Melton was worried about the coaching staff changes so he didnt accept our offer. I slapped the franchise tag on him.

I can understand him wanting to test the market for more money but I cant imagine the coaching staff change as a viable reason to not sign.

Yeah that was an interesting decision. But I guess they had to deny some of the contracts. Look how many resigned Rolling Eyes

Greetings,

A few issues have arisen, and we are working to correct the issues. Estonianzulu has alerted us that he's going to have spotty internet connection for the next month, so as a result CWood21 is heading up FFMD. Also, TheVillain112 will be running free agency. Any issues regarding the general running of FFMD should be directed at CWood21 and concerns regarding free agency should be sent to TheVillain112 with properly titled PMs with clear thought processeses.

The timeline has been a bit lax due to circumstances that couldn't be foreseen, so as a result the timeline is being adjusted. Here's the new schedule.

Quote:
February 7th- 10 PM- Tender/Closes for EFRA/RFA/Franchise Players
February 12th- 8 AM- Contract Offers Open for tendered players
February 13th- 10 PM- Contract Offers Close for Tendered players
February 14th- 10 AM- Teams able to match contracts for Tendered Players
February 14th- 10 PM- Unmatched players transferred, matched contracts final

February 15th 10:00 AM- Talent Agency Opens Tier 1
February 16th- 8:00 PM- Talent Agency Closes Tier 1
February 16th- 10:00 PM- Tier 1 Signings announced
February 16th- 10:01 PM- Talent Agency Opens Tier 2
February 17th- 8:00 PM- Talent Agency Closes Tier 2
February 17th- 10:00 PM- Tier 2 Signings announced
February 18th- 10:01 PM- Talent Agency Opens Tier 3
February 19th- 8:00 PM- Talent Agency Closes Tier 3
February 19th- 10:00 PM- Tier 3 Signings announced
February 20th- 8:00 AM- Shark Tank Opens
February 25th- 8:00 PM- Shark Tank Closes
February 26th- 8:00 AM- Draft Begins


Any issues with the timeline need to be addressed ASAP to CWood21. Waiting until the issue arises will not help the cause.

Finally, we'd like to remind you that this is a group effort. Any staff member who is acting without the majority approval of his staff will be removed from his or her position after research into the incident. Consider this your final warning, regardless of whether or not you've stepped out of line before.

Thanks for your understanding,
Management

Can someone from the FFMD staff please PM me with a list of the RFAs/ERFAs that have been tendered/not tendered for your team?

I'm not on the staff, but I'd rather have a first, second, and third, and have them all be 2013 picks. If you're going to include 2014 picks, you've gotta have both firsts and maybe a fourth.

It's pretty important to know the team in question we're talking about trading him to, as well.

The way I see it, there's always a trade you can make with/for a guy. I think it's a really good idea to trade Melton, actually, and here's why:

-Yes, our DL will suffer a little bit. That said, he's never going to be more valuable to us than he is right now. If we end up trading him later, he won't be as valuable because of age, performance, and the fact that the recipient team doesn't have the freedom to sign him to THEIR contract

-He's going to be EXPENSIVE. You're obviously going to have high-priced players on your team. I'm not convinced that, at this point in time, DT is one that we can afford to invest in

-What's the return we can get on him? We spent a fourth rounder on him, if we can get three top picks for him, I think it would be silly not to make the deal. To turn down the deal is to say that you don't want to infuse talent and youth into 3 positions, but would rather have a top 10 player at just one. Which situation looks better to you?

Situation 1
-DT Henry Melton
-LB Nick Barnett
-WR Donald Jones

or

Situation 2
-OL DJ Fluker
-LB Khaseem Greene
-WR Stedman Bailey

I tried to keep positions the same over the two situations, but we're not going DT in round one. It does become a need with this trade, but I think we'll continue to throw mid rounders at it, or sign someone in FA.
