Salaries and Contracts
Salary Cap of $240
Max contract length is 4 years. An option for an extra year requires a final year salary increase of 20%. An option on the extra year must be declared by February 24th each year. All other years are calculated at the salary as per the players salaries file. Once a contract has expired, that player becomes a Free Agent and enters the following year’s draft.
Contract buyout – cost will be 50% of the remaining contract value, i.e. current year in progress plus those remaining. That cost to be born over the same time period that the contract originally was valid for and thus included in all Cap calculations.
Draft order is determined by last year’s final regular season standings i.e. last place drafts first etc.
Draft style will be a traditional draft. (ie 1-14 and then back to 1 again.)
New Owner Provisions
New owners will be permitted to restructure the contracts of the players who comprise their roster.
Any player cut will not be subject to the 50% salary fine.
All existing non-option year players can be restructured for a maximum of two seasons. This means any combination of this season plus 1 additional year. They will retain the right for a third “option” year as well. Players will retain the salary that they are currently signed at.
All of the prior season’s option year players (listed in green on the roster sheet) are no longer that team’s property and are now Free Agents.
