I agree yahoo is better, but I dont think cbs is that complicated. they give you free live stat updates.....yahoo doesnt, you have to pay


BravesGuy, what are you talking about SportsLine providing free live stat updates? You have to pay to use SportsLine. The free Yahoo service doesn't provide stat tracker but you can add it per team, or your league can pay for the Plus league option and get Stat Tracker for everyone. It's roughly the same price as SportsLine. Personally, I like Stat Tracker loads better than SportsLine's scoreboard.

We moved from Yahoo to SportsLine this year and were very unhappy with the move. I completely agree with Kentx. It takes several more 'clicks' to get anything done on SportsLine. We are moving back to Yahoo next season.

Put me down for Yahoo as well. ;-D

Easy to use, free, Stattracker is cheap (and works for up to 4 leagues at a one time price of $9.95). No complaints from me. B-)

And, if you mix in a Plus league (or just buy it for 1 team), you get ST for every team on that SN. ;-D

I'm playing fantasy football for the first time, andit's an ESPN league. Everyone in our league is unhappy with it and it's virtually unanimous that we go to Yahoo next year.

I have never played any fantasy baseball except on Yahoo, and based on my football experience, I don't see changing. It's free and if someone chooses to buy the StatTracker, it's certainly cheap enough, especially if you have more than one team.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Okaaay. Looks like we're sticking with Yahoo. We'll do the free league next year so that we don't have to subtract $125 from the pot when it's time to pay out the winnings. StatTracker will be bought individually.

Thanks for the reviews of other services.
