Famous Coaches Auction League

League FULL

Its a 14 team league with no Keepers, each year we'll start the rosters fresh. And we'll use a free Yahoo site to run the league in the regular season. With the Auction being all done here on the Cafe draft room. viewforum.php?f=262

Some of you may remember I ran a similiar league here last year called the Famous Coaches Cafe League. Anyway this new league is pretty much a repeat of those rules and format. Go the the league's draft room to read the rules in detail.

We got up to 14 owners and were all set to get rolling and along came the CAFE upgrade. After the Upgrade only 12 owners made it back for the start of the Auction, we picked up one new guy so we're just in need of 1 more to start the 24 hour bid clock. Its a great way to spend the month of June, but you should plan on almost daily checkin to keep up with the bid cycles.

If interested please PM as soon as possible. If we can get back to 14 quickly then the Auction will restart with the nominations that are already on the table (no players have been won yet, so any new guys will have a chance to get who they want).

Just starting up so the whole league is an open spot ;-)

You can now see the rules now posted in the draft room.

And if you've never done this style Auction that's fine, but you should plan on spending a minimum of 3-4 weeks checking in once a day to keep up. Its possible to do well by occassionally missing 2 or 3 days, but it really hurts an Auction league when owners miss more than a few days :-t

I'm gonna go ahead and declare this league a freebie, that will make it easier to recruit with that issue settled.

Anyone wanting to try their first Auction message board style, this is the one for YOU ;-D You don't have to worry over keepers, or cap years, or none of that complicated gobble-de-goup. Its like a Yahoo freebie only instead of a draft we have an auction. And because its run message board style over the course of a few weeks you get to think your bids over and really go after the players you think are best ;-)

All interested parties should go post a greeting in the "Prospective owners thread" http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/foru ... .php?f=262

I'm gonna send out direct invitations to folks over the weekend, but I wanted to bump this to the top for the view of forum regulars.

This is your chance to do a free auction starting in June -its a great way to spend the summer and give great practice at the auction format ;-D

BTW, the reason I'd like to get to 14 is because its the perfect size for a yahoo league with a 6 team playoff format. It leaves 13 weeks for the regular season with each team playing the entire league once. Then wks 14-16 for the playoffs ;-D

Hello. I would like to join the league. I just joined these boards, but have been very active in fantasy football for a long time. I didn't want to sign up on the "prospective owners" page until I knew for sure it was cool

Thanks,
hanny
