    Explanation of systems:

    Old System - This is the system we've used for 2 seasons now. Its slow, and takes some extra work on my part but it is effective and its what we've used. It prevents other owners from seeing your bids so there is a "silent" and thus strategic part of bidding.

    New System - This is a system I've used in leagues in the past. Essentially we would open bidding and if you wanted to bid on a player you would create a thread with a subject that looks something like below.

    Ex: QB - Tim Tebow - 78ovr

    In the thread you would then start the bidding. So say 6$/4$ or whatever. Other owners would use your thread to send counter offers etc. Since each post is timestamped, I can use that as a reference - once a player has not been bidded on for 24 hours, that player is awarded to the highest bidder and I will lock the thread.

    I need you guys to vote on what you prefer to use. If you have questions, please ask them before you vote.

    Definitely looking like we will be going with a new system.

    Are you thinking of just doing it so once a player goes like 12 hours without a bid he is signed? Good thing about open is FA can go faster.
