    Given the tight trade window, please keep auctions snappy!

    Auction rules:
    1. All players or picks to be auctioned should be listed with a closing day/time.
    2. All players or picks being auctioned cannot be pulled before that day/time.
    3. No asset being auctioned should be the subject of private trade negotiations nor used as part of a bid in another auction, until the auction of the asset has reached it's conclusion/closing time, with or without a sale.
    4. Stating a reserve, or a preferred return type for the auctioned asset is voluntary.
    5. The reserve is not reached on any asset until the seller says so.
    6. Once a reserve has been reached the seller has the option to adjust the auction length, but to no less than 48 hours, or the end of the trade period, whichever is the lesser.
    7. As soon as practical after receiving multiple bids on an asset the seller should indicate whom is in front, any reasoning is optional.
    8. All auctions are final and irreversible unless via subsequent mutually agreed trade.
    9. Once a bid is tabled the bid is live until rejected OR deemed beaten by the person conducting the auction, it cannot be materially altered once tabled.
    10. No bid can be conditional on outcomes not directly related to the auction at hand.

    Please let me know if the following is kosher allowing for the very short trade period

    The Nuffers list for auction as a package Charlie Dixon as well as the Nuffers 2021 PSD 4th Rounder (most likely late 50's - early 60s)

    Closing time is 630pm Sunday 19th July (a few hours before the deadline) pre-auction an indicative reserve is a 2021 PSD 2nd rounder but feel free to try your luck with a bid wherever you value the great man and not so great draft pick

    1 high draft pick in the 2021 PSD will be favoured over multiple lower picks but all bids including players will also be considered on relative merits
    (nb it is ok to bid the Nuffers 2021 PSD 4th Rounder as part of package of picks and/or players being offered by a bidder - which effectively makes the other parts of the bid a direct bid for Dixon)

    Bid away

    You are ok to bundle a player and a pick together as far as I am aware

    in the ballpark but given the ladder position of the hoppers it falls short of reserve

    I suspect the auction timing may not be great for the Hoppers but thanks for providing a strong opening bid

    3 hours remaining ORFFAns

    Thanks Snoz - no material improvement on the first offer given that's probably pick 106-108 and I would hope to use a maximum of 5 picks in the psd

    therefore bid does not meet reserve (still extremely close)

    1 hour remaining

    Warriors bid their 2nd round PSD pick + 4th round PSD.

    Realize things are tight, but being overseas just made the deadline.

    The Warriors bid is considered as an improvement and takes the lead @TerryinBangkok

    @dmandrews (fyi improvement based on expected ladder position rather than current)
    @Fitzy @snoz

    18 minutes gentlemen

    In the end the Nuffers have favoured the Warriors bid. @TerryinBangkok
    Thanks to @Fitzy @dmandrews and @snoz for bidding

    additional thanks to the 4 of you for restoring my faith in the ORFFA auction system after previous sub-par returns

    Good result.

    True forwards are a lottery. Big bag one week and nothing the next. You need 2 or 3 to balance this out and a regular heart rate. Conversely, if you have a couple of F/Ms like Whitfield, Walters, etc. life is a lot less exciting. :D

    I guess I forfeit my 3rd round MSD pick so I have the required final numbers?

    And thanks TTH. Way, way back I kicked off the auction system - glad to see it still adds a bit to our game.
