Add a new rule, “Recruitment”:

Each Manager may employ up to three Bloggers (what we call Bloggsball players, to disambiguate them from Blognomic players). Information about Bloggers, including which Manager employs them, is tracked on the wiki page Blogger Roster.

At any time, the Commissioner may put the employment of a new Blogger up to an auction open to all Managers, including the Commissioner. To do so, the Commissioner makes a Story Post (the Auction) containing information about a new Blogger, including (at least) their Name and Level. Their Level is determined by the sum of 3 DICE6 rolled in the GNDT.

Any comment on an Auction that contains the string “I bid $X” or “I bid £X” is a valid bid of value X if X is an unambiguous integer and the commenting Manager employs fewer than three Bloggers. After the Auction has been posted for more than 24 hours, the Commissioner may close the auction by noting this in a comment. When the auction is closed, the Manager who had the valid bid with the highest value X spends X from their Cash to employ that Blogger.

I will be easily outbid, of course. Unless he’s so bad you couldn’t pay anyone else to take him!
