What I am about to describe is not a possibility, it will happen. == You will have an owner trying to acquire players to win this year and trades off auction dollars. He does not win, his team is in bad shape for next year, he has no auction dollars and quits the league. You will never find another owner to take over ther team. You would be best served to forget about trading auction dollars.
We have allowed this for almost 5 years now. It's not much of a problem with us. We've never had anyone do that.
1. You have to put a limit on how much you can trade away. For us it's 10% of our total budget.
2. We have a $20 deposit mandatory for the following year's fees if you want to trade cap for the following year.
If you are using Sportsline, I ebelieve you can work around the issue. If you are using keepers, just artificially increase or decrease ont of the keeprs values from each team to adjust each team as needed, and then adjust their price after the draft to get them back to their normal price. If you aren't, I believe you can pause the draft when ever you want as an admin and adjust a players value. You can do that as each team drafts their first players to artifically get them to their actual balance. Just record their actual auction price seperately and then adjust them back after the draft is over.
