I prefer Yahoo 10 fold over CBS. I have a hard time finding the players that I want for my team on CBS, but can easily get the info from my yahoo leagues. I surely will do my best to never play in another Sportsline league.
At what point do you attribute this to your familiarity with one layout over another and difficulty learning to understand a new system?
I don't get what's so hard about typing a player's name into the player search then clicking "add this player" if they are unowned or seeing their owner if they are owned.
It's quite obvious that most of the people who swear to never give CBS another shot know VERY little about CBS's software.
I strongly dislike debating CBS and yahoo with CAFE users
Let's get back to questions about CBS
Well - I have never been accused of being a slow learner and Ive played fantasy for years - in fact, I have been playing on CBS since they started offering it.
I hate CBSSportsline with a passion. Maybe it stems from the astoundingly poor fantasy advice they continue to put out (Im guessing - I havent read a fantasy article from that place in over 2 years - there is simply no reason to). Maybe its because their draft software was such a joke for so many years. Maybe its because they featured a point based H2H format as the default when I'm a roto guy and wouldnt dream of playing point based fantasy baseball leagues. Maybe its the slow load time and awkward configuration that I have never gotten used to. For whatever reason though, I absolutely detest anything that has to do with CBSSportsline.
With the stat/player search - why do they use "periods" instead of last month or last week? To me - thats the kind of thing that detracts from this site - I understand that I can customize it any way I want, but why set the default on a "period" that I have to look up the definition of just to understand what I'm looking at? Now, Im sure there is a logical answer why they use "periods", but the question still remains - why use it as the default when most people who play fantasy are looking for simple last month or week settings?
On the subject of keeper leagues and customization - first of all, I try and play a very vanilla type of fantasy baseball: 5x5 roto. I dont need a lot of customization, nor do I want exotic setups. Keeper leagues are great - but the keeper leagues I am in normally have a forum and homepage away from the league site and we tend to keep track of keepers and salaries ourselves - it really isnt that hard to do. So the benefit that CBS offers for keeper leagues isnt worth $130 bucks either.
I know a lot about CBS software. Like I said, I've played it literally every year. I cannot stand it and I refuse to play it anymore - last yr was hopefully the last time.
I just want you to understand that people who hate CBS normally have very good reasons for it. Dont try and say that people who dont like CBS dont know it - on the contrary Id say the people who dont like CBSSportsline know it very well.
