We are reaching a crisis point with ballin. My gut reaction is to trust him and that he'll eventually pay regardless of how his team is doing because he is an honorable person, but this is the whole reason I wanted to postpone the draft order and actual draft, if necessary, until everyone is paid. That gives everyone incentive to get it paid fast.
It isn't always a purposeful thing. I am a procrastinator myself, so unless I'm under pressure or deadline or something, I'll put mundane things like this off too. Someone gets a little slack on the payment, we do the draft, and suddenly a week passes and he forgets about it.
Problem is -- now, he is 0-1 and less trustworthy people would be second-guessing dishing out the $120.
As far as I can tell, this is his last post in the thread. It is from 08.28.2018:

Am I supposed to change or add something in my settings to maybe get that included? I am using my phone for this but I don't think that should make a difference.
So here we are, on Sept. 12th and a day away from Week 2 starting and there has still been no payment made. We are hamstrung and it is because we broke the iron-clad protocol we were FORCED to implement when we first started this league because people were trying to skate by without paying from the first year we did it. That is why we all agreed that payments had to be made before the draft order and an invite was sent to the Yahoo league. It isn't personal and should always apply to everyone, myself included.
We haven't heard from Ballin in over two weeks. What happens if he has a rough Thursday night? Or we don't hear from him and he slips to 0-2? That $120 needs to be paid ASAP or I'm not sure what the next step will be.
Ballin, if you are out there, please respond.
Btw, where is -pt- and dooms' outrage over this? These guys were ready to start checking Ohio obituaries for RBA when I was slightly late doing the LeagueSafe, and Ballin hasn't paid 2 weeks into the season and not a peep.
As an aside, if you haven't noticed by the 9th annual ISH Money League, you never will...
I am of course referring to -pt- and dooms obviously being the same person. #NeverForget #OriginalSin #PetermanStinks (unrelated)
