You have the option to set up your teams structure how you would like - some teams front load and some back load. With the cap you can only front load or backload a certain amount without getting into trouble. You need to make that balance so that you can compete in the present and be able to not be hurt in the future.

Re-write? There is a bit of complexity to this league and I think we have done a very good job in addressing issue that arise (not everything is going to be able to be fit within the rules). There have been little unforseen things pop up each year, but I think they have been handled within the posted rules(then they are updated as needed). Let me know what is confusing and we can clarify.

Not a fan and would vote against it - but if the 75% majority approve we can have a go. Thinking back many late round rookies are cut. Once there is a selection that player needs to be offered a contract.
Let's get some good discussion goin

We should set a deadline for owners to check in by before we start looking for replacements.

Reasons. I think it helps for those injury/retirement situations not having to pay 1/2 the contract against the cap. Again if we get enough vote to pass - fine by me.

Think this and the following years it is going to get a little more competitve for free agents and you will have to pay attention to your cap more. Many of the original draft players are going to be ending their 4-5 year contracts. In order to re-sign them you have to pay a top amount so more money will be tied up or they will hit free agnecy and those that have managed their cap well will have a chance at those players. I think it will be interesting to see how the league starts to shift now. I guess I didn't really address easy to get out of a contract - not exactly sure that is the case. You take a decent hit in the off-season and within the season the last few weeks it is pretty difficult to drop a larger contract.
