I've never been to crazy about the money moves. I think you should be able to make them (within reason) , as you wish for free.

We pay $2 for each move and the $$ goes towards a party at the end of the season. With all of the money from the transactions plus the low score of each week pays $5 we end up with a couple hundred bucks to buy food and booze, it works out pretty well.

As Da Commish, I just got sick of the accounting hassle when we charged $1 trx. I contributed the proceeds to the end of year party anyway. So now, I just charge everyone $10 and do all the trx you want. It has increased activity and at least I feel better about all the time I spend. Usually put it towards league beer anyway but, I don't have too. Everyone knows how much time I put in and they are all very happy with it.

But, when your WW system is complex such that Commish has to do stuff (like mine) something should be charged. No one else in my league wants my job because they know how much I have to do to keep everything fair and everyone happy.

We do $1 for every addition to the roster, be it through trade or free agency.

I don't even want to know how much I've contributed to the final payout so far...hopefully, I'll win it so I don't have to worry about it... 8-o

So far I've made 10 moves (three were to help me with bye situations, and since I picked 11th out of 14, I was in desperate need of a QB and picked up Penny and Leinart). I'm 4-2.

The high scorer each week (14 teams) wins $5, and I've done it once so I'm only $5 in the hole so far.

I was just curious what other leagues do. I would probably make a few more moves if I didn't have to pay each time.

We pay $1 for each move to which goes into the prize pool for the end of the year. We also have a $30 weekly prize for highest points scored.

Our league was a 14 team $20 buy in league. We have $2 per WW add and $2 per player per trade. We get three free transactions. This method really makes the end of the year payout very nice. Also, I am always competing with one or two other owners for the "Steinbrenner" trophy in our league.

$5 per waiver. $10 per trade.

Pot for the Super Bowl Champ the past two years has exceeded over $2000. More than 50% of this money comes from transactions. First year, I was hesitant to make moves. Now I'll make 3 moves on Saturday night if it means I have a 1% better chance to win on Sunday or in the future. Can't make money if you don't spend money.

No in-season transactions = cripples your team.

We charge $10 for each move. It makes a nice pot at the end of the year. We also charge $310 entry fee to play and with 14 teams playing we come up with a good pot.
