Hard Knocks. Going forward, we will be strongly policing the Resigning and Free Agency period. If you have a player that is rated 80 OVR OR HIGHER that does not accept your contract renewal or is released, he must go through the First 3 Free Agency periods, before you can attempt an offer. After the First 3 FA periods and Draft, if that player is still available, you are welcome to rehire him for a year 1 contract to renegotiate. In conjunction with this to avoid confusion or argument, when determining if a player is 80 OVR OR HIGHER, we will be basing the final verdict on the Daddy League OVR rating for that player.
