How many leagues do you play in?

Postby BigKahuna83 » Fri Mar 14, 2008 12:42 pm

Just wondering how many of you play in multiple leagues.

How many leagues do you play in?

How many is too many?

This year i will be playing in 5 leagues, 3 competitive, 2 just for fun. I think I am at the tipping point for myself. At least they are all on Yahoo so checking in will be much easier than going to several different websites.

I'm in 6 this year, I'd like to have it down to 4 next year though. Having more than 1 yahoo id is a pain.

I like to be in 2 leagues max. That way, you can devote all your attention to all your leagues instead of having like "4 main leagues and 6 fun leagues." Also, if you are in too many leagues, you will always have a conflict of interest with your players (i.e. you own A-rod in one h2h league, but you are playing against him in your other 15 leagues). ;-)

Ideally 1 league a year is what I look for...but its hard to do. I'm fine with 2 leagues max but since getting into the H2HWS that adds 2 more leagues to my list. I'm in 4 this year and not excited about that really.

In an ideal world I would be in 1 league but I'm fine with 2. More than that and I hate myself! :-/ :-)

The most I've ever done is 7, and it spread me entirely too thin and my teams suffered because of it. I scaled it down to 4 last year, which was more manageable, and am at 4 again this year.

I'm in 3. Which at this stage of the season seems pretty good. 2 of them are ongoing dynasties.
I was in 6 one year and it was too confusing and time consuming.
Last year was just the two dynasties which wasn't quite enough.

10 team money
12 team money
20 team private
12 team Yahoo Winners
12 team Yahoo Pub

I won't spend much time on the Yahoo leagues. It's like a part time job.

The most I had done was 9 a couple of years back, but scaled it down to 7 last year. I found myself busier in the Spring/Summer than I could've imagined and couldn't keep up with the treadmill completely. I'm content with 5 leagues now (could be open to 1 more). One of them is a weekly transaction NL Only roto and so I could have a breather from checking up on the league every now and then. :-°
