Hi all, just wanted to ask if there were any good ideas for keeping players interested in the league from a long term standpoint. I'm in a friendly league with 12 people, 50 dollar buy in.
In previous years, we were playing H2H standard draft, and we would give the consolation winner 1st draft position choice, and the second place winner gets the second draft position choice, etc. This year the commissioner was thinking of setting up an auction league, but wants to give auction money instead to the consolation league, in 5 dollar increments. To me, the $60 auction dollar difference between first and last place would be too much of an advantage for the league in following years, but I don't have any good ideas to offer the commish for incentives and balance.
I personally do not like the idea of rewarding losing teams, but if anyone has any good ideas, I'd love to hear them.
