The idea of Blind Bidding in the previous article seems to have been well received by everyone, so I have prepared some sample pages of how it will work.
- You check out the available players on the Register an Interest in a Player page. You then select the player you are interested in and click Submit, I get an email which just has the players name on, there is no identifiable information so I don’t know who wants the player
- I then create an similar article to what we had last season which tells you how to bid
- You then go to the Bidding Form. A drop down list will be there for all the players who currently have interest registered in them. You input your name, select the player and cast your bid. The bid is logged in a separate spreadsheet and I’ll only open it after the bids have closed (all bids will now close at 19:00, no point staggering them)
- At the end of the day (or week depending on my time) I will publish the results of the bidding so its all above board
Let me know what you think.
