Well spotted, indeed he is. (@Scylla: maybe you can prove otherwise, but I've just done the math and it's pretty obvious.)

For now I will not retract any bids. Scylla is hereby forbidden from bidding until he is back within his budget. If nobody overbids and he signs them all, only then the Cancellara bid will be retracted and the clock reset.

Also, a warning to Scylla for this unfair move. First warning has no consequences, it can happen to anybody. Second warning equals a penalty.

Sorry about the late bid, does that mean I have De Gendt then? was worried with him still being on the list, which is why i bid on Gatto, as wasnt sure if his deadline had past

As long as i get Gatto, no problem for me.

For bidding only the time of the last bid matter.
Garfield (and his helper(s) if he has any) can't move all finished transactions just after the end of the bidding......

Holy sh*t.
OK, it doesn't sound as bad as I thought at first, but cyclists really are an endangered species. Tell me of one other sport where competitors risk their life and well-being regularly while training...

Bridge. But that's because I cycle to all my tournaments :P

Anyway, indeed sounds better now. I prolly shouldn't have started reading last night's press from the Sun - "happy to be alive" and "waited 15 long minutes for an ambulance" is how they started of course...

at least skiing :)
but in fact they are a lot like all motor sports or extreme sports.

then if you remeber the video of the bike of cancellara with the supposed motor, then you get the conclusion : cycling is an extreme motor sport  :rofl:

But alpine skiers don't have snowmobiles and half-track crash into them on a regular basis...
And one could discuss whether motor sports are indeed sports. Takes a huge deal of concentration etc., but physically not as much as cycling (OK, which sport does?). And even if it were counted as a sport, they don't have fighter jets crash into them while training.

@Garfield, that's what you get for reading the Sun. There's a simple solution: Don't read it.

    Today at 12:47:29 AM
  • Corey: agreed Jp
    Today at 12:47:35 AM
  • Jpsprague10: he is listed as pe arb, while not exceeding rookie limits until 2013. If anything, i would call it a nice find and congrats.

  • Ace: here's my solution to draft picks who mess everything up by signing major league deals ;-)
    Today at 12:52:56 AM
  • Ace: length=greater of our spec and real life
    Today at 12:53:16 AM
  • Ace: money=greater of our spec and real life
    Today at 12:53:30 AM
  • Ace: where salary not listed use our spec of 600k
    Today at 12:54:00 AM
  • Corey: In our other start up leagues, any player on a real life deal is not eligible for a P deal
    Today at 12:58:06 AM
  • Ace: but a draft pick ml deal is very different to an int prospect deal
    Today at 12:58:52 AM
  • Corey: I agree with that but we do it for simplicity sake
    Today at 01:00:10 AM
  • irbwilleo: :Texas: open in NCA Champs
    Today at 01:00:24 AM
  • Corey: Im ok with proceeding this way
    Today at 01:00:41 AM
  • Corey: We could just make them P-? with the ? being the expiring yr of there deal
    Today at 01:02:02 AM
  • Ace: maybe; i guess i don't like guys needing to be extended before they've appeared in the majors or with just a couple of months of service time
    Today at 01:06:44 AM

  • Brent: Nice pick Brenton.
    Today at 02:26:27 AM
  • Geoff: Kicked Embiid around myself....not sure I was ready to wait 2-3 seasons for him to be relevant.  I think they are going to be REALLY careful with that injury....

  • irbwilleo: Little early probably
    Today at 02:28:50 AM
  • irbwilleo: I really wanted Noel, and when he was gone, figured I would go for it
    Today at 02:29:17 AM
  • irbwilleo: Not gonna take someone like Duncan here
    Today at 02:29:36 AM
  • Brent: I had to look at a few guys before I picked, but decided to go with Morris.
    Today at 02:29:52 AM
  • Geoff: Can't decide if my team is good enough to take Duncan anytime soon... lol
    Today at 02:30:24 AM
  • irbwilleo: Haha, yea mine isn't...
    Today at 02:31:19 AM
  • Geoff: Pretty sure mine isn't either.  If I had a 70ppg anchor like Durant, it may be a different story...
    Today at 02:32:31 AM
  • scottnva: i hope Dirk has a cpuple good yrs left!
    Today at 02:34:34 AM
  • irbwilleo: I love my gaurds with Lowry and cp3, but horford and Embiid are injury concerns
    Today at 02:35:16 AM
  • Brent: I like my team so far.  There are guys I would've liked to have drafted, but it didn't work out.
    Today at 02:35:50 AM
  • irbwilleo: Smoking Gun, I was gonna take Teague next time around Geoff!
    Today at 02:36:21 AM
  • Geoff: Me too, Brent.  I feel sometimes like guys are drafting right down my list.  I think I have gone upside with most of these picks, except maybe David Lee.  Teague could make a huge jump this year, but we will see.
    Today at 02:38:01 AM
  • scottnva: be interesting  to see how my team turns out
    Today at 02:39:01 AM
  • Geoff: I'm hoping Lebron makes Kyrie Irving that much better.  We'll see, because it could really go either way.
    Today at 02:39:46 AM
