    Seems to be a known issue. I noticed Gyrene76 is dealing with this in the TMFL, as am I in the GMFL. Is anyone else experiencing this issue in online CCM or offline?

    Shaun Mason Have you heard anything from our insiders at EA?

    I am really enjoying Madden this year... please let this be fixed quickly

    Yeah we've tried everything. Shaun suspected it may have been cost by being over cap in the next year, but I was way under.

    Have you tried retiring and being re-added to same team?

    I thought about that and mentioned it. The problem is you lose all of your coaching Xp. Which is almost 70k for me. However, it may still work, as I'm not entirely sure.

    But what if you spend that coaching XP on upgrades first... then drop/add? Would you keep the paid upgrades?

    That's a great question. I wish we could test that theory.

    It's definitely hurting me. I only have 45 active players due to injures and never being able to sign me FAs early season.

    Test it in anonline test franchise with 1 other player. Sim a season and document which packages you buy - make sure you still put your gameface on the coach you create. Leave the league then rejoin but don't create a new coach this time, choose to play as the existing coach. See if your XP and such is the same.

    The only problem is how do we trigger the cap glitch to test it? As far as we know, it's random.

    That shouldn't be the goal here. The goal should be to find out if there are any negative effects of leaving then rejoining. Then it won't matter if you try it in the TMFL because it won't hurt anything but there will be a small chance that the teams finances are re-calculated and hopefully fixed.

    Good point, I was still thinking about the cap glitch disappearing, not the xp upgrade question.

    Won't you be replaced by a CPU coach when you retire? I thought that happened we had guys leave TMFL. May be wrong

    I thought about that and I'm just not sure - who gets hired in their place? If you join as en existing coach when you play then select the same team, whos the coach?

    I guess the real question is, will the salary cap issue "fix" itself once a glitched team moves into the offseason?

    Has anyone advanced far enough to answer this?

    Apparently it will fix itself according to TOS.

    So, all that has really been confirmed is that the problem corrects itself after the draft.

    Have we heard anything about a cause or fix or patch?

    I just got hit with this glitch in my league Rookie Symposium. Luckily, in the EA thread posted earlier in this thread, someone said EA will address this issue in a patch by Dec. 7th.. *fingers crossed*

    Me too. So I'm not holding my breath or anything, but just passing along what I read in the EA forum. Maybe it's true, maybe not. If it's not then I will try and quit and then re-join the CCM to see if that works..

    We tried and it didn't work for us. We wound up turning the salary cap off so that we could work around the glitch.
