And now to the leagues....

We follow a 8x-3x-1x-1x-1x formula. This means...

(8x)1st place gets 8 times the league entry fee

(3x)2nd place gets 3 times the league entry fee

(1x)3rd place gets their entry fee returned to them

(1x)Team with best regular season record gets their entry fee returned to them

(1x)Fantasy Sports Central withholds one entry fee to go towards the development of the FSCEN website, marketing, and league prizes. Last year we gave away an authentic NFL jersey and we have much bigger plans in the making. As we continue to grow we expect the league withholding amount to decrease, but starting up a large scale site as we are attempting to do requires funding. We hope you understand and this doesn't deter anyone from participating in our fun and very competitive leagues.

Players can use check / money order by mail or PAYPAL to pay their league fees.

Very interesting...93% payouts for a non-player run league.

How is the money guaranteed? After the whole AFFL fiasco I am leary to enter any new online contests except for the big ones that have been around for a while.

Can you send me some more information?

I know what you mean. I am very cautious about what leagues I join and where I send my money. Luckily I have never been the victim of any scam, but there are plenty of them out there. This is our second season and we are going out on a limb trying to grow our organization. Last year we only offered 2 leagues: a $50 buy-in league and one free league that gave away an authentic NFL jersey to the winner (guy received a LT jersey). This year we wanted to offer more leagues and bigger cash prizes (of course that means bigger entry fees). I firmly believe in getting as much money back to the players as we can (that's why we have a 93% payout right now). The other 7% is to help fund the development of our website that will be launched soon as well as offer more free prizes to our members. Some of these other fantasy league sites have really gotten pathetic with their payouts; some keeping nearly 50% of the league fees for themselves. We will never drop below 90%. I know people are extremely uneasy about sending a stranger anything over $100 for a league entry fee and I am researching the best possible way to prove to our members that the league funds will be secure and guaranteed. I am trying to apply everything I have encountered over my 7 years of fantasy play into developing FSCEN into a place that fantasy players can trust and have fun (and hopefully make some money or win something cool). Right now I haven't officially narrowed down how we are going to secure/guarantee the funds for our big money leagues, but I will keep you informed when we arrive at that decision. Is there anything else I can answer for you regarding our leagues?
