Where all of the enty fees go into prizes. I don't get why CBS sportsline keeps over half the money when it clearly does not cost them much to run the league since they have thousands of free leagues.

They are a business. Don't you think they earn the money they keep?

Before my money league broke up, we used Yahoo. It's free, if you want Stattracker you can pay the $10. And all of the money for entry fees goes into prize money.

In fact I tried to use this argument for using Yahoo for my money football league this year, because I hate seeing $120 go up in smoke when it could go into prizes. But I was shot down and we were back with CBS. :-t

I don't mind that CBS charges to let you commish your own league, but for gootball, they charge $40 for a 12 team league and they only pay out $200. It's absurd.

This is why you either create one yourself or join one that is advertised here. CBS makes a TON of money off Fantasy Sports, but they also put out a pretty good product. There support sucks, but you can't have everything.
