When you discussed Vickrey FAAB bidding in previous episodes, you guys usually say something along the lines of "wanting a player and putting a high bid, but that can backfire if someone else really wants the player too."
Isn't the point of a Vickrey system that you can say "I would pay $45 for this player, but I wouldn't pay $46." The way you guys discuss it, it's as if you throw a $60 bid and hope for the best, even if you would be unhappy if you had to pay anything over $45.
