Just had a thought.... Okay, I feel dumb for not thinking of this sooner, but it finally dawned on me... After progression/regression (which can affect modifiers), we lock down modifiers for the offseason. So once the progression/regression stage is done, give the cap guys 24-48 hours to get the cap books in order as far as new overalls and new modifiers (if any) for the teams. Once the cap guys lock this down, then trading can begin and FA can begin in earnest. During this time, modifiers do NOT adjust based on possible new modifiers on new teams. So if you trade for a new starting guy, and you cut your old starter, you won't be immediately bumped up and have to pay 2 starters. Basically the offseason is in a few stages: 1. Progression/regression 2. Freeze period of 48 hours to get books in order 3. FA/Trades 4. 48 hour period to prep for draft/do cap books 5. Draft 6. 48 hour period to get books in order for week 1 7. Start week 1 At stage 6, the cap guys LOCK down modifiers going into the new year. They set starters at all positions and those do not change UNLESS teams cut starters/trade starters, in which case modifiers can flex to meet the demand. With 3 cap guys, we could possibly lower that to 24 hours between certain stages, but you get the idea of how the offseason HAS to go to go SMOOTHLY. Does this make sense? Can we agree to this setup and get it in place NOW. We are in week 12 now. GOTTA get this moving QUICK.
