    I started a thread last year to gauge interest in a 1k buy in Fantasy Football League. I went a step further and fired up a league on ESPN. The link is provided below. One of the key thoughts in last years thread was having the league be a NO trade league based on the level of stakes involved. I totally agree with that and set the league up as such. If this league sounds interesting, drop on in and chat about it. If not move along.


    The all important who's holding the money. (****** friends/family option or bitcoin) That would be me and I am certainly open to sharing that responsibility, but it would have to be a person that I am extremely comfortable with....aka choptalk and he is just one example, there are others that I would trust. If people need to see my bank statements before sending their money in just say. Here's the link with rules and scoring......half point ppr!

    Looking at an 8 person or 10 person league.

    8 person payouts

    1st - 5k 2nd - 2k 3rd - 1k

    10 person payouts

    1st - 6k 2nd - 3k 3rd - 1k


    Have a great year everyone.......we are getting close!

    Wouldn't let me view the league because I wasn't a league member. I would possibly be interested.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmm.......let me see if I can take screen shots of everything and post them. Cy you are a prime example of somebody that I would like to help hold the money as well. I'll get on this right now and see if I can open it up or at the very least take screen shots of the league settings.

    Lol.......gambling forums now a days have enough traffic to worry about contests in the main page? But yet leave up worthless shit that has nothing to do with sports let alone gambling? Interesting.

    Please proceed with extreme caution and operate at your own risk when dealing with other Rx posters privately, especially in financial matters. The Rx.com does not endorse any posters that solicit other posters for loans or transfers, or wagering events between yourselves and cannot vouch for any posters that attempt to procure loans, funds for private contests, funds for private wagers or transfers from other posters for any reason anywhere on this site.

    Financial transactions between posters are extremely risky and The Rx. advises the use of the most serious caution before making any kind of financial transaction with another poster. The Rx.com itself cannot be held responsible when posters fail trying to recover funds loaned, transferred or wagered with or to other posters under any circumstances.

    Unless you personally know a poster or one is vouched for you by someone you highly trust you should be very hesitent to conduct unsecured financial business with posters that you meet on this any other forum.

    I cannot over emphasize how dangerous it is to bet or loan or transfer money with or to complete stangers and expect to be paid in the end. I am not saying all posters are dishonest but utmost caution needs to be practiced whenever posters deal with each others privately, especially in regards to financial matters. The Rx.com cannot help mediate disputed wagers, contests or debts between private parties..

    Caveat Emptor - let the buyer beware..

    Thank you, The RX Mod Team

    $tinky it really does not look like it will materialize again. Pretty bummed, but just not enough interest. I will check this thread daily for the next week, but if we don't have at least 8, I will shut it down.

    I would love to have Willie in this league, but so far we have:

    GGW
    Cy
    Stinky
    Me (Mr. NBA)


    I think you might be confusing this 1k league with the 500 dollar league possibly. Would love to have you in this one for sure.

    Is there interest in running a 6 person league? I have my web designer that said he is interested so that would make 5. I personally have never done a 6 person league, but certainly not apposed to it. Maybe just pay out the top two places. 4k/2k?

    Maybe next year I'll have some interest.

    Already in three FF Leagues
    Trying to get the $ 500 two strike survivor to grow
    In Harry's $ 50 survivor
    In JOH's and BAS's college tournament
    In JOH's and BAS's NFL tournament
    And joined Kidman's fantasy survivor where I'm supposed to help when he's on his honeymoon

    all while trying to pick a few winners and maybe even work a few hours too

    My head is spinning right now
