wow...the $149.99 is currently "discounted" from $179.99...i dont remember it being that much in years past (i thought it was more like $119.99)...that's getting pretty steep (although i guess it's only about $2 more a person for my 12 team league)

You're right. Wow. $149 is the discount? I think last year it was $149 or $119 with the discount. Dammit!

It's amazing what people think is expensive.

How much time you spend on your fantasy league each day?

At least 30 minutes a day, right? Maybe even an hour or more?

$150 per league / 12 teams = $12.50 per team / 24 weeks in the season = $0.52 per team per week / 7 days in the week = $.08 per team per day / 1.5 hours a day = $.05 per hour.

You are spending a nickel an hour on Sportsline.

And really, most every league also costs money. Sportsline may be $30 more than ESPN or Yahoo or whatever, but if you do the math, you are talking about like 3 cents a day difference per team.

I didn't say it was too expensive. I'm happily paying this price, but I can voice my discontent at a 25% increase in one year no matter what. I'd happily pay $200, but don't tell them that. :-D

Last year it was $129.95, I think, with no discounts. Instead they had their $50 Referral Fees.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Do they have a referral fee again this year? How does that work?
