    ugh, not again...

    Can anyone help me out? Here is the situation...

    As you know, Anthony recently resigned as owner of the Dolphins. I took over the reigns in Miami, made a new owner, and joined TMFL. Today we are in the 'Re-Signs' stage of the off-season, but I'm faced with a pretty terrible situation. It appears that when Anthony left, all of the money that he had made, left with him. As the new owner, I apparently have no money. (Had we known of this issue, we could have asked Anthony to wait until the draft to resign, if that was all possible).

    I only have 110k of available funds. When I tried to resign players it gave me a message that said, "You have insufficient funds to make this contract. Would you like to restructure?" I tried to restructure, but it just backed me out and said 'contract negotiations ended''.

    I currently have 15 player I am attempting to resign.

    • Dustin Keller (90 OVR) TE
    • Brent Grimes (92 OVR) CB
    • Reshad Jones (89 OVR) FS
    • Tyson Clabo (84 OVR) RT
    • Koa Misi (79 OVR) LOLB
    and 8 or 9 other players that I can't even attempt to re-sign. Losing all these players will decimate my 73 OVR team. I stand to lose #1 CB, #1 TE, #1 LOLB, #1 FS, #1 RT, #1 LG, Kicker and possibly 8 more players.

    Furthermore, that means I will not be able to even sign Free Agents. I have 23+ Million in cap room that I can't tap. The Dolphins are currently at full roster: 53 players - 15 lost due to inability to re-sign = 38 players.


    I know some are saying, I'll still do fine because I went to the Superbowl with the Jags during the "Cap Glitch" Cycle. That may or may not be true, but it really does suck the fun out of it playing so down on personnel. Putting linebackers at a safety position blows. Losing 4 players rated over 88 OVR sucks pretty badly too - especially considering the Dolphins are only ranked 73 OVR right now. They are the ones holding my average 1 point above the Jaguars and Coach bawvu97 :)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Shaun Mason do you know if there is any recourse to this. Without sounding dramatic, this will pretty much kill the team. I'm hoping you know something to do here. Is there a way I could come back as a financial mogul with that 10 M start up and possibly attempt to sign at least a few players?

    If not, then I Peench and fuzzyl0gic - what do you want me to do?

    Not sure if you are experiencing this. I hope you chose financial mogul.

    When did you join? Did you get to play any games and make any money?

    And yeah, had I known, I'd definitely chose Mogul.

    I would come back as a financial mogul tbh. Weve had turnover and this is the first Ive heard of the issue, but I am unsure of what owner types the other guys selected. Have no idea why you need cash on hand to sign guys with that kind of cap room to begin with. But thats another issue.

    Yeah, Jesse, that's what is frustrating. I have plenty of cap room, but practically no 'available funds'. I am hoping I can come back as the Mogul, but someone mention in CB that, Shaun mentioned not being able to come back as the same team. I hope that is incorrect though.

    Shaun, is there any reason I can't leave the Dophins and come back as a mogul?

    I don't know the answer to that. I'd have someone start up a test CFM and do it there to make sure you don't get blacklisted.

    I made two Owners in an offline CCM:

    I quit after 1 game.
    Tried to return and got this message: "You are Blacklisted"

    I wish I could just toss you a few million, chump change for the mogul in the big apple.

    Let me give this some thought.

    Hahaha. Hell he may not be able to play a game, so who knows.

    Supposedly you are not blacklisted if you select a different team.

    From the EA Boards "You will not be able to use the same team until the following season. The team blacklists you when you retire you can play as a different team until then, your commishner will not be able to remove this feature "

    So perhaps someone would be willing to switch with you.. I dunno.

    That's a good idea.

    Anybody want to switch teams? The Dolphins have Cap Room, just no funds :/

    Can we somehow fudge this? He wants to sign those guys, maybe we use a hands off approach and let him grab them during the preseason. Then at the end of the season he has to give them what they want? Kind of work around it.

    Id say at least 5-8 owners never even read the boards except game scheduling. Really hard to police.

    I guess if those guys sign someone they can cut him and get the cap penalty.
