    Now that Free Agency is open I wanted to make sure everyone is aware of roster limitations on the console.

    1) You must always have at least 1 player at most positions (aside from CB/WR where the limit may be 2 or 3) That means you cannot cut a player if he is the only person at his position until you sign another player. If you need an exception to this rule please see me and I will discuss with you how to handle it.

    2) The Max roster size is 56 players. That means if you currently have a 52 man roster, you can only sign 4 free agents. If you plan on signing more, you better start cutting players from your roster IMMEDIATELY.

    If rule number 2 is not strictly adhered to, you will lose out on any number of your free agents that you've won. Think about it - your limit is 4 players but if you are winning the bid on 5 players then 1 player will NOT get signed on the MLM console. In fact, all of them may not get signed. Theres no way for me to tell what will actually happen. What I can say with certainty though is if you do not follow the rule, you will get screwed one way or another. You can easily see your roster size by going to the roster breakdown tab of front office.

    In the event that rule #2 is not adhered to - any free agents that were not signed will go into a second free agency period (which I will now call regular season free agency because the season will be open at that point.) That free agency period will operate exactly like the first period and will last a few days. Eventually there will be no free agency and players will be able to be signed on a first come first served basis.

    Again, very important that you all adhere to these limitations.

    Another thing I wanted to bring up....

    You should be able to plainly see above what your cap situation is when you are bidding on players. It shows you how much cap space you have and how much you have tied up in bids. Your cap space MINUS your cap hits MINUS your money tied up in bids represents the actual money you have to work with in Free Agency. If I find that people are outbidding their salary cap space then going through and cutting players after free agency - whatever players awarded will be taken back from the wrongful winners and moved back into the second free agency period.

    Just want to make sure everyone is being Salary Cap AWARE! (y)

    No. I think to prevent sniping an arbitrary time needs to be set.

    What I can say is it will be sometime Wednesday between say 3pm EST and 6pm EST.

    I agree on that no set time for FA to end so sniping cant occur

    I've given thought to this as well - theres not really a whole lot I can do about this outside of bringing in some outside party with admin control and having them close free agency at some unspecified point.

    The other option is just to allow the sniping and just say it will end at X time.

    I'm doing the best I can with the options I have available.

    Plus, I have the most cap space of any team - its not likely that I'll be outbid anyways (and trust me I'm apparently already in some battles.)

    In order to resign a player does it have to be done before the season starts?

    Not sure - typically we say the trade deadline is the limit but with MLM who knows.
