Im not sure that everyone knows this, because I was duped by sporting news, that some of these money leagues you pay for may not pay you if you win because of your state. CHECK THE FINE PRINT. There are about 6-8 states that dont allow prizes to be paid out but these sites in their rules will take your money anyway if you dont read the fine print. :-[

Good advice. Always read the fine print. ;-D

They're in my other post about MLB's pay leagues. Mainly those states that consider online fantasy sports a form of lottery.

For clarification, you pay TQ stats to host your league and do the daily work for you. If you play for $ and use TQ Stats, you do it amongst the owners, not the website.
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray
