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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
