    author: ToneDef724
    
    1. Legal Info
    
    This section is usually for a bunch of mumbo-jumbo about where a guide can and
    cannot be posted and so forth. But im not really concerned with limiting this
    guide's usage, as the only reason it is being written is for people to use it.
    GAMEFAQS.com is only place currently authorized to post this document, and as 
    far as personal and private usage go right ahead. IF you want to post this 
    guide on a your own site, all I ask is that you contact me to let me know that 
    you are doing so. As long as the document is not altered and I am given proper 
    credit, there will be no problems.

    3. Intro
    
    I've always been one of those people who is very picky about having updated 
    rosters in video games, especially in a game like Madden, which alows you to
    alter the default rosters in just about any way imaginable. I am writing this 
    for those Gamecube owners like me who don't have access to the Roster Update
    downloads directly from EA available to PS2 users(although im sure it would 
    serve its puropse for users on any platform) I would like to point out 
    (although I think it is obvious) that the contents of this document are a 
    compilation of information posted on various NFL and team related websites. 
    This document's sole purpose is to make said information more accesible and 
    easily readable in one document.

    6. Transactions by Team
    
    ******note on retiring players*******
    You may be wondering how to simulate a player retirement. Simplest way is to 
    just release them then edit their essential ratings down to zero so that 
    their overall is low (in 2003 it would go down to a 12 or 13) and nobody
    wil sign them. 
    *************************************
    
    *************************************
    It should be noted that there are alot of problem encountered when trying to 
    cut/sign players, due to minimum roster requirements. I hope to have CAPS in
    order to reduce the occurance of this problem (see CAPS section for more info)
