Hey all!

Please make sure to read through this - we are testing out new auction settings and would love feedback before we put up another auction.

Two big notes...

Because slow auctions don't allow nomination limits, we are trying the 60 player board with a 5 player nomination limit. I don't love it, but it's the rule we have for now and would love feedback on it. This means no team can have more than 5 of their nominated players up at a time.

ALSO, the $1000 is for the auction and blind bidding during the season. So you can look at it as $900 and $100. Or whatever you want. You are free to enter the season with no blind bidding money if you prefer to spend it in auction.

The auction is set to start tomorrow at 10AM EST.

You are now able to trade 2021 picks and auction dollars (as blind bidding dollars). You can trade before, during, and after the draft. Trades process automatically, so contact me via this email as quick as possible for a trade or pick mistake. If you feel there is collusion, contact me. That means more than just a bad trade. Bad trades happen and people have their own values for things.

If you trade a 2021 1st round pick, you must pay for 2021. Do it when it happens otherwise your rights get removed the next day.

The startup auction includes rookies. A reminder, if a player is not in the system, we can't add them. We are at the mercy of MFL's player pool and designations. MFL will likely add them later when drafted, then they will be available.

Slow auction drafts will use the MFL auction module for the initial player distribution auction.

The league will allow a max of 60 players to be up for auction on the board. Each team can only nominate 5 players at a time. Once one of the players you nominated leaves the board, you can nominate a new one. The auction will take 10-21 days to complete. You are not required to nominate, you may also nominate as many players as you want as long as you stay within your roster and budget limit of $1000 (listed as blind bidding dollars in some places).

The $1000 auction/blind bidding dollars is all you get for the year. If you do not save any money, you can not bid on free agents during the year and will need to make $0 bids.

On the extremely rare case you end the auction over your limit, the last players you acquired will be dropped from your roster until you are under your limit and those players can be re-auctioned. You will have $0 blind bidding dollars going forward.

The timer for the slow auction will be set at 16 hours and use a proxy style bidding (ebay style). The timer will reset upon a change in high bidder.

Because there is no way to roll back an auction bid to the previous owner, all bids are final. If you make a mistake it cannot be undone. Be VERY careful when making bids!!!

You are NOT required to field a full roster or but not necessarily a valid starting lineup. You must, however, have a valid starting lineup for week 1.

Nominations will not be allowed after 21 full days. The auction is over at that point or if the board completely empties.

Trading of auction money (blind bidding dollars) will be allowed during the startup.

You must stay within your roster limit at all times. It is a hard limit. If you offer a trade, it’s wise to make the players even by including the player you ould drop. If you are drafting and your roster is full; you must either drop a player and pick a new one, trade the pick, let your timer expire, or have the commissioner skip your pick.

As always in these leagues, the BEST way to get a hold of me is this email. If you make a mistake (trade, pick, etc), contact me as fast as possible via email (safeleagues@gmail.com).  We all know accidental picks and accidental button pressing accept happens, especially while on the phone. Best to fix it immediately. If too much time passes I won't be able to fix.

Just a tip... some of the more active leagues set up a groupme or similar messaging thing for leaguemates. Usually someone in the league makes one.

Hope all is well and have fun!
