    Placing Claims

    Just like with the current offseason setup, a team can only have 5 claim tags on players during the offseason at one time. Any team caught making more offers than they have claim tags for will be reprimanded by league leadership. To claim a player is very simple. In the free agent forum of the boards, place a message like the following:

    Subject: Position - Name - Overall
    Body: (Team) places claim tag on player

    Obviously, insert your team for the (Team) area, but don't put the claim tag number for everyone else to see
    Claim tags, once used, cannot be used again until the bidding on the player in question is closed (meaning, the team has won the player or has been officially eliminated from bidding by either a rebid announcement excluding their team or by outright winning of the player by another team).

    Sending in Bids

    After the first claim is placed, ALL teams have 24 hours to place a claim on the player, and then send an email with their offer to this email address: omflblindbid@gmail.com. A team MUST do both things to have a shot at getting the player. Bidding is done in the same fashion as the regular season, and all rules for bidding must be followed. Any owner not following bid procedures will, if possible, be warned and allowed to correct their error. Otherwise, their bid is null and void.

    In the email, the message must look like this:

    Subject: Team Name- Position - Player Name - Overall
    Body: (Team) bids (...) salary + (...) bonus x (...) modifier = (...) total offer and claim tag x/5

    Claim Tags

    Claim tags work in a similar fashion to the old OMFL offseason setup. Each team will get five (5) tags that they can place at any one time on a player. The major difference is that the claim tags will have a priority set in them. See the list below:

    • Claim tag 1/5 - highest priority
    • Claim tag 2/5 - second highest priority
    • Claim tag 3/5 - third highest priority
    • Claim tag 4/5 - fourth highest priority
    • Claim tag 5/5 - fifth highest priority

    Claim tags, once placed, cannot be retracted until the bidding for a player is over. This means that either an owner wins the player, or loses out on the player, before he can use the claim tag again.

    These priorities assigned to the tags will aid in breaking tied bids. See below for more details.

    If there are any ties, league leadership will use the following rules for tiebreakers between bids, in this order:
    • Base salary - the higher the base salary offered breaks a tie
    • Bonus - the higher the bonus offered breaks a tie if salaries are tied
    • Claim tag - the higher priority claim tag wins if both bonus and base salary are tied
    If two or more teams are tied after all tiebreakers are checked, then any teams involved in the tie bidding will be notified to resubmit a bid. All new bids must be equal to, or higher, than the previous bid. After resubmissions are done, league leadership reviews all rebids and awards the player to the team with the highest bid based on tiebreakers above.

    FOR ANY BIDS ON PLAYERS STARTED FROM THIS MOMENT FORWARD, YOU HAVE 1 HOUR TO SEND IN THE EMAIL FROM THE TIME THAT YOU POSTED IN THE FORUM; NO EMAIL COMES IN IN 1 HOUR, THEN THE BIDCLAIM IS VOIDED; ALSO IF YOU DO NOT SEND THE EMAIL WITHIN AN HOUR, THEN THE CLAIM TAG STILL STAYS WITH THAT PLAYER UNTIL THEY HAVE BEEN WON
