fanball?

My commissioner is looking to move our league from cbs to fanball to save money. Has anyone had any experience with the site? All opinions welcome.

Played there for a couple of years and then about two years ago it was sold to new owners. Went back to play in 2007 and all I read in that chat room was how crappy the site had become and never went back. My suggestion would be to check out the chat rooms: those are the guys that are actually playing there and if they don't like it... :-?

2 years ago, we tried to move to fanball like right before the season started. I've used fanball for football for years and love it. However, the baseball side of things wasn't even close to football. I was expecting many of the same type of features as football, but they were't there. So we switched back to yahoo. We never actually used fanball for baseball, because I never made it past the setup of the league. There were players missing, and other problems with the options I had to set up the league. So I can't really say much more about it than that. I'll be sticking with yahoo, despite the limitations they have.

We started out on TQ in 2000, which was sold two years ago and is now Fanball. The 2007 season was a complete disaster. 2008 started off very, very badly. They eventually made enough changes so that it works for our league. We'll be staying with them for this season. It is not nearly as customizable as TQ stats was and they have limitations with FAAB, but my league doesn't use waivers. Their customer service is probably the worst I've ever had to deal with...but it's cheap and they finally meet my league's needs. If you have specific questions, let me know.

Is there a trophy case like on the Football side of Fanball?
Can we add historical info?
Can I view transaction from years ago?
Are the pages clutter with advets?
