    So heres the deal, with the NFL contract system we are sort of at the mercy of MLM for a free agency model. The problem is you cannot see a players contract demands prior to signing them in MLM. Theres simply a sign option. That being the case, I don't know how we can have any sort of bidding system when in fact we don't know what they demand in the first place. There's simply no basis for any bids.

    That being said, I know a lot of you are anxious to get moving so what we'll do is open things up for trading - as that module appears to be ready to go. Remember, players and draft picks can be traded this year (SCHWING! SCHW-SCHWING!)

    Very Important: As of now I am the SOLE approver of trades. Factors such as position, age, potential and contract will be considered. Last year, everyone griped that I was unfair with trades so we went to a trade committee system. Then everyone griped that trades took forever to get approved. We'll stick with this for now.

    My plan was to start free agency today/tomorrow then plan for starting the Season Wednesday with the first advance next Saturday. Lets hope we can still hit that timeline.

    Lets get everyone joined up on the console as well since we just have a few stragglers on the MLM side.

    Again, DO NOT START PLAYING YOUR GAMES. I will literally go apeshit on you if you do. Ape. Shit.

    Lets hope we get that Free Agency model very soon and we will start FA then kick this bish off.

    If you click on the player to view the player card it shows their contract demands. See below at spikes demands... 3 years @ 9M

    Every free agent is blank? If so tell Keller to sync roster details and roster multiple times

    Free agency looks like it has been rolled out - thank god.

    I really need the guys who have not done the setup tasks to do so.

    I will obviously be watching the Bills game today at 1pm but afterwards I should have some time to sort some more things out. Basically we just need to open up roster management so teams can start releasing/cutting dead weight - I'll go into more detail tonight.

    I'm guessing Free Agency will start tomorrow.

    The only thing I need help with is how cap hits should work - IRL.

    Everything else should be fine.

    It's the amount of guaranteed money divided into the # of years on a contract. For example CJ Spiller has a contract for 30 million dollars over 5 years with 15 million guaranteed. Say he has just finished his 3rd season and you cut him, although he has $14,380,000 ($6,000,000 guaranteed). So for the next 2 years you would have to pay him $3,000,000 as upfront money (signing bonus). You do not have to pay him salary because he is no longer on your roster. So by cutting Spiller you take a $6,000,000 cap hit penalty but save $8,380,000.

    An example of a linear Contract would look like this...

    3 $2,800,000 $3,000,000 $5,800,000 $30,000,000 $15,000,000[/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT][/SIZE]

    5 $4,740,000 $3,000,000 $7,740,000 $30,000,000 $15,000,000

    Sorry I was a bit incorrect here. Year bonus is guaranteed money.
