    How To Sign A Free Agent

    Thread Title:
    Free Agent's Name - Position - Overall Rating

    On the thread, people post your bid. A bid is simply how many points you want to wager on that certain player. See the Salary Cap for Minimum Bids per overall. No nonsense posts, just numbers. 24 hours after the final bid is posted the winning team is announced, the team may sign that player, and the thread is closed.

    MINIMUM BID IS WHAT THEIR OVERALL REQUIRES! You can't bid 3 points on a player rated 71.


    NO EDITING POST IN THIS FORUM PLEASE. All post edited in this forum will be removed, including bids. It is too easy to put a high high first bid and then edit it later to something lower after its a page behind everything else.


    EX:
    Yancy Thigpen WR
    Ravens bid 25 points

    Saints bid 28 points

    Ravens bid 35 points.

    24 hours later no one post another bid that is higher, then the Ravens win the bid, and Thigpen now cost 35 points towards the salary cap.

    If you have any questions, PM a rules committee member.

    You bid on free agents by making a thread and posting your bid amount. If no more bids are made on that player within a 24 hour period, that player is won.

    If you win free agents for more points than you have cap space, you have to do what it takes to find cap space. If that means you have to cut a star to get under the cap, then so be it. If you can't, you will be penalized and the player will be awarded to the next highest bidder.

    The next highest bidder won't have to pay their highest bid. Only the highest bid that they made against another team (not the one that couldn't reach his cap).

    So if the Falcons bid 10.

    Cowboys bid 20

    Chargers bid 30

    Cowboys bid 40

    Chargers bid 50.

    If the Chargers can't manage the 50, the Cowboys would get the player for 20, not 40.

    Please make sure you can manage the bids you are making.

    FREE AGENTS PLEASE READ 10.8.09

    The Free Agency Period HAS NOT begun yet. A post will be made shortly as to when you can start bidding on players and the rules entailed. Until then players can be dropped and then posted on your teams front office page. I have deleted the threads that were already started bidding on players.

    One question about that, this example

    Thigpen

    Ravens bid 15

    Saints bid 20

    Dolphins bid 25

    Dolphins win, now if they have the cap room to sign him with the bid, will it still count as 25 points against his 330 cap? Or is it just the bidding number that has to be under the cap.

    What I'm saying is if Thigpen went for 25 points will he count against the real cap for 25 points and his rating is only a 70? When a 95+ overrall rating is only worth 15?

    Yes, I believe he will count 25 pts. The question is after the season is over how much will he count, 25 or the equivalent of his overall rating?

    he will count for how many points you win him for as long as he is on your roster. If you win a player for 30 pts then he will be worth 30 forever unless you cut him (then you take a cap hit of his overall for 1 season) or trade him (then again you take a cap hit of his overall for 1 season). He will be worth his overall when cut and when traded on his new team or in free agency.
