Question about Auction Drafts


Recommended Posts

I haven’t done an auction draft, so realize I have zero experience, but it seems to me that the only reason they aren’t more popular is because of the time it takes to complete.

 

My question is, why can’t an auction draft auction 3 or 4 players at a time?  I feel like there may be a reason I am not seeing due to my lack of experience, but to me it seems like this would shave hours off of auctions.

 

Thanks!

I don't even know how you would auction 3 players at a time. Do you have to keep track of 3 different timers? Would you make 1 bet for all 3 players? Would 1 person nominate all 3? 

 

I have a hard time picturing any way to do the auction with more than 1 at a time. 

 

Maybe be doing a blind auction? I'd need to know more details of how you think that would work

Could you not have teams 1-3 all nominate players, and list 3 players?  You could set it up to have at least a few seconds between each player.  You would bet on each player individually.  I feel like in today's world it wouldn't be that hard to multitask and keep track of 3 players prices at a time.

Yeah, I can never get over the people at the draft who are always like, "Let's hurry up, this is taking too long!" even at regular snake drafts.

 

Do you think you're at the dentist or something?  I axually LIKE drafting; it's the best part of the year to me--and you want to get it over with as quickly as possible?

 

Savor the draft, people!

Exactly plus guys can be GONE forever in less than 20 seconds. I'd prefer a 15-20 second buffer between pick made and auction starting

He's actually making sense here. OP's idea, however, is a bit off the wall. One player at a time on the clock. Anything else is crazy for a host of reasons.

They're pretty popular, especially if you're playing for money.

 

People like having a bit more control over who they can select.

Draft is the best day of the year for me as well.
