I don't think the auction will get out of hand should we open it up either, not when a bunch of guys are aleady not nominating anyone. Anyway, we'd naturally need some goodly portion of the GMs to be on board to change anything, but I don't think, in this case, that there will be any difficulty there, aside from some guys not being on enough to notice that there's a rules amendment on the table.
I agree with this post entirely. I nominated Calderon last tuesday and he didn't close until yesterday. Based on the previous rule, I was prohibited from nominating any other free agents until he did. It just seems like the restriction on nominations is hindering the process now rather than helping it.
As we'd say here in south Texas, "Te dije!" (pronounced "teh...the [as in "The
quick brown fox...]...heh. Teh...the...heh. Te dije!" - there's your Spanish lesson for the day, kiddos - but don't ask me for more though, because all you'll get is puro Tex-Mex "Spanglish"!
In other words, "I told you so!"
Not trying to pile on or anything like that, but that's exactly
what I was talking about some time ago, when the whole free agency thing started up. Like I said, I saw it possibly happening then - and now, here we are.
But again, I'm not trying to bicker or complain because I know that doesn't solve anything. We do
need to keep this as an ongoing discussion so that maybe at the worst, next season we can revamp the process. Otherwise, we'll all forget about it over time, next year will come around, and it won't be a priority again until after it hits us this same time next year.
Like I've said before, I'm on board with any tweaks or changes we make, even if it's just for this season or just for the next few weeks, as long as it helps the process along.
And even though I've already got the minimum required number of players for my squad (12 if I'm reading the rules thread correctly), I still want to pick up those two extra guys just to get my group to 14 - so yes, I'll still be nominating until I max out.
