Welcome to the Auto League

Auto Leagues are seasons that last about two months, with 2 or 3 sims per day. Since this league is run with essentially no commissioner, there is a trade limit and a supplemental draft after Game 3 (more info below). Please be reasonable with your transactions, and report any bad owners using the feedback form.

League Status: Season underway.
Owners Joined: 12 of 12
League Status:
Season underway.

Owners Joined:
12 of 12


You can draft your team as soon as you sign up! You will select one player from each positional group until you have 23 players. (The Draft link appears on the league homepage and your team page when you are signed in.)

The draft only represents a random subset of players available. Once the season begins, you can adjust your roster via free agency or trades. (You can carry up to 25 players on your major league roster.)

This is NOT a keeper league, so once your team's season is over, you can stay in this league and re-draft next season, or quit and join a new Auto League.

Supplemental Draft
Once the season begins, you can start ranking players for the supplemental draft, which takes place after Game 3. Please be sure to read the League Rules for further details!

When do games start?
After all teams have an owner and have drafted, the games will begin. You will get an email after the first game notifying you that the league has started. Free agency will open after the Supplemental Draft runs on Day 4.

What time are games played?
Barring any issues with the servers, games are auto-simmed 2 or 3 times a day, starting as early as 1:00am and ending as late as 11:00pm Pacific Time. Users can sim games from the My League List page every eight hours. This allows the league to keep moving if the server has issues or the participants in the league want to move the season along slightly faster than the auto sims allow. There will always be at least eight hours between games so managers can react if desired.

Can I customize my team?
Yes! You can change your team name, logo, and more via the "Owner Console" on your "My Team" page before the season begins and up until the 5th game of the season.

World Series and post-season
Division winners and one wild card reach the post-season. Owners can leave the league once their team is elimnated, or wait until the playoffs are over and re-draft the next season.

For more info, be sure to read the League Rules.

I'm always eager to here what you enjoy or think can be improved with the site, so stay in touch via the feedback form and follow site updates on the news & notes page.

Latest Public Board Post
8/19/2014 NCAA $ rulingDwayne323
Stewbie. The thing is, and this is the second time now that I've said this in this thread, you know exactly where I stand on compensation from our pm's. Why make me keep saying it?

I'm for equal pay because I think we place far too much value on money and materialism than on the important things in life. I think we're only here for a short time and that probably this whole human consciousness thing isn't just a biological accident. I suspect we're meant to learn something while we're here, probably at the individual and species-wide level.

All that said, I live in a capitalist society so I do what I can to play the game and retain true to my beliefs. As you also know, I walked away from the easiest $150k per year art career ever because eventually I felt my integrity had become compromised as I was sort of sucking up to the .01% and playing to that audience pretty exclusively. These days I do perfectly well for myself working in that field but in a very different manner. I'm not a leech on society or lazy or whatever other phrases you might use.

As I'm in this capitalist society, and I retain an ability to have original thoughts rather than regurgitate stock phrases I hear from other sources, I can't help but be interested when I notice that the system is inconsistent. It is deeply inconsistent when it comes to athletes in our major college sports (and honestly this is true in our pro sports as well, as the CBA in basketball results in the huge superstars being underpaid relative to their actual value to a franchise and, well, the NFL is famously socialistic in terms of salary cap and revenue sharing), so that's intriguing to me. I can't help but wonder why we accept that inconsistency, and I'm happy when both public and legal opinions start leading us to a more evolved and consistent place.

As i've said since the beginning, if the schools and the NCAA weren't so obsessed with maximizing revenue through hundreds of different streams this would be largely a non-issue. But since they made it a big business the revenue producers should get a cut.

I don't believe the compensation package you refer to is sufficient because I think the biggest component -- tuition -- is a fakes component that exists primarily to protect schools from having real obligations to their players. Luckily for me, and the players, and rationality itself, the courts are beginning to see and proclaim exactly this as well. You rest so much of your argument on the value of a free education but the vast majority of major-school major-sports players are not given enough time or support to take advantage of that education.

As you're pro-capitalism, you know what financial incentivization means. The players are explicitly incentivized to focus on their athletics rather than anything else. That doesn't mean they can't get an education, just that it's a false component. (Again, the courts agree with me here.)

I addressed your other question days ago.
