    TMFL,​
    As most of you are aware, last year in season two we had multiple teams suffer from the "salary cap glitch", which made them effectively over the salary cap for the entire season. Look troopers, they forced through the season at a significant disadvantage (like Jacksonville not having enough players on defense) for the good of the league. I had hoped that EA would get the issue resolved before season three, where the issue really starts to effect teams. Unfortunately the issue doesn't look to be resolved anytime soon, so I feel it is time to put into place countermeasures to prevent the issue from putting anyone else at a disadvantage.​
    The only real solution at this juncture is to disable the salary cap. Fortunately, most of the in game tools still function correctly, they just stop forcing you to stay within the constraints of the salary cap. I DO want there to be a salary cap, so that means maintaining it ourselves. Luckily, it isn't going to require much out of each of you other than a little bit of diligence.​
    I will do most of the work.​
    So, here is what is going to happen.​
    Tonight, I will turn off the salary cap for the league. I've prepared an initial tracking spreadsheet, which I will update daily to reflect any signings. We will have to track cap penalties manually. This will require a transaction log for trades and cuts. Since we are doing those things, we may as well do one for signings so we have a complete set of data.

    So, going forward:
    • If you sign, cut, or trade a player, I need you to reply to this thread ->(http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/threads/tmfl-transaction-log.91696/).
    • Please tell me the name of the player, the position of the player, any penalties involved.
    • For example, if you cut Eli Manning: (CUT - QB Eli Manning - PENALTY - 3.00 M)
    • You will be able to see an up to date value for your cap in this thread, which will be stickied.
    The important part:
    • YOU are responsible for ensuring you have enough cap room. If you don't manage your cap, I will force you to, up to the point of removing you from TMFL.
    • The game automatically signs your rookies, if you go over because you didn't leave enough money, you will be forced to cut players.
    • This requires your participation. If you don't do what I've asked, I will remove you from the league.
    • MOST OF ALL: This requires you to be honest. Don't be a douche and lie over a few virtual dollars.
    • The assistant commissioners will be looking at this too, you aren't going to cheat three sets of eyes.
    Please acknowledge you've read and understand. If you don't understand, this is the point to ask questions. Ignorance isn't an excuse for not doing what you should.

    So we are going salary capless for the duration of the Franchise (meaning in game, I know it will be managed manually) because once you turn it off you can't turn it back on correct?

    Agreed, great work man.


    (Lol at my $80 million salary; last year was a definite struggle - my Super Bowl opponents had $51 million more towards players).

    Read, and I'm good with this. Let me make sure I'm reading the spreadsheet right, is it saying that I have 35 mil in cap room? And if so, I just need to make sure I don't exceed that figure when doing my FA signings. Shaun Mason
