Bump!

Bump again.

Pulled the trigger on an IFA at game 108 because I knew three owners(who I don't think we bidding on this particular IFA) could outbid me.   The owner who I suspect was bidding was going to fall about half a mil short. 

I shouldn't have this info.

OK, since I don't think you should complain unless you have a solution, here you go.  

This page needs to go away.  http://www.whatifsports.com/HBD/Pages/World/BudgetAnalysis.aspx

The ONLY thing that should be shown, if you don't want to zap the page, is the league averages at the bottom.    The money actually spent, on the team page, is fine if we don't know how much one CAN spend.

Also, as an added bonus, those of us who zero out ADV, will no longer be able to tell how much a team spends on domestic scouting when considering a trade for one of their youngsters.   IOW, if an owner spends 0 on college and drafts a 20 y/o that he's trying to deal to me in his 2nd season, I know he has no idea if that player was good at draft time.

Damn.  Just realized this is a completely different issue.     This needs to go away during FA:

Payroll Budget Old * New *
Season 23 $83,000,000 $82,902,986 $82,902,986
Season 24 $66,400,000 $53,928,333 $53,928,333
Season 25 $58,100,000 $43,883,333 $43,883,333
Season 26 $49,800,000 $13,500,000 $13,500,000
Season 27 $41,500,000 $8,500,000 $8,500,000
* Includes Player Payroll Offered in Negotiations.


The bolded, italicized, underlined part is the problem.

Bump again.  One of the posters in this thread asked me for the finer points.  Then lowered his bid by 4m.  

Seems like this is an easy fix.

How'd I know this would reappear???

Even having now figured it out, I still don't get that "dirty" feeling I would get with accepting a trade out of balance, or not trying every single thing to make a team better. I take it for granted that less information is never the answer, but rather expose it all  to the light of day. Put all the FA total bids on the league board, team by team, have it go up and down like the stock market big board, and let everybody hash it out. That might be pretty amusing.

And don't make the signing cycles predictable. Same with coaches. If you have a few sign every half-cycle, owners would have to get their best bids out there right off.

I see TZ posted at one point. I wonder if he works at WIS any more.
5/15/2012 4:21 PM
I don't feel bad for doing it but I shouldn't be able to.    The simple fix is to X-out the salaries on the trade screen during FA.   If I make an offer that exceeds their payroll, they are welcome to tell me how much I have to work with.  If they don't want to, we can wait or not trade.

Bump again.

Another situation.  First big IFA on the market during ST.   I've got 20m and 18m in cap space to transfer.   However, I know EXACTLY who else is bidding and how much they have to transfer(or already have transferred).    I can't match them so I didn't transfer thus leaving my option open to increase payroll.

FIX THIS.
