Its not the cost....$20 isnt going to break me. I'd just rather not put money into a league that will likely have 2-3 dead teams (therefore giving advantage to a few teams over others) by August. I'm not suggesting you guys refrain from making it a pay league. If a majority want to go that route, by all means, that's the way it should go. I'd just personally rather not do it because I'm already in a couple of high dollar leagues. I've always viewed this one as a reprieve from the day to day "stress" of those.
I'm not trying to talk you guys out of it. Just telling you where I'm coming from on it.
