    48 hour rule penalty

    I know we have a warning system in place for not signing players within 48 hours. With our recent change to the free agency cap hit for cuts, though, we may cause people to just "forget" to sign players and try to sign the player for cheaper (Braylon Edwards comes to mind quickly, as well as Aaron Ross).

    What I propose as a penalty for the 48 hour rule is that the owner takes a cap hit equal to the overall value minimum of the player signed.

    Example: I win the bid for Antonio Bryant, 86 overall (8 points I think normally). I win the bid for 35 points (which I did lol). I want to see if I can maybe get him cheaper, so I wait 48 hours and "lose" my rights to him. Under current rules, all I get is a warning. No offense, but no biggie.

    My idea would add an 8 point cap hit to my book for failing to sign a guy I won via bid.

    I think 48 hours is enough time, but if this seems too short for such a severe penalty, then lengthen the time to sign a player to 72 hours (3 days is enough time I think), but after 72 hours if the player isn't signed, a cap hit of the player's overall value minimum is taken.

    Make sense? I throw that to a debate. :)

    I like the idea, but I think we need to tweak it a bit.

    If I win CB- Ross for 45 points, I could just wait 72 hours and then take an 8 point cap hit. Presumably by then all the teams would have run out of room to bid on him, so I could use that strategy to just cut him loose then sign him for cheaper as nobody will have the cap space.

    I dunno, maybe I worry too much. But if I can see the loophole then I know others will.

    I'd say we just force anybody you 'sign' to be on your roster (commish does it if you don't). Period, end of discussion. If you want to release them, you take a cap hit as described in the new rules.

    I think you should take the cap hit winuvas declared and your are no longer allowed to bid on that player for that year.

    i would be fine with that. i'd need help staying on top of it, but we can say after 48 hours we will do the releasing and signing ourselves.

    Also, Nate, about this admin thing....

    I noticed you have added to the original title of threads the team that won and points. I apparently am ignorant and have yet to figure out how to do it.

    Care to tell me? I locked two bids and would have added winner and points but couldn't figure out how. Me dumb guy. :)

    I have thought all along that any player won in FA HAD to be signed or you take penalty per our FA rules..IMO, this is the best way. Zero tolerance and keeps the door for people cheating the system shut..
