    First, we will give everyone until Sunday at 8 cst to take care of preseason cuts. You will be able to cut 3 guys off your squad with no cap penalty. You do not have to make any cuts, but it is there for those who want to use it. After that we will have a brief free agency period, and I am trying to work out the issues with MLM to let that happen smoothly.

    Post all cuts in your team management thread. Do not cut them on MLM, I will manually do that.

    Also plan on playing the first year now and simming year 2. With free agency not working on MLM yet, playing season 1 should give the site a bit to hopefully have it up and running for the first offseason.

    I am extending cuts to Monday 8 cst. After that point, we will have a 2-3 day (depending on demand and activity) Free agency period using MLM. I will give further instructions on how that will be implemented tomorrow.

    I can do all the cuts, just list what cuts you want to make and I will manually go in and do them all.

    Tonight at 8 cst is the deadline for free player cuts. after this we will start the free agency bidding process using the MLM function. To do this, go into MLM and free agents tab. Select the player you are interested in and click the bid button. Once you do this, you have a choice of offers to give the player. Once player bidding starts, he will be on the clock for 24 hours. Once bidding has ended, I will reward each guy to the highest bidder. I imagine this will take 2-3 days. In addition to bidding for the player on MLM, make a new thread for each free agent in the team management sub forum. The thread title should be the player name and position and overall

    ex: Terrell Owens - WR - 85
    in the thread, write out the team bidding and the contract offer. Always reply to each player thread if there has been a previous bid and dont start a new thread for the same player. This will help me keep track of bid time periods and who goes where and as a good GM tracking tool.

    It is now time to be active in trades if you would like to make any. keep in mind, trading with cpu teams is discouraged but allowed. they will only be accepted if the deal is right. user trades get a lot more leeway

    I'm only seeing the "sign" player option does the BID option come later on in the process

    I think you have to change the FA, because we are signing players straight to our team without bidding.

    no, it will be the year bonus times the remaining years on the contract. Check out the league description thread. I put a pic of CJs contract and a short example
