I rarely visit the light side (apathetic football fan here), but I notice that the football side has more commotion on it than here given the influx of new fantasy football players every season. I think the FBC has more of a tight-knit community quality about it. Is FBC more helpful than FFC? Maybe, I don't know if there is much difference, from my experience of navigating the FFC (and there's not much of it and so I can't give you an accurate opinion), but I think the folks around here are good sports about helping out on whatever questions/concerns you have.
