I love the IDEA of player restrictions, but it's a pain when we're all policing ourselves/eachother.

For instance, there could be a team with 5 WR's and a team with 6 WR's. Both teams put a claim on a WR they both want (because the 1 guy forgets restrictions) and the guy with 6 already gets him because he's higher on the waiver order. Then we have to tell him to drop him, the player has to go through the waiver process again, and the guy who SHOULD have got the player in the first place is screwed over. It messes things up and it's a bit unfair.

Ha well I've played in probably close to 40 money leagues over the past 6-7 years and never once have I seen third place rewarded.

1st, 2nd, and the points leader and the weekly higher scorer can get a little skrill.

The best record is meaningless (coming from a guy that finished with the best record in here last year). That's purely luck.

Policing ourselves is a pain in the ass. While its a nice idea in theory it's doesn't quite work out quite as well. If we could figure out some type of light punishment (like losing your waiver order) or something along those lines then it might work and at least be easier to enforce.

I've seen you with the best record a few times. Was it luck then?

Winning the league involves a lot more luck than having the best record throughout the season. Best record isn't meaningless.

That said, I really don't care about the payouts, but I still think 3rd should get something.

I've seen countless leagues where a team 6th, 7th or even lower in points finishes with the best record.

Winning the league obviously requires a ton of luck but that is the purpose of a league - to determine a winner via single elimination tournament so obviously that is going to be rewarded greatly.

Finishing with the best record is entirely meaningless and really deserves no reward IMO.

Why are we spreading the money out so much?

1st, 2nd, and Points leader.

Lol idk maybe its just my circle of friends and people I've played with that give third their money back.

Weekly high scorer has a lot of luck involved too (consistently getting it takes skill). Points leader looks good at 50 if we are gonna do the weekly payouts too.

Looks like we have some figuring out to do about the payout lol. Ill check back in later tonight and see if any progress has been made.

I think 3rd getting $50 is fair. 1st place reg season isn't completely luck obviously but paying out for most points makes more sense.

Yes of course it was to a certain extent.

Again it requires a lot more skill to finish as the point leader then it does as the regular season winner.

Just do a vote

Should 3rd place get money or not?
