head to head rules
If its so wonderful, why do estimates show that 80-90% of fantasy baseball players play Roto? I suppose those same 80% of players don't get bored year after year after all.
The second year I played in my big money league I was in 11th after April, in 3rd at the ASB, 1st in August, and back to 6th at the end of the season. Now tell me again how managers are "done" after a certain point in the season? Again, I think you guys are stuck in this mentality that there is always 100+ points seperating 1st from 12th and that half the managers quit. That does not happen if you find the right leagues and we keep giving you guys examples of how teams can win or lose right up to the last day.
