Sandbox was my first fantasy sports site. Football '99 I believe. Very easy to use & intuitive, I played baseball and football there for what, 3 years? Right up to the peak usage fiasco. Even at that point I was quite angry with the lack of customer service and condescending attitude, and am I the only one that got absolutely bombarded with SPAM? Worst mistake of my life was registering at Sandbox with my company e-mail address. Little did I know only a few weeks later my inbox would be flooded with ~200 messages a day. Everyone in my league was getting the same crap. Fortunately we installed a pretty damn good spam filter at work or I'd still be getting that Sandbox generated crap I'm sure. Thank you once again for selling us down the river Sandbox.
And I agree with what others have noticed, there seems to be a creepy cult-like allegiance to the site from some very vocal group of people who congregate anywhere there's any kind of criticism of Sandbox. Happened even DURING the peak usage crisis. 95% of the message board was giving Sandbox the bird, and 3 or 4 people were vehemently defending their every move. "Just bend over and take it, it's only $4 a month..." And sorry guys, I simply can't recognize them as a separate entity and agree to wipe the slate clean just because that they've added 'plus' to their name.
If they've finally truly seen the light, good for them. Maybe noone playing there now will ever know the frustration felt by anyone who ventured there in the past. But for those of us who've been shafted, are able to recognize that we were shafted
, and moved on, I'm sure Sandbox will see few if any of us ever again.
