Just a question, wonder what the normal length is. I'm in a league where our LM takes a long long time to pay. Unfortunately I cant really say jack as the LG is a very good friend of mine but I'm at the point where its getting very frustrating being in his league.

For example, I didn't get paid until spring time last year and I'm concerned itll happen again this year. Emails and texts have been sent to no avail. What's your average wait time and any suggestions for me?

There is no 'normal'. Is this your first year in this league with this guy as commish? How has he done payouts previously if not?

But either way - he's your friend. Just talk to him. If he's not responding to text/email/calls and he's your friend then you should reach out to other mutual friends and make sure he's okay.

I'd think being his good friend would make it easier for you to say something. If you have rules on when you have to pay, there should also be rules or understanding on when you'll receive winnings.

Only time I took a long time in the past was when I couldn't get in touch with the owners who had winnings to be given.

I send the Winnings the Friday after the Championship. Used to do it the Monday after but had 1 year where Stat Corrections flipped the 3rd Place Game

Inquiring minds want to know: did you get paid?

I pay within 1 week after the playoffs are over.

I don't have a set time, but generally, the playoffs end at or around Christmas, and I try to have all prizes paid out by the end of the year, so roughly a week. Pay the champions first, then any others in descending order of finish, and only delay if, for any reason, someone still owes money. Better to have settled up with everyone who owes before the end of the season, though.

I won it all one year, and the commish didn’t pay me or give me the trophy until the following draft.
Fortunately, I had about 50 pounds of his weed so I wasn’t trippin.

With paypal, venmo, zelle etc. in addition to the old classic methods there is no reason you shouldn't be paid in a few days. Waiting months is moronic
