For those who were concerned about the deadline between amnesty cuts and the deadline for bidding on them, the deadline for amnesty bids has been moved to the 28th which is also the day of the draft lottery.
This way, players cannot be amnestied at the last minute without a chance for others to bid on them.
The deadline for amnesty cuts will be 12 P.M. EST on the 27th.
The results of the draft lottery and the deadline for amnesty bids will be June 28th. We'll stick with the 3:30 P.M. EST time from the previous announcement. The winning bidders will also be posted on the 28th.
Just a reminder: free agency begins in less than 24 hours. By that I mean you can start posting the threads in the free agency sub forums and making offers to free agents at 12:00 A.M. EST tomorrow.
I will be doing clubhouse checks again today (July 2nd). If they are not updated or if you make a free agent offer with an out of date payroll in your clubhouse, you will be notified. Until it is updated, any free agent offers you make will not be counted.
I can't speak for Corey and ebbs, but I will be updating RimCat free agents as often as every other day. Feel free to annoy the hell out of me for updates when it all begins, but I'll most likely stick to that routine.
Pending objection from the majority, Free Agency will end Monday at 12 P.M. ET. If this is not enough advanced notice for most of you (and it will take most of you) this date has some flexibility to it.
Monday at midnight will be the deadline for the start of threads and pitches to be made. That does not mean all decisions will be made by then. But after Monday at midnight, signed free agents who did not agree to a NTC in their contracts become expendable.
Feel free to come to any of us or post in the lounge if you have any questions about this.
The tentative deadline for the submission of all trades will be Monday at 12 A.M. ET. For those of you who are like me and suck at telling time, that basically means Sunday night.
If the majority object, this date can be moved back as much as 24 hours. But you'll have to start a riot in the lounge for that to happen.
You will have 24 hours after the trade deadline to make sure your panties are ironed and your clubhouses are in order. After that, we'll start playoff voting.
In light of some unfortunate circumstances which unfolded during the voting process of the Knicks 90s ReDraft and a game or two in the past, playoff seeding will be a tad different in this game.
#1) You will be sending your playoff seeds to ALL THREE OF US via PM. Each of us will calculate, confer, and confirm that the final rankings are accurate.
#2) At Corey's suggestion, your rankings will be posted in a separate thread with your name attached. This way, you are held accountable for your votes but the option to copy and paste the previous ranking in a public thread is also eliminated.
#3) One 1-15 ranking will be submitted for each team. So if you have one or two Co-GMs, only one of you will be submitting your ranking.
#4) If your team does not submit a 1-15 ranking, your team will be disqualified. Consider our flexibility on this consistent with that of a glass sex toy.
The deadline to finalize your clubhouses will be tonight at midnight (August 1st, 12 A.M. ET). If your team is over/under the roster requirement, prepare for some scrubs.
Playoff rankings will be due Friday at 6:00 P.M. ET. We'll sort out the rankings and have them posted either that evening or the following day. Remember your names will be attached to these you it wouldn't be clever to BS them.
After conferring with ebbs and Corey, we have decided to disqualify the Heat from playoff eligibility. They were the only team, to the best of my knowledge, to finish the game without the minimum requirement of 12 players on their roster. At least I think so because their clubhouse is not updated, which is also grounds for disqualification.
So for those of you who have already submitted your Eastern Conference Rankings, we will simply disregard the Heat and bump every team below them up one slot. For those of you who have yet to submit these rankings, please do not include Miami in your ballot.
