    Rule Change #12

    Here is the proposed rule change from the summary thread:

    Missing Contract Year Deadline Penalty
    a. 1-3 days (basically Sat, Sun, Mon): Cap Penalty (TBA)
    b. After 3 Days, all players get 1 year contract

    This thread is a place for all owners to discuss the new rule as well as vote. Once we have received a majority vote in either direction I will update the rules.

    Yep....no reason you cant assign years within 24 hours (unless maybe you're up against the cap and are trying to trade a player or something). But, 3 days before just giving the guy 1 year is more than generous.

    Once again this is a difficult one to make a poll question for. Basically the current rule states:

    Players acquired through FCFS waivers are signed to a league minimum contract. The owner of any player newly acquired whether by blind bidding or by FCFS must alert the rest of the league of the acquisition and the length of the contract in the KFFL league forum. Any cuts made to accommodate an acquired player are subject to cap penalties if applicable. When picking up a free agent, if his contract years are not posted at the KFFL forum within 24 hrs, that player is automatically signed to a one year contract.
    When picking up a free agent during the regular season, if his contract value and years are not posted at the KFFL forum within 24 hrs, that player is automatically signed to a one year contract. Players acquired via trade come with a predetermined contract that cannot be altered by the new owner during the regular season. Players acquired during the off-season do not have to be signed to a contract until a date assigned by the commissioner approximately one week before the first game of the NFL season. During the off-season the number of players on a teamís roster may not exceed 23 (18 on the active roster, 3 for the practice squad, and 2 on the developmental squad) even if all of the players are not signed to contracts. A team is also unable to have more unsigned players on their roster than they are able sign to legal contracts. This is to prevent teams from drafting or picking up players as free agents merely to remove them from the talent pool.
    The new rule would be more lenient and assign cap penalties daily for days 1, 2 & 3 and once the 3 day limit is reached the player is assigned a 1 year contract. If we decide to do this we need to determine what the cap penalty should be. I believe the cap hit should be consistent with the Illegal Rosters rule of $1,000 per day.

    The Republicans are now controlling the House. Where are the jobs Mr. Boehner? Thanks Keith! And while we're at it, how come the economy isn't fixed yet? LMAO
