FFMD is a forum-wide GM mock draft designed to give the members of the site a fun way to pass the time during the dry spells of the offseason taking place April 1st and takes us to just a few days of the irl NFL draft.  There were two versions of this mock, however we will only be operating version 2. FFMD II, consists of a full 7 round mock draft with the ability to trade picks and/or players without the stress of a salary cap or the confusion of a free agency.  Current free agents, not signed by another team by Apr. 1st are relocated back to the original team.

To encourage membership at the GM level our plan is to reduce the typical workload previously required of the general manager.  We will be doing the following which in theory will provide you with more time to communicate with your group and not having to worry about keeping track or collecting information.  We hope that these changes will encourage you to join the FFMD experience.

  • The “League Office” will post the initial discussion thread aka team war room within each team sub forum.  This provides everyone regardless of their level of interest looking at it with all the information they’ll need to participate in a structured format.  We’ll ask that each moderator assigned to their team forum pin this war room thread so that it remains at the top of the thread.

    • This war room post will be titled FFMD II ‘20 - [Team Name] Front Office.

      • It will contain links to the primary discussion thread housed in the GM Mock Draft sub forum.

      • Guidelines

      • Important dates (schedule)

      • League workbook (described below) 

  • A single google doc workbook is used to keep track of everything FFMD, which will house the following information.  

    • Draft board / Draft Order

      • Used to list and track available and selected draftees.

        • This has been used in both tcmd, bdl and other GM mocks for several years with great success.

    • Team Roster sheets for all 32 teams designed to display and track every transaction.  Both tcmd and bdl have used something very similar in the past and this will be a much more simplified version of those workbooks.

      • Roster data is collected by us.

      • Important information is displayed and updated automatically.

  • In the past, only the GM and a coGM were the only ones permitted to seek trades from other members.  Now any member of your group is allowed to seek out trade inquiries that can be delivered to your war room for debate and vote on.  

As the GM your responsibilities are a bit more involved than other members within your front office therefore your final vote in which players are selected during the draft and finalizing trades does carry a little more weight, after all you are the General Manager.  So for example, if you have a couple different options for an upcoming pick and the war room is split on which player to take as the GM it’s your responsibility to make the final decision. 

General Managers or an elected member within your front office are required to post each transaction you make within the League Office thread.  We will update the workbook based on the data posted.

General Manager Best Practices

  • Be a leader not a dictator.

  • Listen to the feedback & suggestions from all participating members of your front office.

  • Keep your war room thread informed

    • Create discussions early on items such as “team needs” so that everyone within your group is on the same page.

    • Stay on top of the action by starting the discussion early enough that your front office has the necessary time to discuss various options.

    • Give your front office more control to scout for potential trades.

Long story short, a group of us have worked hard to bring FFMD back. We'd love to see your forum get involved and give it a fair shot. Hit me up if you have questions

Managed to screw up the days with the schedule so ignore the day, but the dates are correct.  April 3rd is when we start drafting, with the 1st being the date the rosters are locked in.

@LinderFournette You wanna put your hat in as GM?

@Tugboat and I will help out, and hopefully a few others get in on this too.

Yeah.  @LinderFournette seems like a good bet as GM.  Seems to be around really reliably with some time to invest in coordinating all this.

I'll definitely throw my hat in the ring for an AGM role or whatever.  I can help out with stuff, and i'll try to be as involved as i can manage.  Hopefully i'm not too busy and schedule aligns to really participate.  I've been looking forward to the return of FFMD for a while now.  Hope we can lift it back to the glory days of these forum games.

One thing that always made the old school FFMD games fun, and easy to participate in "secretly" and argue back and forth and ultimately vote on...was a "code" for talking about various prospects.  We gonna have anything that cool this time around?

 

Like, each prospect in consideration gets themselves a codename based on some random theme, like Pokemon or Wrestlers or whatever feels right?  So we can all openly debate picks, without those scumbags from like Bills Mafia tryna' spy on us to steal our ideas and stuff.

I'd try to set something up myself, but i'm honestly so far behind usual on watching prospects, my board is a mess right now and not helpful.  I'm thinking maybe we could work some small scale code-names for the first couple rounds at least, based on maybe a dozen likely popular choices?
