He did, right?  Isn't Tom capped at 97 and Bern can go as high as 104?


That's how I see it

Just remember the current exchange rate.  WB's are like gold, don't undersell! grin

I wonder if there is a middle ground somewhere.  Maybe something like you can nominate your own players, but there's a 5 WB fee or something (or more).  Would give those who feel strongly about it the option, but it wouldn't just be an almost free opportunity to get your nominations out of the way.

I genuinely feel like there are infinite possibilities when it comes to making rules.  RW is proof of that and I know of many other leagues and folks who have devised all sorts of crazy (in a good way) stuff.

Personally I like this obviously but if others want to brainstorm along the lines you're talking...all the power to them!  Maybe someone will come up with something even better.

I could be wrong, I just think on this topic the opinions are differing mainly because of what folks see as the outcome for this process.  


In case anyone is going to put effort into a proposal, let me help with a few key principals for RW...

Current owners have a few options to retain players but very few are clear-cut advantages.
All owners have a means to acquire MOST players on expiring contracts.
The strategies of owners are endless.

If a proposal is going to swing things heavily in favor of one side or the other then I don't think it will be successful here as that isn't the intent.  The old way was flawed and the way you could tell was that it was clearly advantageous for current owners to get their tagged players up for auction first so they could control much more the overall RFA outcome for their team.

Hope that helps.

If we have an idea on this should we post here or email you?

Shoot me an email if it's a proposal and I'll note it for January (and/or reply if I need clarification and such). Thanks

Easy there Lil' Buddy...I'm doing you a solid here.  I read an article by Mike Florio, that suggested it is not a sound practice to have two WR's from the same team.  Just trying to keep you from making any further mistakes...You see here at the DOC, we genuinely care about our brethren.  love

OMG BERN AND TOM are so awesome! KILL KILL KILL! This is like an old fashion gladiatorial battle where we all want it to end with someone getting a sword through the throat! KILL KILL KILL! WOOOOOOO I wish I had more WB's I would steal anyone right now, I would steal my mom's backup Kicker if I could!

I feel so bad for Bern. Bern, do you feel like you are being pushed around the playground and you can't defend yourself?

I think I've been given too many WB's back into my account.  I was down to 4 WB after the Ogletree battle.  Oaktown won Diggs but that was only a 25 WB investment, not 50.  Shouldn't I now be sitting at 29 WB's?  I retained Ogletree so those initial 50 WB's I put up are still gone, right?  Just wanted to make sure.

Hey Bud...they haven't been adjusted yet.  Nick just highlighted (green) to indicate the auctions are closed; Andy will process with the final calculations (grey). thumbsup

Ahhh, I just saw the 54 on the MFL site and I thought 50 was added instead of 25. high five

In hindsight, I'm wondering if it would have been easier for Bern to defend Carr if he had made him his FT and Ogletree his SFT.

So since we are in stage 3, I don't have to have an auction that I started to bid on anyone right?

Stage 2 was that way also. Only stage 1 had that stipulation.

I've thought of that too.  It's just, I invested so much into getting Carr, I didn't want to risk exposing him.  At one time, I also thought of not using the SFT, going with the FT on Carr, extending Ogletree 1 year and leaving JPP unprotected and just matching whatever was bid on him.  I don't think he would've come close to the 100 WB that Ogletree did.  If I didn't use the STF, at least then I would've had an extra 100 WB's to match bids on Carr & JPP.  Who knew? shrug

The deadline for new nominations in Restricted Free Agency (both conferences) is 11:59pm CT on Monday May 1st.
Auctions can continue past this deadline but no new auctions may be started beyond this point.

If one of them wins the title, we're all gonna look like idiots. If anyone in DD wins (again)...


The TT conference needs a good old fashioned bully who'll turn their WBs into players who score points. Seems like first one to bid 20 gets their guy and everyone is all polite about letting them have 'em. laughing

It's a bit intimidating, for sure. Knowing next year I'll have to protect some guys from being poached by big stacks makes me hestitant to spend much now. And so the cycle of penny pinching continues on.
