I enjoyed the auction experience. Any player can come off the board at any moment, so you have to stay on your toes. If you target the players you really like, the only thing that can stop you from getting them is other bidders. And, most importantly, I had fun doing the online draft with a bunch of strangers (they were a chatty group with no knuckleheads, so that was a plus). It would be a blast to do an auction draft with friends, something I'm going to try to set up next summer.
