CBS Sportsline or Fanball.com?

Postby ELsolly » Sun Feb 24, 2008 3:52 am

We used to use TQ stats but their service stated to stink and now thay have joined up with fanball.com I hear CBS sportsline is good and was wondering if any commissioner's out there might recommend one over the other?

Your expert advice is appreciated

Thanks

After years at Yahoo, we switched last year, and I'm a really big fan of CBS now - the FAAB $ system is great and everything can be controlled by the commish - you don't have to email anyone at the site when you want to undo a trade or correct other intraleague issues. And this year they're adding online auction capabilities to live drafts.

CBS offers a $50 rebate through March 25 if you use this link, making it $79.95 for your whole league to play instead of $129.95. Plus you get $50 more for each referral you make to others.

We've used sportsline for six or seven years and have been happy. You have a lot of control over your league and the few times we've had to use their customer service they have been helpful (if not exactly speedy).

Starting year 4 of our Keeper league...All on CBSSports. Couldn't be happier except if it were cheaper than $130

Ug. I used rotowire for football one year; it was the worst fantasy experience I've ever had.

I've used Sportsline for the past 4 or so years for a couple of baseball leagues and 3 football leagues and they've had a couple hiccups, but still the best out there.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I like Fanball for football. However, I only used Fanball for baseball on their first year of service and it was a mess...not sure how it is now.
Will always help in return (leave a link to your question in response)

If their baseball leauges are anything like their football leagues you will be happy. I've been playing fantasy football on CBS for about 6 years and I've been happy. I'd go with CBS.
100 years of World Series futility and heartbreak. Next year is here. Let's go Cubs.

Been with TQ forever until last years mess. Moved to ROTOWIRE after the season started. We had some small problems, but the customer service (phone call) was GREAT. If I called them with a problem, and I was on the site, the would usually fix the problem while I was there. They make it very easy to correct mistakes retroactively. They asked for feedback after last season, and made some improvements. We're signed up this year, and satisfied so far.
