Here's what's in the rules thread:
-at the start of the off-season all teams will be awarded mle. mle lasts for one year. if it is not used up before next off-season starts, it is forfeited. it can not be traded or combined with other exceptions, it can only be used to sign one or more players. mle counts against team's salary cap as one year contract would. at any point of the off-season a team can forfeit remaining mle and receive additional cap space. teams near the hard cap will only receive part of the mle that brings them to the hard cap limit. when the off-season ends and season starts mle can no longer be forfeited.
That's the way I understood it. In fact, if there was anything I did wrong (technically
), it was to waive the remainder of my MLE, which I'm not allowed to do at this time (according to the rule).However
...the remainder of my MLE is only .15M, which isn't even enough for a minimum contract offer. And since it can't be used in combination with any other offer, there's really no sense to carry it. The .15 still counts against my cap whether it's there as MLE or not, but it's pretty much dead weight if it can't be used.
Either way, that's what I'm seeing as far as the rule goes. Any other opinions?
