    Rules of Free Agency

    Free Agency begins Wednesday, March 2nd 12:01 am (Eastern)

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

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

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

    4. 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

    5. 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.

    6. You cannot have more than 10 bids simultaneously, if you do, you will forfeit your most recent bids to get you at 10 bids.

    7. 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).

    8. You cannot retract bids.

    9. 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.

    Make sure you guys aren't going over the salary cap AND you aren't over the 10 bid limit.

    The 1st rule of Free Agency is to not talk about Free Agency, is it?

    what if the 3 bid rule were applied to all of FA, instead of just tendered players? would definitely add another dynamic to this whole thing. that rule made things more strategic in pre-FA.

    Be a bit tricky since trades happen and cuts happen and there's so many different people in play at any time. It's a far more fluid situation than the tagging period. Things would be very interesting though.

    assuming a computer did all the work keeping track of bid counts, would you favor the rule?
