Seems like you're a rush-to-judgement type of guy.

I predicted that a lot of good values would be early in the auction (like in EVERY auction I have been to in real life) and that the ridiculous high bids would come in the latter half of the draft (like in real life, as it did indeed in the auction game too) and that by bidding early I would know sooner rather than later what I really need as the cap got closer and options fewer, buying more time later in the draft to get the final pieces of the puzzle (where necessary). As it turned out, I got everything I needed by Day 3, surprised as I was with two or three of my bids that weren't topped on that Day 3, allowing me to finish the roster, which was a fine, value-worthy squad I worked hard and early to make cap-compliant and competitive. I have run a business in real life so if by 'fly-by-the-pants type' you imply irresponsibility then you are mistaken. That said, I like the thrill of the chase and will hunt down easy prey, shaking the bushes and taking a bird in the hand rather than two in the bush.

Live and let live. There are many different ways to build a team. I will finish the squad if I start building it, as I have before. How is none fo anyone's business but mine, eh?

24 managers and 6 commishes with 1 or 2 backup commishes so far. Great start. I'd like to hit 30 but if not this is still a great group.

What would stop someone from making a max offer on a superstar right when the bidding starts?

They're welcome to, but anyone that bids 20 mil on one player has to scrounge a team together with what is left.

It's a stupid team building decision, frankly.

That's not really my point. One of the most fun things about this game is how prices go up and up on star players, and making a max bid right off the bat would kind of ruin the fun of the game.

Add to this that say three people all submit simultaneous max bids for a player, who does that player go to? No max allows for more strategy and makes it easier for the mods
