Have you ever heard any whisperings of that being considered? Could you imagine seeing those upgrades in the near future?
We're tired of CBS, and we're considering Fantrax (but ideally, we'd love to move to something that felt a little more reliable than Fantrax like ESPN or Yahoo).

I find it hard to believe that $10 per person is a big deal in one of those more advanced leagues. My main league DID switch from CBS to ESPN to Yahoo, but that was exactly because it was a pretty low entry ($50), simple keeper league with standard 5x5 cats.
Bloody Sox wrote:Ah... gotcha. Yeah, CBS has a few "features" (or lack thereof) that always bugged me, and I always complained about them, and they always said they'd take a look, but nothing was ever done about them. So I can understand where you are coming from. Yahoo has improved by leaps and bounds over the last few years (thanks in huge part to Genie here at the Cafe), but asking for dynasty league support might be tough.

That's the biggest hurdle for them to be a viable dynasty option. When your player database doesn't include players like Bryce Harper and Mike Trout, it's impossible to get anyone to have a dynasty league that that includes a minor league component.
If they just did that, most of the rest of the issues would be small potatoes.
