Just how do you plan to do this? It would take months via forum...

Not at all. We did a 12 team last year and it only took us about 2 weeks. You nominate a player and the player is awarded after there are no bids for 24 hours on that player. The manager who was awarded that player will then nominate the next player. When you reply to the threads you just need to put your team and the remaining dollar values associated with your team at the bottom of your thread.

how many rounds?

24 hours per player (minimum) x 12 players per round x 14 rounds(?) = 4,032 hours or 168 days or over 5 months.

I'm all for trying it, but Auctions take forever even when everybody is in the same room never mind when you have to wait hours for a bid.

There aren't any rounds in auction drafts. In a 12 team auction draft, usually 12 players get put up at the beginning (each owner puts up 1 player). Then like eagles said, after a player is won, that owner puts up another player...so there are always 12 players up for auction at the same time. ;-D

Here's the link to last years mock auction. Looks like it took about a month:

Yeah, it is really fun. There are always 12 players up for auction at the same time. It really is not "annoying" or "too lengthy" IMO. I really enjoyed it last year and hope we can do it again. I don't care if we only get 10. Lets get some names on this list!!!!!

Count me in eagles. I think it is a gat resource for auctioneers. I can re-iterate that it ran smoothly last year and really didn't seem to drag.

I see, this makes more sense. The 12 players up at a time was what I wasn't getting.
