    Yesh, it's daily lineups.

    WhOoOoOoOoOoOoooOoOo opening night.
    Good luck this season boys.

    P.S. I don't love the waiver bidding system.
    There's no reason why anyone would bid more than $1 on a player, making it kinda irrelevant.

    Is there a way we can make other bids visible? Like a silent auction kinda thing for 24 hours after the first bid?
    Or an option to bid "to a max bid" or something? Like you bid $10, but if no one else bids, then you only get charged $1. If someone else bids a max of $5, then you get charged $6, etc.

    I don't see any situation where anyone wouldn't bid $1 for a player, since we don't know if anyone else is targeting him. So if everyone bids $1, I assume the tiebreaker is the old waiver priority system, making all this moot.

    Just my 2 cents.

    If it is just a crap player that no one else wants, just bid $0 and it is like the old system, and you don't lose your waiver dollars.

    The system is designed for more attractive FAs that other teams will go after. Say an under-the-radar rookie starts performing above expectations, like Markieff Morris last year. A few people go after him. You might want to bid more than $1 to ensure you get him. Another example: last year Gibby and I picked up Steve Blake on a Sunday multiple times for the extra assists - now, who gets him won't depend on waiver order, but on bids. If you really want those extra assists, you better put in a higher bid or you might not get him.

    I don't think there is a way to change the silent bidding system. That is the point of the whole thing. I did a whole spiel on it a few pages back when swoop asked about it. Go back and read if you want to further understand the rationale behind it.

    Yeah...on the acquisition page it says you must place a bid between $0-100. I've never done it, but I noticed that greg picked up a player without losing any waiver $, so I put 2 and 2 together...

    I'm sure you're getting used to it by now.

    I haven't been paying attention much so dont know what is going on with my team. Will pay attention next week when I have regular internet access. Hopefully nothing serious happens until then.

    Guys - if you don't know already, you can check out the other bids placed on an awarded player by going to the recent transactions and clicking 'view all' and then the 'FAAB Bids' tab. Draco beat out Bob for Al-Farouq Aminu!
