So my problem with limiting teams to two signings is that it will be a nightmare to track. If one team has to let leading bid(s) go, then that player will add to the leading bids of the next team who might then have to let another player go that they offered on. So where is the fairest place to start that domino effect?

What I think will happen is this: I will consider only the top bids. Teams will be able to retain a maximum of two of them, with the remaining players going back for round two bidding. For players with multiple leading bids, if only one of the teams opts to keep them then that’ll be that, but if multiple teams opt to retain that player then they’ll have to send new bids, with the player signing the higher offer.

Alright this is what's happening. It's what I'm most sold on and I think provides the fairest option.

Sorry for the bungle everyone!

No worries - glad to get it all hammered out. No harm done
