the contests offer REAL MONEY prizes.
and anyone who joins a PUBLIC league should be SHOT.
public leagues are a ridiculous tragedy. people quit, make stupid trades or draft horribly and their is no skill in winning one.
National contests are boring. Nice chance to win $, but you simply pick players with a salary cap, no trading. As far as REAL $, our private league has a $2,000 prize fund, certaintly REAL. My 3 public leagues, are with a national company that began in 86, and trust me, there is some skill involved. It also awards credits for 1st and 2nd. The owner, aka commish, stops any lopsided deals. Sometimes no one quits, and sometimes a owner or 2 leaves at years end.
