WELCOME TO TOTAL CONTROL MOCK DRAFT

Hello! Welcome to the Total Control Mock Draft. This is a full scale offseason mock with free agency and the draft. This is an individual mock where the GM will have full autonomy to run their team how they wish. However, we’d like to expand the knowledge of our mock to the entire Football’s Future world, so the mock as the option to expand to your subforum where you can get suggestions, ideas and feedback from others while they get a chance to look and see what TCM is all about. Look through our overview of the mock below and we hope you join us! The mock is looking to begin on February 19th!




Below are some basic ground rules of the mock, however as the General Manager GM, you will need to review the complete set of that will be up in the League Office Thread.

League Office Thread
- All transactions must be posted in the LEAGUE OFFICE thread in order to become official.
-Every player in this mock has a corresponding 4 digit code. YOU MUST INCLUDE THIS 4 DIGIT PLAYER CODE WHEN POSTING ANY TRANSACTION.
-We will update all transactions within the official docs.
-You are responsible for updating your own personal Roster Docs
-No discussion within the League Office Thread

The Docs
-As the GM, you will receive a google workbook containing 3 google sheets, these sheets are the backbone of this mock draft.

COPY OF PERSONAL TEAM ROSTER
-This doc has your entire roster on it. This is where you can work on your roster UNOFFICIALLY. You use this doc to keep track of your own transactions and salary cap. It also contains future years’ salary cap information. You are responsible for updating this doc.

TRANSACTION WORKBOOK
-This is your ultimate free agency doc. Here is where you build contracts for ERFA’s, RFA’s, Franchise Tags, Free Agency Bidding, and Reserve Bidding.

WAR ROOM DOC
-This is the docs to end all docs. In this doc you can view your Official Team Roster, Draft Board, a General Manager listing, Depth Chart Doc and several other docs you may find useful in organizing your team.
-If you have any questions about the docs, don’t live in shame! ASK! There are several posters who will help you out.
-If you are planning to use a mobile device you will need to download a Google Doc app.

Discussion Thread
-Discuss and debate, but don’t be a turd. Nobody likes a turd.
-Discussion should stay out of all other threads
-Don’t create additional threads for this mock without permission

Sub-Forum War Room Thread
-Total Control Mock Draft is an Individual Mock
-It is our goal to grow TCM into a forum wide mock. Our first step in this is asking all GM’s to post a War Room Thread in their team’s sub forum. This thread will allow others who are fans of your team to follow the moves you make and check out what we are doing here without the pressure of a role or a job. It also, provides the fans of the team to provide suggestions or potentially help scout players.
-The GM will have autonomy on all decisions, the War Room Thread will just help spark discussion and debate.
-If you decide to have other members of your sub-forum help you, you are free to do so, but the assigned GM is the only one who can post transactions.
-Here is a sample of a War Room Thread http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=584853&start=0


Free Agency
-Free Agency Bidding occurs in rounds.
-All Free Agents are available to receive contract offers, from the first to the last round of fa bidding.
-Each team gets 3 UFA Bids and 1 Resign Bid per round.
-You do not have the option of resigning any of your own players before free agency begins.
-To sign a player you must build a contract in the Transaction Workbook by the deadline date for each Free Agency bidding Round
-3 Factors go into whether or not you win a player:
Average Per Year (APY) Salary - each player is assigned an Average Per Year Salary that you must match or exceed. If the contract you build does not meet the player’s APY demands your contract will not count.
Signing Bonus- Every player is assigned a Signing Bonus number that they desire. The more signing bonus you offer the more likely you are to be awarded the player. You can offer a player less signing bonus than he is asking for, but that will decrease the chances of you being awarded that player.
Contract Length desired- Each player is assigned a number of year(s) he desires. Your contract will not be counted if you build a contract that exceeds that number. You can offer the player less years than he desires but that will decrease the chances of you being awarded that player.
A player’s APY decreases 10% or until he hits vet min every round he goes unsigned.

Reserve Bidding
-As stated above, you cannot resign any players before Free Agency begins.
-However, there are 6 contact slots for submitting reserve bids on last years players within the fa.
-Reserve bids are not active Resign bids, they are passive bids that only trigger if another team bids on your player or you use one of your allotted three UFA bids.
-If another team bids on your player and your Reserve Bid is higher than their UFA bid then you are awarded the player. If the other team’s bid is higher than your Reserve Bid then the other team is awarded the player
You can create a contract as a reserve bid that come in under APY. You can continuously adjust your Reserve Bids until the player is signed.
Reserve Bids do have a benefit in that, when evaluating the winning bids, reserve bids receive a 7% increase in APY.

The Draft Thread
-Each draft slot will be 40 minutes in length.
-There is a Draft Board Doc that will keep track of what players have been drafted. When you pick a player, you must post the player’s code along with it when you post your pick in the Draft Thread
-All draft trades must be posted in the League Office Thread and must contain the overall pick number.
-The first pick of the day, can now make their selection after the last pick of the night draft slot has expired. Meaning that the last pick of the night no longer has the luxury of sitting on their slot overnight.

Awards Thread
-We will be doing End of Mock Awards to validate or discredit all of your real fake hard work
-In order to be considered for Awards you must fit into the follow criteria:
You must have an updated Sub-forum War Room Thread with all of your off season moves and team depth chart
You must have at least a 70 man active roster count at the completion of the UDFA period
You were late on no more than 2 draft selections

If a Jets fan steps up, I'm willing to take a different team. Just let me know before all the teams are gone. Laughing

Should a Chicago Bears fan step forward and want to GM the Bears, I would be willing to take another team.

Ah, what the hell.....I screwed up with them the first time so it's redemption time.

I'll take the Dallas Cowboys again.

(Yes, im a 49ers fan but it's okay, this mock draft is damn good so I don't mind GMing another team)
