I've never been in a league with as many starting spots as this (QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, plus 2 WR/RB). Add the high scoring from the current settings, and it could be pretty wild. I'm looking forward to seeing how it works out.

Xio, you are one tough competitor and I respect ya lots. But I invited people in this league for good reason. Plus, nobody in this league is in the War League. Beating you in 1 league is just the same as beating you in 2. ;)

...and for the record, I lost in the Championship by .5 pts last year in the War League. You didn't get that far, so don't say we tied. That's not true.

...and I don't have to paint a picture of dominance. Everything is in my Yahoo Trophy Showcase. Wanna compare??? :D

I lost by one pt. in the round before. I won the regular season outright. Obviously the regular season is not what's important, but I made it far in the playoffs and lost in similar miniscule fashion.

Never did I complain that I wasn't in the league. I was merely commenting that you have a far easier path to the championship without me in the league. http://draftcountdown.com/forum/images/icons/icon7.gif

6:15 PM ET on either Sunday, the 24th or the 31st, is fine with me. If it is the former, missing out on the fourth week of preseason isn't a big deal, most of the starters hardly play those games.

Draft order will be randomized by Yahoo, 15 minutes before start time. There is an applet that will open up for the draft when you go to the league site. Once you open it up you will be able to see the order, time clock, players avail, and a queue for you to put players in that you want to draft. It's fun.

Basically we all have a salary cap, and the auction part is as you can imagine. A random draft order doesn't determine which players goes where, everyone has a shot at every player if they're willing to pay.

Try out the mock auctions at ESPN to get a good first-hand look.

bearsfan_51
08-19-2008, 04:07 PM
That's cool. I'd like to maintain the PPR scoring rules though, as I've done quite a bit to prepare for that and don't want to do it all over again.

bsaza2358
08-19-2008, 04:12 PM
Auctions are more fair because you can get any player you want if you pay. But everyone has the same budget, so if you spend too much early, you won't get your sleepers. You can bluff and make people overspend, etc. It is a fun time, especially in person.

11 PM ET might be too late for an action, D. (Although living on the west coast, I'm fine with it.)

Unlike a regular draft, we can't just shoot through and make a pick in 5 or 10 seconds as opposed to using all 60 or 90 seconds allotted.

bsaza2358
08-19-2008, 04:26 PM
The first 50 or so will take a while because people will be bidding and such, but you limit the time between proposals and the time before the picks get logged. It can go pretty quick. I'm okay with 11 PM, and I'm EST. Shouldn't take more than 105 minutes or so.

D, the big thing we can try to do to make this as quick as possible is to cut down the time that people have to propose players and the time before it goes to the once, twice, sold. Cut that down to low levels, and it'll be faster for us.

I changed everyone's team names to their usernames here. After the draft, you may change your team name. This will make it easier to distinguish each other during the draft.
Fair enough.

Thoughts? I thought it looked pretty sharp on the League home page.

Yeah, I did. Sorry about that. Geo is right to an extent though. Since you can get any player you want if you win the bid for that player.

I was trying to force guys to move over to ESPN. If they saw the league was gone, then they would come here lookin'.

On the real though... would you give up if you got a team you didn't like? Cause the only thing I ask is for you guys to have fun in this league and be active posters/participators. Otherwise, I think it's more fair to the league to find people who would stay active. I'm hoping you could be apart of that.

I'm just going to assume that. I can't find out where it would say that.

That's what the mock auctions have, but compared to them we have an additional RB/WR spot and an additional bench spot, so I'm wondering if that changes anything.

Did you want to change the roster to make it match the mock auctions?

No, it really doesn't matter. If everyone has one more spot we'll just each spend however much less. Plan accordingly, it shouldn't be a big deal at all.

Besides, most people are just betting a dollar on the last 2-3 players anyway.

D, what is the dollar budget here? Is that configurable on ESPN? Ideally, you want between $11 and $12 average per player, so for a standard 16 x $12, you want a budget of around $200 or so.

yeah.

no explanation on how waivers work? trading?

how about 0 dollar picks that no one bets on?

bsaza2358
08-22-2008, 09:11 AM
Here is my prediction/opinion:

I believe that waivers should work just like everything else. No change in operation.

Every player has to be sold for at least $1, and every undrafted player then goes on waivers.

I don't believe there should be an in-season salary cap. Too difficult to manage.

Geo
08-22-2008, 10:49 AM
I agree. The auction part is just to replace the Draft, I would think.

To nominate a player, you have to bid at least one dollar. And the system will not allow to blow your money if you haven't completed the roster, ie. you can't make a bid for all $13 of your remaining cap when you have 3 open spots, the max you can bid is $11 to leave $2 for those last two spots.

P-L
08-22-2008, 11:02 AM
Is the order that we nominate players randomly determined, like a draft order.

bsaza2358
08-22-2008, 11:10 AM
It is random, I believe, and there is no snake order. It goes 1-12, 1-12, etc. The waiver order should be determined randomly after the auction, IMO.

I tried to look and can't find it. I'm just going to assume it's the standard $200. Adjust accordingly.

Seems like your plate is too busy for NFLDC anyways, no? When are you planning to make your elaborate return? Is that still your plan?

With the draft time approaching in a couple days, I needed to get confirmation. I needed all members to register before ESPN would allow the league to be set up. So in order for everyone to prepare for the draft, I had to get a full membership or no one could see the settings, prerank players, etc.

After many failed attempts at PMs and Emails, I had to move on. I can't afford flaky players. ...and I'm not calling you flaky, but your nickname was not made Mr. Invisible for nothing. ...ha, I guess that is calling you flaky in a way. lol.

Let me know how passionate you are about this and maybe we can work something out. drowe has suddenly backed out and Xiomera I know is passionate about taking his spot.

thule is definitely out. I don't know where in tar nations that guy is.

So its Sunday the 24th, right? NOT Sunday the 31st?

As for the cap, its seems like the standard is $200 bucks, but that's a 10 man league and QB/RB/RB/RBorWR/WR/WR/TE/DST/K, which is nine starting spots. This league has two more teams and one more starting spot, which is 30 more starters, not to mention the benches. Shouldn't the cap per team go down, so as to keep the same total $ amount (ie, $2000 total)?

Yes, it is Sunday, August 24 at 11PM ET.

As for the cap, I'm just going to go with whatever ESPN gives us and I'm assuming that is $200.

My question is, should I change the roster spots?

I did an auction mock. It was 12 teams, 16 rounds (instead of 18) and there was a $200 cap. A lot of people in the mock were driving up the prices of players, so I spent too much money on my top five players. However, I think $200 can still work fine as long as you're careful.

Geo

Don't front, you bid everyone else out of the water to make sure you had Calvin Johnson.

I had Frank Gore, Marshawn Lynch, Maurice Jones-Drew, Tom Brady, and Braylon Edwards. I also had Todd Heap. Unfortunately, I had Patrick Crayton as my #2 WR and I had basically no bench.

I kind of wish ESPN didn't include their dollar values, because more often than not it dictates what the end result will be by default. Would be more interesting without them, I think.

But of course I can see why they're included, to help.
