Total Redraft League With Live Auction Draft Needs an Owner (1 Viewer)


Hey Folks,

I have a league called the Phoenix Live Auction league that currently needs one more owner. The league has been around for 3 season's now and we use a live auction draft because they are a lot more fun then boring old long timered auction drafts. lol
As the league name says, this league uses a live auction draft for owners to fill their rosters. The live auction draft will take place on August 4th at 6 pm EST. We will be using the ESPN site for the live auction draft, but will be using the Myfantasyleague.com site for the regular season. We had a lot of problems with the MFL.com software last year and don't want to use it this year.

Anyway, this is a 12 team total redraft league with 16 player rosters and a starting lineup of 1 QB, 1-2 RB's, 2-4 WR's, 0-1 TE's, 1 K and 1 Def. Each team
must come out of the live auction draft with enough players to fill a full starting lineup.
The way the live auction works is simple. The first team in the draft order has 40 seconds to put up a player. Once they put up a player, everyone who wants
to bids on that player. The team that can hold the bid for 15 seconds, wins that player. Once that player is won, he moves to that teams roster and the next team in the draft order puts up a player. We do this until every team has 16 players on their roster.
Each team has a total of $200 to purchase their 16 players. You cannot go over the $200 and you must purchase 16 players.
The bids are done in $1 increments, but that doesn't mean a team can't bid more then that. If a player is currently at say $8 and you think he's worth $15,
you can bid $15 and it will move you to the high bid. You also have to watch for people who will bump up the bid quite a bit with the intention of forcing
someone to spend more then they want to on a player. So be careful when bidding.
Anyway, this is a really fun way to build a roster. Every owner has the same chance at the top players, but you have to remember that you only have so
much money. Once people start buying players, their initial $200 goes down by the amount a player costs. By the end of the auction, teams will be buying
players for $1.

As I said above, I need a owner for this league. You must be able to pay by July 31st although I can live with you paying by August 2nd, but no later. You
must also be available for at least 2-3 hours on the night of August 4th. As that's how long the live auction will take.
Thanks and the first person to email me at LoneWolf1023@aol.com AND who can pay the league fee by August 2nd at the absolute latest will get the spot.

PS. Since people always worry about the person running a league, I wanted to attach my main league page to this message: http://www.theultimateownerfantasyfootballleagues.com/ As you can see, I run a total of 31 Fantasy Football leagues and have been running leagues for going into my 13th year now. Everyone that wins a prize in my league gets paid out no later then 2 weeks after the completion of the League Championship games. I work my butt off to run the best leagues I can and all money is paid out besides the site fee.
