Cutting players who have passed away

In regard of the rule undermentionned, if you cut a player passed mid season or if you cut him before mid season but now we are passed that, the cap penalty doesnt apply anymore or get cancelled?


  1. An exception to the cap penalty occurs if an active player passes away mid-season. In this case, cap penalties for the player will be removed globally and the player will be removed from the player pool

Stepping back, it just means that if a player dies then any cap penalties associated with that player are removed, whether you had cut him before his passing or if you cut him after his passing. “Mid season” could read the same as “during the season.”
