There was none of this last minute bidding and deadline extension. My main issue with it was that (it seemed to me) to promote overpaying for guys. I think thats easy to get around though. Just make it so the winner only has to pay the 2nd highest bid plus the minimum increment.
I agree for the most part with this. The problem with the live bidding for this season is the rule you have to hold the top bid for 24 hours to win the player. not a good fit with the time crunch. If we did live bidding, it would have to be done like this(just an example): at midnight eastern post all players up for auction that day. then the top bids at midnight eastern the next day win the player, regardless if they got the winning bid in at 11:59 pm. the 24 period would start at the timestamp on the site for the last player posted. then rinse and repeat the next day.
or you could do the same thing, but say the bidding runs for 48 hours for each group of 20 or 25 players.
