I withdrew my Sunday vote as the wife has informed me were going to watch Fall Out Boy on the Sunday.

The only date I can make now is the Monday as I've got the kids all weekend. It doesn't matter to me though as I will either let the CPU pick for me or I will offer them off in one job lot!

No problem Jimmy. Just thought I was going crazy for a second. I was sure there were 15 votes for Sunday before.

The playoffs took longer than expected so it won't be possible to draft before Monday at the earliest. But with the Superbowl set for Wednesday I can update the schedule and need everyone to vote again on the new dates.

I got my ps4 with my phone. Don't know what your finances are like but, I pay £62 a month for my sony xperia Z1 phone, 4g, 1GB data, unlimited mins and msgs, premium insurance, with a PS4, one years playstation plus and killzone shadowfall "free".

That was with O2, from 'instore'. Dont know if the deal is still about but might be worthwhile looking into it, as i believe it is a pretty darn sweet deal.

This video is from Madden 13 but the offseason is nearly identical this year. It walks through the whole offseason showing you how things work:


The Free Agent Bidding part starts around 3.00 minutes in.

I know a lot of votes are still missing but I'm a bit surprised that the 17th got so many votes, I assumed most of the league would be half in the bag on St. Patty's day  Smile 

I've been asked a couple times about draft day trades so I wanted to update the first post with information about that. Trades will be allowed during the draft. They need to go through the approval process though too. In order to speed things up I'd suggest posting your trades beforehand if you have something worked out but making the trades conditional. By that I mean, if you want to trade up to the 10th pick, for example, because you want player X, then make a condition with your trade partner that you will only accept the trade if player X is there but you don't have to tell anyone who that player is. That way we can approve the trade beforehand and if player X is there you can process the trade immediately instead of having to pause the draft to get approval from the trade committee.
When you post the trade for approval just make sure to write CONDITIONAL in the topic so we know that the trade may not be accepted if the guy you want with the pick is already taken.

If thats too complicated or something unexpected happens and you want to trade with someone during the draft thats fine. Just know that we each only have 2 minutes to make our picks in the first 2 rounds and 1 minute for all other rounds. If a trade is agreed by two teams we can pause up to 2 additional minutes for trade approval but thats it. Without these limits the draft could take over 3 hours and most guys won't have the time for that. Again no trades are allowed with CPU teams (we don't have any CPU teams at the moment anyway) or teams on autopilot.

Just to re-iterate what Brza said about the time situation regarding in-draft trades. I recently did one on PS3 and basically you work out the trade with your trade partner well before you get to the actual pick (this one was in round 2 and i'd sorted it during round one on chat).

For those of you who haven't been in a draft before there are 2 windows on screen, 1 for 'trade-up' purposes and the other is 'draft board'. The person proposing the trade has to click on the 'trade-up' window and then go into the normal trade proposal screen - whereby you propose the trade and your partner accepts. This is where you need to be VERY aware of the clock. The 2 minutes tick down and only re-set to 2 minutes once the trade proposal is accepted by your trade partner. It is plenty of time but you just cannot dawdle. (I've never seen it happen but i assume if you run out of time your trade partner will lose his chance of selecting a player. Maybe the cpu chooses one or you just plain lose it).

So, to sum up - if you trade up you hit 'trade-up' button then propose/accept trade as normal. (2 mins max). Then you have the normal 2 mins to select your player.

Note - if you have not traded on PS before you will need to know what to do BEFORE in-draft trades. Again, it's simple enough - just practise proposing a trade but do not 'submit'.

Anyone got any questions re draft/draft trades just shout up.

I'll put this here as it's offseason related and probably not worthy of it's own thread.

Where/when can I change players position? I know you can do it in the offseason but I can't see the option for it and in the news feed the Falcons have changed Sean Wetherspoons position so I guess it's available now... but where?

edit: I found it, please ignore.

Good question. Its under "Roster" then select a player then "Edit Player". Just remember the position change rules:
League Rules wrote:
G9. Position Changes - only the following positions are interchangeable:
OLB-MLB
DE-DT
OT-OG-OC
FS-SS
FB-TE
Dual Halfback is allowed in Shotgun Formations and Split Formation

OLB-DE Is only allowed for one player per team. This allows an exception for teams that have switched from 4-3 to 3-4 or vice versa recently without potentially abusing a bug in Madden that gives fast OLBs a huge advantage as 4-3 DEs. Your designated OLB-DE "tweener" should be submitted to the trade committee in the thread "Trade Talks">>"DE-OLB Tweeners" if you wish to use one. You can also change these each season. And the thread will be updated with the designated players in the first post.

Changing CBs to other positions is not allowed.

Damn Internet down all evening, engineers coming out to fix it tomorrow, will I miss the chance to do anything in particular or can anything in phase 1 be done in phase 2 leading up to the draft?
