What if we made it apply to only one player per year, and designate that player before the season even begins?
So for example, let's say I have three players each on the last year of their respective contracts (meaning I have them under contract for one more year, this next season coming up). During the off-season
, I'm allowed to label one
of those players as my "Bird's Rights" player. This way, come next
off-season, when the bidding starts on that player, he falls under the "Bird's Rights" set of rules. This keeps us from having to track ALL
of any given manager's BR eligible players. And, it keeps us from cherry picking guys during the season who we might want to resign next off-season. One player only, designated before
the season starts.
I know we still need to hammer out the actual BR rule(s), but maybe considering something like this might help clear things up a bit. Or, at least it would help alleviate a LOT
of potential confusion surrounding a whole slew of players.
At least, that's what I think.
