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.

Which means now Garfield has to figure out whether your last five bids are invalid and don't count, or whether to just let itself sort out (since at this early stage it's likely that you'll get over-bid on several riders anyway.)

Either way, please pay more attention to this in the future.

(Edit: and while I didn't count, since your remaining budget is only 1.6M, it's quite likely that you're over that limit as well)

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 BooYah!  right now, so I'm going to end my rant.  :bla: I apologize.

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.

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 ;)
