    Guys, we will advance the league at Midnight EST tonight to Week 2 of the off-season. Then from there we will be on a 12 HR advance cycle until the draft which starts @ Noon EST. Post below whether you will be attending or not so I know who to expect.

    Just a reminder of the new contract rules signing players:

    1. All contracts that are longer than 2 years in length or have a total value exceeding $3.00M, must have a signing bonus of atleast 25% of the value of the total contract.

    EXAMPLE: 4YR contract for $7.5M base and $2.5M bonus = VALID contract. Base + Bonus = $10M. Bonus ($2.5M)/$10M = 25%
    ................4YR Contract for $8M base and $2M bonus = INVALID contract. Base + Bonus = $10M. Bonus($2.00M)/$10.00M = 20%.


    2. Length of deals: you may not offer more contract years to a player than they are asking for.

    EXAMPLE: QB Tom Brady wants a 4-year deal. You may offer him a deal between 1-4 years. If you offer him a 5-year deal and he accepts it you will eat the cap penalty when you drop him for failing to comply with the rule.

    *IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THESE RULES ASK BEFORE YOU OFFER A CONTRACT. IF A PLAYER ACCEPTS AN INVALID CONTRACT, YOU WILL BE FORCED TO DROP HIM AND TAKE THE CAP HIT*

    Also, pertaining to the NFL Draft:

    - It goes without saying, but I will say it anyway. ANY OWNER CAUGHT TO BE USING THE DRAFT GUIDE WILL BE BOOTED NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Trust me, I review EVERY teams rookie signings, and it is obvious who cherry picks the Draft. This is a sim realistic league, which obviously means NO CHEATING. You are just taking the fun out of this for yourself and all other owners when you do that.

    - I am implementing a new rule this draft to avoid the unrealistic player drafting that took place last season (drafting 5th round guys in the 1st round): NO TEAM MAY DRAFT A PLAYER 2 ROUNDS HIGHER THAN WHERE HE IS PROJECTED

    If anyone has any questions on these things LMK and I will help you. Thanks, guys.

    So uhhh, I think I've screwed myself in 3-4 years. Even though I'm offering like the minimum the player wants by the time we get there I'm going to have to cut like everyone and take the hit just to be under the cap I believe. (I don't know this for fact but it seems like I'm a damn drug dealer the money I'm paying some guys. I'm sure thats what they will get in real life but damn these guys are greedy.)

    Anyway how do we see what our projected $'s are down the road?

    You can't unless you go in and add up all your contracts. However the League Salary Cap increases by $10M every year.

    How many rounds are left n the offseason? And how many for scouting are left? I assume I am not able to use my scouting points during the draft :p, right? :)

    4YR contract for $7.5M base and $2.5M bonus = VALID contract. Base + Bonus = $10M. Bonus ($2.5M)/$10M = 25%
    .

    the 7.5 base is that the total salary on the contract or is that the total salary divided by 4years?

    Same with the bonus is 2.5M 1 year worth of bonus or is that 2.5 total bonus for the whole contract??

    7.5 is the value of the contract. Doesnt matter how many years + the 2.5 bonus for the whole contract.

    I love the no more than 2 rounds early rule. That should help spread out some talent or at least put them on the worst teams depending on how well everyone scouted.

    K so if I got it lets say I offer a guy a 4yr deal @ 2M per year. The base salary is 8M

    I offer bonus of 2.75M per year which is a total bonus of 11M.

    11M (bonus) + 8M (base) = 19M

    8M (bonus) / 19M (base + bonus) = 57% so I am good with this offer??


    I just want to make sure I got the math correct

    That is a crazy but yes it is valid..

    THE FORMULA I USE TO MAKE SURE I AM WITHIN THE RULES:

    BONUS $ PER YEAR x # OF CONTRACT YRS / TOTAL VALUE OF CONTRACT = PERCENTAGE

    if you are offering a guy a total contract of 5YRS/ $8M Salary with $3M Bonus:

    So $600K Bonus per year x 5 YRS = 3M /11M = .27 = 27%

    Hope this helps guys.
