You don't grasp the full concept. Normally the bids are done in private anytime over the first 24 hours, with the high bid winning. If there are two or more bids that are the same, or within a certain percentage, those managers get a second chance to bid in the second 24 hours, again secretly, with the high bid in the second period taking the player. No last second bidding should be involved (because that is certainly crap). Don't poo-poo an idea before you know what's involved though.
I like the idea because it's a rigid schedule and you'll always know which guys are being auctioned on which days, so you'll never miss out on bidding for a player you want.
