sounds pretty cool

You can put any of your players up on the "On the Block" page and then mention what positions & stats that you are looking to add (plus it leave room for comments). Trading has never been easier.

Yep, had to pay for it last year too. Weird thing was the few years before that when it was free, it ran much better. No problems, no bugs, servers were always up, etc. Last year, we had to pay for it, and it was pretty buggy. I would have thought that it would be the opposite. Oh well, maybe they will get their act together this year. We'll see.

FYI...Yanoo fantasy Plus had the "on the block" feature last year....Fantasy plus had a special price when our league purchased it last year..99.95...came with stattracker so a lot of guys didn't mind forking over $10, plus the winner got a replica jersey of his choice...they also reviewed trades so it didn't have to be done in house by impartial participants......had an excellent experience with the fantasy plus and don't see why we would switch

Well, I haven't tried fantasy plus, but the only complaint I've heard about it is that some league winners couldnt get the jersey due to being in states that don't allow games of chance.

CBS Gamecenter is ok, but is it really worth that much more than stattracker?

Yeah, but you gotta pay for Stat Tracker. At that point Yahoo ceases to be free! ;-)

yup, if you want any kind of interactivity with yahoo you gotta pay, i think its $10. Gamecenter is free to the public, but it becomes integrated with your league when u play CBS. To do the math for you, CBS costs $120 for commisioner league, customized stats, etc. and say u have 12 teams, thats $10... hmm.. strangely familiar to the price of stattracker. It all works out.

PS: we have 14 so it makes it even cheaper, even tho we pay 30 for a bigger prize.
