i have played in a friends league for the past five years, and it has become less competitive every year as consistently losing owners lose interest. The problem is that it's a daily transaction H2H league, so a lot rides on spending time with your team every single day. This is impossible for some of the guys, so it's pretty imbalanced. Next year, I'm planning on starting a new league, taking the most active (and smartest) owners from this league and adding some new guys. I want to do a weekly transaction league, auction draft, FAAB, the whole deal. Rules will be similar to those of Tout Wars. So I have a couple questions for you guys:
1) What site is the best for this? We have used Yahoo! in the past. Is ESPN more suited for this type of league? I would prefer a free league, but I don't want to sacrifice quality to save a few bucks.
2) How much should be automated, and how much done by email through the commish?
3) Do any of you have an "official constitution" or list of rules for this type of league?
