    ATTN ALL OWNERS:

    The 2013 Off-Season schedule is being looked at right now, and will depend on the speed of the playoffs. I would LOVE to have the playoffs done by tuesday, but that is wishful thinking for the most part. If that did happen we would hold the draft on Sunday 01/20 @10AM EST. If we finish the playoffs later than Tuesday, I will most likely slow down the off-season to have the draft of Sunday 01/27 as most owners are available on Sundays.

    I need ALL owners to register for their Skype account as the Skype chatroom will be our main line of communication during the draft and the off-season stages. I will still post all announcements in the forums, but EVERYONE needs to be in the chat. As of right now, these are the owners who are NOT in the skype chat:

    you're gonna have the draft at 7amPST/8am MST? seems a bit early if you ask me. I won't be there either way as long as it's on sunday, but don't you think you should put this thing up to a vote see when works best for everyone? like we did last month after season 1 of the original?

    also, as for the skype thing, I could go through the mumbo jumbo of creating an acct. and signing up, but I would never have it on. So that's why I haven't signed up as of yet. Just not interested in creating an account for something I won't use. I check this site everyday, isn't that good enough?

    *edit* and sorry if i'm coming off as a bit of a grump... I'm a Bronco fan and, well, ya... gonna take some time :)

    No you don't have to make a skype account. But going off of our last draft, hardly anything was discussed on the boards during the draft. So if you are not participating in the draft anyway, it's your choice really. It is a tool we use for owners to contact each other quicker and easier, and also to build league activity. The Skype chat is open 24/7, so it is not going to be used only for the draft. Your choice.

    As far as the draft. This is the same time we held it at last year, and the draft is roughly 1.5 - 2 hours long. Both of the Championship games are going to be on 01/20 so we can't have the draft during the games. Therefore, it will have to be either before or after. I doubt anyone is going to want to hold the draft at 11PM EST Sunday night. So that only leaves us with Sunday morning. It is easier to get guys on before their day starts and before they have stuff to do, as opposed to night time. So that's why we are having it in the morning.

    ATTN OWNERS: The first week of the Off-season is here! I would STRONGLY recommend joining the league Skype chat as the off-season can get pretty hectic and that is the quickest way to reach me.

    I will advance to the next stage of the off-season tomorrow night @ 12AM EST

    In addition to the Team Management Rules we currently have.. there will be 2 new rules put into effect this year.

    Contract Guidelines

    1. All contracts that are longer than 2 years in length or have a total value exceeding $3.00M, must have a signing bonus of atleast 25% of the value of the total contract.

    EXAMPLE: 4YR contract for $7.5M base and $2.5M bonus = VALID contract. Base + Bonus = $10M. Bonus ($2.5M)/$10M = 25%
    ................4YR Contract for $8M base and $2M bonus = INVALID contract. Base + Bonus = $10M. Bonus($2.00M)/$10.00M = 20%.


    2. Length of deals: you may not offer more contract years to a player than they are asking for.

    EXAMPLE: QB Tom Brady wants a 4-year deal. You may offer him a deal between 1-4 years. If you offer him a 5-year deal and he accepts it you will eat the cap penalty when you drop him for failing to comply with the rule.

    *IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THESE RULES ASK BEFORE YOU OFFER A CONTRACT. IF A PLAYER ACCEPTS AN INVALID CONTRACT, YOU WILL BE FORCED TO DROP HIM AND TAKE THE CAP HIT*

    Big time bummer by joining a couple weeks to late (game wise). Reggie Bush, Sean Smith, Randy Starks, Chris Clemons all wont even negotiate with me. Some of my best players... bleh! Tough times ahead lol
