ehh it happens, im a little suprised theyre doing it this late though

as for money, think of something scary:

cbs charges about $130 for their league commishioner, assume 10 teams on avg, thats $13 per team, or you can pay individually anywhere from $10 - $500 per team (wow)

if youre curious as to how much the site is actually worth:

in 2004 viacom bought the rest of sportsline (40% for) $67.7 million, meaning the site is worth roughly $170million, why so much?well advertising is a big chunk, but I think the SEC filings speak for themselves:

advertising on site year to date 2004: 30.5 m
subscription fees = 7.091 m



that means cbs is making over 7 MILLION a year in cash flow from fantasy sports -- wow
