LOL, why does CBSSportsline get a pass?

Yahoo gets killed because people can't get their A-ball prospect fast enough or because StatTracker is funky for a few minutes/ hours.

Yet here is CBS with glitches all week and...nothin'.

:-P

Damn CBS!!

CBS SportsLine sucks! Happy? Yahoo just gets all the attention because it's more popular. B-)

P.S. If you see my girlfriend, tell her she forgot to stock the beer fridge. :-/

I would guess that 90% of us play Yahoo.

Someone should do a poll.

CBS was really, really buggy two years ago. Seemed ok last year, and I've had no problems this year. :-?

I don't care for CBS's interface at all; it's content is very much superior to Yahoo's and the tools at your disposal are excellent.. but for sheer ease of use and user friendliness, SportsLine blows.

One of my favorite features in Yahoo is sorting players by their ranks; the Yahoo Rank, the overall fantasy rank for the year and also their ranks in the last week or month. I use this is extensive in Yahoo to keep track of which players are more consistent than others. I know there are ways to do this on my own, but I just find the simplicity of Yahoo's interface superior over SportsLines.

StatTracker is also much, much better than Sportline's GameCenter, which is extremly buggy and difficult to read with all the commas everywhere.

I also hate that the per-game stats are not "easily accessible." Maybe I sound like a whiney newb, but the baseball season is long and sometimes all I can give is a quick glance in the morning.

Overall, I don't think I'll be using CBS again.

I don't like the fact that CBS sportsline H2H leagues do not allow for a DL - (unless there is a setting to adjust for it that I just am unaware of) - I agree , their gamecast is really buggy - the other night, it was behind the action by almost a full inning - and then suddenly it would speed up. Also the waiver wire only applies to dropped players and not players called up from the minors. I used Yahoo before, and I switched to Sportsline only because my co-workers use it. Will probably go back to Yahoo next year.
