This appears to be the rule we are looking for. I don't think Fenris needs to outbid Kal based on the rule above.
In the interests of transparency, here's the part of the auction rules post that suggests that Kal might have had something else in mind...
team a has 4M free and bids 3M on a player x. team b has 3M free and bids it all on player x. in order to get the player team a now has outbid team b's offer, otherwise player x signs with team b.
My problem is that I can't find any rules whatsoever that this is a legitimate example of, and it certainly isn't supported by the rule you quoted above. We'll see what Kal has to say tomorrow.
