Looking for a roto auction league

Postby Iggy » Thu Nov 15, 2007 5:40 pm

I am looking to join a new league with the following set up:

- entry fee of ~$50 to $100
- minimum of 14 teams and 400 total players on active and reserve rosters
- auction (slow auction on a message board, chat room, etc)
- 5 x 5 roto
- no minor league draft
- if a keeper league would prefer a small # of keepers, say 2 to 8
- preferably hosted on CBS Sportsline

I am an experienced fantasy baseball manager and can assure you I will remain active and competitive for the entire year. Rick

I am looking for 1 more auction roto league but am unable to help commish b/c of time issues. Would join though.

ok well it seems that we have a bit of interest but just need someone to take over and i have the time so i dont mind doing it.

heres what i'm thinking, though pretty much everything is flexible
CBS Sportsline
$50-100 fee (part of which go to sportsline fees)
14-16 teams
non-keeper (flexible if the majority wants a keeper league)
auction
5x5 roto
23 man active roster (14 hitter, 9 pitchers)
6 man bench
no minor league draft (though minor leaguers could be drafted to the regular roster during the draft)

anyone interested should shoot me an email at mailto:mgmarinakis@gmail.com so i can get a list going

Hey Giantsfan, All Other Takers...

I have an Mixed Auction League called BANG THE GAVEL that I'll be running which I will post a link to on this thread hopefully on Monday. I'm just ironing out the constitution and setting up threads for voting on a bunch of topics including:

-ROTO vs. H2H
-# of Keepers (if any)
-possible move from W category to QS.
-$30, $40, or $50 buy in

The only glaring difference I see in what you're proposing is the buy in so hopefully we can get a full on 12 plus teams within the next week. (I have about 4 GMs so far, not including posters to this thread)

I was very much hoping someone would step up to help me run it so maybe that can be you. I've been Commishing a small ROTO league for a couple of years but have been playing in a 20 teamer for over 5 years (winning the past 2x!... knock on wood) and have a good rep. of helping to write/interpret rules in a fair manner. What I lack is auction experience however, so I was hoping to get someone to help flesh out a Commisioner's council of 2 other active, knowledgable GMs. Anyway, if you're interested stay tuned and you can see the first draft of the constitution on Monday. Cool.

Well, as I said earlier in this thread, I've been preparing to launch a new ROTO AUCTION league in the coming days. Some settings you should know are: weekly lineups, some keepers (5,7, or 9) and online auction at a site TBD. I'm hoping for 12-16 teams and have 6 so far, but its very early and I'm confident it will be filled within a month. Anyone interested in this league, please send me an email at mailto:mistersee@hushmail.com w/ your fantasy experience and I will send you a link to the proboards site. Thanks, Anthony

I would be interested in an auction league, but with no keepers. I like to draft will a full plate each year.

For what it is worth, I am going to be running some auction leagues this year myself. I would like to get a 12 Team AL, 13 Team NL, and/or 15 Team Mixed auction league going. Will use Rotowire for the service and the auction draft will be online. Entry will be around $50-$75 plus Rotowire fees (about $5 per owner).

If anyone has interest, shoot me a PM. I started a list of interested people a few weeks ago.

Thanks.
