That's exactly the kind of steaming dump that comes from a couple of them if I get after them to pay.

Here's what I posted on the league page and emailed to all the owners:

MAN LAW

Guys, I really shouldn't have to be asking for money with only two regular season games left. Send in your money this week. Pay up so we can keep everything functional, not just this year, but for years to come. I don't want to have to lock out teams for the playoffs or not award people for a successful season. It's a very small cost for a good time, which is more than I can say for some of Dave and Cory's old dates.

Oh, and they pay by check or cash (some local, some out of state) and I even hold the checks until the end of the season so it's not like they're even out that money until the end.

As a fellow commish, it looks like your doing what you should to get it resolved, and I applaud your efforts. Yeah, it sucks that it has to come to this but you have to make sure it's fair for everyone. GOOD LUCK!

Thanks, Chidoy. I guess if one of the guys who still hasn't paid WINS then I'll tell him to go ahead (and come in on Saturday) and collect his winnings from the other guys. Three of the four live in the same town anyway.
Maybe I could keep a portion for next year's fee, too. ;-D

For future years, just make them pay before week 1, or have every game forfeited by their team until they do so.
