First year of a $50 auction dynasty league. We have 11 of the 12 teams and I know all 11 owners. We are all very active, very addicted, and very ready to get started. We have the site purchased, and are in the process of finalizing rules and whatnot. I posted the constituion below. If you are serious and dedicated, please let me know as we'd love to have you.
Wes' Auction Dynasty Football League for the Dedicated
Teams: 12 team H2H League
Fee: $50 for the 2008 year. Will increase fee for the following year upon unanimous vote of owners.
Scoring Rules: See scoring system in the rules for all applicable scoring rules.
Starting: 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 2 RB/TE/WR, 3 DL/DE, 3 LB, 3 CB/SS
Reserves: 16: 10 Reserves, 6 practice squad
Injury Spots: 3
Roster Lock: 5 minutes before each game for each players. Add/Drops will lock 5 minutes before the 1st game on Sundays (see rules section for exact details).
Draft: Auction Style Draft at fantasyauctioneer.com. Auction Nomination Order will be selected randomly. The Auction will have a cap of $300 which will be for the 18 starting players, 10 reserves, and any add/drops during the season, so you must use your money wisely and not spend it all at the draft.
Transaction: Unlimited add/drops. We will use a FAAB of $260 for the year for add/drops. Minimum bid will be $1. All long term contracts (2 years or more) must be made known through the league website at the time of the acqusition. If no email is sent after the player is put on the roster (after a reasonable amount of time, and for sure before the player plays in a game for the owner) the commissioner will assume a $1 contract for 1 year only. This will be final and will not change once the Commissioner assigns the contract.
Trade Vetoes: The commissioner will assign a veto committee of 4 owners, with 2 alternates to vote on all "questionable" trades. The commissioner will be the tie-breaker for a vote if necessary. Again, this committee will vote in all questionable trades in the commissioner's opinion. If the commissioner puts a trade through and an uproar occurs from the league, the commissioner reserves the right to reverse the trade if the veto committee does in fact veto it. This is to keep the league fair and in good working order, but the commissioner does not want to inhibit the trade process, but wants to protect the league from collusion and clear stupidity.
Contract Amounts: 1 5 year contract, 2 4 year contracts, 5 3 year contracts, and unlimited 1 or 2 year contracts.
Contract Rules: A player's contract value will remain the same throughout the terms of their contract. There will be no player escalations.
Once a player's contract is expired, an owner is not allowed to renew the contract. However, each owner is allowed 2 Franchise Tags. There can only be 2 franchise tags per team at any time, so it is not 2 per year, but 2 PERIOD. If the owner so wishes, he can assign the franchise tag to a player to a new 3 year contract at an increased contract value of 10% (rounded up as necessary). Once the 3 year franchise tag contract is up, that player is released and no additional franchise tag can be assigned.
No all contracts have to be signed at the time of the auction. Therefore, owners can issue long-term contracts to free agent pickups, as well as players acquired through trade. A traded player can be issued a longer contract that what the player previously had ONLY at the time of acquisition; however, a short contract length cannot be issued. Therefore, if a player with a 2 year contract is acquired through trade, the owner will have the option to issue that player a 3, 4, or 5 year contract if they have it available.
Playoffs: 2 week playof period starting week 15. The top record in each division will make the playoffs as well as the next top record in the league.
Payouts: Cost of website: $130, cost of auction, $25
1st Place: $295
2nd Place: $100
3rd Place: $50
