    As we approach our first off-season cycle of the Madden 15 release, we have been exploring some options to assist those owners facing a lack of team funds.

    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.

    QSF Off-Season Team Funds Assistance Program

    There will be 3 times 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" and have access to an immediate $7M in available team funds.

    The three opportunities to "reset" are as follows:

    During the 2014 season 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.)

    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. )

    Week 1 of the 2015 Preseason - This will allow teams to start off the simmed season in the positive, and wipe out any debt that may be incurred from rookie signing bonuses.

    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.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    UPDATED:

    Please reply to this thread asap, 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!

    The purpose for moving forward with owner mode in this manner is to continue to enforce "soft" financial restrictions with the challenge of managing each roster. This was the healthiest way to do so from a league perspective. Of note, the practice of leaving and rejoining the franchise will NOT have any effect on coach or player XP. It solely effects the monetary status of the team.

    The following owners have been removed from the franchise, so that their team funds could be reset.

    Bengals (AveryB)
    Broncos (saintsdave75)
    Browns (LtJustice)
    Buccaneers (Jeremy)
    Chiefs (Rhight)

    The teams have been successfully reset and each owner has been sent an invite to rejoin the franchise. Upon rejoining, please CREATE a new owner, as a MOGUL, using YOUR own name. Once that is complete, you should have $7M in owner funds available for the next phase (resignings).

    If any owner is unable to rejoin before the conclusion of the Super Bowl this evening, please inform league management ASAP, as we may have to use a dummy account as a place holder for your team, with the advance. If an owner is not reset (or rejoined after a reset) prior to the advance to resignings, there will be nothing we can do to assist them with resignings during the resignings phase.
