Season 3 Draft

Post by brza37 on Mon Feb 06, 2012 11:34 am

Since the Super Bowl is likely to be played tonight or tomorrow I don't want to hold the league up until sunday for the draft. Just as many people seemed to be open to thursday for the draft too since a couple weren't able to vote here. So I will plan the draft for 9pm GMT on Thursday Feb. 9th. Please post here whether or not you'll be able to participate.

Unfortunately League Manager draft console has let us down again and is too buggy to use for our draft. So we'll have to draft on PS3 again. After the Super Bowl you will be able to view the draft class on League Manager and PS3 though.

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

We will have free agency after the draft again this year because it worked well that way last year. Because the 40 man mimimum roster is only important for keeping free agency fair it won't be necessary to have that many on your roster before the draft since each team will get at least 6 players during the draft. Before free agency starts though you must have 40 players on your roster.

All players that currently have only 1 year remaining on their contract that aren't resigned by Wednesday 10pm will be released from their teams to free agency. If you don't know where you can resign players there is a tab under "Front Office" on LM called "Contract Year Players". There you can offer players contracts if the contract fits under your current year cap. To make room for players under the salary cap you can cut players that you don't want to resign, just remember to post in the Waiver Wire first. Also remember you will need about $5-10 million in salary cap room for your rookies so save some space if you can.

After the Super Bowl is played and I advance to the offseason you will be able to check which players have retired, the current ratings for your players and also look at the ratings of the rookies and set your draft boards on PS3. I suggest setting up your draft board on PS3 because with the amount of CPU teams that we have it can be difficult to follow who was picked. Each user team will have 60 seconds to make his pick for the first 4 rounds. For the 5th to 7th round I'll lower the time to 30 seconds to speed things up.

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.

Also all teams that traded a draft pick MUST be logged into the chat because they will have to make the traded pick for the other team. When the pick comes up then the team who should have the pick should post who they want in the chat. Then the team who traded the pick will have to make the pick on PS3. Afterwards I will put the player on the right team in LM.

After the draft Free Agency bidding will be unlocked. The bidding period will close Saturday the 13th at 12 noon GMT. After FA bidding closes everyone will have till Monday 8pm GMT 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.

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

Below is the draft order for user controlled teams:

1. Bears
4. Raiders
14. Saints
16. 49ers
17. Cardinals
19. Jets
21. Panthers
23. Steelers
26. Titans
27. Eagles
28. Rams
29. Packers
30. Texans
31. Ravens
32. Vikings

Traded Picks:
1st Round - Titans to Eagles (1.26)
1st Round - Vikes to Titans (1.32)
2n Round - Vikes to Panthers (2.32)
3rd Round - Bears to Eagles (3.1)
4th Round - Bears to Jets (4.1)
4th Round - Cards to Bears (4.17)
4th Round - Eagles to Titans (4.27)
5th Round - Vikes to Panthers (5.32)

Tell Eder to skip practice. Its too damn cold for that stuff anyway!

By the way, the draft class is viewable on PS3 and the EA site. For whatever reason its not possible to view the draft class ratings in LM anymore.

The Bears are on the clock with the first pick.

I just advanced the league year on LM and the unsigned players were released to free agency. Some teams are now over the cap or too close to it to sign their rookies. I may extend free agency to sunday so everyone has a chance to readjust their rosters and cap situation. All teams should be under the cap by saturday so that no potential free agents get left out of the bidding process.

That sucks - I thought league manager updated after we dropped/re-signed players. From thinking I had $11m spare cash, I now have $500k. Looks like a couple of high earners will get traded or released then.

Yeah its possible. If flash can let me know about how they transfer the contracts over I can look into it this weekend. Also what happens to the stats from years past? Is it possible to transfer them over too?

I like XFN too and would be up to moving over there. The problem is the contracts would need to be completely redone. I contacted the XFN guys multiple times about it and even offered extra payment if they could help with the transfer of contracts from LM but they keep saying its not possible. They even said that maybe we should just wait till next year because XFN will be free for Madden13.

I am waiting on one last response from XFN and if its positive then we might be able to make the move. I will need people willing to help with contracts though and also to chip in about 4 Euro per person for the XFN subscription cost.
