OK then. Before we start to make bids, we should definitely have the contract renewals in order.
Tuesday 1st of Sept @ 18:00: Begin to renew contracts.
Friday 4th Sept @ 20:00: Deadline for contract renewal shuts.
That gives Tuesday evening, 2 full days, and then Friday evening (I chose the 20:00 deadline so we can go to the bar on Friday night
Saturday 5th Sept: I think this would be a good rest day. Allow GW to get his spread sheets in order, see which teams have which players etc. Also, it'll give us a bit of time to think about who we should go for when the proper bidding begins.
Sunday 6th Sept: Do we have a round of silent bidding? I think it'd be cool, though obviously there's not so many players up for grabs as last time. If we do, then we make our silent bids to one of the game admins (we can decide later who). We can allow 2-3 days for people do this, though if everyone makes their bids any everyone is happy then we can proceed.
Tuesday 8th Sept @ 19:00: Deadline for silent bids.
Wednesday 9th Sept: We get the results from our round of silent bidding. Once the results have been started we can begin bidding regularly I guess, with each player having a 48hr window after the last bid.
Not sure when I should make the deadline for bidding. I don't think we even need one. We just continue until everyone has complete squads.
Main decision to make. Do we want silent bidding?
