THE OFFICIAL OFF-SEASON CALENDAR
« on: December 05, 2015, 02:47:41 PM »
Here you will find the official timeline we will follow for the off-season.  Each time we begin a "phase" of the off-season I will put up a loose "deadline" for that phase so that we all have an idea of how long you will have to do things before the game advances.


Here is the agenda for the off-season, dates/deadlines to come as we approach each.

OFF-SEASON
- Offseason begins:  Owners will discuss their thoughts on last season, your job security, and what they would like to see in the off-season.
- Coaching hires/extensions and Exclusive Rights Free Agency
- Rookie Combine + Deadline to use Franchise Tag
- Rookie Draft / Rookie Contract Negotiations
- Unrestricted Free Agency

EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENCY WILL LAST UNTIL NEXT SUNDAY.

If you do not have your offers submitted by the end of Saturday evening, then we will move on to the combine activities.  I believe this is more than enough time to do your re-signings.

Remember, you can submit contract offers via PM as well, the thread can be used to make pitches etc.... PM is for money/years/PR only.

Alright, due to my lack of time other than some of these evenings, I'm going to extend ERFA through the combine, so while the combine will start on Sunday, ERFA will continue until a later time, potentially another full week.

Alright, MOST people are done with Exclusive Rights Offers, so the rest of you only have until Monday to get your offers finalized before we are locked out of free agency until after the draft.

Initial combine scouting is done for all but one team.

ERFA is coming to a close tomorrow (after ERFA, you can't offer free agents any contracts until after the draft when UFA starts, at which point any unsigned players will be available to sign. 

If you made an offer to a player and he does not accept before the end of ERFA, you will need to resubmit your offer in the UFA period as the sim resets all offers after the draft.

THE COMBINE WILL LAST UNTIL WEDNESDAY NIGHT

ANY COACHING OR GM INTERVIEWS NOT INITIATED BY 11PM WEDNESDAY WILL NOT HAPPEN.

If you are conducting a GM interview, it may lapse into the following day or so, but the combine will officially end Wednesday (IC) and the draft will likely begin on Friday Night or Saturday Morning)
