Ok, probably get fined somehow for this since I am sure I have read all this several times but what the Hell. It's been a long few weeks and the 4th is almost upon us. I am sure many will be trying to refocus after Tuesday's celebrations and then BAM its draft time on the 6th. So just looking for a little refresher course.

1. Bylawss states draft will be held on MFL.
From the bylawys 00. Initial Draft (section to be removed after draft occurs)
b) All bids must be placed on the MFL website.
So, we select players and bid there? When I go there now and select a player, there is an option to add player.
Is this the place we will bid? Just tryimg to be familiar with the process. As also the BYLAWS states there will be a thread on the message board.

2. Also do we have to nominate players before we can bid.
According to Bylaws we "may" bid on 3 but I was thinking I had read elsewhere that you "MUST" nominate players before you could bid on other owner's nominations.
BYLAWS read" "Each team may have 3 nominees up for auction at a time and a thread will be set up on the message board for the teams to update to keep this system working smooth."

Thanks

1. You can nominate through For Owners > Auction Bid

2. You must nominate 3 players before you bid on others. If I remember correctly, once your nominated players are won, you can nominate more.

Not sure what the message board part is about, but maybe Carla, Matt or Andy can shed some light on that.

Thanks Andy.  I will ask my question now too.

Minor league has no practice squad.  We START 22 players according to bylaws (11/11).  We can have up to 90, but with no practice squad we really don't need that.  We have 1,000 auction bucks for draft use only.  Is it up to us the size of our bench for bye weeks and backups?  Our roster just really is loosely based on 22-90 players and we have $1,000 to spend to make that happen?

That is correct on my understanding and you have a cap of 120 years

Yup on all that. I removed the ability for you fuckers to add/drop/trade/IR until the auction is over. While it says you "may" nominate up to 3 players (36 for the conference), it is expected you all will do so as much as possible to keep the auction moving. If multiple people jerk us around and won't nominate all that will be accomplished is that Carla will change it to 36 auctions on a FCFS basis and anyone who would like to whine about not being able to nominate will be pointed at those who couldn't handle the epic responsibility of nominating 3 players.

Hope this helps. Carla will give official info soon I am sure. Gotta run.

The Auction process has it's own hub in the aforementioned "auction bid". You'll get a list of all the players currently up for auction, their current high bid and at the bottom you can add players to the auction. I'm in the middle of one right now and this will give you a bit of insight into the interface.

I'm sure a thread will be started on the message board for general discussion regarding the draft/auction bids and allowing those of us in the peanut gallery to critique mock you guys.

Ross has posted a nice view of the screens you should expect to see. The bidding will begin on the MFL message board. There will be a nomination thread here on the site as well (more to come on that soon) this will help owners keep track of their 3 nominations.

If you would like a peanut gallery thread feel free to make one or I can but watch player chatter while the bidding is in progress.

Like Andy said it is intended for owners to have 3 nominations on the board at all times (of course once a player comes off you may need time to notice and nominate) but if this remotely gets out of hand you will lose the privilege of the guarantee nomination process....that is worse than you think. You will want the option to nominate as there is strategy in that process.

You will not want one team who is always online making all the nominations. Trust me they will love it, and you will begin to hate it. This is your auction keep it that way.

I am considering a start time of 7 am (EASTERN) for the auction to begin.

Why? I arrive at work at 7 am and I am one of the only people in the office until 8. It is the way I operate ....love beginning my day earlier than everyone. I can watch the auctions start better than way. It also should allow folks across the pond and in many timezones a chance to make their nominations on the first day timely.

Hopefully everyone will nominate 3 during the first 5 hrs the auction starts.

I have only done auction drafts for lesser sports. This will be my first for football, but I assume it will be quite similar.

I've never done an auction for another sport but I would also assume they are all similar. An auction like this you wanna lock onto your players, put your elbows up and make sure you bring them home, budget be damned, bid'm all and let god sort it out ;) lol

There will be 2 threads- one to keep track of nominations, and one peanut gallery.

Also, don't fuck this up. Having FCFS nominations really sucks for anyone who is not glued to their computer 24/7

Having done a lot of ffb auctions and strongly support the limit of 3 nominations per team at any given time...helps with participation and more importantly gives everyone equal part in shaping the auction...and most importantly to you newbies....PKs are always hot positions to fill early, so make sure one of your nominations includes a pk......this guy in particular will be a #1...

or will it be this guy


Oh...that last guy was in the 72' auction.......... dizzy

I usually do 1 or 2 auctions a year. They are unique and I like them. I'm not an expert but MFL has a great auction system IMO.

One trick on MFL- if you put an extra '0' after the amount you want to bid you are much more likely to win the auction.

Done that many a time in salary cap leagues where you need to bid in increments of 25000. Absolute nightmare trying to count the zeros.

Yep, it'll definitely work on mobile. I did an auction bestball draft earlier this year almost entirely on my phone. And I'm sure I'll be doing the same for this league.

Matt,

Try using this link.  

http://newjerseydads.com/community-assistance/

I've used something like this in several other leagues and people have been able to access the site at work even with a filter.

I can also link directly to particular pages, i.e. auction page, etc. if anyone prefers.

I will remove it once the auction is complete so Andy doesnt get hives from me messing with things

I don't see any auction tab, is anyone else seeing it?

Also when going to "for owners", "auction bid" it won't allow you to go to the bid screen which I would expect, but it does say they're is no auction event on the calendar. It's been a minute since I did a MFL auction, is there supposed to be a calendar event for this in the league?
