ESPN Fantasy Football Blows

I like fantasy football. Not as much as baseball. I like the whole daily checking of the roster thing. Don't really do that with football.

Also I hate losing like 135 - 110 Even though I have the second best score weekly in my league
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Never heard of it either, the closest thing to it is probably Points leagues where it isn't H2H and all the stats are accumulated throughout the whole season but I don't think there is roto. I don't know why though, I would think it would be pretty easy to setup.

Heh heh. I'm exclusively baseball too. It's depressing to peek in over there at the football side. That place is going nuts with the season just starting. Kinda makes me sad to notice how this site is slowing down for the end of the season...


I've been thinking the same thing. I'm a NY Giants fan too, and I poke around over there occasionally, but it's just not the same. An inferior game. :-/

Nah, its not inferior. Football is rarely boring. Baseball can get boring all the time. Heck, I can barely watch or listen to the Cubs anymore this season because its too depressing.


In fantasy terms, I get bored really easily with football. I tried it for a couple years, and after playing baseball it just seems like a joke that there are only 16 games, compared to the volume of games in baseball. Baseball keeps me a lot more engaged.

As far as boring football - blowouts are plenty boring. So are defensive struggles where both offenses are equally inept, and both of these types of game happen often enough. In baseball, on the other hand, pitcher's duels are a thing of beauty. ;-D I just like all the strategy and nuance that goes into baseball, it seems a lot more intricate than football. Plus there's the whole numbers thing (otherwise, there'd be a SAFR). But to each his own. :-b

You don't seriously think there is more strategy in baseball, do you? Football has many more players on the field at a time, with playbooks the size of phone books, and much more in depth scouting and just in general, more strategy, because the game demands it. Blowouts generally aren't boring because theres a lot of points being scored. But to each his own, I guess. Plus a lot of the games in baseball are utterly meaningless. I mean, in a roto league, about half the league is finished by the all star break.

I've had numerous teams in Yahoo, played a season in cbssportsline, and am in my 2nd year in an espn league. Of the three Yahoo is easily on top. It's far too limited in league setup and options, but navigating is a breeze compared to the other two. I also think Yahoo did a nice job of trying to evolve with their new features this year even in the free leagues.

ESPN and cbssportsline are cluttered as hell and just a bear to get around in.

Where is a good pay football site?!
