2019-20 Free Agent Bidding Rules and Results

Post by Big M Bob » Thu Oct 10, 2019 9:00 pm

Here are the Free Agent Bidding Rules

1. Bidding closes at 6:00 pm Toronto time every Sunday

2. Bids will be made public after 6:30 PM. Nobody has access to the bids until they are made public to everybody. There is no way that I can view bids made by other teams in the admin area so I have no advantage. There is a button in the admin area for me to puch to publish the results for all to see.

3. Each team starts with 10,000 bidding units or credits. Only bids in full amounts are allowed. No cute bids like Pi 3.14159265359 are allowed.

4. Zero bids are allowed however since teams need to be able to add players to their roster even if they have used all their bidding credits.

5. In the event that two teams have bid the same amount the team with the highest tie breaking priority will win that player. Until the end of November that priority is based on last year's results so the Cheap Thieves are 1st and Big M's 20th. This won't change even if the priority it used. Starting in December we will use this year's standings as the basis for the tie breaking priority and it will change week to week with the standings. Worst record top priority and best record the lowest priority.

6. Bidding Credits are not tradeable or transferable to another team.

7. No collusion is allowed in the bidding process. You are not allowed to share your bid amounts with any other team. Table talk however is allowed. If you don't know what table talk is ask a poker player.

8. The maximum bid will be all of your credits.

9. When you bid you can bid the maximum number of units on more than one player and there will be a priority of who you want first.

example: I have 500 units available and bid 400 units on each of two different players. I get my highest priority player and that costs me 400 units. That means I only have 100 units available and that becomes my bid on the 2nd player. If I don't get my top player my bid on the 2nd player stays at 400 units.

10. There is a chat box in your bid area that you can put instructions in. For example you may bid on 5 players but only want a maximum of 2 of them. You have to put those instructions in the chat box.

11. Remember that for a player to be available to be picked up through the Fab process they must have both played an NHL regular season game before the Sunday and also be on a NHL team's active roster on Sunday. If a player plays their 1st NHL game on Sunday they can't be picked up on that Sunday. They can't be in the minors or on the injured list.

12. If you are making a zero bid please make it 0.0 which shows that you actually meant to bid that amount and it wasn't a misclick.

13. You will be able to edit or cancel your bids up until 6pm on Sunday
