Question about league website providers

Postby futureleague » Tue Jul 29, 2008 4:01 pm

We're starting a new league for 2009 and are looking for a sevice provider. We have a few specific rules which will impact who we can use.

1. We will have 35 man starting lineups with 5 man reserves. This knocks Yahoo out since they only allow 30 man rosters.
2. We will have salaries and contracts and would like a website to track this. We will use decimal points. This knocks ESPN out.
3. We will have daily transactions.

I've found CBS Sportsline, OnRoto, RotoWire, and TQStats (assuming they are still viable after being bought by fanball). Sportsline appears to be the best looking of the three sites (I'm spoiled by Yahoo) and I created a test league last week. Unfortunately, in the setup it appears they don't allow for daily transations -- only weekly transactions. Also, I don't know if they allow decimals in their salaries.

Does anyone have any specific info on CBS Sportsline or another site which could meet our need? We could also go with ESPN if we will track contracts and salaries on another site (which is a possibility).

Don't know about the salaries, but daily transactions are allowed at CBS.

For Sportsline's free leagues, there are only weekly transactions. But for their private, pay leagues (about $130/yr) there are daily transactions. And yes, you can use decimals to track salaries... you use a wild-card field (or at least, that's what we do) and decimal places are accepted.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

What about a website that does custom league settings?

I have looked at all of the ones mentioned above, and none of them fit my leagues scoring/salary rules.

Does anyone know of a site that will customize an entire league based on league rules?

Again, Sportsline's pay version lets you customize basically everything.
