- Payment System 

This season we're storing our league fees with LeagueSafe. It has the convenience of paying online, and our funds will spend the season sitting safely in an FDIC-insured bank account. At the end of the season, our league gets 100% of our fees returned, and we'll distribute prizes to winners. 

Check out LeagueSafe.com if you want to see exactly how entry fees will be collected. 

- Trade Policy 

No anonymous objecting to trades is permitted. All owners who object a trade must give a brief explanation as to why he or she objected a particular trade. If a trade is objected anonymously that objection will be discarded. The beginning of the “Objection Explanation Period” will be announced by the commissioner following the successful vetoing of a trade. 

If a trade is objected four times and brief explanations are given for all four objections during the “Objection Explanation Period”. When the trade comes to the commissioner for a final decision the trade will be killed. If there is a lack of explanations on the four objections during the “Objection Explanation Period” I will approve the trade. The explanations need not be long or detailed. Simple and to the point will work best.

Draft & Waiver Wire Order


Our draft order will be randomized by MyFantasyLeague.


Our waiver wire order each season will begin as the opposite of the original first round draft order. Our waiver wire claim order does not reset weekly or at all for that matter. Our waiver wire claim order is not altered in anyway by weekly results or standings. The waiver wire order is only altered when an owner receives a claim. Each time a claim is received by an owner that owner is moved to the bottom of the waiver wire order. An owner can only be moved up in the order when a claim for another team is successful. 

Playoff Format 

Six teams will advance into the playoffs. The two teams who place overall seed one and two will receive a bye week. The third seed will compete against the sixth seed and the fourth seed will compete against the fifth seed. In the second round the first seed will compete against the lowest ranking seed to advance. The second seed will compete against the other seed. The final two teams remaining will compete for the league championship and the grand prize. 

Teams that do not qualify for the playoffs will be unable to add or drop players during the three week playoff period. Once a team is eliminated from the playoffs, that team will be unable to add or drop players as well.
