It's that time again. Time for the Finheaven General Manager League 2.0. For those of you who aren't familiar with the League...we basically have 32 owners and put them in the position of a GM for a few months. You can trade players, cut players, tender your RFAs, use your Franchise/Transition Tags, and you keep up with your salary cap. At some point we will have a free agency period in which everyone bids on the available free agents. Then in April we will have our draft. We try to complete that before the actual NFL draft.

We have nearly half of the league filled, mostly with people who played last year. There are still alot of openings if anyone is interested. The 2004 Board is now available for viewing, you can also look at the 2003 Board to see how things work. Anyone who is interested can post here.

Cool. One thing i must stress is the big problem we had last year....about half of the league either quit at some point, or people just didn't do much....became very inactive. If you spend a good deal of time online and don't mind talking trades and stuff like that. There shouldn't be a problem. If you are still interested....what team would you be interested in? If you look at the board you can see who has been taken.

Ohhhh, THAT's why it says, FINHEAVEN General manager league.....:lol:

One thing that I didn't like last year and the main reason that I quit was the fact that ridiculous trades were made right and left......The realism was not what I was expecting....Although I understand that it may be a little boring to do it "real life", I am wondering if any thought went into that aspect of the league??

It's never been a problem. The league on the saints board has been going on for over 5 years. They had a waiting list to get in the league last year.

I'll take Mike Vick and the falcons- I've got big plans for this team, after this draft we'll have them in the playoffs and a team that will compete for the super bowl in the years to come.

Well any of us that are Fins fans are Winners and the Bills and Jets fans are losers. :lol: :jk:

Last year we didn't wind up doing anything about picking a winner but hopefully this year they can set it up so we can vote at the end.

If you're happy with it and you THINK it's not a problem, more power to you but, it WAS a problem for me, and as I recall, one or two others, who dropped out.

We were actually talking about going back and voting on last years teams now. Since we now know how the players did.

That might be hard because I don't think some of thepages were updated at the end. I know I had made a trade to the PESKY PESKY Vikings for Peyton Manning.

My roommate(raylu11) has the jags in this league and said he would put all the teams in madden and simulate a season to determine the winner. We have NCAA too so after our draft we can upload the ncaa rosters and assign those players to the teams too. just an idea to make it a little more interesting.

Saint Greg
02-05-2004, 04:38 PM
For those of you who have signed up for a team but have no clue what to do next. This thread should walk you through the next step.

That's something we thought about last year and could do this year. However if it's done, it would probably be better to be done on madden 2005 during the season with player updates. Becuase a player like boldin at the beginning of the season, won't be nearly as good as he would be at the end of the season. But we can discuss all these possibilties at some point.

Why doesnt somebody make this a Madden NFL Sim League and keep it going and we simulate the games with Madden and turn it into a franchise league.

Looks like Pink_Dove beat you to it by a matter of seconds. Is there another team you'd like?

If we could get a group of people to stick with it, and they all wanted to do that, something like that would be possible.

Sorry man....the steelers, jets and 49ers are the only teams left.

Saint Greg
02-06-2004, 06:23 PM
Ok....everyone that wanted a team...check the team owner thread on the 2004 GM League Board and make sure i have you down. The only teams left are the Jets and 49ers. Once those two teams are filled we will have everyone confirm that they are still playing....we may have a couple teams open up at that point...hopefully not though.

I will like the jets, so i can be the most hated team on this site!!;)

If its not a royal pain, I'd like to switch to the 49ers, I didnt realize they were still open. If it's a big hassle, then I'll keep the Browns.

Hey guys... looks like we filled all the teams with people who claim they want to be GMS, but only 18 Teams have put up their info. (rosters/salaries/free agents, etc...)

Double check to see if you are on the list
http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/showthread.php?s=&threadid=31753
check the instructions on the main page of the league and let's get all our teams up and have some fun.

edit: if you changed your mind and are no longer interested be sure to tell one of the people running the league or post here and we'll look for a replacement asap.

good luck

I've been lookin around, but I can't seem to find the salaries for the Bungles. I find their 2000 salaries, but that won't help much. Anyone have any ideas as to where to find it besides Madden '04?

...under the thread, you signed up...what now...
If you've signed up for a team. The next step is to create a team page for your team. Click on the "General Manager's Team" forum up at the top of this forum a few teams have already started there team pages. You're team page will consist of your players and player salaries, your teams free agents, draft picks, salary cap information, signings, cuts, and trades. The first thing you need to do is get your player salaries. I will walk you through this step.

1. Go to nflpa.org
2. Click on the "active players" link at the top of the page
3. Click on "active player search" on the lefthand side of the page
(Note: in previous years you could search and bring up an entire team at once. This year it is going to be a little more difficult on us. NFLPA has altered their search engine so you can only bring up 5 players at a time. So you will have to perform multiple searches to get all of your players)
4. Switch the Team to your team, the year to 2004 (very important, you don't want to end up with 2003 salaries)
5. Perform a search on every position and paste the salaries into a word document. If you get less than 5 results on a positon, you have all of your players. If you get 5, there may be more. I'd try searching different ways to see if you can get more players. Search by both compensation and name. That should get most of the players for you.
6. Once you have compiled a list of players and salaries you may want to check it against the teams roster and free agents to make sure you have all of your players. Any players you suspect are missing. Do an individual search for that player on NFLPA. Just type in their last name, and select their team. Typing in a full name will not work.

If you have any questions, you can PM me. Or email me at benjamin4820@aol.com

If you have AIM i my screen name is benjamin4820. StanMarino13 and MazzyStarRules are the AIM screen names of the other guys that are going to be helping me run this league. They can help you as well.
