    Okay it's shit or get off the john time

    A few things that need to be ironed out.

    Trade Committee:
    Who the hell is on this? HotRod, OMLawDog, who else? I have the forum set up, just need to know who is getting permissions.

    FA/contracts
    What are we going to do about this? Are we going to have a vote/poll? Honestly, I don't think I've seen something that I can 100% be on board with. We have a lot of good ideas, but I think there is still more work to do here. Likely a hybrid of a couple of different setups. The biggest debate lies between two pivoting points. To use a traceable, scalable salary cap system or go without it with some sort of fantasy style FA draft and establish a preference on how much turnover we want to see from season to season.

    Rosters
    How many people are for playing with 'as shipped' rosters? What about doing a small amount of adjusting? Personally, there are some trades that aren't reflected that put some teams at a disadvantage (e.g. Raiders trading Derrick Burgess for a future 3rd-rounder next year. I feel like we should either reverse the trade or give him the draft pick and preferably the later. Maybe have both the owners agree on one). I would like to see those adjustments made to help balance out the league.

    Get registered on the Online Franchise
    Still a bunch of people who haven't signed up yet.

    Expecations
    I wouldn't expect us to start anytime soon. We are likely going to want to have EVERYTHING sealed and signed before we start.



    I'm sure I missed stuff. I'll add them if needed.

    I dont know how any free agency is possible when the commish has no power over anything, he cannot edit rosters, cut from CPU teams, or veto trades. This is not an online franchise at all just a league with real schedules.

    Hopefully we can still work it to be fun, i wanna get started

    I believe the trade committee is myself, you, jfosh, jms, and juggs.

    As far as Free agency I don't think there's much desire for a cap system. I think people want to run it the way they did it in the PC leagues. For FA signing preseason and during the season it should follow a waiver wire system
    with the original order based on team overall rating. With rosters I know the next roster update directly affects my team but I'm prepared to play without Vick on my roster, there has been discussion about that. I kinda agree with the whole keeping track of the real trades and implementing the traded picks.

    Ok so since the decision to go with the in box rosters have been made, I have to ask about current free agents. Once whichever system we use is in place are we going to be able to sign players?
    I need help at olb and I only have 2 qbs on my roster, so I can definitely use some help and add a few guys. Is this going to be allowed? Or are we rolling with these rosters for the season? Except for trades obviously.

    I think that my vote would go towards a salary cap system. What kind of commish powers do you have Ryno? Can you move players around if you need to? I'm not even sure how feasible this is.

    An idea I through out a while back was to use a "dummy" franchise (maybe HotRod would hold on to it) with all 32 users controlled. Salary cap, contracts, and whatever else can be tracked using that. At the end of every season, he could post up team salary cap info and whatever through his idea of a public spreadsheet. It might be flawed, but at least we can blame it on the game.

    My vote would go for the Fantasy system. It will run much faster and smoother than a finance system unless the Commishes are willing to put in massive man hours. It's not just free agents - it's resignings, draft pick signings, salary cap hit for releases, etc.

    I would be willing to help track stuff.

    I posted a couple of ideas I ripped off OS in the thread about this.
