    AGAIN: IT IS CRUCIAL THAT YOU DO NOT DO ANYTHING ON THE CONSOLE AT THIS TIME. DONT MESS WITH YOUR ROSTER OR PLAY GAMES.... JUST USE XFN FOR FA BIDDING.

    We will run the bid period for 24 hours - roughly. We will be closing the first bidding period at 9pm EST tomorrow. What that means is, at 9pm I will try to close it - then the XFN will wait for an unspecified period of time (unknown even to me) - between 5 and 20 minutes - and then actually close the bidding. That way I have zero advantage. The kicker though is pretty much everyone better be available during that time as bidding will get VERY competitive, VERY quickly. Once that 9pm timeslot is passed, its on like donkey kong down to the wire. It should be fun - just be AWARE of it. 9pm is the deadline. Once 9pm bids keep your eyes peeled for new bids and your trigger finger ready to move on to plan B or C or whatever it may be.

    Now....

    Couple more things - I expect to see legitimate signing bonus' for players that demand them. The question to you all is, what is a fair number. 25% 35%? More?

    The issue is, those guys will accept just about anything once the salary gets over a certain point (at least thats my expectation). How do you HK guys get around this? Emmdotfrisk BobJr ryty32 or XLenceofXQtion

    I dont want to see guys loading up salary and excluding signing bonus' unfairly. If I could police it like I want to, I would just say you can never lower a player signing bonus. If it gets to 5 mil, you can never offer below that. But that would be difficult to police - I'm open to suggestions, however. We could try to police it that way, but bidding would no longer be allowed to be anonymous. We'd have to be able to see the high bidder then blow the whistle on them. We could make the punishment harsh like - you're no longer allow to win this player or something like that?

    I'm just trying to do whats fair. Its not fair for someone to submit a 50mil bid but only put up 1mil/yr as a bonus.

    Happy hunting.

    In XFL... we decided to take those Well paid players and make note of them... Then we adjust the signing bonus to 40% of salary... Kinda high sure. BUT this eliminates the two year 70mil contract that you cut out of next year for only 5mil cap penalty.. At 40% you are committed.

    Thats not a bad idea - easy to enforce.

    What does everyone else think?

    So even tho going through the off season and everything my DE Gilbert is still hurt for 7 weeks it says, do we not get that injury said and done? At the end of the season he was hurt for 12 weeks, so he is out for 7 weeks or is that still remain to be seen?

    Also, since Reggie Bush had a career ending injury, did it wind up carrying over out of curiousity? Especially since if my guy is hurt and keeps his injury and Bush comes back and is fine, that would really be screwed up.

    Reggie bush can be signed but he will be career even if you sign him so you will waste money if someone signs him. Also it will say he is injuried for 7 weeks but it doesnt carry over so Gilbert will be ready to play Week 1

    I saw someone had bid for Bush and thought it was kinda funny and bad for whoever put the bid in for him.
