    Cap Glitch strikes again. It appears the cap glitch is still affecting the users, even after cap has been turned off. After speaking to Dan (who also was plagued by glitch), we both realized that we could not bid on any free agents.


    Here are pictures of what happens:

    [There is "0"offers by Jones-Drew's name, which obviously shows it's not working]

    It has been said that after the draft we can sign, but competitively this is a nightmare for us. I for one, only have 30 players on my entire roster and over 80 million dollars in cap room to improve my much maligned team.

    Even though it's true that we could bid after the draft, it presents two detrimental outcomes:

    1. We have left overs of the Free Agency pool that will be either too little talent, too old, or a combination.
    2. We will be extremely heavy in one year contracts. I for one can sign 23 players. That would be a nightmare to have 10-15 Free Agents leave your team next year, to only have even more inflated prices.
    My Suggestion:

    I have many free agents that I want to go after that people are looking at (i.e., Maclin, Revis{Sim is not resigning}). There are already 5+ teams on Maclin, and by tomorrow Revis will have 7+ easy. The only fair way to do this, is a manual free agency bid that goes through you, or a committee that you create. In the case of a player that one is bidding on in the committee, then they should recuse themself from the knowledge of the bid prices.

    After one round, if there are 5 bidders, the lowest 2 get knocked out (or bottom 50%). Have 3 rounds just like the game. When a bid is won by a team affected by glitch, then all teams rescind bid and allow the player to stay in free agency until after the draft, so they can be signed

    Have all of the Cap Glitch users post a list of Free Agents they plan on bidding for. There may be some where this isnt necessary, as they may be the only bidder, in which case this isn't necessary. Unfortunately, otherwise, and I speak for many of us, our teams will be broken, thin, and pathetic; Andorra course, put us a great disadvantage.

    I'd release 1 unneccesarry player and see if your "roster #" recalculates or something.

    What an utter and complete mess.

    This is a good suggestion.

    If that doesn't work, try leaving the CCM and rejoining see if that changes anything.

    I'm not manually doing FA bidding.

    Shaun Mason I cut a guy and still no dice, I created a new coach vs. retirement to see if that has any different effect.

    Of course now it thinks I am a new member so I cant do shit until we advance next.


    On a related note

    If you're switching to Minnesota, then the only team that I would switch to is Green Bay. You would have to get Masler on board for that.
