salary cap

Postby denvermax » Tue Dec 28, 2004 3:17 am

For the people here that use salary caps in their leagues, what do you use for your salaries?

Right now Im trying to decide if I should use players real salaries or to get them off of a website or magazine or something like that.

Any help is greatly appreciated. :-)

the salaries come by an auction draft instead of just picking names. An auction is the only way to go in my opinion. I play in two leagues...one straight AL and one straight NL. We have in season cap of $320.

Unless Im misunderstanding your question, salaries are always set at the league auction.

We use the sum of the years all players are under contract for and then establish a cap on that figure. For keeper purposes, it's much easier than using money. If you're not doing keeper, than just ignore me because this will only work for a keeper league.
