I like Yahoo. Maybe I'm just more used to their interface, but I find it easier to navigate than CBS or ESPN. They're sometimes a little slow to update thier player database, but for the price, it can't be beat.

Yes, I'm in the Yahoo camp as well. Easy interface, the price is right.....what more do you need? In order of gnarliness:

Just a note that ESPN is offering free leagues this year:

CBS offers free leagues also now. (started last year)

With Sportsline's free private leagues, Sportsline is the Commish, and you can't make any changes to the league. You can only do 10 team leagues. Also, you can only make weekly changes to your lineup. I've never used free private ESPN leagues before, but I wonder if they will be the same. If so, as far as free Private leagues go, Yahoo is much better. Not only is it easier to navigate as you have mentioned, but you have so many more options as far as what categories you want to use, or how many players you can start, etc... etc...

A friend of mine invited me into a free private Sportsline league. Having no experience with Sportsline, I decided to try it. Got to reading the Sportsline rules, and I was surprised at how spoiled I had been with using Yahoo. I'm now trying to talk all of them into moving over to a Yahoo Private league. I don't know if I'm getting anywhere with them. None of them ever used Yahoo...

Curious for myself and this post ... p?t=250282

Sportsline seems the way to go for keepers correct? do they have the site open all year?

I like Yahoo the best. I like the interface. I've used CBS and ESPN before, but Yahoo mostly.

I like CBS. It can be difficult to navigate if you are new to it, but it offers a variety of scoring options. My league members also love the fact that they can post stories with oic's included. It can be hilarious.

CBS has by far the best interface. IMO
