    LOL.
    Same here. I've never seen that fun "feature" before.






    edit:
    Actually, this is kinda BS. We've never had FA's able to refuse offers before. It's one thing to refuse an extension, but I've never experienced this in any of my other leagues either.
    Is this a box that can be turned on or off?

    I don't think it can be turned off. I see it all the time in another league, but not RANZBA. I'll check.

    Do we have personality or other traits turned on? I'm pretty sure we have intelligence and all that stuff on, right?

    I didn't know if "desire to play for a winner" affects these FA's.

    In RANZBA, I'm pretty sure everything is turned off, including work ethic/intelligence, etc.

    It's OK, Rankin wants $19,000,000 a year as a starting point, which is approximately 1/3 of someone's budget.

    I think we'll need to tweak the finances a bit. Open to suggestions.

    Well, won't the asks take care of themselves as guys get signed?

    In theory, though we shall see. The values for players will make it nearly impossible to resign anyone of value without gutting your team, so FA becomes fairly important under that theory.

    So trading my first round pick to Gomer for a reliever was a good idea?

    I wouldn't necessarily "juice up" the draft class next year, but when the last guy drafted in the first round is only rated 1.5 stars, then the class should probably be re-generated.

    My feeling is everybody should be able to draft a 3 star guy in the first round.

    In this class, there are only 21 guys rated 3+ stars.
    And only 7 guys rated 4+ stars. A top-10 pick should at least guarantee you a 4+ star guy, but it doesn't here.

    Same thing happened last draft until you did a do-over.

    This is a pretty good standard.
