It's good to get paid - money league players how'd y'all do?

Including side bets, I ended up grossing about a G.

Not bragging, just killing time till next March.

Oh god damn it.....I thought my main league was for money (like it has been every year since it started up) until I found out that only three people (including me) threw money in the pot. For two glorious hours, I thought I had won a much needed $200. Then I got a message over Facebook saying "congrats on winning the league man, but i'm giving you, mike, and justin your money back since we weren't playing for money this year"

Finished 2nd and 3rd. I set a record in both leagues for the reg season. Won about $1200. Disappointing.

Two money leagues.

One I tied for the "most improved" award from the ASB to end of season - Net loss of $50

One I broke even (spots 7-12 pay a "fine" for being in the bottom half, top 3 spots get paid).

Disappointing all around considering I won over $700 in these two leagues in '07.

In my main roto league I came in first and won $200 ($50 entry), missing the first half $50 prize by 1/2 point.

My other money league ($25 entry H2H) I won $25 for the first half and $25 for 3rd place.

So net gain was $175. Not bad.

umm thats doesnt seem quite fair.

No, it most certainly doesn't. I've had a TON of things go wrong in the last couple months that really could've used that money, most recently my iPod that drowned last night.
