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.
