couchmanagers.com just launched mock auctions. They have something I haven't seen anywhere (fantasyauctioneer, cbs, espn, etc). That is slow mock auctions. Just like those done in the forums here at fantasy baseball cafe, you can have an auction run over a few weeks.

Not sure about their interface for real time auctions, but the slow auction interface seems to be great.
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium

Its probably too early to get any feedback on the application, but if someone has used it, I would love to hear about the experience.

Well, our auction is 1 week away and would like to get some feedback from other commish/owners that have used CBS's auction. Its is done the same way as fantasyauctioneer? (ie. Bid+1, etc)

thanks

Bid + 1 button: there
Visual countdown sphere: not there
Seeing other teams easily: not there
Finding players to look up: kind of a pain

All else: about the same.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I can tell you that ESPN was really nice. Nice count down, any bids in the last ten seconds reset the clock to ten. Easy to find players. Commish controls are ok. I could pause the auction and change the bid time and nominate time but not much else. We had keepers so it was hard to rebid players since the system wanted to rebid all the keepers too instead of just the last player, that was a pain. Otherwise it's pretty slick.
