not a complaint, but I popped in to make my nomination and see one has already been done for me. Not a huge deal, but I am still with in my 24 hours and a defense was nominated for me, I already have one and surely don't want two.

That was a mistake. I blame the Bloody Mary.

Go ahead and make another nomination.

Perfectibilist

10:08 Active bids:

Beanie 6
Young 6
Spiller 14

Total 26

Money left: 26 Players to be rostered: 5

guys, don't forget that you need to save 1 buck for each roster spot. If all three won, will be outta money with 2 spots to fill.

Just out of curiousity...what happens if no one else bids on those players? Does he have to remove a bid now or after one of the players is won?

I think the last bid he made, that put him over his limit, is removed until he has enough cash flow to support the rest of his roster. There is supposed to be a 2% penalty but I think we scrapped that since it is just for fun. Getting interesting now. I was waiting for that Colston pick to be thrown out there.

Good catch, Dolfan.

This is just for fun and has been fun, but we need to keep it fair. Dolfan outbid PB so that leaves him with two remaining bids:
Young: 6
Spiller: 14

He is now under his cap, but incurs a 2% penalty. With the penalty, PB now has $25 remaining with $20 in bids on two players and 5 players left to acquire. He is now "legal."

PB - please update your roster information to reflect your new remaining account balance.

Do we have any writers in this group that would be willing to do a write-up? It could be a summary of the draft, or maybe even more interesting - what it was like to do your first auction, things to be careful of, etc. I know we had some really high bids on RBs that we wouldn't get in most auctions. That might make for an interesting segment in a story.
