Annoyed.
Fear not Simon the weeks not over as Chelsea Vs Reading is tomorrow. I'm sure the sub will take place after the game has finished :D

Wildcarding early is always the best tactic. Especially since they introduced the January one.

Had an email from a betting company interested in signing up forums to their fantasy league system. They provide the system, we decide an entry fee and the winner gets a prize. They are pitching it as a way for forums to make some cash but as we don't need any right now, I'd be looking at 100% prize money. They don't take a cut, they just want more people on their site and therefore more likely to stick £20 on the grand national or whatever.

Would this be of interest to those in the league this year? If so, what sort of level of fee would people be happy with? If you're interested, I'll find out more.

Sitting comfortably on top of the pile, I'd be very interested. 8-)

Just to clarify, are we talking about this season, or next season. And if next season, do they have their own fantasy football league framework, or use Barclays?

Just a bit confused about how we'd be more inclined to even visit their site, just for offering an idea.

EDIT:

Ahh, or do we have to pay our entry fee through their site....they hold the cash.....and payout at the end of the season?

My initial interest also depends upon whether or nor this site is a reputable one that you trust?

The latter. All the trades etc are done through their site and they control their own advertising of course. Nowt to do with Barclays.
