Today is the last day i'd say.

Remember theres 29 other GMs homeskillet so waiting on 1 is just goofy. Get your butt on there for 5 mins adn get that **** done if you care so much or be raged! Let's keep'r rolling. Had an extra day for day 3 as well so we're on day 4 of resign period thats gotta suffice.

Are there teams with zero QO out to RFAs? That's a red flag that they haven't been on. In that case, we can always make their players "off-limits" to other teams for some period in July.

Somebody would sign them i'm sure before seeing it here and it'd all get messed. Best to replace if we need to before we advance.

Yeah, well they would have to trade them back. There are ways of fixing it.

We aren't in a position to replace that many inactives, I don't think. I'm not sure we have a waiting list.

sorry dudes, got life and xmas stuff to deal with....i can be on later tonight like 10-11pm est to try to get all my cats resigned or see who accepted deals and didnt and give me a chance to resign them..
Like I said, I've sent out contracts to a bunch of peeps on one day, went on the next night and it still wasn't advanced cuz the commish was dealing with family stuff, just saying its not that fair for people that have alot going on & work and all that jazz, i'm sure alot of people may bail on the league too if they lose alot of key guys & that would suck cuz these leagues pretty alright in my books.

I dont really believe players should be "off limits" in a case like this. People have had enough time now to get started on signing free agents, we all have life issues to deal with, if someone hasnt taken the time to at least log on here or xbox to see what the league is up to they shouldnt be rewarded for being irresponsible to the league IMO.

If someone's checking in here at least and letting you all know what the deal is and why they cant get it done, then maybe extra time should be allowed for them, but not someone who just isnt doing anything or checking in at least, thats not fair to the rest of us here at all

Here's the thing--in theory and principle, I completely agree.

In practice, if 10 teams are rendered unplayable by not resigning any of their key players (and, likely, by missing the boat on the first UFA window), I think it threatens the viability of the league. That's why we'd have to do it, not because the individual GMs necessarily deserve it, but because leaving multiple teams completely incapable of competing makes it harder for the league to function.

(Thus the reason we've gone through about 4 Anaheim GMs).

If you kick players before the June 28th sim then you guys should be fine as far as the CPU signing their RFA's , however if you wait until before the final sim (june 29th-June 30th) they won't resign anybody. Just found this out the hard way in my league!

I leave on the 20th for a week. By waiting for guys who haven't even checked the league, it completely screws me over and I've been on every night. It's not really fair to cater to people who don't care about the league.

I understand what you mean but if we go the route of "off limits" free agents for teams that haven't checked in, then it completely undermines what the rest of us have done.

Is anyone completely done with their resign phase?

They could jump on for some of the teams and at least qualify the players and send out one round of offers.
