    Ok the 2nd offseason is here.
    I need everyone to get on MLM and make the necessary re-signings/releases before I advance past the SB and to the draft.

    Everyone needs to get down to 48 players on their roster prior to the draft.

    Given that MLM still has some deficiencies, we need to come up with a decision. Should we switch to XFN like the TMFL did and use that site to run everything or stick with MLM? MLM will cause us to use the console to draft again, instead of the site. Contracts are also a pain. MLM we are already established, but I will have to do some busy work with cpu teams and contracts before we can do FA and the draft.

    Please respond here with your thoughts, but in the meantime still take care of resigning and cutting down to 48 regardless...

    A plus for XFN is that you can draft from the CPU or even a phone for those that can't make it, it also tracks traded picks ... But yes caps are a hassle, MLM handles that but fails at everything else .... I'm undecided

    I have no allegiance either way. Whichever one makes the offseason process more streamlined would be better imo though. I may be biased since I have a traded First round pick though lol

    I've never used the other one mentioned, so I really can't comment. I do enjoy the draft on the console, though.

    After looking through XFN's site I feel like that would be the best way to run this. I like MLM, but the amount of options that XFN has would make the league run smoother I think, and that is never a bad thing.

    I am leaning towards XFN at this point, but I want to hear back from some more guys

    Leaning towards XFN ? What are your thoughts on the cap ? Do you have a format in place or are you up for ideas?

    They handle cap and salaries well. My only concern is if XFN thinks it is season 1 and assigns salaries that way... That is the only thing holding me back, but for the future it will be a good move. I have heard some news that MLM wont really be getting many or any more updates atleast for the near future, so what we have now is what we may have to work with in the future. I dont think that is good enough. There may be a few bumps in the road moving over but the sooner the better maybe,...

    Definitely XFN. I don't like MLM. Speaking of which, I think my cap space is messed up. My cap hasn't moved since last season, making it impossible for me to re-sign ANYONE. I have a ton of overpayed guys whose contracts are up, which should've open up some room for me

    Ya I hadnt moved the contract years yet, but when I do, all unsigned guys will go to FA. These guys needed to be re-signed beforehand. This is a limitation of MLM ot a degree

    You pretty much have to drop guys that you're going to let expire to open up room. Only way we have figured out.
