Default '18 GML Rules, Info, & Timeline

THE BASICS:
Essentially you are taking over a team and running them through the NFL offseason from a certain point in time forward. If you've followed your favourite team during the offseason, you know the process. From that time point, nothing that happens in the NFL matters in terms of players cut or signed. You are taking over a roster and from then on everything occurs in the GML bubble. As for how our starting information is determined?

PLAYER SALARIES:
Salaries for individual players will be taken from OverTheCap.com. Updated information on contracts will be allowed if a reputable source according to Mach or Witlon is provided. Restructures will not be honoured based on the later start date.

SALARY CAP:
The salary cap for the GM League will be $178,000,000. You will need to be under this number before the start of free agency and stay under for the remainder of the year. This is taken from the actual cap number used for the NFL. This may be updated to an extent before our league year begins.

ROSTER SIZES:
There is no initial limit, but there will be multiple cutdowns where rosters must be between 46 and 53. YOU MUST HAVE EXACTLY 53 PLAYERS AT THE END.

STARTING OFF:
Teams will be drafted and from there you'll post your team page. Instructions on how to do so will be pasted in the stuck thread How to Post Your Team Page in the Team Pages forum. YOU MUST DO THIS BEFORE YOU MAKE ANY ROSTER MOVES.

From there you'll begin trading and cutting players. Some basics on that:

CUTTING A PLAYER:
There is a penalty for cutting a player (whether he was originally on your team or via trade), listed as “Dead Money if Cut” in the rosters handed out. If a player has a cut dead money value of $8,675,309 and you release him, the entire $8,675,309 is added to your cap.

JUNE 1ST CUTS:
There will also be 2 allotted June 1st cuts. These will function similarly to the actual designation except that the cut player's cap number will come off your team's cap number immediately. These must occur prior to the start of Tier 3 UFA. A team will be able to release up to 2 players for their listed June 1 dead money charge. You cannot use this exception on a player signed in FA or traded for, nor can you re-sign a June 1st cut player.

TRADING A PLAYER:
Once a player is traded his Cap Hit if Traded number is transferred to the acquiring team. The original team retains the Dead Money if Traded portion. A player who is traded can then be traded again with no cap hit, however the acquiring team must be responsible for the Dead Money if Cut After Traded portion.

FREE AGENCY:
At some point after all that, Free Agency will begin. For specifics on that, please see the Free Agency Rules thread stuck in the Free Agency forum.

DRAFT
After Free Agency will be the Draft (full 7 rounds) and Undrafted Free agency. For how that works read the stuck Draft Rules thread.

Finally we get to the "payoff"

FINAL ROSTERS:
Teams are required to submit their final rosters with a depth chart. Write-ups are optional. Further information will be provided once rosters are completely frozen. As noted, you must be at 53 players when submitting these.

VOTING:
Each team has one vote (co-GMs cannot each vote) to keep things balanced. More information will be posted about the voting system in early May.

The point of the game depends on the person. I like to play it for roster construction. Some like to play it to try to win the respect and admiration of their peers. It may be a cliche, but the goal of the game is to have fun, and kill the offseason.

If you have any questions, please ask in this thread.

Prelim schedule, and I have to make a rule tweak with the June 1st cuts. They're only going to be useful for a compliance standpoint (meaning they will have to be made early in the process) since you guys get a ton of space to work with anyway.

Also, anything in green is subject to change, in addition to the schedule.

Rosters will have to be at 46 to 53 before FA starts. You can't go above 53 players during FA, nor below 46.

Exception for teams that don't have that many, but, I'm going to be including futures with your rosters this year so you likely will have that many.

"The tag immediately counts on the salary cap once the tender is made, not when the contract is signed."

When you tag someone, it hits right away.
