This past year I played in an Ottoneu league and had a blast with it.  Unfortunately, it appears that league is disbanding but I would LOVE to get another one going that actually has a chance of lasting more than one year. 

 

It is a fun format that does a good job of balancing big league and minor league players, it discourages picking up and dropping players every day/week to balance those with a lot of time and those with not so much time.  It is a points league so no head-to-head matchups and Tommy mopped the floor with the rest of us this year.

 

It does cost $10 a year to play but, for me, it was worth it (and I am horribly cheap when it comes to online stuff/phone apps).  Anyone have interest in it?

Same question and I'd be interested if I knew anything more about it.

Soooooooooooooo, I'm kind of fired up by this.  Did you have a timeline?  I think the most challenging part is to plan an auction that 12 people can attend.  I cannot after the 19th of March.  I know it's a long ways away, but just sayin'.

I think the thing with an aution is you don't all have to be present like a draft,  its kinda of like ebay you make bids within an alloted timeframe.  So it should be easier to organize.
