disregard. i see it in the post.
How are ties broken if two players bid the same amount for a player?
what is going to happen if i am in a league and it is not filled by the start of the draft or that season? will it still run or will i have to join another 1?
Thinking about possibly trying this. Some questions:
1. Is there a single round of bidding each week for all players dropped the previous week, or separate 48 hour periods for each dropped player? Subquestions:
1a) If it is a single round for multiple players and I have $50, can I bid $40 on two RBs knowing that I will not get both? When more than one player is up for grabs, what determines who goes first?
1b) If each dropped player generates a separate auction, what happens when a player is dropped less than 48 hours before his game that week?
2. Just to confirm from the message below, a team can bid $0 on a player and get him if nobody else bids? (I think it's a reasonable feature.)
3. Commissioner can adjust the available cash to each team on a week-by-week basis? If so, this is a selling point: I'm thinking something like the following:
--everyone starts with $50 plus $3 for each player that drafted ahead of them in round one of the draft
--each week, every team adds $2 for each team that outscored them that week ($1 for ties), and $10 if they lost ($5 for a tie)
This would give the lowest teams a fair but not overwhelming advantage.
O.K. so now we just make up the rules as we go from week to week? Who
proposed this change and why wasn't a league vote proposed? Does this
mean we can just make rule changes as it suits the teams who would like
to make changes anytime it may help thier team? I thought this league
would follow general democratic institutions as does our great country,
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Another change of rules, another possible
advantage for the already teams to stay in control. When will those in need,
get a fair chance? I believe in a still assumed 'FREE' country, this RULE Change
should at least get a fair vote, by ALL members of the league! Is this still the
U.S.A.? Or are we just losing more rights to the establishment? Go U.S.A.
What in the world are you talking about?
A couple quick questions on this feature.
1. if a teams budget runs out, they can still bid on the player (obviously 0 if they have none left) and then just not get him if someone else bids?
2. say if you bid $12 on a player, and the 2nd highest bids $9, Do you get the player for $10 or are you still paying $12?
1. You can still bid on waivers, but the amount will be 0, so if anyone does bid at least a $1 then that person has no chance.
2. You pay whatever amount you bid. If you bid $50 and the next highest is $1, you still lose $50 when you get the player.
It would be great if the you could set a min bid amount, in our league there is a $2 min bid, if you are the lone bidder at $10 you only have to pay the minimum.........
ohh ok thats what i thought, Thanks i appreciate it.
Being able to still bid 0 is a good feature. Yahoo doesn't do this.
No.1 bid auction in Japan
kinda sucks on how we haveta wait till after week 1 to start the bidding. Our league had to work around that so teams can pick up players during preseason
What happens after the first round of bidding is done (i.e. on Wednesday). Does it go back to the first come first serve option? Do the dropped players go into waivers again and the bidding system does another round?
You can submit as many claims as you want--we'll process them all.
After claims process on Wednesday (or whatever day your league selects) all players not dropped during the claims are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
