    As we begin our final off-season cycle of the Madden 15 release, we will once again be offering team funds assistance, to those owners in need. We will continue the program we used last off-season, as detailed below.

    QSF Off-Season Team Funds Assistance Program (2019 & 2020)

    After much discussion, we have come up with a financial assistance program to aide those teams facing financial distress this coming off-season. While it's never ideal to have to resort to bailouts, we feel that it is in the best interest of the league to ensure no team is completely handcuffed by what is admittedly a less than perfect program design. We still feel that maintaining an "Owners Only" franchise is the way to go, and hopefully this assistance program will allow everyone to have an active and successful off-season.


    There will be TWO opportunities (per season) this off-season where owners will be allowed a "reset" of team funds, to provide financial relief for those teams that need it. In order to achieve this "reset", owners will have to be removed from the franchise and them be re-invited by league management, once their team has been "reset". Upon rejoining, those owners can recreate their team owner as a "mogul" (again using YOUR NAME) and have access to an immediate $7M in available team funds.

    The TWO opportunities (per season) to "reset" are as follows:

    ONCE during the offseason activities, to assist with resignings and Free Agency. This can be used during an 1 of 3 periods, but each team may only be reset ONCE during the offseason activities.

    During Super Bowl week - This will allow all owners the opportunity to head into the Off-Season Resigning phase with at least $7M in available team funds, with which to resign their own players. (Must be done prior to the advance to the resigning phase.)

    - OR -

    During Phase 1 OR Phase 2 of Free Agency - This will allow all owners the opportunity to have at least $7M in available team funds with which to bid on Free Agency. (Can only be done during one of the first 2 phases of Free Agency, funds will then become available for bidding upon the start of the next phase. )​

    ONCE during week 1 of the Preseason - This will allow teams to start off the season (simmed or played) in the positive, and wipe out any debt that may be incurred from rookie signing bonuses. This can be used for both the simmed AND next played season (2019 & 2020).

    We hope that with these allowances, we can alleviate the strains that some teams face, which could keep them from fully enjoying their franchise experience.

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

    We will be advancing to resignings on Monday night 3/16/15 @ 11 PM EST. Please don't wait until the last minute to request assistance!

    Please reply to this thread NOW, if you need financial assistance for the resignings phase. If you have less than $7M in team funds right now (Super Bowl week), I strongly suggest you consider declaring for assistance. If any owner fails to declare their need for assistance for any of these three phases, they may miss their opportunity to participate in that stage of the off-season. So for example; once we advance to the resignings phase, it will be too late to get assistance for THAT phase.

    Anyone that does request assistance, please include your current team funds in your request. We have been asked to collect that information to provide some feedback to EA.

    Thanks!

    I haven't been able to look at funds since the advance after superbowl but last I checked was below $7M.

    Panthers would like to request assistance after phase 1 of free agency.
