Thanks for the input, everyone.
As background for people, recognize that we're running a compressed process right now, so this is probably not really how it's going to run in future seasons. In future seasons the free agent signing period is going to occur during the NFL season, and you're gong to be pursuing free agents on a staggered basis rather than seeing the whole league at once (based on our current plans). This means that a longer window may be required on the bidding.
Linked to that is, quite frankly, our business goal of keeping people involved in the league so our paying customers don't wander off and start playing Tetris or something during the offseason. We want their involvement to be year-round at a low intensity with a big burst during the Sandbox season in February and March. So we need a system that is strategic in nature and keeps people active at a low but sustainable level over a 16 to 20 week "Sandbox offseason". So as you're providing feedback, please keep that in mind.
We'll keep improving it and appreciate the feedback. But the real test is going to come in the next free agent period after this when we enter the real-time league calendar.
My ancestors fought cave bears so I could make this post.
