So that pretty much clinches it right. New MAX is 40M. Basically the same as no cap except it does prevent the extremely stupid from being extremely stupid I guess.

This does mean also that should TWO people be close to extremely stupid, that the tie-breaker is random right?

Yes, I understand tie-breaker to be random as well.

That should apply both if two owners bid the max for the same players (less likely in my opinion) or if two players both have approximately the same cap room remaining and choose to bid it on the same player (another situation in which ties can arise in our system, particularly if we make the min bid increment larger for some contracts).

I think the second situation, while still not highly likely, is perfectly possible with enough FA auctions over enough years. The first one I'm not as sure will occur.

Umm..by my count no max is leading by one with Rob still to vote. Fell free to double check though.

EDIT: just counted again, and No Max is leading by 1. Rob still hasn't voted on this so nothing is clinched. All we know is that 40M won't win outright.

This is why I asked, must have put one vote in the wrong category or something. HURRAY for no max.

Sorry for the delay was away this weekend with limited access.

I see no player worth $40M so to be this cap is only present to protect the crazy which isn't my issue ...

No max.

That's that then.

1. Raise the max wins by 12 votes to 4.

2. No Max wins by 9 votes to 7.
