Join my league for nice adults!

Recommended Posts

So, every year I try to find a good second league.  Every year I end up with a league that goes down in flames because people are unpleasant.  I am going to try to solve this problem by creating my own second league this year!  Here are some questions for you:

1)  Do you think insulting others is fun?

2)  Do you think the best part of fantasy baseball is trading three bench players to the player in the league who knows the least for their underperforming first round pick?

3)  Do you have the attention span of a caffeinated monkey and abandon leagues after a month?

If you answered yes to any other above questions, this is not the league for you!

In this league, because we are nice:

1) If you behave rudely I will remove you with no refund.  

2) No trading.  People can't help themselves and can't accurately evaluate their own offers for fairness.  I have seen too many leagues explode because of this.

In this league, because we are adults:

1)  Set rosters weekly because we have lives, jobs, families, children, ...

2)  Have a limited acquisition budget of 100 with no 0 cost moves.  No time to have to keep up with someone's roster shenanigans.

3)  Process moves once per week so that we don't have to be thinking about waivers every minute of every day.

4)  Have lots of DL slots so that if injuries strike you can remove competitive.

5) Pay out to the top half of the league at the end.  No one is trying to get rich here, so let's have an incentive to keep everyone engaged and competitive.

Now, with the most important parts out of the way ...

I'm thinking $50 entry fee.  Once we have enough people we can discuss whether we want to do LeagueSafe or not.  I'm happy to do so, but don't like the cut they take.  All money collected will be paid out.
