ya bigb, in my mind you already made the best possible move by making this thread in the exclusive section to ensure that this league is active. Cuz the exclusive members on here are sure to get there games in.

I'm also not in favor of a fantasy draft but I'll do it anyway.

Just my suggestion for free agents: At the beginning of each offseason each team has to release a total of 16 players. Out of those 16, 8 must be rated at least a 70 or higher, 4 must be rated at least an 80 or higher, and two of them must be among the team's 10 highest rated players and one of those two must be under the age of 30. (excluding kickers and punters) then pick up free agents in a manner similar to baseball's rule V draft. IDK, just throwing stuff out there that would keep the league rolling. I know it sounds complicated but I think it would be the most realistic way to do things.

Here is the thing about your free agency scenario Mcnair. My boys the Saints only have 24 people rated 70+. So in your scenario I'm basically losing all my starters but 8. You might as well redraft every year because that is essentially what you are doing. Your team wont have any continuity at all.


In the NFL teams build through the draft picking up maybe 2-3 key free agents every year. They hardly ever make trades maybe once or twice a year. Honestly I think thats kind of the way the league should go. Having 15 new starters every year or overhauling over 50% of your roster isnt franchise that basically makes it several individual seasons played back to back. The EA guys have a franchise going were they have each team cut 5 70+ OVR players into free agency each year and say its working out pretty well for them. But its up to you guys what direction you want to go. Do you want to keep the league fairly sim or do you want more of a free for all?

The problem right now is that there isnt any type of salary cap. But since the league is server based Ian says there is a chance that it could be added as a patch.

I said that only 8 had to be rated 70+ so you are then only losing 1/3 of your team rated over a 70, not unrealistic at all. Also there needs to be some way to get decent free agents out there, not superstarts necessarily but decent players. If it's done that way I guarentee people will cut all players rated 70-77ish and no decent free agents will ever be abailable. Also since we are doing a fantasy draft then if somebody has a good team it is because they drafted smart and should therefor be rewarded for it.

we have 2 months to debate this my thing is everyone should cut 4 70+ rated and 4 80+ rated players...i think superstars gettin on new teams will be taken care of by trades and the free agent market really doesnt produce superstars unless they contract is up so free agency is to fill your roster and the draft is to reload. but like i said we have awhile to debate this

How many games a week are you guys planning on?

I've seen a couple cool ideas for free agency other leagues are using. I'll post them when I get a chance.

When madden first drops i cant get enough of it, its what i do with pretty much all my free time in august. I could probably do 6 or so games a week, but i think that 3-4 minimum would be better for everyone.

I would love to do 4 games a week. But 3 is a hell of alot easier. Since there is no flex scheduling in franchise you cant go to the next week until all games are played. So you have to give each week a time table to be played. I would suggest having a sub forum with each week(1-16) having its own space so people can schedule their games against each other..


3games/week
-------------
Sun,Mon-Week1
Tues,Wed,Thurs-Week2
Fri,Sat-Week 3
etc...

4games/week
---------------
Sun,Mon-Week1
Tues,Wed-Week2
Thurs,Fri-Week3
Sat-Week4
etc...

If we can get 32 reliable ballers 4 would be tight. But it will probably be alot easier to start off with 3 then add a 4th once were up and running...Usually the last 2-4 games of the season and the playoffs you can knock out in a week.

yeah i would go eazy and say 2 but at the same time we will have reliable players in it right now and i think we can easily do 3 games week regardless of days but u got from sunday to the next sunday to do 3 games i think thatll work.

and as far as the free agency thing goes we need as many ideas as possible so we can comprise on a system.

The thing is Buddah that you cant go from week 1 to week 2 until all the games from week 1 are finished. There is NO FLEX SCHEDULING. So you have to have have a timetable in which everyone has to get their games in. If we have a sub forum for each week of the season and make everyone go there to schedule their games the league will run smoothly.


Personally I like 3 games a week. It keeps the league moving at a good pace. The fun part about franchise is doing multiple seasons. The more season we get through the better. And if we make sure everyone that joins has a couple hours they can play between like 5pm-midnite it shouldnt be a problem. But I'm definitely cool with 2 if thats the way you want to go. We could always start off with 2 see how it goes and then move up to 3 later.

SALARY CAP AND FREE AGENCY


Players are given a "point value" based on there ratings.
95+ = 10 points
90-94= 9
84-89= 8
78-83= 7
70-77= 6
59-69= 4
45-59= 2
0-44= 1

Simple enough. Then you add up your teams total "cap value". The Lions are currently at 287 points total. (See the excel spreadsheet with all the teams, cap totals, and player ratings)

http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?k...6_b0hHLj93Am3Q

Then there is a "League Cap" which acts like a salary cap. I believe the cap will be set at 315. So no team can go over this number. The Pats start with 329 points, and the Giants with 323 so they have some cutting to do to get below the League cap to start. The League cap is increased by 1.5% every season.

The remaining points can be used to bid on Free Agents. The Lions cap is 287 and the League cap is 315, so they currently have 28 points to bid for Free agents with. If your team cap is 310 then you would only have 5 points to bid with and might need to release some players to bid on free agents.

Free agents have +2 cap value to start with.

95+ = 12 points
90-94= 11
84-89= 10
78-83= 9
70-77= 8
59-69= 6
45-59= 4
0-44= 2


So say Chris Mcalister is rated 86 (he's an 10 point player according to the ratings scale). But FA starts and 4 teams drive up the bidding and someone wins him for 18 points. Then 18, not 10, is the Mcalister's cap value and remains that number until he retires or is released.

No team can go over the League cap at any time.

This can all be easily done using the excel spreadsheet using the excel formulas makes keeping track of our cap very simple, and simple is good. The formulas on the spreadsheet are ALREADY to go.



This is probably the best one I have seen so far. We can tweek it however you guys like. For instance I think a 95+ rate player should start out with 12 points instead of 10 and the 90-95 10 instead of 9. But it seems like every franchise league is doing something very similar to this. Most of them I think have the cap increase way to high and it wont generate free agents like you want it to. This guys thinking is right in line in with what I was thinking so this was the one I preferred.

o ok i thought that they had 3 weeks open at a time...well this changes things then...we probably will have to have a sub forum since everyone wont get on aim or any other type of instant messenger...i think we must make and enforce that AIM is manditory...and we will implement 1 of those scenarios u posted earlier

No problem bro. The best way to get a grasp as to what is going on is to just fire up 09 go to franchise mode and do 2-3 seasons or more if needed and just sim all the games. That will give you a good feel of what we will be doing. Basically its the same thing except for instead of playing against the computer your playing against 31 other hoes.


Online franchise is going to take over Madden. It's just too much fun not to have a big impact on how everyone plays. First off if your in with a good group of fellas you dont have to worry about playing a$$holes. Then the replay factor is through the roof. With teams constantly changing every year it gives you a new fresh experience each season. Even if you finish 3-13 you are still geeked just because you know your gonna have a high draft pick and be able to pick up that guy that can turn your franchise around.


Just sign up Bro!

The points system is basically taking the place of the players salary. As of right now players salaries are not going to be listed during the online franchise mode. So most leagues I have seen are implementing a point system based on a players overall rating. Then there will be a cap number that a team cant go over. Just like the NFL has a salary cap leagues will have a cap based on total points.


Example:Cowboys
---------------
D.Ware=12pts
M.Barber=9pts
J.Witten=10pts
etc....
=============
Team Total=219pts

League Cap=200 pts

So the Cowboys are 19 pts over the cap #. So they would have to cut players that equal at least 19 pts. Those players then go into free agency to get bid on. And people can bid as high as they want as long as their team stays below the league cap #...


If you guys have any specific questions about things you dont understand post them and I'll answer them the best that I can.
