    This is our schedule for the offseason. This starts immediately following the OMFL Bowl when it is played:

    Day 1: Celebrate the OMFL Bowl, get the stats down, and advance. All in one day.

    Day 2: Teams must list who went up and who went down in overall. Owners must list players who progressed in blue, and who regressed in red. Teams do not need to list salaries, just progression/regression (so list name, position, overall, and color coordinate). During this stage, teams also make their mandatory cuts as well as a cutdown to 48 players (see OMFL rulebook for more details on the offseason process).

    Teams who do not do this in the 24 hour period will be frozen from bidding on any claims made on FAs in the first 24 hour FA period. No ifs, ands, or buts - NO BIDS YOU MAKE WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE FIRST 24 HOURS IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE SCHEDULE.

    Day 3: Cap guys hustle and get books updated and salaries for offseason posted. Cap increase is announced during this time, if any. Modifiers are LOCKED AFTER THIS DAY UNTIL AFTER FA IS DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Day 4: Forum draft starts, with a leadup to the live draft. The OMFL will have at minimum a 4 round draft with an effort (depending on owners) to get 5 rounds in. NOTE: The day of the live draft and how long the forum draft goes can change depending on how it falls on calendar, since we will try to have most owners be available for the live draft (typically a Sunday evening).

    Day 5: Cap guys hit the books again with rookie pay scales and adjustments.

    Day 6,7,8: FA begins. Teams can put claim tags and send in bids per offseason FA rules. FA lasts for 72 hours. Cuts of non-mandatory players can now be made.

    Day 9: FA freezes; any bids in play continue, NO NEW BIDS allowed. Cap guys refresh books and get final adjustments for upcoming season. Modifiers are UNLOCKED, adjusted, and then RE-LOCKED for ENTIRE SEASON.

    Day 10: New season begins.

    This is the way it will roll, folks. Hope you like the schedule.

    Owners, please note that the board means business about keeping on this timeline. Even a board member will be frozen from free agency for the first 24 hours if any part of this is not complied to by the letter of the law above.

    So if you have questions about this schedule, ASK NOW. Or forever watch free agents NOT come to your city.

    The schedule has been edited. We are trying a new setup this year. Any changed steps will be colored in green.

    Also note that teams are not allowed to go below the roster minimums listed in the cap book rules either.

    Just a fair reminder, folks: ONLY your three mandatory top 20 cuts are cap hit free. Since we are forcing the drop to 48 players, there will be cap hits on the books for ALL teams going into year 2. If you know you will have extra picks, cut accordingly, but be warned: you have cap hits incoming for anyone not off the mandatory cut top 20 list.

    Please start a new front office thread for year 2 (or year 5, however you look at it for OMFL) when the offseason starts. Do NOT post in the old thread, as we restart every year. Your first post in the team front office thread for the new year is the color coding of your progressed/regressed players.

    We want all cuts to be listed like so in your team front office thread for your team:

    MANDATORY CUTS: (82.55 average, round up to 83)
    DT - Ndamukong Suh - 90 overall - above average cut
    LE - Adewalde Ogunleye - 82 overall - below average cut #1
    DT - Corey Williams - 78 overall - below average cut #2

    Other cuts:
    FS - Craig Steltz - 68 overall - $400,000 base salary/$25,000 bonus/1/$425,000 total salary
    etc.
    etc.

    Again, make SURE you log any non-top 20 cuts with salary/bonus/modifier/total salary, just like you would with normal cuts.

    Also, to clarify - NOT CUTTING SUH. ;)

    Please read this post as it has been edited slightly. Items in green are new to the original process.
