The rule we use is if you are replacing a DL player you can use a zero dollar bid (you must them drop the replacement when you activate the DL guy). Otherwise you have to bid something for the guy. == I like where the FAAB order never resets.

Over a 25 week season that allows an average of six $1.00 adds per week. It adds another level of strategy to the game as all bids on players are hidden until the winning bid is revealed. It also allows everyone equal opportunity to add any player in the FA pool. Our highest bid for one player last year was $60.00, but most bids fell in the $1.00 to $7.00 range.
If the option is that the tie breaker order is "never reset" then teams that have early draft picks will always have to bid more than teams who have late draft picks because they will never win a tie breaker. If the option is that it "never resets but the winner goes to the bottom of the order" then that is a fair system and does not give a permanent advantage in the bidding..
I just want the highest bid $ to get that particular player. I do not care about who did what when/where or where they drafted or what there record is. You big the highest amount for a player, you get that player. In case of ties, then the team with the most HR gets the player, or something like that.

If you, bigmck and I bid on the same player and I bid $1.00, bigmck bids $2.00 and you bid $3.00 you will get the player regardless of the FAAB order. If all three of us bid $3,00 then the tie is broken by the FAAB order with the top person winning. If the order never changes then the manager at the top of the order always has the advantage of winning every tie for the entire season. Managers at the bottom of the order must bid higher because they will seldom win tie bids. The only way to get another tie breaker is to contact customer service at CBS and request that option then wait to implement the FAAB until that option is available.
I would like the order to rotate meaning that if you win a bid, you go to the bottom for the tie breaker.
I would also like to allow $0 bids for all the scrubs you add on whim, smart or not smart to do this IYO?
You are worring too much about the Tie-Breaker Order in the FAAB. Ties don't happen that much. Normally there is a person who bids more than others and he gets the player. The fair way to set the Tie-Break order is to have it Never Reset.
