Soooooo....yeah. I have never done one of these before. (Auction Drafts) I have never been the commissioner of any kind of draft before. Any suggestions or help you can give go ahead and make them. Only a 12 man team because I really hate anything bigger. Bring it!!


I am an idiot, sometimes.

I'm bumping this a little. And I'm going to quote a Bill Simmons column to try and drum up some interest.


Originally quoted by Bill Simmons
__________________________________________________________

Recommendation No. 2: Everyone switches to an auction format
Why? Because nobody in the history of mankind has ever NOT had fun during an auction. Because it spares us from the missionary-position feel of a round-by-round draft; auctions can go in any direction. (You never know who might run out of money too soon, you never know which bargains will be lurking at the end and you can't predict anyone else's game plan. In a round-by-round draft, I can see who's picking No. 2 and guess "He's going to do this, this and this" and probably be right. In an auction? No way.) Because simmering tensions can bubble to the surface, usually when two dudes who secretly don't like each other suddenly get into a rooster-swinging contest over some random QB. Because nothing's more fun than bidding someone else up, and nothing's less fun than getting stuck with that player if the other owner backs off. Because it's always fun to make fun of the one guy who outsmarted himself and got stuck with $20-$25 he can't use. And best of all, because someone like Chris Johnson goes to the highest bidder instead of someone who just lucked out by pulling an ace from a deck of cards.

(Put it this way: I have never, not once, talked to someone who did a fantasy auction, then decided afterward, "Nahhhhh, I still like round-by-round more." Also, some leagues have an auction until every team acquires eight or 10 players, then they go round-by-round after that. Or, as I'd like to christen this idea right now, "The Surf and Turf." I like this wrinkle. Best of both worlds.)

To be far, I think a lot of the people who would be interested in an auction league have already joined the league in http://the-w.com/thread.php/id=41207 . In fact, someone dropped out between the time Teapot joined so I just registered as the 16th team in that league.

That might have been me. I prefer to autodraft because my schedule isn't flexible enough to commit to any draft time. That's why I bailed on the auction draft.



I'm Charlie Owens, good night, and good luck.

Oops. I forgot about it. It was one of those "I thought it was too early to think about" and buried it. My bad.

I did notice someone else left the 16 team auction league, so there's a spot there. If you want to be in a 16 team auction league.

So Favre will start, Pederson will backup, and then...uh, Smith/Crouch/Craig Nall will magically merge into one? The Packers could just ask Crouch to play somewhere other than quarterback. No harm could come of that.
