    Just want to take a second to apologize for wasting an enormous amount of everyone's time tonight. Not only did we not start even close to on time but I was so busy trying to work out issues that I was unable to stay as responsive as I would have liked to, to keep everyone in the loop. Beyond that, I want to apologize to everyone now as well because now we are basically starting a new file. The old one is not entirely broken but the amount of work that it requires and the likelihood of fixing all the problems is so remote that its not worth the effort. Again, my sincere apologies.

    Its not a reflection on XFN but more our preparedness and knowledge of the system. Tonight was brutal but I did learn a lot of things that will prevent the headaches in the future.

    Essentially we will be starting from RFA - this time from the correct starting position.

    We can discuss whether or not we want trades to carry over. They can be not required, required or optional. Up to you guys.

    I will fill out more detail in the morning but essentially we've started a new file and we have to get everything back up to speed on it.

    The file is TMFL2 and the password is 1234 - thats how you join on the console. I don't think we'll have to rejoin on XFN if all goes according to plan.

    We should redo season 1 with updated rosters.

    looks like we simmed season 1...my question though is how do wedo the draft as now teams that made the playoffs i.e the giants and saints all moved into to 7 picks, while teams that did poorly moved into the playoffs..i.e cle, wsh, stl.​

    I remember we did that with the SMFL TMFL merger and it worked out well. It kinda gave everyone added excitement.

    I think we used updated rosters and then simmed one season.

    I've sent out a tweet to Donny Moore - last year that is how I got it done. We'll see.

    He has a draft order, and in XFN he can manually create the draft order

    This.

    The draft order from this season will be unchanged.

    The only things that have changed will be any Free Agents you signed, any trades you've made and then obviously progression.

    Unfortunately its unavoidable at this point - but hopefully we'll be back on track and working through RFA again very soon.

    Not yet - but should be able to tonight.

    The superbowl hasn't been played yet - Frisk and I have to coordinate so that someone actually logs in as one of the superbowl teams and supersims the game. If we sim the game, we will be right back where we were with the old file. If we could have simmed the superbowl already, we would be in RFA/Cut player mode right now.

    But I'd encourage you to use the XFN site and start planning what you're going to do - especially in your case where the contract situation is so dicey.

    Unfortunately that is something that will fall by the wayside as well. We won't run a full fledged FA period until after the draft.

    If you have already joined the new file - yes please do.


    As long as we don't advance PAST the Superbowl, we'll be fine.
