Thanks. I'll wait to hear from those.
As a note, though, I should note that there are some serious issues with how this is being implemented. When I first joined this league, I was warned that the rule book was out of date, and should not be totally relied upon. Now, there is an acknowledgement that new GMs should have been told about a rule, but weren't. Indeed, under "Free Agents and Contracts" in the rule book, this one appears nowhere. In fact, it says:
"Teams can re-sign a potential free agent anytime during the season."
Even if I had relied on the unreliable information, I had zero inkling that my planning had to take this never-before-broadcasted rule into consideration.
Assuming is flat out not good enough in a context where the rule book isn't an up-to-date piece of information. because now it has created an unfair playing field where my re-signing and financial strategy would have absolutely been different. I expected better.
