Once we get to playoffs, I ask now that teams/owners that are eliminated to please begin prepping their team for the draft. This still means you MUST, MUST, MUST post every single roster move you make in your roster management thread. Re-signings, cuts - everything. Remember also that cap penalties will clear after the draft. I would appreciate if you all could go through LeagueManager right now and take a screenshot/post what your team salary cap currently looks like. This will keep an accurate record of your cap situation should anything be accidentally deleted or changed. This HAS to be done before your team will be allowed to participate in Free Agency. If some of you are having trouble with this, please let someone know and I'm sure we can help. The AIM chat/blast would be a good place to ask for help as well. See these threads for an example http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/threads/tmfl-tennessee-titans.67243/ http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/threads/tmfl-new-york-jets.67175/ http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/threads/tmfl-buffalo-bills.63267/#post-774659 Remember that your roster must have 7 open slots before the draft. League Manager says the max team size is 75 players, which would be a new development. Emmdotfrisk can you confirm whether or not 75 is correct? It used to be like 56 or something like that? After the draft - progression will take place. Once we see progression, we will be able to make decisions on which players to re-sign. Typically we allow contract restructuring during this time as well but this year we will not - at least not initially. After progression you will have a few days - probably 2, maybe 3 - to decide which players you would like to re-sign and which you will allow to walk into free agency. Remember, the first big free agency period will happen before the start of the season. After the first period ends we will start the season but run additional free agency periods on an as needed basis. After free agency quiets down it will opened up on a first come first serve basis, per usual. Okay lets re-cap 1) Give your team a once over to prepare for the draft. Start to think about which players you are going to keep and which you are going to re-sign and maybe even which you would like to re-structure contracts with. (tentatively) 2) Screenshot & post your salary cap situation and players in contract years in your roster management thread. If you do not do this, you will not be able to participate in Free Agency. If you need help with this, please ask. 3) Restricted FA period or Re-sign period. This is where you will make initial decisions on the players that will no longer be under contract in the new season. Also, you must ensure that you have 7 spots available before the draft. If you do not - the CPU will cut players for you. Trust me when I say you do NOT want the CPU to cut players for you. Any CPU cuts made will be FINAL as it will be your own fault. 4) NFL Draft - something to think about, when do we want to do this? Typically a weekend works best for everyone. 5) Player progression takes place. 6) Restricted FA period or Re-sign period continues. This is where you make final decisions on the players you would like to re-sign. You may decide before the draft on players you would like to cut/re-sign as well. 7) Unsigned Restricted FA's are released into Free Agency pool. 8) Free Agency beings - will last a few days (3 most likely) 9) Season begins - additional free agency periods continue during season 10) Free Agency becomes first come first serve after a few periods (at least 2, sometimes 3 periods) Thats all I can think of off of the top of my head. Expect to be reminded of this process often.
