Discrepancy in Rules [BoS]

Post by Johnny B on Mon Mar 09, 2015 5:56 pm

I put in BOLD RED UNDERLINE the discrepancy. Im guessing there was an updating that may have been missed?

6-1. Unrestricted Free Agency
About Free Agency: To sign a player, a bid must be placed on the player in the forum. The minimum bid is based on contract length (see "Contract Length/Minimum Salary Scale)". All other teams are free to place a higher bid on that player. You can bid on free agents while your roster is full, but you must make room once the bid is won. There is no limit to how many free agents a team can sign during a season as long as there is enough money to pay the player for all future seasons.
Eligibility: Any player that is affiliated with a MLB club (majors or minors). During the regular season, teams cannot sign players that have been selected in the current season’s MLB draft. Those players will be in the rookie draft. (Amended 2013) A player must be in yahoo or on a MLB team's 25 man in order to be signed during the season or FA. Otherwise, gotta wait til the draft.
Players cannot be on the 60-Day DL, out for the season, or have an injury report of 8 or more weeks. Basically this is saying the player cannot pass a BoS team physical and cannot be signed. Once the player has played 1 game (minors or majors) he will be eligible for free agency again (http://salarysports.forumotion.net/t5789-signing-injured-players-bos-rule).
F/A Deadline: August 18th 11:59PM ET is the transaction deadline. After the deadline, all bids will be final and awarded to the last team to post a bid. Free Agency will be closed for the remainder of the season.
Posting a Bid: When bidding, you must post the players name, team, position, and a [FA] in the "Title of the topic". Post the length of contract, total of contract, contract structure, if you’re offering a club option, and the number of bids your team has remaining to use in free agency. Teams must use the "Free Agent Template" on the forum.
Bidding System: When bidding on a posted f/a, teams will have a maximum of 3 bids. The original post or illegal bids do not count as bids.
Bidding Equal Years:
When bidding under $10M per season: A bid may be a minimum of a 10% increase of the Avg salary. If the bid is under $1M per season, 2 of the 3 bids will be charged.
When bidding $10M per season or more: The bid must be a minimum of $1M per season more. 1 bid will be charged.
Adding Year(s): When adding years to a contract the players avg salary per season can drop up to (but not more than) 10%.
Reducing Years: Teams can reduce a Max of 2 years off the current bid. Teams can match the current total contract with less years or use the following formula:
When reducing the current bid by 1 year, the players avg salary per year must increase 60% or more.
When reducing the current bid by 2 years, the players avg salary per year must increase 75% or more.
Bidding w/Club Options: If a bid is posted with no club option offered, teams cannot match the contract posted and use a club option to outbid.
Illegal Bids: If a bid closes and the closing bid is illegal, the team with the last legal bid has the option to either take the player at the bid, or pass on the player. If the team chooses to pass, that team cannot bid on the player for 21 days and the player becomes a free agent again. Amendment 3/13/14 (loophole): Illagal Bid count as 1 bid on your Bids Remaining count.
Maximum Contracts: Maximum contracts are offers of a maximum length and salary (containing no club options). If more than one team bids a Max contract, the team with the worst record is awarded the player. In the off-season and first 3 match-ups of a season, preference is determined using the previous year's standings. Players signed to a Max deal will be required to spend the first 2 full seasons with the team.
Winning a Bid: In order to win a bid a team must remain the highest bidder for 24 hours. Once a bid is won the team is responsible for that player’s contract (No exception). Teams can wait up to 72 hours if needed after a bid is won to make room for the player.
Newly Signed FA: (New 2013)
FA are required to stay on the roster until June 1st Newly Signed FA Vote

We amended to state that illegal bids go against your total.

only if somebody else bids after your illegal bid. If you catch it first and correct it in time, you're safe!
