Camaro5 Fantasy Bowl III hosting site (new poll)

CBS costs money, so it's out, and no one voted for head2head.com

We have one day to make our votes. I will be closing this tomorrow night.

I had originally thought CBS cost money but when I checked I saw they had Free Leagues too... or is it the setup doesn't have all the bells and whistles we want.

CBS has free leagues that they make, If you want to be a commissioner and host your own league, they have a $30 off promotion, but no free leagues unless I'm blind.

ESPN totaly rocks. Mlee is just bitter about the Chargers.

Why I like ESPN: VERY easy to read and understand. User freindly. My son plays in our family league. He's 16 now and back when he was 10, he could totaly understand and find everything. Even I had a hard time with Yahoo last year. Maybe becasue I'm accustomed to ESPN but they did have a year where their 'Smack Talk' was down, but you can see all the smack talk right on the screen and their fantasy cast is awesome.

Why I don't like Yahoo: Hard to find stuff. text and smack is much smaller in comparison, and the bench is not even seperated. Hard to keep track of the whole league on one screen AS the scoring happens. Slow response time between screens.

It's like Yahoo is Peachtree accounting software, and ESPN is Quickbooks.

ESPNs interface is just so much more simple and yet has the same or more info.

Just my opinion, but Mlee, I am curious why you don't like ESPN?

Personally, I think ESPN has a better drafting application, and I use them for fantasy cast, but in terms of setting up your team, yahoo wins no contest.

You can view your roster's opponents, make lineup changes weeks in advance. You can view stats by week/to date without having to click on their names. It's already there, whereas ESPN has the previous week and total.

ESPN also doesn't keep your history of leagues you've been in and what you ranked in those. I have no record of the three leagues I participated in last year and that kinda bugs me.

ESPN does keep the history of your previous leagues. I was just viewing the final stats from one of my money leagues from last season. The history can be found when you're on the homepage of your league. It's between transaction counter and email league. You can also view your opponents roster by clicking on preview.

I was talking about your roster players. What team they face say in week 6.

And the history you speak of is that of that league in particular. My profile doesn't have "played in this league, got 3rd of 16" with a link to the season results.

I gotcha. It will show you who your players are playing up to 4 to 5 weeks out I believe. When you're in "my team" click on schedule.

The history I was referring to will show you the history of the particular league you're logged into at that certain time. Final records, scoring and standing.

I have only used CBS, but ESPN sounds great to me.

Mindz, check this out. Click around to the previous years. It's all there. Rosters, apponents, scores, stats, everything.

I think it has to be a continuation in the system. If a whole new league is started then it gets erased?

But we've been playing ESPN as a family league, even back when it wasnt' free. I think it started out at like 85.00 or something.

Only league I have available to click into to get to that screen is the new league I created in case ESPN wins the site hosting. It says "this league is in the inaugural season...no stats are in the database" type message.

ESPN doesn't have something like this...
