I hope this is the right place to post this...

My buddy and I are part of a sim league that's closing down and are looking to start one of our own. Right now we're looking at 24 teams off the bat, with the possibility of an expansion of 1 or 2 teams in subsequent years.

I'm trying to do some homework but can't seem to find any guidelines on how to get one of these leagues going. We're planning on the inaugural draft being an auction draft. League will include player salaries, contract lengths, and free agents. It'll be much like the 'be a GM' mode on NHL video games. The idea is to have some sort of committee to oversee free agent signings, trades, etc.

If anyone has done this before, knows of any handy sources, or can think of any little things one might overlook, it would be greatly appreciated!
