Mock Draft Discussion

Postby joejlitz » Fri Jun 22, 2012 4:40 am

Please use this thread ONLY for draft discussion and analysis - who reached, who overlooked an obvious pick, who do you think just got a steal. Use the Miscellaneous Chatter thread when someone's time limit has expired, someone chooses a player already drafted, you are going to be away and need an alternate, someone is mentioning names of players who have yet to be drafted, etc.

Draft has begun.

First "round" will last 48 hours.

That means everyone has 48 hours to sign in and create the first thread, nominating a player. Please see my Randall Cunningham example.

Initial bids will also last 48 hours.

After 1000 CST on Monday, the clock changes to 24 hours.

So right now, Indi has the leading bids on 3 players - $12 on Tom Brady, $20 on MJD, and $25 on Megatron for a total of $57.

Remember, the most that you can bid at any one time is $200 (until you start winning players) on the whole and $186 on any one player.

I don't know if anyone is going to do that, but I wanted you'se to know that me and Thrifty will be watching for this. Please count your money carefully and bid only what you are allowed.

Thanks! ;-D

Would it make sense to add a max bid item when we go in and update our rosters? MIght be helpful in the nomination process if I know how much each owner has left in the kitty.

Yup. He's got until 1000 CST tomorrow to make a nomination or it goes to an alt. It's the first day and we didn't advertise a starting date, so it's not too surprising that someone missed. That's why I thought 48 hours was fair for the first play.

Just so I got this straight...

The first "round" of players nominated, its going to take up to 48 hours WITH NO BID, in order for a owner to win that player correct?

And after this first "round" of players have all been accounted for, the 24 hour clock will then be set. After 24 hours with no bid, then that player would be won to highest bid.

Is that right or am I way off?
