And counting against the cap too right? Because that's the implication. Kal is also assuming, since he thinks he's correct about min bids, that if he bids second, and bids the minimum, that the other team will lose that player unless they up their bid by 10K and thus have the entire bid come off the cap. So he'd still win tie breakers except against capped out teams.
I just want to make sure, after all this hullabaloo, that we all agree to the same thing. Because I'm ok with outbidding by 10K, but I'm not ok with him winning all min tiebreakers the way he thinks he should. I say he, but this isn't aimed at Kal, he's just the only guy on that particular side of the argument right now. I guess there's several questions...
1. Should capped players be allowed to bid at all?
2. Should minimum offers count against the cap?
3. Should cap maxed teams automatically win tied minimum bids against non cap maxed teams?
4. Should non-capped teams have to spend less than normal to outbid a min offer from a capped team?
5. How much should that amount be set at, if necessary.
1. Yes - we've already had guys bid and win, so I'm not for changing it back and having to undo potions of the auction. We can't really change this one even if a majority say no.
2. No, we decided this earlier in the auction and people have already bid using these rules.
3. No. For all the reasons I've listed.
4. Yes, I think this balances things nicely.
5. I'm ok with whatever number people like. 10K or 50K seem the popular answers, I'll say 50K.
