Congratulations to all who have made the playoffs and thank you to everyone who has been a part of this season. Yet another great year and we have already had some surprises in who has not progressed through the playoffs. We will be having a new person in the Super Bowl whatever happens! I think that shows how well the league is doing in itself!

We have a tight window to get the offseason done before Christmas - so please review and plan accordingly!

Off Season:

Divisional Round - Final game (Redskins - Seahawks) Sunday Morning
NFC Conference Championship - Around 6pm Sunday if Redskins progress, 6pm Sunday or Monday if Seahawks Progress
AFC Conference Championship - Around 7-8pm Monday

Superbowl - Around 9/9:30pm Monday.

SB Scouting - After AFC Championship game (8pm approx) Mon 17th December - Tues 18th December 6:30am
Off-season Stage 1 — Final Re-signs completed this phase — Tues 18th December 6:30am - Tues 18th December 6:30pm

We will not be running a waiver this year. We will instead run a system similar to last year.

  • Players who missed ALL of FA through notified absence will receive one pick
  • Players who missed ALL of the draft will receive one pick
  • Choices will be made in Telegram chat.
  • If you need to sign players for minimum roster limits, please sign the worst OVR at that position temporarily (i.e. P or K)

Preseason Week 3: "UDFA" (Saturday 22nd December ~ 2pm - Saturday 22nd December~ 8pm)
  • ONLY ONE player may be signed by each team (One player across both weeks NOT one player each week).
  • Players reserved by players above must be left.
  • If you need to sign players for minimum roster limits, please sign the worst OVR at that position temporarily (i.e. P or K)

Preseason Week 4: "Free for All" (Saturday 22nd December ~ 8pm Onwards)

Please note that the waiver wire for released players will reset after the draft

3 choices? None of which accommodate people with weekend plans or work. Saturday/Sunday afternoon should be a choice as well as Sunday evening.
With Ian. It’s weekend before Christmas. We are trying to get the season done so it doesn’t go over Christmas and yet this. Surely and Thursday and Sunday option to test waters can’t hurt?
