    I moved this thread to the Unclassified Ads forum. Maybe you'll get a lead over here.

    Default High $ league

    Dear Phil,

    Pls see the two league ads I posted in the "Unclassified Ads" section, for the Couchpotato Roto Lge ($2000 EF) & Masters League ($5000 EF). Please also note the following about "NFBC."

    NFBC is the National Fantasy Baseball Championship--I played in it in 2006. The BIG diff between the two private leagues I am advertising here & NFBC is "greed." MY league (Couchpotato) pays its Owners 100% of all entry fees (the only charges being for league expenses, which cost < $2000 per year. So, for example, there will be about $2000 X 12 = $24,000 in the pool + about 6 X $150 (Sept Roster Expansion fees) = $900, or about $25,000 in the pool. About $2000 of this is paid to: AllStarStats (the stat service--for 2 websites, AL + NL--about $1600) the auctioneer ($300) & the Draft Day wallboards (~ $150). So out of this $25,000 pot, you can deduct ~ $2150 in league expenses, leaving about $23,000 in the pot. This is paid out to the top 6 finishers in Waggoner fashion: 50%, 25%, 15%, 10% + $1500 for 5th & $750 for 6th.

    NFBC, a commercial enterprise run (well!) by Greg Ambrosius pays back to its contests ABOUT 67% of what you pay in fees. So, for example, lets say 300 people participate in the Las Vegas NFBC championship, paying $1000 each. They collect this $300,000. They keep $100,000 of it as their profit & pay out their prizes, including the 'grand prize' from the remaining $200,000. Their contests in other venues & also their LARGER contests (with a $5K EF) operate on the same principle--they take a huge cut of the prize pool in profit.

    There's NOTHING wrong with this of course--it is capitalism in action. However, it is 'mathematically incorrect' for a Roto lover to pay someone this much vig, when all you have to do is meet a few people who also love Roto & play for "free."

    The MASTERS league is EXTREMELY well run by Jeff Busch of the SF Bay area & Phil Consiglio, who lives in Philly. We pay them a few $100 per yr to commish this league, so the payout is ~ 97% of entry fees.

    LMK if either or both of these formats appeals to you--there is, at this point--ONE vacancy in each of these leagues. Josh Turin (cell: 214-770-6297)
