Preperation for Madden'11 : Ten Year War Starts today! Everyone needs to do their teams Salary Cap Spreadsheet before I send them an invite. No Spreadsheet finished and posted, no invite, simple and sweet. Friday night August 13th, will start an abbreviated FA section, Monday August 16th will start the season. So if you don't get your sheet done before Friday night (ok Saturday morning) if you want to participate and pick up some FAs before the start of season 1. Below is the template that you need to use, download it, fill it out with regards to your team, them repost it on Google docs as (your team's name)_Salary_spreadsheet. Then go to share, share to anyone that has the link (DO NOT CLICK THE BOX TO MAKE IT EDITABLE BY ANYONE THAT HAS HE LINK), then the link will appear in that small window at the top, copy that link and post it in this thread, so I can collect them and keep them all in one place. Salary Cap Template Spreedsheet Column Explanations: Name : first initial, last name will do. Make sure to put them under the correct position header. Ratings : This is the overall rating of the player at the time of signing. Intially it will be the overall rating of the player out of the box. Year Contract was signed : Starting off everyone will have a 1 in that column, as if they all signed at the beginning of this season. Anyone that signs after this season and before season 2 starts will have that number changed to 2. Contract Length : Initially you will go into a offline franchise mode for Madden'11 and take the contract length for that specific player. When you resign, and sign people later you will use the Salary Cap Breakdown directions to get the proper contract length. Ex. Steve Smith signed a 4 year deal before the 2009 season, which means he has 3 years left. So Steve Smith's "Year Contract was Signed" will = 1, and his contract lenght will equal the amount of years left, which is 3 years. So for the proposes of the Ten Year War Steve Smith signed a 3 year deal before this season. Salary : This is determined by the Salary Cap Breakdown directions. MAX $: Initially leave this blank. This column will be used later for guys that fall into special categories like leading the team or the league in passing, rushing, receiving, sacks, ints, etc... Any questions, post below, also I will also be on XLive after 9pm est Tuseday-Sunday night if you want to go through your speedsheet and have a live chat with any questions you might have about the spreedsheet.
