I'm not leaving cbssports, to run the league, but would love to just punt on their FAAB process and do it manually. The problem is how can I do that? I need a way to have everyone enter their bids somewhere, without me seeing them until the proper time. Even though I'm honest, if everyone emails me that seeing the bids will influence my own bids.
I looked around for a web site that had something like this, I figured there must be something out there that let a group of people enter things under password to be revealed later. Didn't have to be for fantasy sports, but I could use that. (just like there are public, free dice roll sites) But so far no luck.
Any help would be appreciated.
Our blind bid rules:
- everyone starts year with $100
- can only reserve players if sent to minors or on DL
- can only pick up players on MLB active roster
- conditional bids are allowed. (pick up X for $, pick up Y for $ if I don't get X)
- must end up with a full active roster
I have had problems with conditional bids not going in the way the team owner wanted them, people picking up guys currently in the minors, someone put a bid in even though he didn't have roster space for that player, and got him.
I don't like the cbs comish interfaces for processing these bids either.
