Free agent deadline

Posted at 10:09 AM on January 12, 2007 by Bob Collins (4 Comments)

There are plenty of valuable free agents for both leagues available and the deadline for filing a claim is 5 p.m. this afternoon. Use the waiver claim form and if you file more than one, be sure to indicate what order you want to me choose your pick-ups and cuts.

I'll get to the waiver draft sometime on Saturday and update the site accordingly.

Remember, although there are points assigned to everyone on the free agent list, you don't get those points when you pick up a free agent. You get the points he/she accumulates for your team starting with any legislative action at 12:01 a.m. on Monday.

However you do retain any points of a legislator you cut.

Clear as mud?

Rep. Sondra Erickson-R is listed as a free agent. She is actually a member of the Beavers. After the showing of our team this week she may have quit! My guess however is that it's just a typo.

Yes... you retain all points of a legislator you cut up to the point he/she was cut.

A question: if two teams submit a waiver claim on the same legislator, what determines who picks him or her up? The original draft order? Current rankings? Time the waiver claim was submitted?

Yeah, it's a pretty low-tech method of generating these reports and I'm still trying to settle into a routine. When a "player" is picked up, the first thing I do is make sure they get on that team (by copying cells in Exel), then set up a split-season group of cells to calculate their pre- and post-waiver points, and then the last step is to delete them from the free agent cells. I'm sure forgetting that last part was the problem here.

The record of the team as of midnight on Friday. So the lower the team is in the standings, the earlier they get to pick in the waiver draft. Inverse order of standings.

I've referred to these people as "free agents" but they're more accurately just members of the "waiver pool."

from what i remember the tiebreak for waiver requests was the team with the lowest current standing. maybe the League would allow us to enter a "second choice" on the form for waiver pickups?

Go Carriers!
