The problem I see with that is too often the nominating owner will also have interest in the player, and the auctioneer should never also be bidding for a player. I think it would make for some very inconsistent "Going once, going twice, sold!" calls and ruffle some feathers. My opinion is the auctioneer should have no interest in the player, better yet if you can get someone who is not even in the league to be your auctioneer.
