If the CPU doesn't have enough cap room, it doesn't stop them - they'll simply sign players to insanely unrealistic contracts.

In one of my CFMs, I just had the Falcons (CPU controlled team) franchise tag Julio Jones for $12.5 million, then sign BOTH Dez Bryant AND Demaryius Thomas (they both reached free agency) to long-term deals. In the same offseason.

They managed to get Demaryius to accept a measly 5-year / $33.8 million deal. That's an average of just $6.76 million per season for a 27-year old 90+ OVR #1 WR. That's absurdly low.

Demaryius will likely be breaking the bank in real life in the neighborhood of $10-12+ million per season average. They basically got him to accept a long-term contract worth HALF of what his market value is...

Re: Was/has there been any franchise info released?

I think you will see some CFM news here in the coming days. People like us are beating down EA's door to get that info out to our leagues. It also gives us the pull we need to distract our hungry owners. I really hope we don't see any salary glitches, and I hope the ability to reset cap for new owners would be huge.

One can only hope!

It's not about being ahead, I'm just trying to keep the community informed about the game when I hear some new info.

I'm confident in what I said and I'm not one to just say stuff for no reason.

Of course, the FranchisePlay interview is where Rex said it and more than one GC said on twitter we would have plenty to discuss for CFM.

As for the Brian Murray favorite part of the game that hasn't been announced part.

@jpdavis1982: @ThatBuckeye oh well someone posted something you had said about CFM. Anyway do you have any idea what Brian Murray may have had in mind?

@ThatBuckeye: @jpdavis1982 @ThatBuckeye oh yeah and I know what he was talking about. you will see in a few weeks or whenever they decide to reveal.

Re: Was/has there been any franchise info released?

Whether I purchase or not depends 100% on what improvement they made to CFM.

It is very worrisome that they haven't release any information yet.

I do however sense a different approach by most major development companies in terms of feeding the public information.

NBA 2k15, WWE 2k15, Madden 15 CFM details, PES 15 etc. all haven't announced much yet...and it's only 2 or so months untill release date.

Anyway back on topic, if no details are revealed...no buy, if little to disappointing improvements are revealed...again no buy. Franchise was incredible 10 years back...EA has really dropped the ball on franchise the last couple of years.

If assisted tackles doesn't work again, and the AI doesn't practice to improve their backups...then I'll seriously consider not getting the game.

Shopmaster said on GC Radio Tuesday that they will have more than one show about CFM when the info comes out. That should tell you they didn't just barely touch CFM this year.

Re: Was/has there been any franchise info released?

I hate to show my hand I guess you could say, but with all the gameplay improvements I've seen and with all the talk of realism and balance from Rex Dickson, I'm pretty convinced that I'm getting it. I've basically just been playing Madden 12 since that came out. I don't expect anyone else to do another roster update for that game although I haven't looked yet, dont know if it can even be ported again.

I'm just hoping CFM is a significant improvement over CCM. I tried it on 13, and it was ok but I felt really spoiled on Madden 12 with the in season editing and the off season felt significantly better. I have a feeling I'm going to get bored of this game after 3 seasons when the progression becomes very unrealistic and the bugs pop up. I know that's skeptical and all but that's what I'm fearing.

Re: Was/has there been any franchise info released?

I don't think the lack of information on CFM is a sign of bad things to come. We're still a month away from release and in a "normal" year, we would be within the first 2 weeks of release of NCAA Football.

I would expect the information on CFM to come out around the kick off of preseason football, which is only a handful of days away.
