Thank you for your inquiry to my Auction league. Two issues I wish to cover to make sure you are interested in the right type of league. League ID 228455
This is a keeper league. Most settings will be determined by league vote in YAHOO GROUPS. It will be h2h, and 12-14 teams.
This is a league with and entry fee. The fee will be $50.00. . The prize money will be paid based on playoffs as follows 50% (1st), 25% (2nd), 15% (3rd), 10% (4th), This league will be highly competitve and I hope to secure managers with appropriate experience. We have 10 solid managers at this point paid and ready to go.
I collect through PayPal. It provides some protection for you managers as they have all my personal information and can come after me. The money is deposited into a dedicated bank account at Citibank. After payment is received, I will invite the manager into the GROUP. Once we have at least 10 teams, we will start on league set up issues. The draft date is TBD.
If you have any questions, please ask. Thanks again.

You are allowed an unlimited amount of keepers. Every year your keepers must be moved up 2 rounds in the draft. If you have a player drafted in round 10, the following year he is drafted in round 8. ALL players drafted in rounds 1 and 2 go back into the pool.
Players undrafted and taken off the WW during the season would be assigned the last round in the draft.
Players dropped by other teams and picked up off the WW would be assigned the round they were originally drafted.
If you have multiple players , thru trades or WW pickups, assigned to the same round, you will have to move the extras up a round for this year and all subsequent years drafts. Ex: you end up with 3 players that were drafted in round 10, they are assigned 10, 9, and 8 for THIS years draft and will all move up 2 rounds as normal for next year. YOU decide which ones get moved up and which one stays in the round drafted.
We will set the drafting order as soon as possible to facilitate trades.
The deadline for setting your keepers will be February 1 the following year. Trading of anyone one your roster and draft picks will be allowed before this time. After Feb 1, only keepers and draft pick trades will be allowed.
I hope we have a group that will participate every year. IF a team is inactive for more than 2 weeks without some kind of notification, a replacement manager will be found. If you need to quit for any reason, give as much notice as possible so a replacement manager will have time to work on the team.
