Eric, that is just ridiculous, and has nothing to do with this conversation. A little confusing too.   laughing

Finally got through this monstrosity.
1) TT could have stalled out at the start I guess but in reality it was just slow moving. I was away so I didn't have time to start auctions until later but it doesn't seem to really have changed anything.
2) In theory I like the proxy bidding idea but I'm not sure how high I would bid anyway because it limits you to how many simultaneous players you can be bidding on. e.g. if I put a max of 50 on a player most proxy bid systems will prevent you from using all 50 on a different player even if the current bid is only 15. I wrote a system for my previous league that would try to allow you to use the difference but I'm pretty sure MFL doesn't have that.
3) Increasing bids by $1. I don't want to overpay so this is the way I find out what someone else's max is. Sure waiting 23 hours to bid is annoying but it doesn't seem to me like owners are doing that just to do that.
4) We're 10 days into RFA and most interesting players are up for auction or already concluded. I think this pace is reasonable. We have another 30+ days before the next item on the calendar so I don't see any reason to force things to move faster.
5) Camels, Snapple, Unicycles: WTF?#!%#?!#@

Dang, 11 of the 13 active RFA threads in DD are from 2 owners. Yep, WB totals are down there. Coming to an end soon I imagine.

Never mind, I'm an idiot.

At any point during stage 3 if the number of active auctions is down to 5 or less (per conference), the RWP or RWVP may declare a one week deadline to start any more auctions. Auctions may go beyond this deadline but no new auctions will be allowed past this deadline

Andy has TT in his veins. And Justin is by far the biggest culprit when it comes to the $1 bid.

No RG3 would never make it to RFA auction, any savvy owner would protect him.  laughing

Looks like a knockout blow for the Eternals who went on to place 3 separate bids on 3 separate players within 10 minutes of the Mayhem's bid.

Tell us how you really feel Brad. Also Andy, that was just rude. I don't feel good about myself anymore. I may go see if I can win a player for 4 WB's so I can feel good.

Well...this is one reason why I don't agree with those that whine about the 24 hour clock or who want the ebay style bidding system.

I am low on funds. I wanted the player and wasn't sure if/when Brad would call it quits. I also wanted other players so if everyone was up simultaneously I am fucked...by bidding slowly I was able to explore options to get more WB (which I did and it didn't work out).

It's a game people. At any point I suppose Brad could have bid up his own guy (knowing my balance) and forced me to act quickly. I could have lucked out if I placed a bid and 24 hours elapsed when Brad was unable to stop in or forgot to bid or something. Also, MFL is down so it was harder to work the trade angle but had I obtained more WB, I assure you I would have raised to one more than Brad had to force his hand.



Not everyone is gonna like it...but it's nothing personal and it's within the spirit of the game completely. It makes much less sense if Brad and I are both sitting on a mountain of cash like we were in the TT but even working the "mistake angle" leaves it in play.

Oh well. I don't bemoan the dance we were doing. I sure wish we had a proxy in place so that someone couldn't "hope for a mistake" though.

Who knows, maybe I should have upped the bid... Would that have enticed the Carla bear out of her bush league slumber to place a bid earlier? I dunno. At this point, I think her best explanation for me would be to say that she was tired of watching it go back and forth $1 at a time. Maybe she was figuratively driving the car and you and I were in the backseat saying, I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you... I don't know. But, coming in 5-6 days after the fact. Weak sauce.

I'm on both sides of this debate. I like the proxy style bidding and I also like this setup. I guess it's just which one you are used to and more comfortable with.

Honestly though, if I had a choice I would pick the proxy bidding through MFL. Only because that's the way I'm used to and I like it a lot. But there is really nothing wrong with this setup and I don't see a need to change anything, because we are all doing a pretty good job with it.

This set up is perfect. Really can't see what all the fuss is about. It allows you to bid $1 at a time or go all in from the off if you wanna. As Nick said, what else is there to do in April? My other leagues (bar GLDL where we had RFA as well) are dead at the moment.
