So may times a trade will get overturned and no one will own up to it.


I guess it's not a really big deal to me, but I think veto votes should be public. Our commish (EPSN league) called one guy out who voted to veto every single trade last year (the commish could see veto votes). One reason to not make them public would be an owner vetoing a trade just for spite because he knew that that owner vetoed his trade. But I guess I would prefer to play in a more mature league to begin with.

Here's a solution. Eliminate vetoes!

At least noseeum and I arrived at a shared understanding over here; I still haven't managed to convert anyone over on the Dark Side. :-D

Among others.

But you're not one of the unofficial-self-anointed-nobody-knows-about-it-but-us Moderators of the Commissioner's Corner like noseeum and I are. ;-)

What they really need to add is an option for lineups to lock 30 min before EACH game of the day, not just the FIRST game of the day. I've renewed my league there, but if there's one common wish between members of my league, that's probably it. And we've said it for the last 2-3 years and I've written to CBS several times and suggested it. But CBS is generally very good.

I'd like rich text options when creating league news/message board posts, but those are lesser concerns.

I think it's likely they take their new homepage (cbssports.com) display style and put that on the main league pages.

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.


Yeah, But you are overlooking that there could some people who have pay it in the past without a thought about but because the economy in the tank and many losing there jobs and many worried they may. I can see there maybe be a few how think that's expensive when once they thought wasn't.

Those are two good ones - did you post them as questions on their help page? They have responded to some requests (like rankings this year), so the more people that make these types of suggestions, the more likely it is that they'll implement them.

Yeah, that's what I did. I also e-mailed Eric Mack about it.

It would be nice to be able to sort free agents by age ... especially helpful in leagues with prospects.
