My weekend availability is never set so if something happens on the weekend I'll try to be around. Weekdays: usually after 6:30 pm EST. 

I say just move it along as quick as possible so we can get back into the games.

This might throw a wrench in some plans, but I'm not around this weekend at all. From Friday morning until Sunday night. If I just miss the draft and FA, that sucks but I will live. But if the SuperBowl isn't available until Friday and I'm playing, I wont be able to play until very late Sunday night.

In about 4 hours or so, maybe later, I will be closing re-signing of players. I will then open the first wave of Free Agency. In that way, anyone who cannot make it right at 1 pm EST can at least place a bid on a Free Agent in hopes of signing them.

**Update:
Changed my mind on advance. Will do so late in the morning to allow more time for potential position changes/reversals.

Free Agency Round 1 is OPEN.
I will still give people time at 1 pm EST to show up and make their bids, but if you can't make it at 1, at least you get a shot to make a bid.

You will be able to contact me directly via the Forum chatbox (Works on PC, Mobile, and PS4 browsers) or via the PS4 messaging. I plan to open a FA/Draft Party chat for up to 8 users for people to come and go as they please to BS and offer smoother trade talks and whatnot.
Direct chatbox link: AALoA Chat

I will not be constantly refreshing the site for questions.

Guys may wanna double check their Coaching Scheme settings to make sure they are what they should be. My DEF was changed to 'Attacking 4-3' somehow.

OK. We're on the pre-season 24 hour advance schedule.

FREE AGENCY
Free agency will be open for everyone at 7 pm EST on Sunday, 11/9/14.
IF you cannot play your preseason game because of roster requirements, you can sign the worst player available at the position of need.

For example, I need another offensive linemen, probably 3. I will sign the worst linemen I need to make it through the day.

Free Agency doesn't open for another hour and a half, yet players that are not the worst possible have been signed to rosters. Those players are to be released, and you are banned from signing them until Week 1 of the Regular season if nobody picks them up during the preseason.  If not released, you will face a suspension/expulsion.

Re: Off-Season

Looks like the CPU was a buncha silly gooses and drafted me two good offensive guards, which I already had young guys at. So if anyone wants some young offensive line, drop me a message. In addition, since I missed the draft and FA, I am looking to trade just about anyone not named JJ or Jadeveon.

EDJ, can we put lineman at TE in run heavy formations as subs? Like in 2 TE sets or something, throwing a lineman at TE? Let me know because it affects a FA move of mine. Thanks.

I already use formations with extra linemen, just wondering if we can manually sub them at TE as well.

having a swing lineman in the nfl is a common tactic. I don't see why it would be a problem in game?

I'm going to say that you cannot manually sub an offensive linemen in for a TE.
Yes, the NFL does employ swing Tackles. That is a product of the 46 player gameday roster in real life. Since Madden allows for all 53 active players to dress for each game, depth is not an issue, and having the extra TE on your roster is not a problem.

Secondly, eligible linemen substitutions are not announced in Madden. There's no way to know that linemen was inserted on the field until the offense is lining up.  Package/Formation subs from the playcall screen are fine if the formation has a built in Heavy option (Goalline, some I-Form and Strong-I, etc), but making any formation a Heavy formation manually will not be allowed.

Last night of the pre-season. Regular season will open tomorrow evening.

You have to have your roster down to 53 players. If you don't get down to that level, the CPU will make the cuts for you.
