The biggest FAIL in this thread continues to be that tufft thinks that HBD free agency would benefit from proxy bidding.
The second biggest FAIL in this thread is that tufft thinks that people are leaving HBD because of the way the free agency process currently works.
You dug yourself so deep into 1 or 2 details you can't seem to pull out and see the bigger issue.
And the way you word this - "HBD free agency would benefit..." seems to indicate that you, too, care more about the pretend baseball players making the most pretend money than the real humans playing the game.
We disagree that people leave HBD because of how much time it takes to play to compete. My opinion is based on what I've been told & my experience. I don't know what your opinion is based on.
Both Mike & I are on the record (seems we agree on some things) that we don't bother to invite our baseball friends (real baseball, fantasy baseball, etc.) to play HBD because it takes a lot of time. There are other reasons, but that's high on the list.
The FA process is not the one & only reason people are leaving HBD. I never said that. Like Mike, you're starting to make up **** nobody said and argue against it.
FA bidding one of several aspects of game that could be changed to require less time to compete. In any change some things will be lost and some will be gained. Maybe there would be a little less strategy with a different system. Maybe a little more. Certainly some different strategies. IMO, all good tradeoffs if it took less time & didn't require logging in every 4-6 hours, even if nothing happened.
We're done here, right? You disagree with my main point - HBD is loosing players & doesn't have a good system to deal with that - and with what I've proposed as a partial solution - Change the FA system. Can we call it? I'll say you won, if that makes you happy.
