Should blind-bid budgets roll over?

Postby Kareighuis » Mon Mar 14, 2011 4:56 am

Main part of discussion starts here.

Instinctive-
Instinctive wrote:I would be firmly against blind bid if we don't roll it over. It's a DYNASTY league. That means if I decide to save all $100 this year, and then everyone gets $100 more next year, I have $200. It definitely adds a layer of strategy to rebuilding, like going with young upside guys who may be down this year, but hit their stride the next season. In the same way, I can save the money this year for a big FA next year, or what have you.

It's a dynasty. Why wouldn't we roll over the money?


Stomperrob-

Top teams obviously have fewer holes to fill than their less fortunate brethren and therefore would normally have more money left to carry over to the following season. This also serves to give them enormous buying power, should some WW gem(s) hit the market.

Blind bidding is meant to give everyone a fair shot at acquiring FA's - rolling the money over to subsequent seasons defeats this purpose.


Kareighuis-
Kareighuis wrote:I agree with the idea of no roll-over. If we were to [roll over], however, we could/should put a cap on how much could be rolled over. It might be a good compromise between the rollover/no-rollover perspective, but I think it could unnecessarily complicate things.

That's agood case for rolling over but I vote no. Stomper made a great point. If 1 team is mostly inactive, and rolls over a budget for 2 seasons, now has 300$ and can dominate FA for that entire season if he so chooses. I don't like that balance.

I still would have voted Yes. That's how FA money works in Zealots, and there has never been an issue.

I can accept that. What is your reasoning?
