You might be near the cap, but you have more than 4 players.

That's the point - I'll be capped out quite soon, but you can't point your finger at me and say "you drafted like crap anyway, so who cares". I'll still be in the same boat, and I really don't think the fact that I drafted a decent team up until now, while some guys have held back, should have any impact on minimum bids (as far as treating mine substantially different form anyone else's goes). I'm just trying to stress that the question isn't about any one GM and where he's at, it's about what's balanced and fair for everyone.


Whether the team sucks or not. The owner with cap space budgeted his/her money for a purpose. So they could drop the hammer late and control the auction at some point.

Owners with little cap space bought big name, big production & consistency. Using the hammer early therefore not saving an auction lifeline. But based on the rules there are small exceptions like now.

Remember Fenris(we) is debating 2 things. The actual verbiage of the rule. And the situation.

Third party minimum bids? I believe someone mentioned it as being not allowed. Are we clear on this?

Nenad Krstic

Team A(with cap space) 250k
Team B(no cap space) 250k

Scenario

Team c(no cap space) 250k
Team d(no cap space) 250k

How will this play out? Team d is the lead bid? :-?

Ok guys, had some time this morning. Went through everyone's roster to make sure all the players were there AND year 1 salaries checked out.

You guys still need to make sure years 2 -4 are ok. ;-)

I think this is a real situation and I dont think that the first bid should automically win, in a real life scenario the player would look at all options before deciding who to play for.

I suggest all players caught in this kind of a "tie" situation be moved over to a new category for bidding once the regular season auction is complete. This way you can use some of your MLE to sign them. Basically if more than one person wants the player BUT no one is willing to move their bid to $300 K (or $260 or $350) then the players chooses to wait until MLE becomes available.

Teams with cap can drop the hammer - they can outbid the minimum offer. My point is that that offer shouldn't be treated any differently no matter who makes it.

I'm not sure setting the bids by until after is the way to go either - that assumes people can match, which so far they can't according to the rules.

Anyway...

Can I just bid 350K and we can call this over and hope it never comes up again? :-D

Seriously?

Once the draft is complete we should probably setup a google doc or something so we can see where we're all at.
