Question about $ leagues

Postby Yoda » Tue Sep 13, 2005 6:25 pm

How do you contribute to the pot? Ours is $100 to enter, $5 for each add or trade.

What is the size of your pot this season? Ours right now is at $3200.

The money keeper league I am in involves a $30 dollar entry fee(12 guys) and $1 is added for every add/drop or trade that a person does.

I can't remember exactly but I think are pot is somewhere around $840. 85% goes to the winner, 10% goes to 2nd place, and 5% goes to 3rd place.

i hate per-add trades. i think mine has a $30 entry fee and a $.50 fee for each add OR drop (so total $1 for droping one guy and adding another). i have no idea where the pot is, but i'm in 5th place out of 7 (inherited a crappy team. i SWEAR! :-]), so it's kinda irrelevant for this year. we give out money for 1st-4th (i think) and set aside a bit for a "most roto points over four years" prive awarded every four years.

i've got a rediculously good OF for the next few years, and if i can cobble together a staff (cain will help a TON here. ;-D), i should be in the money for the next 3 years easily.

8 guys, $40 each. $200 to the winner, $80 to 2nd, and $40 to third. Pretty simple and straightforward.

12 teams
$50 entry
25 cents per transaction (add/drop and roster changes)
Percentage cash prizes for first and second in a division and/or winning any one roto category.
The league was well-established when I joined, but it does give you a lot of different ways to work to get your money back, which is interesting.

It seems my league is a little more expensive. It's an old-school AL-only 4x4.

We have $150 entry that covers everything.

Winner gets like 950, and 5th gets consolation of like $20 or something....
