      We learned last year you can offer 200 when you nominate. It is a random who goes first with money type game.

      US multislotters need to go first, nominate the big guys for a dollar, let you rich bastards waste your cash, and then get our guys for 1 dollar each.
      I wonder is it worth implementing an understanding that players must be nominated at $1?

      • I heard earlier that you can't trade FAAB money before the auction. Is there a reason why? A guy like me who has to play for the future would be willing to trade some $$$ for a pick.. similar to in the NBA where a team with cap space, but no incentive to win, would trade money (or a bad contract/cap space) for a pick as free agents generally would not want to go there even though they have the cap space for it.

        A guy with more money (ie, cap space) to spend in free agency could get the guy they wanted as they can out bid everyone.. and not rely on luck (like when they get their nomination window).

        Might be more work for the commish to change the auction bids for certain teams.. and I'm not even sure if that's doable in Yahoo.

          i would like most open slots to nominate first, and go down the list. watch all the middle sized fish go while the guys with 200 maybe buy, or wait and see if they get their guy.

                  Your FAAB budget doesn't exist until the auction and your roster is locked starting September 1st until the auction.

                  If the league were to permit the trading of future FAAB it would likely drastically change the auction. It would be a big move away from the spirit of what it was about when the league was created eight years ago.

                    Yes, I guarantee you I'll break the auction if we're allowed to trade for FAAB.

                      I personally like your idea a lot.

                        That's fine.. since rosters are locked in, I get the point there. Maybe we allow auction money to be dealt in trades during the draft up until Sep 1. Like when the summer officially starts. That's when everyone gets a fresh $200.. so perhaps an idea for next season?

                        I'm not sure what the original spirit of the auction was. Isn't it like "free agency" in the NBA? Guys with cap space (ie, money) get first crack at the top dogs in the league. If everyone is in the same situation money wise, it's really first come first serve (ie, quickest trigger, or lady luck depending on when your nomination window is).

                        Just throwing an idea on the table.. that's all.

                          There's always plenty of FA's that become available during the season to spend your FAAB $ on. If you don't use it all in the draft, you'll have it for them or to trade someone else.

                          I would not be in favor of changing the current system. It's been working great and provides an even playing field(and entertainment) going into the auction draft every year, especially for those with one roster slot to fill.

                          I do think the auctioning for all players should start at $1... It's anticlimactic and not as fair to start/closeout a bid by hitting $200 right away. You're dependent on where you fall in the random draft order to get your guy.

                            Its also unintended that guys would be nominated for max money and not hit the board for competition.

                              Just looking at the history of the waiver system.. most guys go for $1 or even $0... it's why guys with one roster spot have no problem spending all their FAAB on one guy in the auction... that's fine.. works the same way in the NBA. Teams spend all their open cap space on a max guy, and fill their roster with minimum players (ie, $0 players).

                              But if everyone has the same amount of cap it's lady luck instead of strategy. And typing "200" and hitting enter isn't really strategy either. It's whoever has the fastest fingers.. which really shouldn't be a "tactic" to get better.

                              I'll go with the majority of course. Currently I don't think having money during the season (at least a significant amount of money) is really helpful, unless if some guy goes off and nobody saw it coming. Even then that guy will probably go for like $15 at most.

                                I floated that in the past and people didn't go for it. Happy to revisit though.
