That's half of it. The other half is, my schedule is kinda fluid, and unfortunately you can't autodraft in auction draft. So, yeah, joining the normal draft league when it starts up, but the bidding war draft league is not for me. Rotsa Ruck to all of you, though.

You can, but it's far too easy to mess with. In the auction draft last year, the people who were there had great fun nominating defenses (because they were listed for far too much money). People autodrafting got their 2nd defense in before they got anything else. Good times.

And then there were 13. The second place kid from last year, me, is in to go all the way this year. One spot left people.
Concerning auction drafts, last year was my first and it was awesome and easily blew away the "snake drafts" I have done in the past. I'm not just saying that because of getting second either; the draft was 100% more exciting with this auction format.

Wouldn't it be hi-larious if he was invited to minicamp but only allowed to watch? Maybe a little "see, if you weren't such a jackass in college, this is what you might have been able to do?" Sweet, sweet schadenfreude...
