PM's sent to all owners. I may be jumping the gun, but we need to get started. Anyone want to take over as a MOD for Boomer? I nominate wrveres. I can help out, but I don't know if I can run the whole thing here. I'll try if nobody steps up, but for my own selfish reasons I'd defer to someone else.

So Lebo...you're thinking on Day 1 there will be 24 player auctions going?

I also didn't get a PM...not that the indicator grabs my attention.

For the new guys, last years draft spreadsheet. Might give you a feel for the other owners.

Yeah with our late start I think it would be wise to start with 24 players nominated for auction the first few times. If we see we are getting done quickly then we can scale back.

I also think it would go faster if we ran this like a draft room style. When one or the guys you nominate comes off the board you nominate another one, that way we don't have to wait until the next nomination day, we will always have 24 players up for bid. Does that sound like something everyone would be cool with, or should we stay with our standard nomination process?

I've kinda taken over this thing so far be default, but I'm not really dying to run this thing. If you all want to stay as we've done it in the past, that's fine as well.

I would like to stay the way it was. That way you can skip a day or two if you're not interested in any of the noms

Suggestion....I run a slow auction also. Every owner nominates a player. After 24 hours of inactivity that player is awarded to the highest bidder. The nominating owner automatically nominates a new player. There is always twelve players available for bid. With keepers last season we were done in five weeks.
