    NM has stated (and Mali backed him up) that Reno sucks.

    I suggested he move to Windsor, ON and call the team the Castles.

    I really am unsettled on where to relocate the franchise. My draft ideas aren't grabbing me yet.

    Why not go international???? Monte Carlo sounds like a lot better place to play than Reno.

    Can somebody point me to the page that shows how much $ I can spend on free agents? I assume the in-game amounts are incorrect, right?

    Your best bet is to go by this page (which I should post in its own thread):

    http://www.thefobl.com/finances/eoyfinances.php

    SEM is shown with an approximate Owner's Cap of 60.3M...which is above the league cap of 60M. Owners are given individual caps based on prior performance and cash on hand; it's basically an approximation of what payroll will expend all of a team's cash if they perform to the same levels as last season. Teams *must* be below their owner caps at the beginning of the season and at the All-Star break. The number shown will change some, depending on if average salary goes up (then the OC's goes up) or if it goes down (and the OC's go down). But this is a decent guide. Any team that is over the league cap is subject to fines (think luxury tax).

    Dola - also, every $1 in cash that you add will add $2 to your OC (unless you are over $60M, then that's not quite exact).

    To the new owners:

    We do so much custom shit in this league that your first guess as to how things operate will probably be incorrect. Please ask as many questions as you need to get up to speed. The financial system is a game within itself and still confuses some original owners. We're all available to help you.

    For the record, and without animosity toward you new owners, I am sad to see these storied franchises relocating.

    It's about the league's past, not about you new fellas. Welcome!
