With PS4 release just around the corner it's time to start getting a list of people who are planning on getting 2k14 & PS4. We will once again be running a league that is based around sim style ideas. We will have a better understanding of what rules need to be in place for the league. As of right now we don't have a target start date but want to get an idea of how many people are planning on getting 2k14 & PS4. Please leave a comment if you are interested and when you are planning on having both the game and the system. We want to start ASAP and are not afraid of starting without a full 30 owners.

In the past we have very structured rules and settings for our Online 2k Lgs, mainly because of the deficiencies in the game. However, this year many believe 2k has delivered on both ends of the floor and it is my hope that some of our past issues have been rectified. With that said, some rules from past season have been removed. If after playing some games feel free to contact me via dm or psn about your concerns, and everything will be taken into considerations. As of now here are our game settings, and rules.
10 min Qtrs
1. Max 25 shots for one player in regulation (5 for each additional overtime)
2. Run plays (Not necessary on every posession, but it is encouraged and will also make scoring a lot easier)
3. You may push the break with either PG, SG, OR SF however no cherry picking and may not pass ahead until you cross halfcourt with the ball.
1. ON Ball Defense must be played at all times
2. Zone is allowed in spots, but not for an entire games
3. You may press with just the point guard, but no full court pressure as a team unless trailing by double digits in the 4th qtr
4. No quitting. We all play to have fun, and sometimes getting blown out isn't, we all have been there. However, it is disrespectful to your opponenet and unacceptable to ever quit under any circumstances. Doing so will result in punishment.
Please sign on the bottom as your acknowledgement of understand and agreeing to abide by these rules. Lets give these rules a try and hopefully we wont need to implement rules from past years. Anyone who breaks these rules will be subject to punishment from player suspensions, up to removal from the league. Good luck and have fun everyone. How you play in this league will effect your consideration in the PS4 league. Any questions or comments, contact me via PSN (Mamba_Knows) or twitter (@USDAMamba_knows) Also, Im interested in finding some administrators to help in the every day running of the league, resets, punishment decisions, rule changes etc. if interested let me know.

WELCOME BACK USDA
I hope you all enjoyed your time off from USDA gaming activities, but now is time we gear up for the newest edition of USDA Madden. On this page you will sign up to show that you are interested in being a committed member of USDA Madden. Signing up DOES NOT guarantee you a spot as an opening owner in Madden 25. If we have over 32 users sign-up, then your comissioners will discuss who makes the first cut, and who will be used as a reserve.
A few quick hits about our upcoming Madden season.

** After you read this tweet back to an admin that you've read it. Even if you don't tweet back we will assume that you have. If you attempt to circumvent the restrictions we've set in place you risk being removed from the league if you refuse to cooperate. Thank You**
We have some important news to update you on regarding today's 2PM EST Draft/Free Agency. The $0 contract glitch is stil around for Season 4. The weird thing is some contracts that were glitched last season got fixed, there are some new ones but not a lot and we will use the same method we used last year to maintain it.
First off if you don't want to keep any of the $0 contract players feel free to cut them and allow them to be signed to a contract to any team willing to bid on them. However, if you decide to keep them accept the restrictions we have put in place. If you can't do that, we will find a owner who will. We all will do our part to level the playing field in our community, if you don't want to be a productive member of that community again, we'll find someone who will.
Now below is the list that we used to see who was affected the most by this glitch. If you find any errors or don't agree with your restrictions make sure to notify us via @USDA_2K Before the Draft/FA begins and we will discuss it BRIEFLY.
Check for your team name, and It will show the number of players you are allowed to sign within a certain ratings range. If you want to see how we determined these figures scroll down below.
76ers- No Restrictions
Bobcats - 1 80+ OVR
Bucks - 69 or below
Bulls 2 80+ OVR
Cavs - No Restrictions
Celtics - No Restrictions
Clippers - 3 80+ OVR
Grizzlies- 1 70-79 OVR
Hawks - 3 80+ OVR
Heat 69 or below
Hornets - 1 80+OVR
Jazz - 3 80+ OVR
Kings - 1 80+OVR
Knicks - 69 or Below
Lakers - 1 80+OVR
Magic - 1 70-79 OVR
Mavs - 69 or Below
Nets - No Restrictions
Nuggets - No Restrictions
Pacers - 2 80+ OVR
Pistons - 3 80+ OVR
Raptors - No Restrictions
Rockets - No Restrictions
Spurs - 69 or below
Suns - 1 70-79 OVR
Thunder - No Restrictions
Timberwolves - 3 80+ OVR
Trailblazers - No Restrictions
Warriors - 69 or Below
Wizards - 69 or Below
***We determined anyone over 20M was able to sign 3 80+
**We detemined that anyone with 15M - 20M in cap room was able to sign 2 80+
**We detemined that anyone with 8M - 15M in cap room was able to sign 1 80+
***We determined anyone with 8M-0M was able to sign 1 70-79 OVR
***We determined anyone who was over cap is only limited to someone 69 OVR or less
*** Any Team that has no $0 contracts can bid on any player
The only time you can step outside the range is if the player was on your team the previous season. again it's not a guarantee you get him but you may bid.
Now it's not a definite that you sign even 1 player in that ratings range because players of that talent level usually get a lot of attention. But to maintain balance these restrictions will be in place to keep teams already loaded from bidding more.
If you mistakenly sign more than the allowed amount in a 2k day, 2k gives us to accept/decline the contract before the next day hits. Please select decline of one of the players that puts you over the max. Also since people will have a lot more money now try and be conistent in your offers. a 67 OVR player should not be making 10M/year. Lets try and keep it in the ball park of :
90 + - MAX
80+ - 6M-10M
70+ 3M to 6M
Less than 69 3M to vet min
I also went through and calculated every teams salary for what it should be if the contract glitch would not have happened. I used http://www.spotrac.com/nba/ to calculate contracts for 2015 and used a criteria, that will be posted below within the hour along with the adjusted cap spreadsheet and players with the $0 contracts. We also adjusted some values accordingly, to account for competitive bidding in RFA & UFA seasons.
We're not going to use the exact figures because some teams did have MLE and somes didn't. Trying to use these exact numbers dollar for dollar would cause more issues so instead we use it as a guide to see who could have actually made an offer at some of the elite talent.
Again Respond back to @USDA_2K after you've noted your teams restrictions or lack thereof, or if you have any objections to your restriction. Again we will assume you read it and agreed to these stipulations even if you do not.
The Players contract totals were totaled using a few points of criteria. As stated above we used the data from Sportrac as a base.

It's our favorite time of year UOA Playoffs!!!
Playoffs will begin on Wednesday as early as Noon EST or around 6pm EST, Game 1 can sim as early as Thursday at 4 pm EST or 10pm EST Thursday Night. ...either way get those games in now!!!
This season looks to be wide open as every team has a legitimate shot at capturing USDA gold.
The East as always is stacked with talented owners who seem to be in a tight race from 1-8 with no clear favorite. The past two champions have been from the eastern conference, and this highly competitive division looks to produce another champion as competition is ramped up to an all time high.
The West is full of talented GM's who have turned teams around or further stacked them with talent. The West brings out some serious contenders this go around as the Thunder, Suns, Kings, and Nuggets all look to have a fair shot.
Will the #1 ranked Celtics grasp their first ever USDA title? Will the Heat repeat to capture a third USDA 2K championship? Or will a new team emerge and step up to claim their piece of USDA history like the Suns or Nuggets or maybe even the Thunder?
All questions will be answered soon as USDA 2K playoffs are only a few days away!!
Below I will post the playoff bracket matchups as soon as they are known to us. Remember the first round is 3 games so you want to find out who your opponent is and schedule those initial matchups as soon as possible.
