awarded the rights to WR Brandon Lloyd based on alternate claim as their #1 priority and they are higher on the waiver order than the Raiders. The Raiders would be awarded the rights to Smith as they had Smith listed as their #1 priority and second alternate after Lloyd.
    Once a free agent has been claimed via waivers, the free agent MUST be signed. If a team needs to create roster space or cap space to sign the free agent, they will be forced to do so in order to sign the claimed free agent. The player may be released at any time during the regular season. Free agency will be first come, first served at the opening of week 1 of the regular season.

    2014 PRE-SEASON WAIVER ORDER
    1 Houston Texans
    2 Washington Redskins
    3 Jacksonville Jaguars
    4 Cleveland Browns
    5 Oakland Raiders
    6 Atlanta Falcons
    7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    8 Minnesota Vikings
    9 Buffalo Bills
    10 Detroit Lions
    11 Tennessee Titans
    12 New York Giants
    13 St. Louis Rams
    14 Chicago Bears
    15 Pittsburgh Steelers
    16 Dallas Cowboys
    17 Baltimore Ravens
    18 New York Jets
    19 Miami Dolphins
    20 Arizona Cardinals
    21 Green Bay Packers
    22 Philadelphia Eagles
    23 Kansas City Chiefs
    24 Cincinnati Bengals
    25 San Diego Chargers
    26 Indianapolis Colts
    27 New Orleans Saints
    28 Carolina Panthers
    29 New England Patriots
    30 San Francisco 49ers
    31 Denver Broncos
    32 Seattle Seahawks

    ROSTER REQUIREMENTS

    Whether you choose to make any waiver claims or not, your roster MUST meet the minimum roster requirements:
    Waiver claims are THE ONLY WAY to sign free agents for your week one games.

    Free agents signed by waivers may NOT change position unless it is a lateral move allowed per the depth chart rules.

    Once again, we will announce when the waiver period will be commencing after we have the game in hand and roster cuts have been completed. Reply with any waiver claims Q&A here so that the rest of the league may see the responses as I'm sure we may receive some duplicate questions/answers. Good luck! (y)

    For anyone wondering, this process is identical to what we did for M25.

    not necessary. I updated the post with text colors that contrast with both the light and dark backgrounds.

    Once getting the game....and getting online (roster update)...I assume we can just start up a random new franchise....and look at the free agents to know who to pick from? barring any real team moves for players prior to our start of the season

    As of now …It looks like we will most likely roll with the current roster update of 75…owners will then be responsible of cutting their team down to 53 with the appropriate positional requirements being met. A schedule will be forthcoming.
