The way I see it, we should continue on with the auction process for the next group of players as they come up. I really don't think anyone needs that much time to update rosters and salaries and such. Even those who are maintaining the league pages seem to be keeping them pretty current. If the pace was too much for them, I'm sure they would have said something by now.
I would suggest DR look through the list of upcoming players, and if there's anyone he wants to try and bid for, he can simply forward instructions to another manager to bid on his behalf, preferably someone who has little cap space remaining, or someone who won't be targeting that player (or players). There might be one or two guys on that list that everyone
would want, but I'm sure DR could find a manager who wouldn't
be able to bid on those players simply because they no longer have enough funds. And it's as simple as posting "On behalf of Da Ruhl...[bid]".
I mean, the only other alternative I would be satisfied with would be going to a 24hr clock, as DR himself mentioned. At least then, we could keep the auctions going, and still give DR a fighting chance to get internet access and place a bid or two.
Otherwise, stopping the auctions completely makes no sense to me. And honestly, you do it once, then you have to do if for everybody. "Hey, I can't do league business this week, I'm going on a family vacation", or "Hey, I'll be taking the weekend off to work at a charity event...can you suspend all the auctions until I get back?" I'm not trying to single DR, or anyone else, out - but it's a dangerous precedent to set, once we start doing stuff like this. As it is, we're already "bending" the rules to accommodate the newbie's inexperience in league bidding and such. And we've already stalled league business once before this season because of someone's travel time. It just so happened to be convenient that the timing worked out perfect. But what if it had been three weeks later? Or worse yet, coming up here in October?
And the more scarier question should be what's next for us to break or bend? Oh, someone "accidentally" went over the hard cap, but we're going to just ignore it, fix it, and let it slide this time?
Oh wait, that's happened too, right?
