I have no players cuz people have bid right before the 24 hour period was up- Jefferson and then Stoudamire. So I bid again on Stoudamire and the bidding is paused right before I finally would get a player? It is a lot easier to plan who to bid on if you have a player or 2 so you know how to shape your team. If the bidding is paused now it is right before I finally get a player or 2- Stoudamire and Calderon. I think it affects me more than anyone. Its also kind of arbitrary. It could've been paused right after he said he was quitting. Several guys got players since then.
I realize this is a problem.But then your going to restart another 24 hours on those 2 guys.Thats not good
I don't think you understand the rules correctly. A player is won when no one has placed a bid for 24 hours.
Jefferson for example:
My winning bid was Mon Aug 31, 2009 at 1:26 pm
Your bid (and also the bid before the winning bid) was Sun Aug 30, 2009 11:01 pm
In order to win Al Jefferson, all you would need to do is outbid me 24 hours from 1:26 PM on Monday, meaning you had until Tuesday at 1:26 PM to place a higher bid.
I placed my winning bid with 8.5 hours still on your bids 24 hour clock.
Does this all make sense? Maybe I'm confused. I don't get how its worse for you.
