I think he means he's never seen a league that hands out $ for regular season. Neither have I btw. Nor have I seen commissioner fees.

I have joined some leagues that handed out prizes for the regular season, and I think it is good. Also, when I receive the $1200 league fees through Paypal, around $50 in fees will be charged by Paypal, thus the prizes.

Ya that's what i mean, i dont like how you could potentially only make $275 profit after winning a $1200 league.

So you think it is better to only have one grand prize (and a 2nd & 3rd prize) after the end of the playoffs?
That would be fine by me;
What do others think?

Noted, this suggestion is fine by me.
Suggested prizes below; What do you think?

1st place after playoffs = $650
2nd place after playoffs = $300
3rd place after playoffs = $150
4th place after playoffs = $50

Registration now open, payments can be made later when we have 12 teams.
In any case, payments should be made at least 48 hours before the draft.
Please PM if interested, thank you!

Auction draft soon!
Normal league champions usually get only 30% of the pot...
In this league, 1st place gets around 55% of the pot!
Register now!!!

It seems that auction draft fantasy leagues are not popular...
Would anyone prefer to join the Blowout League if it is a Standard (Round-by-Round) Draft?

Normal league champions usually get only 30% of the pot...
In this league, 1st place gets around 55% of the pot!
Hope we can have 12 teams for this league by the end of this week, thanks!

No teams in the league yet (just me), so there are still 11 spots available.
We can adjust the draft style if that is what most want, thank you!
