This is pending board approval, but even if its changed it won't be changed by a whole lot. Just wanting to give everyone the heads up of what is coming: All FA bids are closed (no new ones may be submitted) at 11 pm eastern TODAY. All Trades are closed (no new trades submitted) at 11 pm eastern TODAY. Trades my resume after the start of week 1, but must be processed via trade option in the game - no more release and sign option. Wednesday is for capbook updating and signing off. Season starts Thursday at midnight eastern (Wednesday night) IF both teams capbooks are signed off on new mods and players. Week 1 will run from thursday to thursday due to the holidays. FAs will go back to normal in season bidding. Trades go back to normal in season trade submission.
