    Can we change FOA allocations from a percentage of funds to actual dollars?

    Would like to be able to allocate whole dollar amounts rather than percentages. its more accurate and real that way.

    Simple Rules:

    1. Stop recruiting new owners for your half dead crappy leagues. Your efforts would be better used looking for a stable league with owners who actually care about their teams. Winning the world series in a half unowned league is not worthy of your time.

    2. If you are trading an elite item like a no1 overall pick or a superstud player, then dont take the first offer you get. Advertise your availability to the league to maximize your return. Your trade partner is not going to protect you from underselling yourself.

    3. Quoted from a thread about Monopoly gameplay: "This strategy will end up killing you in the long run. You WANT to make deals. You WANT to be easy to do business with. If players get the impression that you're always going to ask for unreasonable demands, they'll trade with other players, leaving you out of those trades, meaning you get nothing of value while they benefit. Remember, your goal in a trade should not be to screw your trading partner, but to screw anyone who isn't your trading partner. Then people will catch on and realize that if they're not going to give you fair rates, they're going to be left out in the cold, which means that you shouldn't be dealing with people who play that way either."

    Absolutely agree. With percentages, there's always wasted money, because everything above what is required for the FOA level you have achieved (whatever/10) is wasted, and usually the leftover/wasted amounts are enough to raise the level of another FOA category.

    This could be done with a "lock" tick box next to a FOA box. When you enter a dollar amount in that box, all the others adjust according to what's leftover, then tick the "lock" box, so that when you adjust the next one, it doesn't affect that one.

    Agreed , whilst i enjoy the challenge of trying to manage FOA and i feel its an area where i gain a competitive edge on other owners , i still feel that pimps idea is good.
    I just can't look its killing me
    And taking control
    Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
    Swimming through sick lullabies
    Choking on your alibis
    But it's just the price I pay
    Destiny is calling me
    Open up my eager eyes
    Cause I'm Mr Brightside
