    Blind Bidding Free Agency begins TONIGHT at 12 midnight central time.

    Here's how it works: A team wants a free agent, they start the post in the waiver wire forum, like normal free agency.

    Title: NAME- POSITION- OVERALL

    Do Not Put Claim Number In Forum Post

    Only "Team Has Made Claim"

    If another team wants to bid on this same free agent, then they just post in the same thread as well.

    Then send an email to this address: omflblindbids@gmail.com

    This email must be properly worded or the bod will be void.

    EMAIL SUBJECT: TEAM NAME- PLAYER NAME- POSITION- OVERALL

    In the email: (TEAM NAME) PLACES CLAIM TAG #/5 (1 is Highest Tag)
    for $ salary + $ bonus X # modifier = $total offer

    This player is then up for bid from 24 hours from the time that the initial post is started. 24 hours. 1 shot. Make it or break it. No top 3 rebids as we have done in year's past. So if you see 12 owners going for a guy you want, better bring some cash and your top claim tag or go for somebody else.

    Now, there WILL be rebids if we have a tie. But here are the three tiebreakers:

    1. Base salary - whoever has the higher offer in base salary will win the FA.
    2. Bonus - whoever has the higher bonus offer will win the FA
    3. Claim tag - higher claim tag gets player.

    If all 3 of these categories are tied, those owners will be allowed rebids. And, as with previous years, no going lower. Can only stand pat or go up.

    absolutely true, not doing so properly will be grounds for a revoked bid

    one other reminder:


    do not put the claim tag number in the post so others can see, only put the claim tag number in the email

    Do we get any claim tags back if we don't win our original bids after 24 hours? I would guess not but just asking.
