i like this idea. everyone could just hold their own book and ship it to whomever selects the book.

That last part to me is a disaster waiting to happen. Guaranteed someone wouldn't ship a book

I was merely suggesting limiting the number of books to one, as I personally would rather have a single higher value book than several lower value books to equal the buyin. This would also make it easier for collection, holding, and shipping of prizes.

Well, then they would be banned for life...is that really why all the books are shipped to the same location? Because we don't trust each other? I thought it was a convenience thing.

Actually, in my work league that I manage there's always that guy that I have to hunt down for the entry fee so I guess I get it.

I like the idea of one $50 or higher valued book per entry. They definitely all need to be sent to a centralized location prior to start of season though.

How does this sound for prize breakdown?

7 books to winner
3 books to 2nd place
1 book for 3rd place
1 book for best regular season record

The selections can be staggered so the winner doesn't get to just pick the 7 most desirable comics right off the bat.

I like the idea of 1 book, but am also open to 2 books... of course, I'm nothing the league so who cares what I think?

I count 12 members so far, I'm open to doing a 14 team league like we did last year. If we can let the first two members who posted as alternates in.

I truly am busy in the coming weeks and that is the primary reason. Secondary reason is from experience when you have a league and you try to please every request you ultimately end up with no one being happy.

Not trying to passive aggressively work my way into the league, just giving my opinion. Looked like it went well last year, don't see any reason to make drastic changes...

I'm going to bow out too - you can give my spot to that other user who wanted in badly - think it was mhuhn23

In the past, the league worked because Indy volunteered to do so much of the heavy lifting by accepting all the comics, taking pictures of them, listing them, and then re-shipping to the winners. It also worked because we all trusted him to do it.

Okay...we are back at 8 teams. 3 openings...I'll take the books and provide pictures if it helps us move forward. I believe it was 3 books, $50 total value.

I'll give it to Friday to fill the remaining spots. If we don't fill by then I'll close the league...as this is supposed to be fun, I'm not going to stress over fantasy football.
