Auction related actions

Filed under: General — Awrr @ 11:35 am

With the expansion draft behind us and the first auction date nearly on top of us, there are important announcements concerning our auction (which is set to begin this Thursday).

First, keeper lists are due in two days. They must be turned in by Thursday, March 23 at 9AM PST. Turning them in before then is perfectly fine.

There is a specific note on the format of your keepers email to make things easier to sort out:


Player 1’s name (Salary)
Player 2’s name (Salary)

Total salary kept: $__
Total salary available: $__

A reminder: Salary available is not $260 minus kept. It is $280 minus kept. Bench spots are integrated into the auction, and an additional $20 is provided.

Second announcement: To make things easier on a number of people as well as saving costs on an auctioneer, Steve wants us to consider using FantasyAuctioneer. Click here for a link to the demo/test that they provide. It works great for me (WinXP, Java 2 v1.5, Firefox v1.5.0.1), and it looks like the guys that have used it before like it a lot. If you have troubles with the demo or other concerns, email Kevin or comment here.



  1. I have already told Kevin and Steve that I cannot use Fantasy Auctioneer. This is the first year it will even work with Mac’s and it will only work with the newest Operating Systems which I don’t have. The upgrade is well over 100 bucks and I can’t put that into my comp when I don’t need it for any other reason. Brad can’t do weekday auctions so it has to be me and I cannnot use FA. Sorry.

  2. Am I the only person surprised to read in the original message that the auction actually starts tomorrow (I’m posting on Wednesday night)? I must have missed the announcement that it was happening (and whether we were using AIM in view of Keith’s concerns above, or something else). What have I missed?

  3. My mistake, Larry. The auction is on hold until the FantasyAuctioneer issues are resolved. Sorry about that.

  4. Not a problem…just happy to hear it.
