For owners getting an error when trying to join the league, try putting the update1 into your league folder first, then try update2 if that doesn't fix it. Try update3 if all else fails.

put the files here;

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Solecismic Software\Front Office Football Eight\leagues\00865001

Update;

http://www.thecfl.us/update1.zip

Per Masked, thanks for figuring it out;

1) Delete all MP games
2) Enter New Career from the Controls/Participants menu. League: 00856001, Team your default team, Begin without Draft
3) Enter FTP Information -- Received Message "Entry Succeeded"
4) Run Import Game Files / Re-entered FTP info / Import Succeeded -- ERROR - unable to load record book
5) Copied JUST the frc file from the update1 zip and tried to reload the game
6) VOILA! It is finally asking me for a team password
7) Ran Import configuration
'8) Reopened game
9) Ran Restore Career
10) All seems good

I had no luck using these files either, but I am not sure if I am using them right. At what point in the set up process should I use these files.

After you get the error about the record book or depth chart or some other error.

Alright, I'm going to document my attempt to set up here:

1) Delete all MP games
2) Enter New Career from the Controls/Participants menu. League: 00856001, Team Denver (08), Begin without Draft
3) Enter FTP Information -- Received Message "Entry Succeeded"
4) Run Import Game Files / Re-entered FTP info / Import Succeeded -- ERROR - unable to load record book
5) Copied JUST the frc file from the update1 zip and tried to reload the game
6) VOILA! It is finally asking me for a team password
7) Ran Import configuration
8) Reopened game
9) Ran Restore Career
10) All seems good

Sounds promising. The error I received did specifically mention the frc file and I was never asked for the team password.

Thanks Masked!!!

I'm in using Masked's method. Note: make sure your are loading the .frc from update 1 into the leagues directory, not the leaguedata directory.
