A proposition....

Postby yankmyrings » Fri Feb 19, 2010 12:27 am

I see so many owners out here trying to fill their leagues with quality people and I feel sorry for them because I share in their pain. One of the hardest things to do in this game is get good managers that will play to win within the confines of the rules, all while interacting with the rest of the community in a peaceable, sportsman like manner.

I am one of those owners. Your league will be better for having me in it. I have made this proposition for the last 2 seasons and have yet to get someone to take me up on it. I have to admit this is more than a little surprising.

I will join any league and pay all applicable fees TODAY in exchange for the commissioner of that league agreeing to do the same for me TODAY. There is a little more to it than just that. I won't send my money to some guy's random Paypal account and hope he does the right thing with it. Your league has to be set up on http://www.leaguesafe.com or another fantasy league money escrow service such as http://www.fantasysportsvault.com. I will pay up to $100 in entry fees TODAY as long as 100% of your fees go into the payout-just like my league. I am hoping to get more than one offer so I can peruse different settings to choose my league BUT I AM NOT PICKY-Roto, H2H, 6x6, 18x18, Auction, I really don't care. I will be a great owner in your league, regardless of the settings. I want someone to help me keep my passion going....That is running my league in my favorite sport as I have done since 2005.

I will only reply to those who have managed to read this far and post an e-mail address ON THIS BOARD for me to reply to. I will e-mail you all my league's info along with an invite to LeagueSafe AND my Yahoo league. Thanks for your consideration....

Nice post, i think the Cafe should use that as some kind of "motto" to live by....But honestly.....well said...

I echo that and am a highly competitive-active owner. I am STILL looking for that league started from the ground up with quality owners...I have yet to find one that can be taken seriously. The search is on...I prefer to play FREE leagues, based on being burnt numerous times...I prefer leagues with 14+teams. I am ready to be one of the best managers in your league..... ;-D
