      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

2014 Forum Mock: Free Agency (LB)

212 posts in this topic

Bidding on Free Agents:

If you win the bid you add that FA to your roster as of the 2014 season, don’t worry about the future.

Every GM has an idea on who they want and divvy up their budget according to this.

§ Team Name

§ Free Agent

§ Bid (# of stars)

***You can NOT bid on players if you do not have the free cap space available***

-You MUST create cap space first (by trading and/or cutting)

That’s for the first bid. Then if another team comes in and wants to bid, make sure and read through the thread, quote the highest bid so far (if its a player already bid on) and make sure and post a bid higher. If the first team wants to counter bid, again quote the post (continue to use format above, Team name, Free agent, and stars bid).

We don’t want people not looking for the highest bid and then bidding 6 mil for say Jake Long, when someone has already bid 8.

So rules

Place ALL bids in the following format:

Team Name

Free Agent

Bid (# of Stars)


Absolutely NO discussions in this thread until the bidding period has ended

Search for the leading bidder, quote their bid, and outbid them

Teams can bid any amount on a player, but only in increments of 0.5 Stars

Always quote the previous highest bid until the last 5 minutes

Editing or deleting of posts is NOT permitted, and has a significant penalty. You will not be allowed to make anymore bids for that position group if you edit/delete a bid.

You can start the bidding at any price, the lowest value being 0.5 Stars

Bid based on what you wish to pay for the 2014 base salary only (No signing bonuses)

If a signed player is cut, the team eats half of his salary (Unless the salary was 0.5 Stars, there is no cap hit).

During the Final Five Minutes of Free Agency:

At the final 5 minute mark, Berad will post, "FINAL FIVE MINUTES," so that we have a clear divide. If Berad cannot be online for whatever reason, please PM someone another active member. If Mt. Crushmore is online, PM him first. When the time is up, the person in charge of ending the bidding, whether that be berad or his appointed replacement will posts, "Bidding Is OVER." This member and this member ONLY is responsible for doing so. Therefore only this member's time is official.

IMPORTANT: ONLY in the final 5 minutes, you do not have to quote the previous bid and only the highest bid on a certain player will count at the end.

Any member who was the bid leader before the FINAL FIVE MINUTES post and is outbid in that time frame will have a chance to bid again on the said player. In order to do so, they proclaim so from 7:00 EST until 7:05 EST in THIS thread, by posting something along the lines of:

Team Name

Free Agent

I wish to bid again

At 7:05 EST, the member in charge of the time keeping will post, "Final Five Is OVER."

He will then PM the GMs involved. They will reply with the absolute highest bid that they are willing to pay for said player. Both GMs have only ONE chance, and the highest bid wins. In the event of a tie, they will receive a PM informing them of the event, and allowing them of another bid until the tie has ended

This does NOT apply when the FIRST and ONLY bid was made in the final five minutes.


1. Berad or the presiding commissioner posts, "FINAL FIVE MINUTES."

2. At 7:00 EST, said member posts, "Bidding Is OVER."

3. From 7:00 EST to 7:05 EST, any GM who was winning prior to 5 minutes left and was outbid in that time frame can request for another chance to bid for that player.

4. At 7:05 EST, the presiding member posts, "Final Five Is OVER."

5. This member then PMs both GMs, who will reply with the highest bid they are prepared to go. Unless in the event of a tie, only ONE bid is permitted. Winner receives the contractual rights to the player.
