Question about LS and LV

Postby MadDog36 » Tue Feb 01, 2011 11:41 pm

I've just checked out leaguesafe and leaguevault, although apparently you have to host your league through them if you want to do their finance management. Is there any site like these that allow you to keep the league your in where its at w/o having to set everything up again from scratch, j/w?

Thanks.

I have noticed that, and seems people want that. I just can't see on LeagueSafe's page it says you have to create a league with them, I'm confused. That would be counter-productive to switch and I'm not doing my keeper leagues on a pay site, sorry.

I think you're reading this incorrectly... LeagueSafe requires you to "set up your league" only in that they want the list of owners/teams that will be putting money into each account (and setting up your in-season costs and after-season pay-out structure), not that they'll be running/hosting the stats of your league on a day-to-day basis.

In fact, right from their FAQ:
Does LeagueSafe work with my online commissioner service?

LeagueSafe runs independently, so we're not beholden to any particular online commissioner service. No matter which service you use, LeagueSafe can handle your league's finances.


At the end of the season the commish of your league assigns the winnings to the appropriate teams (pending approval by other owners, depending on your settings) and the winners in your league go to the Leaguesafe site and have their payments sent.

Leaguesafe has zero involvement with the "fantasy" aspect of the league. Their only involvement is with the collections/payouts.

Fantasysportsvault.com appears to have an almost identical setup...

In fact, if you go to their "FSV Player Hub - Join a League" and read through the details of the leagues looking for players, they tell you right on there if they're hosted at Yahoo!, ESPN, CBS, etc.

In fact, they don't even care what fantasy sport you're operating with. Football, baseball, hockey, NASCAR, golf, celebrity death pools, whatever. As long as you've got a Start Date and an End Date to use for your collections and payouts, they don't seem to care how you run your league or who's in it.

Now there is something I could get into. I will take Charlie Sheen within two months. (grin)

Zsa Zsa Gabor, Kirk Douglas, Bob Dole, and Kim Jong Il would round out the top five on my board.

But that's morbid... and stuff... :-S
