I use it to get news, not advice, there's a difference. I can't keep up with every aspect every team. Rotoworld does a great job of covering all of the local media outlets for each team. They just mask their good research amidst too much analysis and now jokes sometimes.

More importantly, is Tiffany Simons actually hot, or does she just seem hotter because she talks about fantasy sports?

To the people who are complaining about it... I was just wondering how much money it costs you to use the site to get your information?

Thats right it's free. Complaining about a free service, yeah that's logical. Don't use it if you honestly can't "sift" through a one liner to get information.

So because it's free means no one can say anything bad about it? Yahoo fantasy baseball is free but because people point out what things could be better it has vastly improved over the years. The Cafe is free but they still welcome suggestions and comments to try and improve the site. Maybe in this particular case complaining about jokes isn't helping anything but to make a blanket statement that complaining about anything free is illogical, well, is illogical.

There's a huge difference between complaining about something and making suggestions. Saying "The Cafe sucks because the layout is awful", is alot different than saying "I don't really like this layout, maybe you could change it to something more user friendly". I'm all for making suggestions to better something, but complaining about insignificant things does not make anything better.

Did I not give my exact reasons, and even have someone else agree? It's not like I said Rotoworld sucks now, period.

Keep up the good work Rotoworld. I haven't noticed any decline in quality.

And I imagine there's a large silent majority out there who agree with me.

You said they "Mask all their good research by having jokes" and it's "Hard to sift through it to find the real info"

They do about 60 blurbs a day for various players and 2 or 3 times a week they throw in a joke. I don't have to do the math to show you that's an awful low percentage. You're complainging about something that really is a non-problem, and there is no reason for it.
