Hey here's the league I'm starting let me know if you're interested
Looking to get 14 teams, Rotisserie with standard 5x5 categories (AVG HR RBI R SB W SV K ERA WHIP) The rest of the Settings are at bottom.
The league will be a Yahoo League and the buy in will be 100 dollars and we will be using the website www.Leaguesafe.com
to hold the money.
LeaguesSafe is a site that has been made with in the last 2 years that puts the money in an FDIC Insured Bank account and at the end of the season the payouts are made. It was created by some people that are over at Fanball.com
There was an article in the Wall Street Journal online ( http://online.wsj.com/public/article/SB ... 37773.html
) and was honored by winning the "Best Innovation" award ( http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123187746819378309.html
). This is much safer than paying money to a random person and "Trusting" the money will be paid out. (I am, However asking for a 25 dollar commissioner fee for all the work.) You pay with e-check or credit card and winnings are sent with e-check, paper check, or pre-loaded visa that will work at any ATM.
I'm also looking to possibly making it a keeper league with 4 keepers a year so we can continue the league for a couple years, but we can discuss that later, we could just redraft ever year. Also if you're not looking to stay in the league for over a year thats cool too.
The reason I'm doing this is that I was looking to get into a money league, but none of my friends are willing to dish out 100 dollars to play. Also, I like playing on Yahoo and don't want to switch over to another site. I've also played in a keeper league the past 3 years and the commisioner recently decided he didn't want to run it anymore.
About Me: I'm a regular guy, 20 years old, in college. I've been playing since I was pretty young, I used to play the FullCount version over at Sandbox.com until it started costing money. I've been playing on Yahoo since 2004 (So about a fourth of my life), and I'm very competive. If you have any questions email me. I also have a facebook too so if you're sure you're going to join the league you can friend me so we can keep in touch. If you have any other questions email me.
Please Only Seriously Competetive Owners, should check league atleast everyday or every other day. It would be cool to have other college guys in the league, but everyone is welcome. Competition to enter league will be plentiful, please email me ASAP if you want to join so I can reserve a spot. Once Yahoo adds the game I will give you the league id# and password. Your team however will be locked until payment is made.
