Team Staff Overview
Every team owner has the option of designating a team manager and a team general manager (GM). The manager and GM positions are designed to help assist the owner in managing the team.
A team's manager has the same ability to control the team's depth chart and lineup when we add it as the owner has. A manager can not change the team's roster (sign or cut players).
The General Manager
A team's general manager has the same ability to control the team's roster as the owner has. This means that a general manager has the ability to offer contracts, resign players, cut players, trade players, etc. Choose your general manager wisely! We can't do anything if you don't like the roster move(s) your general manager made (such as trading the league MVP for a guy who can't hit and can't field). A general manager can not change the team's depth chart (or lineup when we add the adjust lineup feature).
Does a manager or general manager have to have a player on my team?
No. A team owner can choose anyone as a manager or general manager.
Will the manager or general manager have access to my team's forum?
Yes. When you appoint another user as a manager or general manager for your team, that user is given access to your team's forum. When/if you remove that user as your manager or general manager, that user will lose access to your team's forum (unless they should have forum access for another reason - they have a player on your team, etc).
Is it better to sign my player on a team that has a manager or general manager?
If your team's owner fails to put your player on the depth chart before going on a vacation, your team's manager can put your player on the depth chart.
If your team has a general manager, that general manager could cut or trade (if your player doesn't have a no trade clause in his contract) your player. This could be good (if your owner becomes inactive) or bad (if you didn't want your player to be cut or traded).
Why can't an owner be the manager or general manager of his team?
The owner already has all the powers of both a manager and a gm for his team, so there is no point in an owner being his own team's manager or gm.
Can I own one team and be the manager or general manager of another team?
