I think you are dramatically underestimating the potential time-suck.
I like fantasy football. I usually play in 1-2 leagues a year (just for fun), and would welcome the opportunity to participate with other Axiomites.
The ESPN site offers a very good free FF league application. I'd suggest using that.
I can not stand to play anything with no stakes ... but please no hustlers.
I'm not sure who is hustling who here
I don't have a clinical problem with gambling or anything, but I really don't need that incentive. If Axiom wants to take the time and effort to accept and track entrance fees and everyone else wants to play for merchandise, I guess that's okay with me. Or we could all pitch in and the winner gets to specify the charity that the pot goes to. Or maybe Ian and Co. have a favorite charity that we could help.
I'd like to participate as long as the buy-in isn't too steep, but I'd be willing to do it just for fun, too.
