Playoff Team For Sale ~ $ 180 * Great Opportunity For Savvy

Postby NIGHTSHADE » Tue Nov 04, 2008 12:00 pm

Our 11 year old league has a playoff team for sale, because an owner was thrown out due to nonpayment.

The value of the team increased 80% due to its 6-3 record, 3rd overall Power Rank and has a first place {2 game lead} in their division. You make the playoffs, you get 10% of the pot back minimum. Pot stands at $ 1077 currently
Check out the website. http://www.geocities.com/alanhffl

You would be buying the PHANTOMS and peruse all info pertaining to that team on the 2008 links.
You are allowed to replace that name, colors, etc if you wish. LT is an attractive option and may be protected for 2009 if you wish to remain in league.

Deadline for owner purchase is Saturday, November 8...6 PM

Any questions, please ask or call {585} 317-9480.

No one is going to pay $180 for a team 1/2 way thru the season.
If you knock it to 1/2 off, then you would get some takers.
Just my 2cent!

Though your opinion may be viable on a certain level, you fail to see that the price is just, given the situation you are in.
You inherit a great team with a potential $ 500 in pure profit if your are victorious. You make the playoffs and you can GET your 1/2 off rate. It is a fair reflection of everyones risk/reward footing.

So the team for $180. Then if you make the playoffs this year, you only have to pay $90 for next season and you get a CHANCE to win $500??
Is that correct???

Next Year?! Where you you get 2009 ideas in my ad? You would only be down $ 71 heading into the Divisional Playoffs for 2008 without much chance of losing that early 10% favor. A much greater odds than the normal 0-0 record and standard $100 entry fee.

2009 was referring to protecting LT if you so wished.

Deadline passed anyway so this is all moot.

Did you fill it or just let the team sit?

I advertised the team the last two weeks to outsiders, but I guess noone has that kind of money to play with these days. Too bad, because it could have paid off for someone.

I think everybody realized that paying $180 for the opportunity to win 10% of an $1100 prize pool was a losers game. No real shot at total points and not likely to catch highest 1 week total.

I'm with Reds1975 on that.
