The Offseason

Recommended Posts

For those that didn't make the playoffs, your season is over.  This includes my ragtag bunch of banged up dudes.  I thought I'd type something up to put a picture of what to expect in the offseason leading up to next September.


Key dates: 


Now until May 1 - no transaction period.

Contract years conclude on March 1, 2019 - all players will lose 1 year on their contracts at this time.

May 1, 2019 - Free Agent Bidding Opens for the year - please check in with the commissioner prior to May 1 or notify the league of your retirement if you do not want to be involved in the league. 

May 1, 2019 - discussion on league rule changes/scoring changes will commence.

prior to June 24, 2019 - if any owners have not checked in (via email or this forum), a new owner will be sought for that team.

Closest monday to July 15th - Rookie draft begins via email (4 rounds).

August 1, 2019 (or a touch later depending on how the rookie draft goes) - Restricted Free Agent Bidding Opens for the year (players on other teams that have zero years remaining on their contracts may be bid on).

Sunday before the first thursday night game in september - contracts due - back down to 40 years and 20 player cap.


Remember, the 20 player cap is no longer in effect until the sunday before the start of next season.  


Let me know if you have any questions.

1 rule I'd propose to implement now.....We should have to pay our League fees before the Rookie draft, In my mind the draft is the start of the new seasons activities, and we should pay prior to participating in league activities. 


prior to July 15th - League Fees Due (in lieu of when contracts are due (Sunday before 1st game)).
