    Draft idea - bid for position

    The idea here would be:
    - Everyone taking part has $1,000,000 to bid with
    - You then use this to bid (in a silent auction - i.e. bids are e-mailed to me) for your positions in the draft.

    Just to illustrate, suppose we have 3 players (X, Y and Z) bidding for a 5-man team

    X is desperate to get first pick, and bids (999,996; 1; 1; 1; 1)
    Y wants some early picks, and bids (600,000; 300,000; 90,000; 5000; 5000)
    Z wants to avoid late picks, and bids (200,000; 200,000; 200,000; 200,000; 200,000)

    Then the picking order for the draft would be: X, Y, Y, Z, Z, Z, Z, Z, Y, Y, Y, X, X, X, X.

    Anyone interested?

    Person who's gone longest without a pick picks next.

    E.g. if we change the set up in the original post to:

    X bids (799,997; 200,000; 1; 1; 1)
    Y bids (599,997; 200,000; 200,000; 2; 1)
    Z bids (200,000; 200,000; 200,000; 200,000; 200,000)

    Then the order of picks would be:
    X (799,997)
    Y (599.997)
    Z (200.000) ahead of X & Y as Z hasn't picked previously
    X (200,000) ahead of Y & Z as X now hasn't picked for longest
    Y (200,000) as Z picked more recently. Y and Z now have alternate picks for a while
    Z (200,000)
    Y (200,000)
    Z (200,000)
    Z (200,000) now only Z is involved in the tie, so keeps picking
    Z (200.000)
    Y (2)
    X (1) tie broken in X's favour
    Y (1) and now in Y's favour
    X (1) only X now involved
    X (1)
    X (1)

    This doesn't work if two (or more) people make the same highest bid; in that case, the tie will be broken at random.

    As I understand it, no.

    -

    A few more questions for Andrew: is Bradman eligible? can you bid with non-integers? are negative bids allowed (just confirming that they aren't)?
