Hi --

When signing players to new contracts, I'll sometimes get the error message, "This contract is not evenly distributed. Please distribute the money evenly and then resubmit your offer." I get what it means generally -- a given year should not depart drastically in dollar amount from another year. But does anyone have a specific explanation or definition for what "evenly distributed" means? Or maybe it's supposed to be vague...

Season - This is the actual season salary that you would like to offer the player. Season 1 refers to the first season in which the player is not already under contract with your franchise. So, if the player is currently arbitration eligible and has not gone through an arbitration hearing, season 1 means this current season. If the player is in the final year of his contract with your team and will soon become a free agent, season 1 indicates the next Hardball Dynasty season. In a two-year contract, neither season can comprise more than 60% of the total value of the contract. In a three-year contract, no season can comprise more than 40% of the total value of the contract. In a four-year contract, no season can comprise more than 30% of the total value of the contract. In a five-year contract, no season can comprise more than 25% or less than 10% of the total value of the contract. There is a maximum allowable offer of $20 million for any season. The minimum for any season is the minimum annual salary at that level. For the big leagues, this is 325K. To change the offer for any season, please click in the box next to the season and enter an integer value. For a three-year contract, you must enter in values for the first three seasons, but you may leave seasons 4 and 5 blank. The total value of the contract will appear at the bottom of the page.

"Evenly distributed" means the evil rich people are paying their "fair share" to support my entitlements. Until I feel satisfied that I'm getting enough goodies, it is not evenly distributed.
