    Gentlemen,

    With the free agent bidding phase in full swing, we have a situation we need to address. When the bidding was first open last night, there was no rule in place about the length of contracts a team could offer. While league management had discussed implementing a rule, we never finalized it before free agency opened. As of this morning, the rule was implemented that limited the length of free agent contracts offered to the length the player was asking for, or less.

    Last night after FA opened, VinfortheWin inquired with CHUNKNESS about the allowable contracts length he could offer. Since there was no agreed upon rule, and Doug couldn't reach my snoozing ass, he informed Vin that there was no restriction at this time (which was correct). While we implemented the rule this morning, and most of you saw that and adjusted your offers, Vin was not able to do so. Being as such, he signed a handful of players to longer contract than they were requesting. Because of the circumstances, we have deemed this an honest mistake and Vin was not in the wrong. He will be permitted to keep those players, without facing any type of penalty.

    Going forward, EVERYONE must be aware of, and abide by, the rules governing off-season free agency:

    Any owner that breaks this rule going forward, will be subject to disciplinary action and will most certainly face cap penalties!


    IT IS MANDATORY THAT EVERYONE REPLY TO THIS THREAD TO INDICATE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE RULES REGARDING FREE AGENCY BIDDING

    Vin, first you'll want to make sure to indicate that you read and understood the purpose of this thread. ;)

    As for your question, the CFM will only allow you to submit offers to free agents that you can afford. Once you have exhausted your funds and/or cap space, you will not be able to over-extend yourself to any other free agents. So you would need to release players from your roster and/or withdraw existing offers in order to create additional space for you to submit new offers with. I hope this helps.

    Vin to add to Dougs point, if u see in the main screen of the CCM on the top right hand corner it tells you how much "owner funds" u have. Thats different from the salary cap space, now those "Owner Funds" is up to the amount of overall bonus money u can offer to all FA u are targeting.


    Example: lets say u have 10M available on Owner Funds. And u offer player X 5 years/3M/2M contract. In total u offered 5 years 15M salary and 10M bonus, that means that u have uses the 10M from the owners funds and if player X accepts ur offer, then u wont be able to sign anyone else, even if u still have cap space available

    I hope this helps...

    However, I am a bit confused here. I logged on yesterday and saw a post by Doug stating that we were only allowed to offer the length requested by the player. Am I going crazy here?
