Ive only played once and it was kinda fun. Anyone running a money league? If not, we should start one.

whatever the price is (not over 50), is good for me. Im too new at this to be throwing around money. i just want to keep the season interesting. It seems like the NBA is exciting for the first 2 games, then i hibernate until playoffs hahaha

How about 30 to join with 1 dollar transactions just to keep it interesting? I think this league would be fun since none of us are NBA fantasy gurus.

I think you know where I stand on transaction fees...

One thing I do want to point out is that in an NFL league you can realistically go through an entire successful season without making any moves (as long as you draft backup TE, K, and DST). In an NBA league, what with the long season, its nearly impossible. May I suggest an alternative? A transaction CAP, with either a max weekly transaction limit (e.g. 2-3 per week), or a seasonal limit (say 40-50). How does that sound?

Hey guys, im going to need your info and input by this Saturday so I can set up the league. Its going to be $30 and $1 transactions (since we already brought the fee down from 50 to 30, we are doing $1 bonuses). Please let me know if you are in by Saturday night (before 8pm), so I can send you the link, and you can prerank your players. Since we will not be having a live draft (due to everyone not being able to draft at the same time by Tuesday), I will need this your info so you can get a invite and set your prerankings. Thanks guys

You can PM me or email me at dawgpoundfball42@yahoo.com

Dewick, your in. That makes 9.

Hey guys, here is the deal. Since our last setup did not allow for a league comissioner, I had to cancel it (due to not being able to change our teams from 10 to 9. Please void the last league, this is the one we will be using. It is called TCF Fantasy Basketball. Please prerank your players, we will have a offline autodraft on tuesday, so please have your players ranked by tomorrow night. Since I could not fill the last spot, or get Waborat to respond to my messages, we will have a 8 team roto league. Please read the rules before the season starts, just to make sure you understand the roto rules. We are using ESPN standard rules, havent changed a thing. Goodluck guys. Please remember that it is $30 and $1 for each pickup. Trades are free. Thanks guys!
