Ya, I must have missed Rose - I was lazy and only scanned the "winning bids" topic, not sure if he had been posted there yet.
Either way, good to see it being used. The way I think about it (which others likely disagee with), since we have 16 teams, at random there would be a 6.25% (1 in 16) chance that a player would go back to his original owner. I think other factors like team builds / needs, player likes / dislikes, cap room, etc. should already push that up to 15%+ chance. I'd like to see Bird rights be enough of an edge to push it up to 30%-ish keep rate.
But that's my personal vision and I think the consensus is for them to not quite be that powerful.
PS As a newbie, on the whole am finding the auction process very intuitive, easy to deal with, well-run - and pretty fun! Nice job y'all!
