BF Football Auction League-Got Our 10-Go Time.


For a while now I have wanted to do an auction league and I have had some interest from other members as well on this board so I though I would throw it out there and see how much interest there is.


Here is the plan...

Every team (10) starts out with a certain amount of money. Each day, ten randomly (we will figure this out) players will be put up via forums lie this in the morning. We would have 8 hours to bid on them, open bidding, and at 4 the bidding would stop with the high bidder getting the player for that price. Then the next day we would do it ll over again. I just wanted to check if there is any interest in a money league like this before I finalize any plans. Of course, people would have to take a leap of faith that I wouldn't just take the money but I assure you that I am an honest guy.

I was considering trying to start something like this myself. I was planning on making it a contract league with a rookie draft and auction free agency, but that can get pretty complicated.


I'd definately be interested in this league. I do have a concern with your silent auction draft though. A person who has computer access all day could just wait until 3:55 before posting their bid and get in over the top, while someone without access would be at a disadvantage. What about something where say 5 guys at each position are put on the auction block, and aren't sold until 24 hours after the last bid. Everyone has a chance to get back in on the bidding, and nobody can grab him just before the time limit. After one player is purchased, another goes on sale. Just a thought.

Looking for a couple more. I also agree with the poster that said the bidding might be iffy. I would prefer a blind bidding structure where everyone throws out a number at some point during the day, not knowing what everyone else is bidding, highest bidder takes it. Also, any suggestions would be great as I have never done this before.

Also, I have to ask that you pay ASAP so the whole league doesnt get ripped off (happened in the past). Money breakdown for winners can be discussed as soon as we know if we have 10 or 12.

So far I have gotten 5 emails from people and with myself that would be 6. I will be replying to them shortly about where we are drafting and whatnot. I suppose the next 6 people, or 4 if we can only get 10, will get an invite. Again, the email is above in one of my other posts.
