2011 Auction Stars Fantasy Football Money League (Inaugural Season)

After receiving several emails and seeing the interest in the other two paid leagues I thought it would be fun to start a new Auction draft style league. I have sent emails out to the owners of the other league I run inviting them to play. This will be a money league but the dues will only be $16 in this inaugural season of the league.

Only join if you can send payment via paypal and can make the Auction Draft which is set for Saturday Aug 27 5:00pm EASTERN/2:00pm PACIFIC.

Entry fee is $16 via paypal to avidsd at gmail dot com (insert at symbol and dot of course).

Please do not mention Fantasy Football in your payment. Just get creative in your description and include your dvdtalk user name so I know what team you are.

e.g. Thanks for the new Zorbonaut CD, it rocks!

Prize Structure

1st- $90
2nd- $40
3rd- $20


I really only want active participants who respond to trade requests, check the waiver wire, and play until the end of the season regardless of record.




Teams

The Crackasmokas- raven56706 paid
Straight Cash Homey- Daryl paid
Bieber's Brawlers- pedagogue paid
There Will Be Blood- U6C84 paid

Re: 2011 Auction Stars Money League (Inaugural Season)

Hopefully we get some more people interested in this league. I joined my first auction league last season and it's a nice change of pace from the standard drafts.

Agreed. For those who are hesitant to try out the Auction Draft Style I recommend giving it a try for at least one season.

Re: 2011 Auction Stars Money League (Inaugural Season)

I would love to join, but I have a live draft at 5 pm pacific on that day. From my previous experiences, auction drafts take quite a while. Would this finish within an hour and a half?

Re: 2011 Auction Stars Money League (Inaugural Season)

Don't know for sure about the length but if the other owners agree I would be open to moving the time up a bit or even moving it to Sunday.

How about everyone else?

Re: 2011 Auction Stars Money League (Inaugural Season)

I'm fine with a time move. Since there are still only five people signed up for the league, maybe making it a free league for the first year would get more people interested.

I really don't want to go the free route as it usually makes he league a little less competitive especially toward the end of the year.

Great! Go ahead and join at yahoo.

I'll look at the draft times when I'm home from work. I'm going to try and generate some interest here at work as well. Feel free to ask coworkers, friends or family.

Re: 2011 Auction Stars Money League (Inaugural Season)

I'd be interested in joining the league but I can't draft on the 27th. If you could make it a different day, I can join.

Re: 2011 Auction Stars Money League (Inaugural Season)

Well, thanks to me quitting a league due to a shady commish on a power trip, I now have an empty void to fill in my fantasy football life. If you're still looking for owners, I'll play. If you're full or if adding me gives you an odd number of owners - I understand - early bird gets the worm.

Re: 2011 Auction Stars Money League (Inaugural Season)

Glad to see more interest. Changed draft time up 1 hour to 5pm Eastern/2pm Pacific as discussed earlier. Since we have enough interest we will stick with the 27th date though (sorry Scott27).

So far we have 9 owners listed below. Need at least one more owner but would love 3 owners. Those who are still interested can still join!

The Crackasmokas- raven56706
Straight Cash Homey- Daryl
Bieber's Brawlers- pedagogue
There Will Be Blood- U6C84
Booze Hounds
Frosty's Donutmen
Nacho Knights
Gridiron Law
Zorbonauts

Re: 2011 Auction Stars Money League (Inaugural Season)

Now that Munchos is in we have an even number of teams so I locked the teams at 10 for now. If we get two more teams willing to join I will unlock and let both join. If not we will go with 10 for the first year of this Auction League.

Please post in the thread if you want to join because at this point I would have to unlock the teams to allow someone else to join.

I may have a co-worker that would join if we get another to make it 12.

Very excited that we have so much interest in this format.

Just missing payments from the following owners:


Straight Cash Homey- Daryl
Bieber's Brawlers- pedagogue
There Will Be Blood- U6C84
