Yes its true that its the clientele with Yahoo. They do have a pay league though. I think its $15 or something so that could mitigate the issue.

Things are a bit better when Ive done private leagues in Yahoo, but inactivity still happens. Usually an owner will get disillusioned when their team gets too far behind, they have a slew of injuries, or they can't pull of a trade.

It is still the people though and not the service though.

If the only consideration is the service, then its Yahoo hands down.
I love mock drafts.

I simply don't understand why anyone would ever choose yahoo over espn. I play espn in my long time league and yahoo in a couple cafe leagues. Yahoo is tedious. Comparisons of players for trades and FAs are much more efficient on espn. Just my .02, anyways.

It's all preference. I have most of my leagues on Yahoo, but I had to play on ESPN for the industry league hosted by the FSWA, and I hated everything about it. :-D

I much prefer OnRoto.com to CBS for it's ease of use, flexibility, and responsive customer service. The cost is also significantly less.

ESPN Blows, Fantrax has alot of options, but fails to deliver a solid interface.

Nothing really touches the cleanliness of yahoo, but CBS honestly has the best combination of features and interface for my league, which is an auction keeper league. If I could take all my features with me, I'd go Yahoo. (Honestly at this point, it's just the draft room that kills it for yahoo).

Never seen the point in paying $200 for CBS, yes it's nice but once they went from $49 to $200, it was no longer worth it.


They are $89.99 for the first year with coupon and $149.99 for every year after that with coupon.

i hate espn also. No more leagues for me there. Even with the hiccups last year, ill still go yahoo over cbs. Yahoo is just easy and the interface makes sense, i like the draft room the best also.

Biggest problem with the draft room is the lack of unlimited pauses.

Yahoo

Especially since they support h2h points league.

other reasons:

Fantasy Profile
League History
Fantasy Genie
Ease of use

I am curious about Fantrax. I noticed it is not blocked at work (everything else is).
If God does not like the way I'm living my life, he can tell me himself.
