    Thanks Nancy!

    Not to be a sore winner here, but it’s ridiculous that some people still haven’t paid.  I’d be saying the same thing even if I hadn’t won. Next year I vote that you’re not in the pool until you’ve paid up.  Shouldn’t be the winners responsibility to chase down people for money. 
    I agree. I don't mind till about the 5th week or so and then it gets kind of ridiculous and not worth my time to tell other adults to do the right thing. Last year everyone paid by mid season. 

    You shouldn't have to track people down for money and neither should the banker. I collect and pay out funds & make pretty charts, I'm not a collection agency. 

    Santos DID pay at the beginning of the season but sent it through the option that takes out fees so I returned and requested through friends and family. Sent an email and message and posted here but haven't heard anything. 

    And next season - FRIENDS & FAMILY or the person sends in the fees that are deducted. 

    Sorry you have to deal with this.

    Yep...completely agree.  I'm commissioner of my fantasy football league and used to deal with this crap every year until we started making teams inactive until they paid.  Like you said, It's ridiculous to have to chase down adults for stuff like this.

    Strictly NFL...with a little NBA mixed in from time to time.

    My knowledge of college is not sufficient enough to wager.

    It is time...


    so we had 15 in the pool last season.

    do you think we could get more if we changed the entry fee to $20-25 and made it winner-take-all?

    This reminds of my buddy whom i have Eagles tickets with. We usually sell 4 games or so. Every year we send an email/facebook post out around when training camp starts. Yet every year, for well over 10 years running, my buddy asks if we should send those emails out when the schedule comes out, then around draft time, then around mini camp in June. haha....Literally this happens every single year.

    Who’s down to clown?

    And entry-fee thoughts???

    same as always $40 entry fee and pay 2-3 spots?

    or

    $20 entry fee to try to get more people in pool and payout entire pot to winner?

    Watching Giants/ Jets preseason game.  Haven't been on here in a bit but I'm definitely in for 2019 Degenerate Football. 

    If there's a thread already can you post link, my laptop is broken & I'm using my phone. Love my phone, hate forum on it though.  Looking forward to football season.

    Always down to clown.  I think keeping it at $40 and paying top 2 spots is a good setup.

    agreed with the $40 and paying 2-3 spots.....keeps people active when there's a consolation winner.....

    I agree also with the current pay in/pay out .  Having consolation prizes keep you inspired to push to the end.

    So happy it's football season!
