Lol come on, your beef is obviously with me?

Trust me, it's nothing personal.

I do appreciate it when you point out problems.
As I would with any other person.

I don't appreciate it when you don't read the effing PM and keep breaching the etiquette.
As I would with any other person.

And that probably would not happen if he weren't bidding on every single rider that I post. I don't care if someone bid on my guys, because you are supposed to, but when one person bids on 15 of them in a row (especially the low-wage team-fillers) without starting any of their own auctions, it is very annoying.

Maybe I'm just crazy, but there are around 500 ProTour cyclists, I don't see why each and every one of them has to go for 100,000.

I probably sound like a little gonzaga right now, so I'm going to end my rant.  :bla: I apologize.

Exactly what I was thinking. Search for your own crappy riders and leave mine alone :P

Since we're whining already :P
What should I say?
Bid 30k on a bunch of useless Polish guys who will never score a single point, thus strictly for sentimental value.
Got overbid on all.
Somebody hug me!

Really didn't think Van Impe would go that high  :thumbsup: It's outside the budget I've set myself. haha

I think people just get ebay-excited :beer:

Btw I have updated the etiquette with a couple of tips how to control your bids.

Just like to point out Garfield that I would assume you are a) over budget and b) have bids on over 25 riders. Just saying if you're handing out strikes willy-nilly you could easily give one to yourself to keep things fair.

He has bids on 7 riders. 8 if you count the Basso-example. The locked ones at the bottom are placeholder-bids for someone else.

As for budget, yes he's over if you do the straight up sum, but he's not over budget if you split the bids which can be split over two seasons.

Being the one who has the high bid on Van Impe... :)
Yeah, it's higher than I expected as well, but pretty much everyone is going higher than I expected. And since I'm running Lotto, I'm willing to go a little bit above and beyond the call of duty for Belgian riders.  :toth:

Edit:
another keeper auction popped up: Anthony Roux.

- Where and when do I give the contracts? In the topic of the cyclist itself or will topic be made for that? Looks like I'm close to getting some cyclists and there was the option to raise the contract, so I could give 2 year contract if I wanted.

  • Daddy: @Brian if you need any help i volunteer my services. PM me anything you need help with. Youve always been there for me.
    Today at 01:20:46 AM
  • 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.

  • Jonathan: rules are clearly written. You have to read them.
