Offseason 48 Schedule

Congrats to Ismith on his 28-0 EOTP Madden Bowl XLVIII victory over Hellcat!

We’ll tentatively be following the below schedule for the offseason. I will be tagging everybody in chat to update you on the schedule as we advance.

If everybody completes their re-signings quickly we’ll be able to advance to free agency early.

RE-SIGNINGS

We will be advancing past re-signs Sunday (04/07) night at 11:59 PM Eastern.

For this offseason, the maximum contract length you can offer is five years.

FREE AGENCY

We’ll again be using a revised system for free agency this offseason. Make sure to follow the below rules or you will be directed to release any players you sign:

  • The maximum contract length allowed is five years
  • The maximum bid amount is 150 points
  • The minimum bid amount is 30 points

Admins will be watching bids prior to every advance to ensure these three rules are followed. Any players signed to contracts that violate these rules must be immediately released.

Get your bids in early and often leading up to the first advance if you’re really worried about losing out on players – many high profile players now sign on the first FA advance.

All listed advances are within 15 minutes of the posted time to avoid blatant sniping.

  • First Advance: Monday (04/08) 8 PM Eastern
  • Second Advance: Mon. 10 PM Eastern
  • Third Advance: Mon. 11:59 PM Eastern

ROOKIE DRAFT

The 2022 NFL Draft will be held at 9:00 PM Eastern on Tuesday Apr. 9.

The first round I will be giving people 5 minutes per pick if they want it to negotiate trades – if you want to pick quicker feel free. Each round after that I will skip people who either A) did not show for their first round pick or B) did not RSVP for the draft and are not active in the chat at the time. Rounds 2-7 will proceed at normal pick clock.

As mentioned above, please RSVP to the draft post in the scheduling thread to indicate either attending or not attending.

Remember that all trades require approval from the committee so be prepared for late trades to take some time to be approved.

RULE CHANGES

Multiple rule revisions and additions will be posted during the offseason (in a further post once finalized). All users will be required to read, understand and agree to the new rules prior to the start of Season 49.
