Default SACD RFA Process - Please Read Before Bidding

With the opening of the RFA Bidding period upcoming, I thought itíd be pertinent to lay down some ground rules on how the bidding should occur, specifically on how to format bids and whatnot. Tracking bids will be much easier if everyone conforms to the formats below.

1. There is no need to enter your team name, since your user IDís automatically will list your team name and helmet next to all posts. Further the server will timestamp all posts.

2. All Initial Bids must follow the same format for the Subject LineÖ that is

Position Playerís Full name, NFL Team

for example:
RB LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego

The body of the message will contain the bid amount. You may add some commentary if you wish.

3. All subsequent bids must be within the same thread as the Initial bid. Please list your increased bid on the 1st line of the message. You may add commentary if you wish by skipping a line and then entering your message on the 3rd line.

continuing the Tomlinson example:
5250

Canít let Burt get him TOO cheap!

4. All playerís must have their OWN bidding thread.

DO NOT bid upon multiple players in 1 thread. Doing so will invalidate all bids after the initial player, further, the violating team will be prohibited upon bidding on involved players for 14 days.

5. All bids must start AT or ABOVE the tender amount.

6.Keep in mind the minimum bid increment amounts.

For bids from 100-999 the minimum bid increment is 5

For bids from 1000-1999 the minimum bid increment is 20

For bids from 2000 and up, the minimum bid increment is 50

7. Remember, RFA bidding is much different than UFA bidding. The tendering team will have the opportunity to match the winning bid, therefore donít bid too low or you could be giving a guy away to the tendering team.

8. Players will be considered SOLD if a bid is not increased within 48 hours of the last bid.

9. The tendering team will have 72 hours from the timestamp of the winning bid to match the winning bid and retain the player at the winning bid price. The match must be posted in the same thread where all the bidding occurred.

10. RFA's (whether tendered, acquired or retained) CANNOT be traded until the start of the In-Season Free Agency period, which is LATE August. Keep this in mind when bidding.

11. Have fun!

Okay, so when can we officially start to bid? For some reason I thought it was today and I expected to see a whole bunch of threads going. I will be out for the day but will try and check in again tonight to see what is happening!

I find it funny that the one RFA bid the preds started did not follow the above format.

, that's what I get for copying and pasting old instructions. We've since changed things in the Frenzy to just Position, Player Name, and Team. The salary goes way back to old CGI forms which weren't threaded like boards are today.

Even though we started a couple days late, we are still ending the bidding on April 30th, correct?

What is the date in which if your RFA's haven't been given offers, they become a part of your team again and the RFA signing period ends?

RFA Bidding closes April 30th at 11:59 this year. Any player that is still in action will remain in action until 48 hours passes from last bid. So that would be when RFA's that have not been bid on at all would revert back to the team that tagged that player.

If the player was never bid on, there is no waiting period. Which is why I said May 1st.
