The TV cap based on the current CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) is 1750. The CBA sets the TV cap based on negotiations with current owners. The current CBA is set to expire at the end of Season XV. When the CBA expires a new CBA is negotiated by the acting President of the Player's Association and must be agreed upon by a majority of the coaches in order to be passed. All teams are required to "trim their rosters" to the TV cap before the start of the first Pre-Season game.
NWFL Players Association:
In order to appropriately monitor money and prevent teams from stockpiling cash to unload on a slew of new players after cutting back to the TV cap the NWFL has incorporated a "bank" system into the CBA. All teams are allowed to bank up to 100k in their treasury without penalty. Any team with an amount over that sum is required to count the extra money towards their TV cap at a rate of 10TV per 10k of gold. This means that your tournament weight (TW) is allowed to be up to 100 points higher then the TV cap at the start of the pre-season for cash only.
If a coach has any "Miss Next Game" players on their roster prior to the start of the pre-season then they need to account for the cost of that player in their TV. Please do not forget to add up the TV cost of any skills the player has obtained.
Teams with less than 11 permanent players must allocate enough TV to hire on journeymen in order to fill up to 11. However, they do not need to allocate TV for journeymen used to cover for MNG players.
TV bonuses will be awarded during seasons for finishing in the top three of the Preseason, for winning a division during the Regular Season, for winning your conference finals in the Playoffs, and for winning the Superior Bowl. These TV bonuses will be applied to the cap for the next season that team is participating in. Details on bonus amounts can be found in the appropriate section of the main League page.
Teams caught breaking the CBA will be "fined" in a manner left to the discretion of the acting League Administrators as a whole based on the severity of the infraction. Fines can range anywhere from a deduction in standings points to dismissal from the league all together.
