    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.

    count me in if it is not auction, never done auction type draft and dont think a 500$ league is the way to learn one lol! But count me in otherwise... i also mentioned https://www.leaguesafe.com/ which is what we used for my 300$ league last year and its very simple and its E-check.. basically your checking account and you pay... they hold the funds and then at end of the year money is released but everyone is responsible , the pay out has to be voted upon at end of year by a majority, and if there is problems they have admins they will look into your league and see who won and what the payment structure was agreed upon before... i dont think they take money either. but i wasnt commissioner of my league last year but i do know its legit!

    But id like in if possible!

    who are we still waiting on Chop?
    I know awmllc2000 is busy with his WSOP thread, so he hasnt responded yet.

    As much as i love auctions, and think they are truly the best way to do fantasy football - i think they suck online
    so personally i would prefer a snake draft, like last year - we can have a vote once we get full or whatever though

    I am not the commish and I dont make the rules.
    But since the league has been established already as a draft league I think it would be wise to keep it that way.
    I envision this league being a yearly thing with with a solid core of 9 or 10 regulars with 2 or 3 new additions every year.

    Only way to do that is to have the same basic rules every season.

    I would love an auction league.

    If one of you wants to start an auction league for a decent sum of money I will be happy to sign up as long as I trust the money holder.

    But for this league lets keep it the way it is.

    I know $500 action is pipedream but $250 seems like it might be doable...

    Do you want one of us to make a new thread inquiring about it Pats?

    Or should we use this same thread to gather interest?
