    For example, say I wish to trade Ray Rice for Lasean McCoy - one top five pick for another. In my opinion, no other member of the league should have a say in whether or not that trade happens. Not wanting one your rivals to improve their team is not a valid reason for voting down a trade, yet that is the #1 reason why most people choose to do so. If we keep a voting policy for all trades it would be nice if everyone kept that in mind. It's not the league's job to ensure that every trade is fair and balanced, it's simply to ensure that there is no collusion between owners and that nobody is cheating.
    I'm happy with $30 buy in and having Fourthisto approve trades. He did a bang up job last year and I trust his FF acumen.

    I will do the auction league if the buy in is cheap, or free.

    Well then, if that's the case then I will switch it to "Commissioner Approved" trades. HOWEVER, since I am in the league as well that becomes kind of a shady arrangement. Not that I don't trust myself, I wouldn't try to do some sort of BS, but let's say I DO make a trade... would it make some sense to have the league vote on that one?

    Invite emailed.

    This is how we do waivers:

    In a normal waivers systems, waiver priority determines which manager's request is processed first.

    Continual rolling list: waiver claims are processed in waiver priority order and each successful claim moves a manager to the end of the waiver priority list
    With the priority list initially created by reversing the draft order.

    Yeah, I think it's a bad idea to hold the draft on a weekend - especially labor day weekend.

    If Friday doesn't work for people then I'd vote for the Tuesday or Thursday before.

    Yeah, if a majority of the owners raise an objection to a trade involving the commissioner (this can be done on the league message board), then that trade should be overruled. But honestly every league I've been involved in has never had a problem with this policy.

    Got it, the invite was sent about two minutes ago.

    As soon as BlueDevil50 signs up, we're at capacity! Emails with details about the buy-in will be sent out once we're full. Paypal payments will be due by 8/25 or your team will be deleted and someone else will take your spot.

    The draft for my other Yahoo league is on 8/30. Can we push this draft back to 9pm Pacific on 8/30? I'm also booked until 9pm on Wed the 29th as well. All other days work for me.

    I'm pretty sure if you request money through PayPal they will take a cut of the payment. The remaining unpaid league members should just cancel your invoices and send you a "personal" payment for $30 so you don't wind up eating PayPal's fees x 11. I'll send as soon I get home.

    I think they changed their policies to take a cut no matter what you do now. I'm not worried about it, but if you want to send the funds a different way to see what happens I'm all for it.

    Sounds good re: your payment plans. And this isn't an auction draft, this is a live, traditional style one. Draft order is determined by Yahoo about a half hour before draft time.

    No they just made it more complicated. If you request money (send people bills/invoices) they will take a cut. If you elect to send someone money but leave it on the default PURCHASE they will also take a cut. The only way around it is for someone to click SEND MONEY and then click the PERSONAL tab. I just sent you money this way - check and see but I'm fairly certain the entire $30 will be in your account.
