You still seem to think that everyone is ok with a 250K bid from a capped out team beating a 250K bid, entered first, from a non-capped team. Regardless of what you thought you wanted, you'll find that not only do the rules not support it as written (and they don't
) you'll find that the rest of the league thinks that's a terrible idea.
And yes, the rest of the draft is FCFS - the first guy (until we had capped teams) who put in a 250K bid was the only
guy allowed to do so. That's FCFS all the way, there's not even anything to argue about. You might not have wanted that to be the precedent, but it is.
The capped teams should neither need nor receive a bonus to land minimum salary free agents. Nor should non-capped teams be penalized bidding on minimum salary free agents. The only way we have any kind of unfairness is if we change how the auction currently works. Right now everyone is being treated completely fairly and evenly. Everyone has the same chance to bid on the same players with the same chances of success. Teams with space also have the option of outbidding.
It's only when you try and add back in rules that should (apparently) have been there in the first place that we have problems. What you want to see done is complicated (probably needlessly so at this point). We only have about a round of guys left, so why don't we proceed as we have been, and fix the auction for next time.
We do need to agree on a fix for FA though, since we'll have the same issue, and I have a feeling that if you expect your capped team (or any capped team) to win all tied min bids on all the FA as well then you're going to have a mutiny here (because it's friggin' ridiculous). I'm not trying to be provocative either, I honestly do think it's completely ridiculous and shouldn't even be contemplated.
