    As stated in other threads - players are awarded at the end of Free Agency so whether or not it is open tonight or tomorrow is irrelevant.

    Free Agency closes Wednesday at 5pm EST. You have until then to submit bids on players.

    Week 1 will open Wednesday night and our first advance should be Saturday afternoon assuming we don't finish week 1 any sooner and advance quicker.

    Error I get when trying to place bid - "Error retrieving markup for element bidOn16055_body : Service Unavailable [Enable debugging by adding 'cfdebug' to your URL parameters to see more information]" Anyone else get this error? The only person I don't get this error on is T.O. (he's the only one with a bid currently on him.)

    Try logging out and logging back in - not sure really.

    Have you joined the EA site - can you login on there?

    Yeah I'm getting all kinds of errors, especially when trying to drop a player. I saw the dev of the site say in a tweet a couple of hours ago they are being overloaded.

    Submit bids and such as you can. If things get held up with errors etc tonight don't sweat it - Free Agency is going to be open for awhile.

    The site seems to be unstable tonight. I got one bid in and haven't even been able to login since. Will try again tomorrow night.

    Can we have FA close at like 12am EST Wednesday or Thursday? For those of us who work, essentially we have no way to make last minute bids.

    Just a heads up, if the site has not fixed its stability, that could be nightmare for the draft if we use it to draft on.......

    I know in xlences league FA was brutal cause people could not get on before it closed and could not bid. I think he moved it so players that were hot moved to the forums. But having the draft on MLM with stability issues could be a huge issue. Can you all imagine a draft where half the people could not get on lol.

    It doesn't make sense for everyone to close it at any specific time - some times just won't work for some people while it will work for others.

    The system isn't perfect but its all we have at this point.

    Given enough time on free agents - some teams should naturally fall by the wayside anyway once bidding becomes so high teams cannot afford players.

    So I am assuming there will be a period at the end of the season where we have time to resign our current free agents before the full free agency begins?

    Yeah - I generally call it restricted Free Agency.

    Next FA period, can we have daily FA deadlines or a general closing time? It'll help keep teams from loading up contracts and they'd actually have to decide how to best spend their money.

    For example:

    After we sign or release restricted FA on our own teams...

    Day 1: All players less than 70 are bid on.

    Day 2: All players less than 80 are bid on.

    Day 3: All players less than 90 are bid on.

    Day 4: Open bidding on remaining players.

    Open FA, then the draft...

    That would encourage sniping and would need to be voted on.

    Also, FA always comes after the Rookie Draft.

    I predict teams destroying their salary cap situation then doing one of two things.

    A) Complaining to raise the salary cap or
    B) if the salary cap is not raised, they will leave/quit.

    I have a ridiculous amount of cap space so as you can imagine I have a lot of targets but I still know my limits.

    They should have set it up ebay style where you can set what your maximum bid will be, that would curb the sniping somewhat
