It's Coming!!!

That's right, it's about time for FFMD to start back up again and after a successful run last year it's time to top that this year.

There's been an influx of new posters this past year, and it's time to get them involved with the old balls. For those who are not familiar with FFMD, this is a forum wide mock draft where you (as a collective group) get to act like the GM of your favorite team. In a week or so, you'll be able to sign up to be the official GM of your team. If you are chosen, you can set up your staff including assistant GM and capologist.

For the newbies, check our last year's FFMD in the GM Mock Draft forum.

FFMD is an awesome experience that has you interacting with the other 31 teams in the NFL and several agents representing players in free agency. The draft portion is just as exciting as each team gets in their "war room" and once they are on the clock they come together with a decision.

Remember, we put this on as a fun thing so make sure everyone gets involved, and don't take this too seriously.

But unlike in the past, we're asking for a non-mods to help run this. We'll announce more when we post sign ups, so be on the look out for it.

Awwwwww yiss.

I propose we have a fire sale and trade Rivers, Weddle, Gates, Allen, etc, and amass all the picks possible. We'll get that quick A+ draft grade when we hold the top 10 picks in the draft.

Sign ups for FFMD are now open. They'll close February 1st (the night before the Super Bowl), so sign up soon or miss out.

Anyone who hasn't been GM recently interested? I'm always willing to do it, but if anyone else wants to step up, go right ahead. (And I do kind of want to be a writer sooo... Laughing )

I have way too little time to do it or else I would. I'm definitely down to be a scout or something.

I really don't have the time to play a major role unfortunately. I can help out occasionally like always though.

Somebody go get Drewby. Or get one of our posters who never come in here like game or Durandal or someone. We've got enough experience that anybody would succeed at GM.

I don't really have enough time to take on a full GM role, but I'll do my best if nobody else wants it.

I'm going to be sitting back and playing God - i.e. the outside force to back-up CWood and the guys running the whole thing.

But I can be a number cruncher here, since no one ever wants that role (capologist) and since I think one of the things they're having teams take into account is a three-year cap window and not being able to just push off a ton of money to future years to clear as much play money in the current one.

Also, I fully support a Philip Faces theme.

Somebody go PM one of the Chargers fans who never posts in this part of the forum. Get like Game2535 or something. If we can't get anyone, I can rescind my writer post and be our GM. Can I still be Asst. GM if I'm a writer?

One of us can take the GM title, just so we don't have an outsider running things. Since we don't really have enough people to make a big staff, everybody is an AGM. We've never done it where one person has complete control anyways. That way we all can put in some work, but not have to give all of our free time to it.

Thoughts?

Yeah, I think that's best. While we are a small staff, I think we're one of the best out there. I think we can all contribute and just need the GM to be one of us to not let a outsider have it.
