    Rules of Free Agency

    Free Agency begins Monday, March 1st 12:01 am (Eastern)

    1. If you failed to report a player that should not be on the list (UFA, RFA), he is no longer on your team due to negligence on behalf of the GM. Plenty of time was given beforehand so there is no excuse for it.

    2. We use a bidding format in the free agency forum.

    3. When a bid lasts 48 hours without being raised, the bidding team is awarded the player.

    4. Minimum bid is 300K, there is no maximum bid.

    5. Minimum bid increments are the following:
    $300,000 - $1,000,000 = $50,000 increments
    $1,000,000 - $5,000,000 = $100,000 increments
    $5,000,000 & Up = $250,000 increments

    6. You cannot go over the salary cap at anytime with your bids. If you need more room to make a bid, you must cut a player before placing that bid.

    7. You cannot have more than 10 bids simultaneously, if you do, you will forfeit all bids.

    8. You cannot trade or cut players you sign in free agency. You may trade your franchised/transitioned players or RFA tenders that were not bid on during free agency. The only exception to this is that you can cut players signed to minimum or slightly higher contracts ($400K).

    9. You cannot retract bids.

    10. When bidding on restricted free agents: Restricted free agents that are not tendered become unrestricted free agents and the original team gets no compensation. If they have a low tender and a bid is not matched, the original team gets draft pick of the round the player was drafted in as compensation (i.e. Joe Blow was a 3rd round pick in 2001...Compensation is a 3rd round pick). If the player was undrafted, no compensation is awarded. A mid/low level tender has 2nd round compensation, a mid level tender has a 1st round compensation and a high level tender has 1st and 3rd round compensation.

    11. Franchise/Transition players: When a franchise player receives a bid that is not matched the original team gets two first round picks as compensation. If the bidding team does not have two first round picks he must acquire them before bidding or workout acceptable compensation with the original team. Teams get no compensation for losing Transition players.

    12. Please do not welcome players to your team in the player's position thread. It only makes a mess and we'll make a thread specifically for you to welcome your players.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    question.

    If you are outbid on a player and wish to "move on" can you bid on another player and then the player you were outbid on doesn't count toward your number of bids?

    for example..let's say I have 1 bid out on a player...I get out bid...I then bid on another.

    Do I have 2 bids out or 1?

    I think you have your bid until that player is signed?

    You can have a maximum of 10 bids concurrently in which you are the "leading" bidder ... bids on players that have been exceeded don't matter.

    I don't know the number off the top of my head, but let's say the transition tag salary is like $4 million... the bid has to be higher than $4 million to start off with... if that makes sense.

    The bid will be locked 24 hours from the start date and then you can decide whether to match or not.

    That's because we're going by as if there were a CBA in place.

    Is there a time limit to allow more bids on Transition players? Say someone bids on Kampman and I decide to match it only an hour later do I still have to wait for the 24 hours to go through to declare him on my team in case others want to bid? Also, are you only allowed a one time only bid on a Franchise or Transition player?

    No, once a full 24 hours hit, then the bidding is over. So on Tuesday at 12:01AM, the bids on franchise/transition players are locked. You won't match until after the full 24 hours are through. So if I bid $6M on Kampman... you won't say if you match it or not until 12:01AM ET on Tuesday.

    two questions as a follow up to this subject.

    1. if there are two teams bidding on one of these players, the highest bid "wins" up to 12:01AM. Don't know that this has ever happened before (hasn't since I joined up), but if you're bid comes after 12:01AM ET, you're out, right?

    2. How long does the original team the player belonged to have to match the offer after 12:01AM ET?

    1. Pretty much, it sucks for them... but that just tells you... if you're going to bid, don't *****foot around. Everyone knows their price...

    2. I'd like to have it figured out as soon as possible, so sometime Tuesday will be nice. Again, everyone knows their price so I don't see the point of letting them wait it out.

    Do Franchised players count towards our maximum of 10 concurrent bids? Or are they independent of our FA bids?
