It's not really a number that varies directly with statistics or length of season anyways. I mean, you could have $100 for a 10-year league and people might bid pennies on a weekly acquisition. Or you could have a 3-week league with people bidding $40 just to get a Linus Omark.
I think the harder thing is trying to figure out what the mind-set of your opponents will be when there is, say, a breakout waiver player available in the 7th week, say, of a 20 week NHL schedule.
Yeah that makes sense. I guess I thought that even though some managers have spent money already, I wasn't sure if they would be automatically adjusted like max games have been done. So, for example, 100 would become say 80, but if they had 94 left, they would end up with 73 or so (just guessing). Yahoo does this automatically for max games so wasn't sure if budgets were done the same way. I also just realised that Yahoo would likely have mentioned it on the league page (as they have already re: lockout changes).
But yeah, I can understand that it doesn't need to have an effect based on the number of games being played, rather it would be an adjustment on how much managers would bid on specific players.
