    Win Weekly! Yahoo League w/ LeagueSafe.com

    Cash Prize League - LeagueSafe

    Hi, I’m looking for players for a h2h 6x6 Yahoo league. The league is much like a standard 5x5 but with OPS and Holds added to make it more fun and challenging.

    I’m bringing what I believe to be an innovative concept in which you’d have to be real bad playing this game not to win. Each week you will be playing for a little something all throughout the regular season. This should promote activity all year and make the league that much more fun. If you make it into the playoffs then you will have a shot at the remaining chunk of the money pot, which is the greater part – over 60%. So if you are interested email me at jgarciriz@yahoo.com and I’ll send you the detailed info. Or simply stop by the league and check it out yourself.

    Since chances are most people in the league will not know each other in person then I want to use LeagueSafe.com to do all the funds’ handling for us free of charge. You may check how LeagueSafe works at https://www.leaguesafe.com/home.aspx. The free service was started by Paul Charchian, founder of Fanball.com and Chairman of the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I don’t handle the entry fees. LeagueSafe does so by safely placing the funds in an FDIC-insured bank account until our league playoffs are over. At that point and without delay LeagueSafe pays out the winners as per our very own league rules, which I have clearly stated in the Commissioners’ Note of our league.

    The main reason I have come up with this win-weekly-prize concept is to promote competitiveness and activity within the league. Plus, look at it this way, you pay a relatively small entry fee to get in, yet all throughout the year you’ll have a chance on a weekly basis to gain back small fractions of your entry fee while aligning your squad for a chance at the playoffs and the bigger prizes. And all that while having fun in a very active league. The fun of beating your opponent each week alone makes it all worthwhile.

    Okay, ‘nuff of blah, blah.. Here are the league settings. jgarciriz@yahoo.com.

    • If you click on the leaguesafe link here most likely it will take you nowhere or give out an error. That's because Yahoo has the bad habit of blocking out URL's leading to other websites. Just search online for www.leaguesafe.com to checkout the site. Thank you very much Yahoo for making my life harder in trying to fill my league. Hey, maybe ESPN won't block my links...

    • I have 3 managers in, and two more gamers considering to join in. Still have plenty of open spots. Get in now or contact me at jgarciriz@yahoo.com

      Or txt or call me at 7872399200 if you like. No BS. Let's do it!

    • Still have several open spots.


    • One more owner has joined but we still need at least a couple more to make this league official in 2010. I'd like to have all 16 teams by draft day but just two more managers that join and I will subscribe the league into leagueSafe.com for all managers to deposit their $30 entry fee.

      Guys, come on give it a shot. You have very little to lose and a lot to gain. In fact, I have already stated in the league's message board that if for any reason I can't find the minimum number of players that I want (8 teams) to play with an entry fee in the buck-a-win league, I will still go on with the concept anyway but without the fee and the weekly prizes, and just give the league winner a $30 award out of my own pocket at the end of the season. So come on folks. Get in ASAP before everybody realizes this is out there and spots run out.
