    Below is a schedule of the off-season process for this year. The Scouting period is a few days longer, because I'm sure some owners are going to be out of town/ away from home for Thanksgiving. The draft is set for Sunday the 25th. ALL OWNERS SEND ME A FRIEND REQUEST ON XBL BEFORE THE END OF THE SEASON, TO MAKE COMMUNICATION WITH THE LEAGUE EASIER.


    Post-Season Stage Date
    Player Retirements/Resigning 11/18
    FA Signing Wk 1 11/19
    FA Signing Wk 2 11/20
    FA Signing Wk 3 11/21
    Scouting Period/Holiday 11/22-24
    2013 NFL Draft 11/25
    Rookie Signings Post-Draft
    2013 Pre-Season 11/26


    *All advance times are at Midnight CST



    **DRAFT WILL BEGIN SUNDAY 11/25 @ 10 AM CST**
    Also, it has come to my attention that there is a "Draft Guide" floating around on the net. It should go without saying, but I am gonna say it anyway. DO NOT USE IT, OR YOU WILL BE DONE. No exceptions to this rule. I have not looked for it, or seen it, and neither should you. I will know who has used the guide, after the rookie signing process. Trust me, it will be obvious if you cherry picked the draft. If you enjoy being a member of this league, DO NOT USE THE DRAFT GUIDE AKA CHEAT.
    /end rant

    Any other draft procedure / scheduling questions please post below. Thank you all for your participation.

    Before would be best for me. That way we won't have to rush through the draft or anything.

    So those who can't be there are going to have the CPU draft for them? It'd be a hassle to have someone else do it and keep signing on and off? What are the options if we aren't able to attend RRAHx2

    Voted. Is there an article out there somewhere about what to do with scouting etc? I haven't scouted at all this year and I hear that can help. I'm eyeing 2 positions in the draft for my first and second pick but not exactly sure how to find our their stats ahead of time etc.

    Ok so did I sign people on free agency? I go under the RB's and WR's I put bid's on and they aren't listed under free agents, they aren't listed under any team when I go through rosters, and my "available Cap Room" is now 10 million lower... Any ideas here?

    Use the Right Trigger to check under 'My Signings' and 'My Negotiations'.

    Ok gotcha. Also it says my cap room is 3million... So is that total cap room? What's the minimum required JUST to handle the minimum with rookies? I guess I need to start cutting people.

    Every team has a "Rookie reserve" of money for that reason

    yea after i did my bids i had 8 mil cap space then after i signed some free agents i went from that to almost 18 mil mostly caused i failed 2 sign laron landry i tried 2 give him a 4 year 8.50 mil a year and he didn't accept so i suppose some 1 gave him a bigger contract. looks like ill have 2 get a FS through the draft

    All owners please be sure to add me as a friend on XBL so we can make the draft process smoother. Plan on having your headset available, so we can all join a party or something to make communication easier.

    Well technically, having the draft after 6 pm won 18-15 if you had just put "after 6" as an option instead of the "during SNF" as another choice. Also not sure why there's 38 votes in a 32 team league, but it is what it is, lol. See ya'll Sunday morning.
