Yeah, you're right there.

It's just hard to swallow in a high stakes league that is very tight.
Especially when you just keep getting these automated responses that make you wonder if they are actually reading what you write them.

I PM'd the Yahoo Genie a couple times but no response.

Having spoken back and forth via e-mail with a real person on a number of occasions regarding questions I had with respect to points leagues, divisions, etc. I can tell you that the e-mails (at least the ones I sent) get read. However, if your league is indeed as high stakes as you claim, then the easy suggestion would be to play it on a different provider, even throw a fraction of your pot into paying for it. It's well worth it. Nobody in the league I run ever has any issues with Yahoo! Plus, and we've got a $2,800 pot, but if they did, we'd have no problem throwing $100 of that at another provider who could give us what we want.

Yeah you're probably right.
I've never had any problems with Yahoo either up to this point, it just seemed like they could have handled it better.

I do like the Yahoo format though. What other sites are good other than just cbs, espn, etc?

All right...."No" is a bit strong. Most FF fanatics that I know personally or online seem to use MFL by a huge margin over Yahoo, CBS et al though.

I still would love to find a specialist FB site where their livelihood depends on the FB community, just as MFL depends on FF players.

After posing a question regarding having them suggest providers over on the Light Side, it does seem to be, indeed, the case. Of course it's not 'no', as he clarified, but the more serious players over at the Football Cafe, who are paying for service, are using that.
