No matter how you do this, some paying and some not paying owners will cause trouble. Say a non payer and a Payer make a trade. The Payer gets the better of the deal by a long shot. You will have problems no matter which way you handle it. You will also have Non-Payers quit the league midway through the season and affect the standings. I wish you luck, you will need it.

Obviously I saw this too late to be helpful, but for future reference:

These situations are ideal to handle with a best ball league. You increase the number of players drafted, no trades or drop/adds during the season, and owners don't start their own starting lineup. The best player scores on a team's roster for the weekend automatically go 'in play'.

Unfortunately, the draft is the only actively fun part about your season since you don't have week-to-week decisons.

But that (or something similar) is the only way to avoid the problems everyone else has mentioned and yet allow the guys who want to play for cash still do so with no risk of having their season sabotaged by an uninvested owner.

Thanks for the input...the deadline for people who wanted to participate was yesterday. The majority mentioned 2 weeks agoo that they were willing, but only one actually signed up and paid....so, next year I'll just make it mandatory before the draft....so whoever complains just won't be in the league!
