NFL Countdown - Free Agency Rules
« on: September 03, 2018, 04:06:00 PM »
Free Agency

Starts: Tuesday midnight EST 9/25/18  NFL Week4
Ends: Week 13 (Edited to match original FA rule from 2014) 

Eligible Players:
All players currently in the NFL (no college players) not on a NFLC team.

Bid Clock: 48 Hours
Minimum initial bid: $600K
Minimum yearly salary: $600K
Bid Increment: $100K
Minimum Raise: $200K < $10M Total Bid; $1M > $9.9M Total Bid

--No editing of bids.  It is a form of CHEATING and will be treated as such.  This is a rule that is across the board in every league on this site.  It will be enforced here.

*Note* If you released a player, you cannot bid on that player for 30 Days.
- This is in effect for any player released under the releasing players rules.

A manager does not have to have the roster space or cap space to bid on a player.  This is due to the non-guaranteed contracts utilized in this league, a manager can make a couple quick moves to get under the roster limit and salary cap to take on their new free agent signing.

Player Posting

To make it easier to search the board, post players in the following format.
Position - First Last - Team
Example:  QB - Drew Brees - NO
This will make the board look clean and organized.

After a bid is won.
Teams have 48hrs to post roster moves to make room either for salary, roster spot or both for a winning FA bid.

If a team does not make the necessary moves, the team will be assessed a penalty of the next draft's 3rd round pick and the player will go back to free agency. The team will also be assessed the cap hit associated with dropping a player of the winning bid's contract using the scale below.   

Releasing Players Under Contract
All contracts are non-binding, you may release a player or coach at any time. 

Effective with the 2020 league year the league will follow the 75/50/50/25/25 percent rule.  Example: $10M(2024) contract bought out in 2020 will have the following cap hits; $7.5M(2020), $5M(2021), $5M(2022), $2.5M(2023), $2.5M(2024) totaling $22.5M.  The cap hit can be paid in the current year or spread across the life of the original contract years, not to exceed the length of the original contract.  Contracts less than $1M or less per season incur no cap hit.

    Today at 12:56:44 AM
  • Yeagg: Yo Dicky, are you related to indiansnation
    Today at 01:01:47 AM
  • Flash: Tigers-Blue Jays trade is an automatic veto.
    Today at 01:02:13 AM
  • Flash: That is one of the most ridiculous deals I have ever seen.  Come on Dinky, you’re trading and dropping major assets.
    Today at 01:03:42 AM
  • Anthony: Yeah I vetoed
    Today at 01:06:01 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m not trying to destroy the team I’m sticking with it
    Today at 01:08:11 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m not gonna destroy the team and leave I just like these guys better
    Today at 01:09:22 AM
  • Flash: That trade is irresponsible.  Use your head.
    Today at 01:09:30 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m sorry I have Asperger’s syndrome I’m not trying to destroy the team
    Today at 01:10:26 AM
  • Mets Donations Accepted: And we wonder why we don’t get more new owners on here
    Today at 01:10:54 AM
  • Flash: Trade is dead with two vetoes and “I like these guys better” is not good enough.  I don’t usually call GMs out for trades, but this one is beyond any sort of defense. It’s exactly what I warned you about when you first asked to come back to FGM.
    Today at 01:12:07 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: No need to be mean flash it’s my team
    Today at 01:12:31 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m not that familiar with some players
    Today at 01:13:24 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: Because I don’t want to pay for those guys
    Today at 01:14:18 AM
  • Mets Donations Accepted: I didn’t realize there was criteria to join free fantasy leagues here, I must’ve missed the application process when I joined
    Today at 01:15:07 AM
  • Flash: MDA, you know you were taking advantage in this instance, so don’t point fingers of blame.  Many, many trades are approved without incident, but this one is terribly lopsided and cannot ever be justified.
    Today at 01:15:09 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: It’s my team that’s probably why I left years ago I feel like i’m on a witch hunt
    Today at 01:15:34 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I guess I gotta keep Soto even those that’s the reason Itraded him in the first place it helped my mi
    Today at 01:18:04 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m decent at of without soto
    Today at 01:18:29 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: If both of us agree why does it matter flash
    Today at 01:19:11 AM
  • Mets Donations Accepted: Flash, I’m not even discussing the trade, that’s besides the point. I have this issue with almost every league on here when someone feels the need to tell someone else how to run their team. Whether they’re right or wrong in the end it’s their team. If it’s not blatant collusion then it’s not affecting league integrity
    Today at 01:20:57 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I guess I have to keep soto
    Today at 01:23:57 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: Mets can we do a trade for Kliffboom

  • DinkyCarsPlus: I better head to bed it’s almost 1.30am
    Today at 02:24:42 AM
  • DynastyDeacon: I was curious to see the crazy lopsided trade. I am not in the league, but run my own dynasty baseball eague away from this site. From an outsider's opinion that was definitely veto worthy.
    Today at 05:50:27 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m keeping Soto now and am gonna resign at end of 2021
    Today at 12:12:24 PM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I didn’t realize it was lopsided
    Today at 12:13:01 PM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: But I’m fine with our new trade
    Today at 12:13:27 PM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: Flash I posted some Roster moves for fgm I’m most likely gonna keep Juan Soto and sign end of 2021 season
    Today at 01:14:36 PM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m happy I got to keep soto
    Today at 01:15:10 PM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: How long is it til you win a free agent in FGM is it 48 hours without a bid or what I don’t know how long it is
    Today at 01:27:24 PM
