Trades: Trades will be processed immediately however there will be a 3 person trade committee. When a trade occurs, if anyone has an issue with a trade, they will have 48 hours to post to the message board or email me and the committee process will begin. I will be on the committee along with the other 2 owners, who will be picked randomly prior to the season using an online dice rolling site. If 2 out of 3 of the commitee members feel the trade should be vetoed, I will reverse the trade and it will have to be redone. If 2 out of 3 feel the trade is fair, it will stand. If members of the committee are involved in the trade the team currently in 6th place will join the committee, then 5th place and then 7th respectively. The committee will have 48 hours to review the trade.
Entry Fee: $500.00 + $13.00 cbs fee= $513.00 (cbs fee is $159.99 total, so if all 12 of us pay $13, that should cover it)
LeagueSafe.com: I will be using leaguesafe.com to collect entry fees (except for cbs fees, which should be mailed to me before draft order is randomized) and payout to winners.
Prizes:1st place gets $4,200 or 70 %, 2nd place gets $1,200 or 20 % and 3rd place gets $600 or 10%

If you did a "no trade league", you would get a better response. Owners refrain from participating because of "Buddy" trades..........especially for that amount of monies in fees. Just an FYI

I don't really see having a league that allows trading as being a problem when i'm starting a league from scratch. The way I see it is, when you have a league that has been in existence for multiple years and owners are buddies with each other, then allowing trades could lead to problems. This is a new league and i'm looking for 11 owners.

Just adding a small change for the leaguesafe entry fees...Instead of every owner mailing me their $13 to cover the cost of the cbs fee, I will pay the $159.99 cbs fee and subtract $159.99 from my $513 (entry fee + cbs fee). So my entry fee will be $353.34 instead of $513.33.

This will be a a much quicker process and save me and the rest of the league time.
