    There does not seem to be a buy in which would mean that prizes are unlikely unless we coordinate one on the league webpage.

    We should have the prize be a perfume up to 200$ value. Depending how many teams there are it could be around $20 each. I think it will add to the fun of the league.

    I agree. However, having run leagues before it can be impossible to get people to pay, particularly when, in all likelihood, no one has ever met before. I'd be open to each of us voluntarily providing something to the winner whether that be something from our collections or a gift card.

    I'd also be open to each of us voluntarily contributing a mutually agreed upon buy in for a prize to the league winner...This is something the league commissioner can coordinate.

    how many so far and how to pay?

    post #9 of 17
    I'm all for having this be a pay league but there was no mention of that when the league was set up.

    If dues are required payment should be made to a third party site like leaguesafe.com which allows all owners to vote on distribution. This makes sense due to the fact that, in all likelihood, we don't know one another. Frankly, this is the only way I'll pay my entry fee.

    At the moment it looks like there are 5 more spots.

    No trying to be critical here...I've just been involved in fantasy sports for 20+ years...

    This is a great idea and I'd like to play, but would not be interested in paying cash. I like the idea of contributing something of value, though, and so propose a system where the participants jockey for position to obtain decants from the other players. Perhaps something like this (assuming a 12-team league):

    Winner - gets one "X" (whether value or volume) decant from each other player

    Runner up - gets one "X minus Y" decant from each other player except winner

    Third - gets one "X minus Y" decant from each other player except winner and second

    Fourth - gets one "X minus Y" decant from each other player except winner, second, and third

    Fifth through Twelfth - the winner of each playoff game gets a "Z" decant from his/her opponent

    We'd have to work out some details, but this could be fun.

    Let me know your thoughts. FYI, I have been playing fantasy football for several years now and enjoy it, as well as the associations with the other team owners, tremendously.
