LMAO...that's awesome.

Oh, one more piece of news. I got a PM from Swift900 today, and he's dropping from the league as well. Fortunately, he didn't leave the league, so we don't have to worry about any CPU tom foolery. But yeah...the Steelers are open now as well.

One more time...

IMPORTANT

Stage 2 Instructions

NO ONE is to make any contract offers to players who were not on your team this past season. Again, you will ONLY be allowed to negotiate with your own free agents. On 12/13 at 7:30 PM EST, free agency will be opened completely (barring any other catastrophic EA Fuck ups).

Also, when you're done making offers to your players this week, please select "Ready To Advance". This could help us GREATLY cut down on the planned 24 hour window that we're taking for each stage.\

And one last thing, we need everyone in the league to be watchdogs to make sure everything is going according to policy. Things that would stand out is any player having multiple offers on him. That shouldn't be happening right now. Or if you see one of your players with an offer from another team...make sure to say something. I'm not expecting any devious intent from people. But mistakes do happen too.

Do you have what it takes to compete?

If I release a player who has a cap penalty, how does that work? Does penalty just wipe out that cap space? Like if I had 10 million in cap space and released a player with a 5 million cap penalty, do I now have 5 million in cap space? Never really been in this situation before. One of the owners before me re-signed Bryant McKinnie to a big deal and his rating plummeted from an 89 to a 75. I wasn't interested in him before his rating took a hit. Really put me in a bad spot here, especially since Ray Lewis didn't retire and clear his cap number.

Click to release them, it will tell you how much you will save and how much you will have to pay. Just make sure to click not to release them if you don't want to.

This is what I am asking. I have around 10 million in cap space. If I release McKinnie, It says I will free 3.42 in cap room, but incur a penalty of $4.8 million. Does that mean I will lose $1.38 million in cap space if I release him?

Don't think so, since whoever you trade him to will be on the hook for his contract at that point.

Well I don't want to advance again till I find out about these trades lol.

I am in the same boat though. I have no money to sign anyone even if I did. I got $630k to play with.

Then I hope you've clicked "Raady To Advance" ;)

I'm actually done too. It really didn't take long. Just had to find my guys, and decide who I wanted to make offers to. I made offers to 8 of the 15 guys who ended up at free agents. I'm a little nervous though, as I think ever single one of them said their interest in my team was "very low". As long as that's the same as it would have been last week, I'm fine with it though.

Pretty much everyone gets low because the legacy of our coaches is not very high yet.

Hey I asked this yesterday but it got lost in all the madness:

Is there a way I can make my own coach for the saints? I took over this team and I'd like to make my own guy. It's not important haha - just curious.

Edit: I also wish I made a list of guys I couldn't make offers too. :P
