It's never too early to iron out details.

I've thought about this a bit and see it this way...w/o an automatic system to update bidding the logistic are nearly impossible. We appear to have 2 viable choices..1) blind auction or 2) auction the players 1 at a time. The blind auction, as tang points out, would require a non-combatant to run the draft. Being as I have no real desire left to run teams on this site, I'll run the bidding aspect of this league and not compete if you want.

we should hold out in an effort to get this off the ground before spending too much time and effort on a total redesign-

I'm all for adding a component of the blind draft, wth a list submitted
and those high bids starting the process and then a move toward the open bid system of the 8 lots or groups of players.

 The players, one at a time at a time is much much too time consuming and unweidly-  that would be longer more drawn out than a draft.

Lets continue with discussions and tweeks, but without "throwing the baby out with the dishwater"- 
the lack of an overall cohesive idea helped doom the last most recent attempt at about his point -

Count me in.

The max bid is actually $89 since you have to have at least $1 per player.

I believe putting Kareem/Moses/wilt/LBJ/Rodman on the same lot would actually help the "eBay snipping" issue tremendously, but that's my opinion. Please tell if/why I'm wrong.

Appears to be yet another great idea that dies because WIS refuses to offer anything less than 24-team NBA Leagues.

I have to think we can find 5 more teams. Keep the dream alive!

I have several owners who have made email comments and asked questions, and seem interested. 

IF enough of those enquirers committed, I think we could hit 24.
But that is a big IF....

I will redouble my efforts to finally get this off the ground and flying.

Once I get 21 - 22 I will contact the existing commitments
and make sure everyone s still on board, and we recreate some momentum.

this is not dead yet-
and I've been watching enough Zombie movies leading up to Halloween to know,
is anything ever really dead- ??
not until there is a a shot to the brain....

I will give it a try
