    Gentlemen, after careful deliberation, Eddie, Jim, and I have decided that we will put a HOLD on starting the franchise until the first roster update comes out. We are expecting that to occur this week. If it does not and there appears to be no end in sight, we will revisit whether or not we want to take on the task of editing the rosters ourselves.

    The reasons behind our decision are as follows:
    • Trades this past week that still need to be completed.
    • Releases this past week that still need to be completed.
    • Players that don't exist in the current CCM need to be created and added to some 53 man rosters.
    • Player ratings will be tuned based on NFL pre-season performance.
    • Owners won't feel slighted by us omitting or enforcing roster changes that are beyond our control.

    The rosters are always a touchy subject. Over the several years that Eddie, Jim, and I have been doing this; we know far too well that editing the rosters is a time consuming process. If EA is putting out an update this week, it wouldn't be prudent for us to move forward only to get an extra day or two out of incomplete rosters.

    With that said, please continue to join the online franchise at this point in time. I will start the franchise online so that you can get acquainted with the CCM and how it works. Feel free to complete some practice scenarios, player releases, and even trades if you like as they will all be negated when we reset the league for the roster update. Until then, please be patient as the start of the franchise will be out of our control until the first roster update is released. Thank you for your understanding!

    Does anyone know if Practice Squad players are on the CCM rosters?

    My guess is it's too early to tell, as there were no practice squads when it came out. I would be willing to bet though that most of the practice squad players make it, as they are still going to have bigger rosters to be cut down in preseason.
