Do we have anyone wanting to leave or join for 2019?

It's easier to decide the faith of current riders if you know the outcome of the trading. Looking at my own team, I will have to say goodbye to one rider if 2 deadlines, but with 1 deadline and some smart trading he is likely to stay.

Not a big deal, it's the same for everyone, but it would change the dynamics ever so slightly.

Deadline for all things contact-y before trading opens, case for: budgets, rosters, wages and contract lengths are all set in stone
Against: less room to swat away threats of steals if you don't agree to trade by increasing wage

The biggest gaping hole for me in the last few windows was that a cascade of wage increases and trades were announced just before the draft opened - rendering quite some research and preparation futile. A 48-hour window from the transfer (and possibly contract) window shutting and draft starting should negate that, at least.

Before the summer draft we have one deadline for everything, here we have two. How about having just one deadline on Jan 9th? Contract renewals would/could be affected by how the trading goes.

Revised as per typo pointed out by EPO:

Cordi has come forward with a wish to enter a new team. Anyone else fancy their hand?

Any of our existing managers want out of the greatest dynasty cycling game ever?

Probable timeline for winter draft of 2019:
December 31st: deadline for renewing contracts expiring in 2018 and extensions/wage increases of up to four contracts not ending in 2018
January 9th: Deadline for trades
January 11th - 12th: Winter draft

I already have a big-ass list of steals - but hard decisions on whether to extend LLS and Laporte.
