Well, if we were to, now would be the time to do it since we have 7 months.  ::)

I think it would be possible on here with set lengths for each pick... Iím thinking after the first 15 or so the back and forth would slow down significantly. The first three would probably need 24 hours each, bu fluke you say, we have 7 months...

I'm not even sure all of those interested in this league even know how to do an auction draft.

Been a while since I did an auction draft... I know I used to annoy people in NFL drafts by starting with kickers and defense even though I felt that was the smart way.

Probably a little too much for a forum like this...

Yeah. I'll probably just stick to the old draft format. I'm trying to encourage posters to participate with the incentive that they really don't have to do anything in-season if they don't want to (no weekly rosters), not discourage them by having an auction draft and some of them asking themselves, "wtf?". LOL ??? :P ::) ;D :D

So, as expected, I've decided to give this league a try. Remember, to make things easier during the regular season, you will NOT be required to post a weekly roster. However, you can still make roster changes throughout the season if you like. I hope this encourages others to join who do not have the time or patience during the regular season. We'll probably go 10-12 rounds for the first season to see if it's actually any easier than the keeper league.


I'll presume the usual suspects are joining, but please make your interest official. I will also add a few posters whom I think may play. They, too, can also confirm their interest or not. Obviously anyone not listed can also play.

No better time than the present, I suppose. I think we'll try an AUCTION DRAFT since we don't have a real deadline here. I know Hoops Fan won't participate and may turn off a few others, but it will be something different.

If I'm correct, FC Grizzlies, HOPEful, Smitty, 7 express (I talked to him) and I are in for sure. If you want to play but don't fully understand the concept, we'll help you through it.


Basically, we'll have a "draft order" but that is just the order for you to put a team on the block for bidding.

For example

1. Greek
2. HOPEful
3. Grizzlies
4. Smitty
5. Express

So, I would just choose a team to put on the block for bidding and I would open the bidding at whatever price I want. If no one bids, then I "win" that team. Otherwise someone else can bid and others can counter bid until only one person is left standing.

If you are not interested in that team or the bid goes too high, you would just post "pass".

The total process in one post would kind of look like this:

Bid team - UW-Stout

Greek - 1 10 pass
HOPEful - 5 pass
Grizzlies - 3 15 (winning bid)
Smitty - pass
Express - pass

Process

Greek opening bid of $1
Smitty passes
Grizzlies bids $3
HOPEful bids $5
Express passes
Greek bids $10
Grizzlies bids $15
HOPEful passes
Greek passes

Grizzlies wins UW-Stout for $15 out of a budget of $200.

Everyone else still has $200.

Once you reach your roster limit, you're done. You cannot bid or have the option to put a team on the block. Obviously some teams will reach their limit before others.

Any questions, comments, suggestions?

I think we'll start next week.

What's the roster limit? 8? 10? 12?
And perhaps turn leftover money at the end of the draft into a few bonus points?

I'm excited! This will be fun!

Number of teams per team and budget are my only questions...
