Please Note that at all times The Forum Rules are in effect and must be followed. Additionally the following rules are in effect for the Footballs Future Mock Draft:

1. No Chatzy, off site forums, chats or communication methods.

Google Documents (Without chats or other communication methods) are allowed for the sake of record keeping and big boards. Please Forward a link to your Google Document to me for review. This rule is not negotiable or up for debate. Any found violation of this rule will result in the following punishments.
Quote:

1st Offense- 5 place drop of Current Round draft pick (ie: From pick 20 to pick 25, all other picks move up one spot) and immediate removal of guilty participant from position of authority.
2nd Offense- 10 place drop of Current and Next Round Draft Picks, and removal of guilty participant from FFMD
3rd Offense- Forfeiture of current draft pick, 10 place drop of next two round draft picks, and removal of guilty participants from FFMD.



Any further violation will invoke the 3rd violation punishment.

2. No “Secret Threads”

A secret thread is an old post in a long forgotten thread which is edited for the sake of private communication. This is not allowed and any violation will result in the following punishments:


Quote:
1st Offense- Deletion of post and removal of guilty participant from position.
2nd Offense- place drop of Current Round draft pick and immediate removal of guilty participant from position of authority.
3rd Offense- 10 place drop of Current and Next Round Draft Picks, and removal of guilty participant from FFMD
4th Offense- Forfeiture of current draft pick, 10 place drop of next two round draft picks, and removal of guilty participants from FFMD.



3. Google Documents and Codes

Google Documents and Codes are allowed. A link to the Google document must be provided to the FFMD Commissioner (me) to ensure fair play and avoid rule violations. Any member of the staff of a team's FFMD board must be given access to the Google document and any code. Failure to meet these requirements can result in the removal from the team staff.

4. Have Fun

The objective of FFMD is to have fun and enjoy yourselves. It is not a perfectly realistic offseason, it is not a total fantasy world. We are attempting to recreate and have fun. If you are not having fun, tell me, and we will work to make things better. Please remember this in all your interactions in the forum. There are no “winners” in this game, only participants.

Any member who wants to be involved, should be involved. Please avoid excessive use of PM's, this is what we have war rooms for. We all want to enjoy ourselves, so remember when you are interacting with other teams that this is about enjoyment, not profit.

NOTE: We reserve the right to add rules as needed to protect the integrity of the game.

ERFA Rules

An Exclusive-Rights Free Agent is an NFL player who is not under contract, but has only two years of NFL experience. If your team has an ERFA you may choose to offer these players the minimum contract of $510,000 for players with 1 year of service, $585,000 for players with two years of service, or opt to release him from the team. At that point the player will become an unrestricted free agent. This period will coincide with the RFA period. You will either offer your ERFA player a contract or release them. Please keep all your ERFA’s in one post so it is easier to follow for everyone involved. There will be no cap penalty for releasing a ERFA if signed to the tender.

Please post only once for all of your ERFA's include both the players you are tendering and the players you are not tendering. You may edit your post freely until the deadline at which point the thread will be locked and all ERFA offers will be made official. Please include ALL ERFA's in your post. Any EFRA not included will be released.

RFA Rules

A Restricted Free Agent is a player whose contract has expired but who can be “tendered” an offer by their previous team. RFA's will be assumed to sign their RFA contracts without hold outs. Tenders for RFA's can be in the following amounts:


Quote:
1. The greater of $1.33 million or 110% of Salary (Tender based upon drafted round)
2. The greater of $2.02 million or 110% of Salary (2nd Round Tender)
3. The greater of $2.88 million or 110% of Salary (1st Round Tender)



Opposing teams then have the opportunity to offer a contract to the RFA. If the player accepts the contract, the player's old team has an opportunity to match the contract. If the contract is matched, the player remains on their previous team for their new contract. If the contract is not matched, the player joins their new team and compensation (see above) is given based upon the tender issued. For the third tender, the team must give up a draft pick equivalent to the round in which a player was drafted (So: if a player was a 3rd round pick, the new team would be forced to give 3rd round pick to sign the player). For 1st Tier Tenders, no pick higher than a 2nd round pick may be given.

Please post all of your RFA tenders (And non tenders) in one post. You may edit your post freely until the deadline at which point the thread will be locked and all RFA offers made official. Please include ALL RFA's in your post, any RFA not included will be released.


Franchise Tag Rules

Any player who does not sign a contract extension may be given a Franchise Tag. A Franchise Tag is automatically accepted by the player and will count against the cap in full. Please see below for Franchise Tag Numbers. During the RFA signing period, all teams will have the opportunity to offer a contract to a Franchise Player. If the contract is accepted, the host team then has the opportunity to either match the contract or receive two first round picks in return and lose the player immediately to the opposing team.

If a team elects not to use a franchise tag, they may use a Transition Tag. The Transition tag works exactly like the Franchise Tag except that there will be no draft compensation if the player is signed by another team.


Values: TBD

Tag And Trade

Free Agents may only be traded if they resign. Tagged players can not be traded in the year in which they are tagged.

Extensions on Tags/Tenders

Tagged players may be extended to help lower their cap number. However, to prevent teams from severely backloading the contracts the cap hit in the first year can NOT be any less than 50% of the positional franchise tag value, so if the franchise tag is at 12 million than the first year cap hit can not be below 6 million.


Extensions and Restructures

You may extend or restructure any contract you have to turn any base salary (excluding the veteran minimum salary) into a signing bonus. You are will be allowed to restructure players during the allotted time prior to free agency. Any more cap space will need to be created by releasing your players. Restructures and extensions may reduce current year cap hits by up to 50%.

Re-signing of Pending Free Agents

Teams will be allowed three attempts to re-sign pending free agents prior to the start of unrestricted free agency. Keep in mind that most players will want to test the open market, so it will take a very good offer to keep them from testing unrestricted free agency. Do not expect to re-sign all three players you offer contracts to in this period unless you go above and beyond market value. For those players that you do not re-sign in this period, you will still be able to offer them a contract in unrestricted free agency.


Unrestricted Free Agency: The Talent Agency

All Contract will be created using a template in Google Docs. You may choose either a backloaded, frontloaded, or flat contract offer, along with your desired base salary and signing bonus. You may also include a “pitch” of no more than 300 words including any relevant information as to why a player should select a given offer. This can include things such as playing time, play system, coaches, fellow players, etc. You will submit offers to your assigned agent, who will choose the top 3, and make a recommendation to the deciding committee, which makes the final decision.

Unrestricted Free Agency: The Shark Tank

Any free agent not represented in the Talent Agency will be placed in the Shark Tank. These players are available for any team to bid on. The Shark Tank will be conducted in Google Docs this year. To bid, enter your team, the player, and the amount you are bidding into the form, and track the bidding on the Google Doc.

Contract Information

The initial contract offer must match the minimum contract per year served requirement below. The number on the left is the years of accrued experience in the NFL, the number on the right represents the minimum contract that must be offered for the player's service. These numbers will be listed on the Free Agency database and must match for an offer to be valid.


Quote:
0 - $435,000
1 - $510,000
2 - $585,000
3 - $660,000
4-6 - $745,000
7-9 - $870,000
10+ - $970,000



Please Note: Only General Managers and AGM's may post bids

Any team or individual found to have bid illegally as another team will be expelled from the game, and their respective team will forfeit their highest Day 3 draft pick.


All contract offers are considered per year deals and will count directly against the cap. Bids must be in place for 12 hours without being upped before a player signs, and all bids must be at least $50,000 higher than the previous bid. If you release a player signed in the Shark Tank, you will incur a dead cap hit of 50% of the player’s salary.


Trades

All trades agreed to by both parties will be automatically accepted. There is no Trade Council. The only reason a trade would be voided is if a rogue GM agreed to a deal that was clearly rejected by his War Room.

I was a National Scout last year, would be happy with that again.

If not, Tugboat and I can hang out in Canada, reminisce about The Cat and have cushy vague jobs.
