The Best Homemade League Websites You've Seen Out There

Your page raises an intriguing question...

Elections? Has your league been split by some controversy? I'm used to good old-fashioned commissioner-as-autocrat for life leagues, but it is interesting that you have folks campaigning to become commissioner.

Our commissioner decided to step down. So, we are running against each other. We are all friends so it is quite hilarious actually. I am getting the outgoing commissioner to give me an endorsement. It is definitely not going to tear the league apart. Whoever wins the vote will take over, but we have both been very involved in the league, so the other will still do a lot.

The only reason those sites look that nice is because the owners have the whole week to do as much "prettying" up as their hearts desire while they wait for actual games to be played. B-)

I figure with the site that I want to create, I wouldn't be going for site designs as snazzy as those, but definitely graphically-rich in the same vein. Probably something I'd update once a week during the baseball season, as these better fantasy football sites usually are.

In practical terms, I need to have a place for our league's salary cap figures, minor league rosters, etc. Stuff that Yahoo isn't built for.

In aesthetic terms, I'd also like a place for my league's team visual identity -- logos/uniforms/stadium pictures etc. I'll probably add a sort of "power rankings" for my new league, or a column, to sort of add things the utilitarian Yahoo experience definitely can't bring. I've found that, working on my own fantasy football site, I really enjoy the sort of "art form" of amateur web design, especially since it fits in with fantasy sports, another loved hobby.

But I still find it weird that baseball, purportedly the more intellectual sport, the stats-obsessive sport, does not bring out the web-nerdness like football does. It just seems to fly in the face of conventional wisdom.

Of course, I still lament the fact that fantasy/rotisserie baseball got passed by fantasy football in popularity sometime around the mid to late 90's.

I will be staring a new salaried keeper league next year and also have thought about the same issues with putting together a website for our members. cbs will handle most of the day to day operations, but I would like to maintain all the same info on a seperate site for visitors and historical info. I would be nice to keep records, stats for past seasons.

Once I put together a site, I'll pass it along on this group for you guys to rate.
