In my main 12-team keeper league it's $100 entry fee and $1 per combined add/drop. The guys in it are pretty competetive, so there's add/drops practically every single day, sometimes 8-10 of 'em.

Got another 12-team keeper league that has a $60 entry fee with .50 per add/drop.

There's something about that magic number of $100 that kicks a league into being super-competetive. Not sayin' there aren't cheaper leagues where this is so, but it's tough to find a league of $100 or over where it's not intense.

$100 buy in, 12 team league. We play with percentages, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Also we pay extra money to the person with the most points for, and best record (not a roto league, points league) VERY competetive.

I don't play in money leagues. I would rather make my money playing poker. ;-D

So this post here is one of the reasons I started this thread.

I have always wondered what the correlation between a "VERY competitive" league, and the amount of money in that league is.

I quite often stumble on posts where people say "...but in my BIG money league...," it always had me wondering if a certain amount of money turns it into a highly competitive league.

So I guess what i am also after is what do you guys define as a "competitive league."

Now I never posted how much I put into my league, so here it is...

I told a friend I would join a league to help him out. $20 dollar buy in $0 transaction fees, 8 team H2H. I do check it once a week but, as my place in the standing suggests, I just don't care about that team. I invest so much into my main team I have very little left to offer.
Main league is 10 team roto league with weekly h2h kicker to give the guys at the bottom a reason to keep playing. $250 buy in, transactions are $10 a piece, weekly fine handed out when your players do too well.

The pot will have $5000-$6000, by the end.

I define it as highly competitive because the owners and league have been around for 20+ years, I am the new kid on the block. No one will trade EVER because they all worry about getting screwed, and its about as cut throat as it gets.

But by gosh its the most fun I have all year, and quite honestly if I didn't have the chance to win money I would still pay for the oppurtunity to play ;-D
