Hey boys - I'm really dreading my 8 hour trip for this years auction. Dan (Polk) has agreed in principle to running my auction for me, so long as the league approves.
Here are my reasons why this should be okay:

1. Dan's team is 95% complete.  Where I plan on making moves should not conflict with his strategy at all, and therefore, him knowing my plan should not give him a competitive edge.

2. I am only going after 7-8 players. Of the 7-8 players, only 2 are going to cost me more than 1 million. This means I am primarily targeting back up players (which should explain my lack of excitement for this drive.) I am comfortable sharing with EVERYONE that I will spend more than 1 million on a linebacker, and will spend at least a few million at running back. This basically gives you the intel Dan is going to have.

3. I am one of the most active players in the league. My commitment cannot be questioned. This will not become the norm. I am already very excited for next year's auction draft, where the talent pool really opens up and I'll have way more money.

Does anyone oppose this? If so, can you dispel any of the points I've made?

Hope you guys are understanding here. Cheers.

I don't have an issue with it.  If anything it puts you at a disadvantage.  However if possible I would like a compensatory pick for the time it took to read your lengthy explanation. :-P

Hey Joey I just got off of the phone with Jeremy and your post actually resolved one issue.  He was thinking of having the auction in the Toronto area but since you are not going to be able to make the draft we will just keep it in Essex County. :-P

awesome boys, I appreciate it. Also appreciate the idea of Toronto, but that won't be necessary :-P

Joey I forgot that I tested out a script last year that supports our auction.  It's a little bit of work on the commissioners end (or whoever is updating the page <_< ) but it could be an option for you.  You would be able to follow the bids online and then pass when it's your turn.  We will be using it for another league where one guy can't make it.  If it works there then it should work for you.

Yes I’d love to be involved I just can’t get excited to do the drive this year.
