Holy ****... I'm glad eBay doesn't work like that!

So I have to Nominate two players EVERY WEEK? or I just need to have two Nominations up at a time.

You will nominate one on Sunday for Monday, and one on Wednesday for Thursday.

So basically my question is simple: regardless of how many nominations I have out there I have to nominate two per week (on those days you said). Even if the bidding is still going on for several over players I nominated?

Doesn't matter how many players you've nominated that are still being bid on. Typically, the bidding won't last more than 3-4 days max, unless people just wait until the end of the 24 hour period to bid.

The beauty of this is the fact that you really only have to check in once a day if you are pressed for time.

Yes, I prefer this format much more than the slow snake draft format (8 hour time limits, PM the next guy, blah).

A Quick Note about Off-season Injuries and Player News
I'll just put this out there now to pre-empt anything. Part of having such an early draft (and all the fun that comes with it) is the downside of having imperfect information about opening day. Unfortunate player news, offseason injuries, and spring-training injuries are bound to happen between now and opening day. That said, we all start from the same place so each of us is vulnerable to it equally. If you get hit with an injury bug before the season even starts, that's all part of it. Take it like a champ!

Happy Auction Day -1 !

Back in the 80's when I was young and not so risk averse (read stupid) I drafted the same guy in the first round of 3 goals pools (for real money). To make a long story short about an hour after I took him in the last pool he broke his leg and was out for half the season. So if your big guy goes down I may needle you but I'll definitely feel for you. :~(

Looking forward to this - Good luck to everyone!
