Waiver Fees (1 Viewer)

I'm in a league that is currently proposing to add a $1 per waiver transaction fee in addition to the league buy-in. I'm trying to determine what the benefit of having a transaction fee is. My thought is that if you try to increase the money available to the winners, why not just increase the league buy-in for everyone?

Does anyone have any good arguments for why an owner who makes more pickups should pay more than an owner who makes few?

I think this only makes sense when using a bidding system for waivers.

 
We used to collect $2 per transaction for many years, for the same reason, to increase the total pot for the money winners. Eventually it became a pain in the A$$ because you had to collect money 2 times a year, at the draft and after the season. Then we just did away with it and added $25 to the league cost for everyone. I would suggest the same.

 
We charge $1 per transaction. The total points winner of the league wins the waiver money.
