From Mattheim Sussroller:
AGENT 1: Go to hell forever
Monday, December 09, 2013
Discuss all general rumors, gossip, scuttlebutt, lies, mysteries and such from Orlando here, I guess.

Sorry to self-link, but a few people had expressed interest in seeing how this turned out. I took 30 fans, made them the GM of their respective team, and had them negotiate trades with each other, and free agent contracts with me. After one week, this is the end result.
I know the first instinct is to say, “that trade/signing is ridiculous!” Which is of course, our response to most real transactions. But the whole point of this exercise was that I was tired of fans saying “player X won’t get more than Y” or “the team should trade for Z” in a vacuum. It is a lot harder to actually achieve this when you’re negotiating with an actual person on the other end.
I am interested in running a Primate version of this. I may not have time this year, but if there is enough interest, I would like to set one up for next year. Let me know if there is any interest.
