Hey guys. Although we are only 2 sims in, I think the excitement level is pretty high and hope everyone is enjoying things so far. We had some hiccups with people getting the file, a couple of late starters and a boneheaded commish messing up trades. But overall... I think things are going well. Just wanted to open up the discussion on some things to either inform, or get some opinions. So please weigh in with your thoughts. First, I want to remind everyone that we currently have the new Collective Bargaining Agreements enabled which are effective for the 2012 season. The change that has the biggest impact on you is this one: Players who spend the entire year on your roster and become free agents, if signed by another team are elligible for compensation. If this player is signed by another team, AND his contract is in the top 125 of all players (around $16 million I believe) then two things happen. The team who signs the player loses their 1st round pick, unless it's in the top 10. In which case they lose their next highest pick. The team who lost the player, receives an extra draft pick in the supplemental round (basically round 2) So with the above in mind, please keep this in mind depending on your current team philosophy. If you're in rebuild mode, it may make sense to let your stud players go so you grab an extra pick. Especially if at the deadline, you are not getting an offer which is close to what you would get in the draft. Also as I was looking at waivers/DFA, I realize I made a bit of a mistake. So please keep an eye on the time left in your DFA area. It is now changed to 12/22 days respectively. As it is right now, after the next sim, you only have 1 day to assign a guy. So if you forget, youre screwed. The new settings make it much easier to keep an eye on this, as youll have 1 whole sim once waivers expire. Only other thing I want to confirm is that everyone is happy with the sim pace. Personally I like the 10 day sims. But just wondering what everyone else thinks? Also wondering if anyone would like to add a 4th sim per week? I'm fine either way, just curious. As for longer or shorter sims, Im open to listening to your thoughts. Obviously, anything higher than 15 day sims would probably not be advised. That's all I have for now. Thanks guys.
