    Ok guys! Our favorite time is on the horizon, and you all know that I like to go by a schedule. This is a TENTATIVE SCHEDULE. It can get moved up, but it won't get moved back. Our goal in Hard Knocks is to complete as many seasons as we possibly can!

    I am going to start with this week and break it down by each offseason stage.


    Sunday 10/7/2012
    • Week 17
    Tuesday 10/9/2012
    • Wildcard Round
    Thursday 10/11/2012
    • Divisional Round
    Saturday 10/13/2012
    • Conference Championships
    Sunday 10/14/2012
    • HK Bowl VIII
    Monday 10/15/2012
    • Resignings begin. You will have 24 hours to negotiate and try to resign guys to your roster. This is the time you can also Franchise Tag 1 Player. (Be aware if you franchise a player he receives a substantial contract. ryty32 can confirm the increase on the players contract.)
    • Trading re-opens.
    • Scouting continues
    Tuesday 10/16/2012
    • Free Agent Bidding Begins. Remember for Year 1 the Pigskin Pick'em Winners can mark one player off their team that an owner within the conference cannot attempt to sign.
    Wednesday 10/17/2012
    • Free Agency Bidding Continues. This is your chance to see the other teams involved and re-negotiate your bid.
    Thursday 10/18/2012
    • Final Free Agency Bids. This is your last chance to place bids.
    • Scouting Continues
    Friday 10/19/2012
    • Final Scouting Stage begins. This is your last chance to scout players for the upcoming Draft.
    Sunday 10/21/2012
    • Trade block is closed at 12 PM CT for all player for pick, or player for player transactions.
    • NFL Draft commences at 6 PM CT, and will run through the night until the draft is complete. We will have a Skype call going on during the draft.
    • Rookie Resignings stage after the draft. (It automatically signs your rookies). This stage will be skipped.
    Monday 10/22/2012
    • Pre-Season Year 2 Begins.
    During the entire offseason. Your team cannot go below 48 players at any given time. Please be aware of all your transactions.

    I was curious because it's the reverse for me. I'm out every Sunday night and we were skipping a day to hit that day.

    You're able to put picks in? I was under the impression that wasn't the case this year.

    Anyone else prefer Saturday Night over Sunday?

    Remember guys this is Tentative...it is possible we could be done with the HK Bowl on say Friday the 12th.

    I am okay with either Saturday or Sunday, I just am not home on most Sundays from 830am-1230pm, and then 430pm-730pm.

    Yep, a tag is a one year contract at the average of the top five salaries at the player's position. You only have one. In other words, it is expensive.

    How much time are for each draft pick? Im assuming 2:00? Are we putting a cap on in draft trades? I wouldn't think so since it is just pick for pick, but I wanted to be sure.

    Probably will allow 2:00 until it gets ridiculous. No cap on draft pick trades.

    What's the advantage of placing the tag on them?

    They don't hit free agency. So you don't risk losing that player. Maybe you really like a player but couldn't come to terms with their demands, so you keep them and are able to keep working on a new contract.
