Then you hired a company that did the stats for your league. They would get them from Stats, Inc and compile them for your League and they would send you a weekly report. You did your transactions weekly. The Commissioner would take all the transactions for the week and CALL them into the stat service. I used to pour over the sports section every morning and read box scores. I used to bartend with some of the guys in my League and right after last call we turned on Sports Center to catch all the scores and such. Those were the days.
