2015 (Season 5) Off-Season Schedule

Post by brza37 on Tue Jun 26, 2012 9:13 am

The Super Bowl is likely to be played by Thursday this week so I wanted to get the offseason schedule out there so everyone knows how to prepare.

After the Super Bowl I will need a day or two to set up the draft and free agency. In order to set up the draft and free agency I will have to advance the league to Week 1 of the next year. Since everything can be ruined if someone plays a game or makes a roster move on PS3 during the offseason I will be booting everyone from the franchise on PS3 as a precautionary measure. Once the offseason is over I will reinvite everyone on PS3.

After the Super Bowl is played and I advance to the offseason you will be able to check which players have retired on PS3 and also check the current ratings for your players on PS3 or XFN.

Once i have that set up teams will be able to resign their own players who are in the last year of their contracts on XFN under "Front Office" "Sign/Release". Players that are in the last year of their contract will be highlighted red. I will give everyone 1-2 days to do this. All players that currently have only 1 year remaining on their contract that aren't resigned by the end of this period will be released from their teams to free agency. You must have a minimum of 35 players on your roster before free agency starts though so keep that in mind during the resigning period.

After the resigning period, the new league year will begin along with free agency bidding and trades. We will only have one free agency bidding period before the draft this season. The first free agency bidding period will last 1 day. Free Agency Bidding is done on XFN under "Front Office" "Free Agent Bidding". At the end of the bidding period the players will be awarded to the highest bidder ebay-style.

Following Free Agency we will have the live draft on XFN. The CPU for some reason still automatically drops players from your roster if you have more than 48 players so make sure you don't have more than that on your team before the draft or else the CPU will automatically drop someone.

If for some reason you cannot be there for the live draft you can send me a list of players or positional priorities if you want me to make your picks for you. If you don't send a list of players you want or the list is too short then you will just get the highest rated player available at the time (Ks and Ps excluded). You can also send the list or communicate your draft wants to someone else you trust. Just please let me know who that person is ahead of time.

I also suggest that everyone logs into the chat here so that if there are any problems you can notify me immediately so that I can pause the draft. If anyone wants to do a draft day trade the chat is probably the best way to try.

After the draft another free agent bidding period will start that lasts 1 day. After FA bidding closes everyone will have another 1-2 days at the latest to get their roster to the roster requirements of 50-55 players. If you get your roster done earlier and want to play then just PM me so I can ok your roster.

I will edit in the exact dates and deadlines in this post once they get solidified.
Also in the poll mark all the times that you could be online for the draft so that I can schedule a time that works for most people. The draft will take about 1 to 1 and a half hours.

1. Administration Period for setting up the Offseason. [Friday night]
2. New League Year Begins ( Cut down roster to 48 Players, Retirements announced and Draft Class viewable on PS3 Deadline Saturday 10pm)
3. Trades Allowed & Resigning Period [Sunday morning-Sunday July 1 evening]
4. Free Agency Bidding Period 1 [Sunday July 1 evening-Monday July 2 6pm]
5. XFN Live Draft [Monday July 2 7pm]
6. Rookie Signing Period [Monday July 2 9pm - Tuesday 9pm]
7. Free Agency Period 2 [Tuesday 9pm-Wednesday 7pm]
8. Regular Season Kickoff [Wednesday 7pm after Free Agency closes]
9. Final Roster Restriction Date [Thursday 10pm]
10. Advance to Week 2 [Sunday July 8 12noon]

If you have any questions or feedback go ahead and fire away.

I just want to be clear that you can pick more than one date/time in this poll. It seems the last 3 or 4 people that voted only picked one time. By only making one choice you are saying that out of 10 possible choices you can only be available for one of those times?

That will make it pretty hard to set up a draft time where the majority of people are available if everyone just picks one time.

Well Saturday is definitely out of the question and it will be pretty difficult to get things set up in time for a draft on Sunday afternoon since the Superbowl won't be played until Friday night.

Since the majority of owners have voted already and Monday also got 9 votes I am going to plan the Draft for Monday at 7pm London time. The schedule should look like this then:

1. Administration Period for setting up the Offseason. [Friday night]
2. New League Year Begins ( Cut down roster to 48 Players, Retirements announced and Draft Class viewable on PS3 Deadline Saturday 10pm)
3. Trades Allowed & Resigning Period [Sunday morning-Sunday July 1 evening]
4. Free Agency Bidding Period 1 [Sunday July 1 evening-Monday July 2 6pm]
5. XFN Live Draft [Monday July 2 7pm]
6. Rookie Signing Period [Monday July 2 9pm - Tuesday 9pm]
7. Free Agency Period 2 [Tuesday 9pm-Wednesday 7pm]
8. Regular Season Kickoff [Wednesday 7pm after Free Agency closes]
9. Final Roster Restriction Date [Thursday 10pm]
10. Advance to Week 2 [Sunday July 8 12noon]

I will update the first post with this schedule too. And don't forget to vote for the Season 4 Awards. MVP Voting got a bunch more votes than the offensive and defensive player of the year polls. And there are rookie of the year polls available too.

Also, since the next season will be the last one on Madden 12 any cap penalties that happen next season from cutting players with bonuses will be immediately applied to your salary cap.
