Agents vs GMs
« on: October 16, 2018, 12:55:25 PM »
I am looking at resurrecting the Agents vs GMs concept.  The concept is that the auction style bidding system is replaced with negotiations between a player acting as a GM on behalf of a team and a player acting as an agent on behalf of the player.  There will be a GM winner based on a H2H league format with an Agent winner based on the success of signing his players to lucrative deals.

I am still working on the details, but here are some of the details, so far:
  • Free league
  • 30 team H2H league
  • Flexibility in # of agencies
  • Contracts that reflect MLB including options & no trade clause - if you can negotiate it...
  • 35 man MILB
  • Snag a favorite veteran player on a Minor league contract and catch lightning in a bottle!
  • Negotiate your favorite players contracts starting in arbitration...can you keep him happy?
If you would be interested in this concept, post your interest here.  Go ahead and include the following:

Agent or GM
What are you willing to assist with (i.e. spreadsheet or transactions, etc.)
Preference of MLB teams or your own team names
Preference of static or variable payroll cap

Also check out this discussion link for interesting rules and include your own, some of these may be incorporated...

I'm all up for this. This league goes into a different way of playing in a league. U can either control the players by negotiating the players contracts or being that one great gm and trying to build that team by negotiating and bholding that winning team for your franchise

Negotiations should be the best choice.

What's more needed at this point, Agents or GMs?

  • Daddy: Because its a matter of public record, the oldest leading man to star in a porn will soon be viewed by millions. TMZ is offering a staggering amount to be the first to expose Kraft and his real mayonnaise to an eagerly awaiting public. In any event....its coming soon to a device near you.
