So I run a slow auction, usually theres a max of 35 players up for bid at a time (16 teams) and the timer is set for 1 day. We use proxy bids and the timer does not reset after higher bidder changes which leads to sniping. Some of the owners are frustrated by the sniping and I said I would look into adjusting it.
Option 1 would be to set the timer to reset after higher bidder is changed but this would cause some players to be up for bid for days, something that I already know members won't like
Option 2 would be to adjust timer to 12 hrs instead of 1 day and reset after higher bidder change, problem is we have a rule that a player can't come off the board starting at 12 am ET - 10 am ET to prevent people sneaking players off while the league sleeps.
Was thinking of trying to set it to Live auction where it runs for a day but after looking it over I'm sure it wouldn't work well.
It seems every TE that gets threatened with the franchise tag can make the same argument, (I'm not a TE I'm a big WR). And I bet the numbers will show that most starting TEs either line up in the slot or run a route instead of inline block. I remember F Davis and Clark got Tagged but I don't remember if they fought it. Davis was pretty much out the door in Wash anyway and I think Clark didn't want to rock the boat too much; but now Graham and Pitta are coming up and they are pretty much just big WRs. This is going to big IMO, if these 2 can get declared as WR Tags instead of TE Tags I think it'll pretty much be the end of the TE Tag.
