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.

    October 14, 2019, 01:49:03 AM
  • indiansnation: i agree with brent he is good but not worth that kind of money
    October 14, 2019, 01:53:50 AM
  • Brent: He's not $40M/yr good.  they they will have 20% of their cap tied up in one position.

  • Yeagg: Honestly idk BooYah! about football. I just play fantasy football for fun
    October 14, 2019, 01:56:44 AM
  • Yeagg: I'm still trying to figure out how I have Dak Prescott, LeVeon Bell, Austin Ekeler, Phillip Lindsay, DeAndre Hopkins, Michael Thomas, Mike Williams, AJ Green, Darren Waller, Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Khalil Mack, and Blake Martinez on one of my fantasy teams and I am 3-3
    October 14, 2019, 01:59:13 AM
  • indiansnation: yeagg wait till aj green comes back he will help your team so much
    October 14, 2019, 02:01:04 AM
  • indiansnation: u got a very good team yeagg
    October 14, 2019, 02:01:28 AM
  • Brent: Same concept especially if you consider NFLC.  The NFL salary cap is the same as our $188.2M year.  The difference is RL football you have to pay offensive lineman and most teams carry 6-8 with left tackle being about the highest paid non QB position.  That was until recently, but they still get paid.  So if you pay your QB $40M/yr, your LT $15M/yr and the rest of your line a total of about $25-35M year, that could be $90M on 6-7 players.  You still have to field all of your skill positions and defense for the other $100M.

  • Yeagg: I should be better than a .500 team
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:00 AM

    October 14, 2019, 02:02:36 AM
  • Yeagg: Isn't that where drafting comes in handy
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:49 AM
  • Brent: Exactly
    October 14, 2019, 02:03:34 AM

  • indiansnation: i think its harder guessing what yound guys will produce in nfl than baseball
    October 14, 2019, 02:05:31 AM
  • Brent: The Cowboys got lucky with La'ell Colllins.  He was 1st round talent, but fell out of the draft to UDFA due to false allegations that he was cleared of. So they got one of if not the best OT from that draft for peanuts.  Eventually he will need to be paid.
    October 14, 2019, 02:06:28 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, the draft is huge and also hitting on UDFAs.  Teams have to develop and then keep their own talent or they'll go broke and end up in salary cap hell.
    October 14, 2019, 02:07:09 AM
  • Yeagg: So basically just like baseball
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:10 AM
  • indiansnation: yep nfl u gotta watch how much u pay look at browns they are going to have that problem in 2021 they have alot of good tallent thats going to need to get paid.
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:13 AM
  • Yeagg: And no way Brian. Baseball has 40 rounds and still most of those guys never even sniff the MLB
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:33 AM
  • Yeagg: More 1st round picks are bust than even play a full season
    October 14, 2019, 02:18:02 AM
  • Brent: They also have between now and then to figure out who will be resigned and who will be replaced and don't they still have quite a few 1st round picks between now and then?
    October 14, 2019, 02:24:21 AM
  • indiansnation: Hey if u have a top notch gm with a great scouting staff u can make any player u draft be great. Look at Boston their minors sick why is that because they suck at drafting. Know look at Tampa and indians and miami they have pretty dang good minors especially I diane look at who they had pitching this year bauer got traded, and they lost 2 of their sp most. Of the yr
