We have 5 members joined up, and 5 yet to go.
If I could ask one more favor of those who signed up and those who are about to, please name your team after your HRT username so that I know who is still missing. Thanks again guys.

I took sign-ups a few weeks back but a few members have been relatively slow to join.
I'm giving everyone another 48hrs to join up. ShowDough has dibs on the first bubble slot, I'll give you second bubble slot. At the rate of sign ups on CBS, you have a good chance. I'll let you know Wed.

No problem. We're currently up to 9. I'll give the last participant until 1pm EST tomorrow to sign up before ShowDough receives his spot.

You guys do know there's a $50 entry fee, right?

Winner-take-all, is that right FlyinLate? Or how about $300 for first, $150 for second, and $50 for third? Just a suggestion. Be sure and send us the payment details once we've got all the teams signed up....

It is in fact a $50 entrance fee. A few people suggested winner take all, but I also wouldn't be opposed to paying out 1st/2nd/3rd. If somebody else seconds the notion for multiple payouts then I'll put it to a vote.

As for payment details, most of the folks in the league have been on this site for at least three years and I personally would trust them to pay at the end (DC, FB, Mike, dirty, etc). Some of the newer guys, however, it would be nice to have their money up front. I'd prefer if a third party, i.e. RightAngle or DC, held funds from those members. I'm getting married in 3 weeks and every penny has been going in to it. I don't want to risk any intermingling of funds with the constant bank account fluctuation I have going on right now.

Take the money NOW! Preferably in one's and five's. We hope small bills go a long way at Club 390.

If you need the money first let me know who to send it to if not just subtract it off of the winnings at the end.

Completely understand about paying upfront. I'm happy to send check, money order, or Paypal which ever is preferred.

Horsin - Hope you stay in, it will be fun. I've got a 2yo running around the house now and was worried how much studying i could get in, but am game...

FL - Congrats! I can't believe your taking on the task of our Commish with a wedding in your near future. I just celebrated my 5th year and recall having to practically give up football that first year.. (in my wifes defense she had no concept of the game as was evident three first time i took her to one-RB drops the ball and she yells"tumble, tumble". I had to explain I think she meant "fumble"......dear...

Maybe 80% 20%.but whatever ya decide .im not greedy besides all of my winnings will probably go towards diapers and formula.me and the wife are awaiting our 1St child in January. We find out Friday if it's a boy or a girl. Boy is-125 if you're wagering.

All 10 have signed up and the league is full.
I'm willing to increase the league to 12 teams and invite ShowDough and ILoveWins if everybody is ok with that?
