Pro cycling org, you have bids out on 30 players at the moment. Plus your five keepers, which means you're in breach of the rules.
Not so pro after all, eh? Thanks a lot for the sharp eye, it's impossible for me to control all these things.
I'll try to talk some sense into the guy.
For now, I propose:
1) strike 1 for him, and of course no bids until both his budget and team size allow it,
2) let's hope enough of these get overbid, and thus we won't have to retract any bids (that's usually Pandora's box).

You may give Geezar10 his strike1 as well.
His bids in total are way to high for his budget.
I haven't counted it in total, but his buget was:
5000K - 2320K (salary) = 2680 left voor biddings and contracts.

His bids in total are now 7240K!!!!!!
Even if you divide this by 2 (everyone 2 years contract, what is in fact impossible), then he has 3620K this year. So his biddings are more then 1000K over is budget. Seems to me that this is way to ridiculous.

Oh sorry about that I think I am taking Vinokourov out of my keepers and maybe Bozic but I haven't posted it yet should I post it onto the sign up sheet to let people know or PM Garfield + how do we know what riders people have picked for their keepers if they didn't sign up via the sign up sheet, please could I be told where to find these. Thanks.

New keepers via PM ASAP.
All keepers can be found in the official rosters.

Small heads up: we've been bidding on Van Garderen, who's a keeper for BMC.

That roster has been changed.
When are the rosters final, because you can make a goal in buying a cyclist, but when the rosters keep changing, then you can't play any tactics and there is no checking someones budget.

For Geezar10: even if you chose not to put Vinokourov in your roster, then you are still over your budget now ;)

I'm sorry, but I lost my patience. From now on I will ignore questions that you wouldn't need to ask if only you had read the SINGLE introductory PM I sent out to everybody.

Lol come on, your beef is obviously with me?
People place to many bids, go way, way, way over budget. But I ask simple question that is not written on this forum and I get comment like this??? Seems very fair.

With all reason, yes I read 48 hours, but from which point? 07.14 pm? That is when the pm came in.
Trust me, at least 2 other managers here didn't know the answer to the question about when the 48 hours were over, but I asked the question here. I will let them ask next time, you obviously got problems with me, while I only want to make things clear.
Your irritation towards me probably also got to do with the fact that I told others that they were over there budget. Well excuse me if I try to keep this game by the rules, if you are not here then someone else can tell them right?
I did notice that when Flu did it, h got thank you, when I do it, it seems to be all wrong for you.

I just tried to help and if more people are wondering when the deadline is, then it wasn't such bad question and you could also take look at yourself instead of telling me you lost your patience with me.

I don't think his problem is with you in particular, I think he is just having to deal with a lot of work with this new league. But Bos I like it when you call people out on that stuff, because someone needs to have an eye on it, and Garfield can't be here all the time. I would say keep it up.

  • Jonathan: A team that wishes to remove a player from the 40-man roster and place him in the minor league system first needs to place him on irrevocable outright waivers. The team may not pull him back if another team claims the player. Other organizations have 48 hours to make a claim.  If the organization does not specify the type of waivers, this is the default.
