I am a member and co-commissioner for 2 awesome leagues in the Bronx, NY. League fee is $595 per league. Here are the details:
1. Each league has 17 teams. (Both league have 15 teams right now)
2. It’s a non-keeper league so everyone is on an even playing field.
3. Our trading rule prevents collusion. We call it the ’Shopping rule’. It’s about a two page long rule with many parts to prevent loopholes. Here are the highlights:
a) After a trade is completed and posted by both teams, the trade goes on the clock for 24 hours.
b) At that time, the whole league can give counter offers to both teams on the trade in which counter offers can be accepted. Another 24 hour period would begin then.
c) A committee of three can be summoned by another owner if he feels his counter offer was not accepted and it was obviously a better deal.
4. Auction dates are Sunday, March 25 at 3PM and Friday, March 30 at 7PM.
We were one league about five years ago but have expanded to two leagues because of the interest and the fact owners do not often leave the league.
