    For most veterans, the information provided here will be old information. For new members to online madden communities, however, this information may be very useful for you in how you manage your team while a member of HaW or any other community that uses daddyleagues.

    The first thing you'll want to do is register. Visit www.daddyleagues.com and select the register option as seen below. Your registration is free.

    Once registration is complete you should make sure and update a member of the commissioner team with your userid so that they can assign you to your team.

    Next up, using Daddyleagues. Go to www.daddyleagues.com/haw

    Now, if you've been assigned to your team and you're logged in, you'll be able to see this:

    Front office allows you to manage your team remotely, including spending player XP, facilitating trades, releasing players and signing free agents.

    Sync will let you sync your most recent game scores and roster updates if you've made changes on the console.

    Account is where you'll update information such as your EA login credentials. These are required in order for Daddy Leagues to process any transactions.

    Spend XP does what it says.

    Release Players does what it says. It will provide you a breakdown of savings, penalties and remaining contract years with basic player information such as age and OVR.

    Sign Players will allow you to sign free agents during the regular season. This will not work if you are trying to sign players in the offseason free agency period.

    Trade will allow you to submit trades to other teams. Make sure you sync trades after submitting and after your trade partner has accepted to ensure Daddy Leagues is up to date. There is some lag with trade completions appearing on your DL roster. Do not allow this to worry you. If the console says it was done, it was done.

    Post Blog - Entirely up to you, but you probably want to save your game/user related content for here at TSO.

    Transactions does exactly what it says.

    Breakdown is a basic spreadsheet of every teams roster, letting you know how many people are signed to the roster and how many are in each position for each team.

    Salaries provides you a more in depth look at your player salary information.

    When using Daddy Leagues, keep in mind that the banner at the top of the page provides links to every team. If a team has moved, the image will remain the same team as they were before the move (Ex: London Black Knights will still be the Jacksonville Jaguars icon).

    Here you can find details about every single team and every single roster.

    Profile will gave you a basic snapshot of how the ream is doing.

    Stats will give you details for every players stats for the current season.

    Roster will let you see who is actively playing for this team.

    Depth Chart will let you see what players how they're using those players.

    Transactions will let you see all of their recent roster moves that daddyleagues has recorded (this may not always be 100% accurate).

    For more general information, you'll have some tools to help you out.

    upload_2015-9-24_15-28-31.png

    Home is exactly what it says: the home page for HaW.

    Chat is a barrens wasteland.

    We've gone over Front Office.

    Coaches let you see the assigned players to each team.

    Stats will show you stats for the entire league.

    Players is a comprehensive search tool allowing you to find any player in the league and automatically find gems that meet your search criteria. It should be noted that "Team" includes a free agent option that allows you to search for players in the position you're looking for with the filters you determine. There is an error where DL sees injured players as free agents. You will not be able to sign these players. If you attempt to, you'll notice their "salary" at the page you attempt to sign them on will have $0.

    upload_2015-9-24_15-30-10.png

    Schedules will give you the entire league schedule.

    Rules is not used currently.

    Standings will provide you the entire league standings.

    Forum & Blog are not used currently. Again, keep that content for HaW on TSO.
