    Discussion: World Cup Reward 'free look'

    We have received nothing but negative feedback on this in the thread I posted in the main forum.

    I suggest we come up with some alternate reward that won't mess with the blind bid system (because that went so well last year!).

    Ideas??? Or should we just keep it the same and not listen to the majority?? (That sounds sarcasitc, but its not I mean maybe we should just leave it in if the board wants to overrule the majority of the league....either way its not a big deal to me)

    I agree to change it, maybe something like the winner gets 2 free looks or runner up gets 1.

    Or something else.

    Free looks to all participants is crazy, as most will play.

    I didn't want to agree with them outside of the board room, but I don't like the winner getting a free look either. I don't think we should keep it the same. The blind bidding was alot of fun last year as is. I see no reason to change it at all.

    Great idea...

    But might be a bit our of our budget. That alone would take away a quarter of our available funds for the year.

    Intriguing. But I'd hate to run out of funds before next summer.

    Very intriguing tho!

    I dont like the sneak peek either, even if its only one or two people.

    We could pay the winners yearly TF membership but that wouldnt help those lifetime subscribers.

    Maybe just let winning team have the privelege of winning ONE FA in Madden 11 year one at the minimum. they name the FA they want and they get him at minimum with no bidding war.

    You must give something to EVERYONE in order to get them to play, or no one will play.

    giving something to the winner won't do it, some guys (like myself) know I will never win it all.

    no way guys. i mean the idea is great, but then you get into teams quitting, swapping, thats just too much. you can't mess with the cap, that's way more unfair than just 1 free look at a fa. I really don't get what the big deal is.

    Lets discuss the free look further.

    At what point does the owner get to peek?

    he can choose whenever he wants. he ask for a free look and he gets told what is there at that exact moment.

    I would be willing to go with the free look, only if you have to notify everybody in the FA thread when you are using it.

    I still am with Gaddy here (odd I know) in that we shouldn't mess with something that worked so well lat year. But as long as you have to notify the other bidders when you are ussing your free look i think the harm will be minimized.

    I like that idea better. We have 2/3 the league already signed up. This was supposed to be a year round madden league....you've been very clear about that nate ;) I don't think they should be too suprised!
