    Sorry if that is too small for anyone. All times are EST.

    Objective

    Hold the Draft on a Sunday. Throughout my time here at TSO, that is generally the accepted date for off season gatherings. Since we can't pause the draft over night this year, we will need to start a bit earlier.

    The catch: We either speed up to hit next Sunday or drag through the following week. I would personally rather condense, because every season we save that week we add a 1/8th of a season to our year end total. Hopefully we can squeeze in another season by doing this.

    The times are when we will advance to sections, so Week 16 will be at 10:00 PM EST on 10/10 - 10:00 PM EST on 10/12, etc. Every bit we save in the playoffs the more room we have for off season.

    I chose 8:00 PM for off season advance so everyone should have the ability to do each step in the two-step days in one evening.

    Notes
    • In the "Resigning" stage, you can franchise tag ONE player. Keep in mind this will give them a HUGE salary, but it may be necessary to keep stars.
    • In some of the FA weeks there is also scouting.
    • Rookie Signings will be an auto advance since the CPU signs them for you.
    Anyone see any pitfalls with this? I know it's aggressive, so if you would prefer to do it the slow way, say so now. So, anyone have any issues with this schedule?

    Looks fine to me since I won't be in the playoffs anyway.

    The only problem is I won't be available at 6 pm on Sunday.

    Looks good to me. I actually think the draft time is ideal for me at least, but I doubt we will find a time that suits everyone.

    The only concern I have is the Friday advance, since the entire window happens while I'm at work. Will you be able to do the offseason stuff from the web?

    Looks good Shaun Mason. Didn't we chew through the playoffs in one evening? Would be pretty awesome if we could do something along those lines again.

    It's either that are run until 3 AM, and I can't do that.

    Yeah there is no way to get 32 guys on at the same time. I'll just have to miss the draft.

    The only issue for me is that if I make the playoffs (all but a certainty barring a suicide-worthy collapse on my part) is that I don't know if I'll be able to do those 8 p.m. one day advances on Monday onward. :/

    I'll be with bond and missing out on most of the Sunday fun. Don't get home from work until 845-9ish eastern.

    Work schedule. If I have evening events, things might get hairy. I'll do the best I can on that time frame, but it's election season. By no means hold things up on my account because I might even be able to work with this schedule but can't guarantee anything.

    Might have to relax the sim rule, because I'd hate for someone to get knocked out of the playoffs because I couldn't make it.

    Shaun Mason question on the draft ..... is there a way to disable the in game timer ? Only reason I ask is the menu is clunky at best IMO , I would hate to miss a pick because the menu system stinks. Not saying we take 4min per pick but there a lot of oops factors that can happen with 32 guys , then add in the draft board in game menu that kinda sucks and I think its asking for somebody to get the shaft.

    Aye aye captain. I will be at work during the draft so if there isn't a way to draft people from the CCM I will miss it.

    Should work for me, unless shit hits the fan at work. Is there an option to set a draft board in game?
