ESPN is CR@P!!!

Postby UNDEFEATED » Sun Feb 20, 2005 5:24 am

I can't believe ESPN is already charging people to view information about '05 fantasy football. $19.95 to read last seasons stats and articles based on speculation. OMG this pisses me off. I was in an ESPN league and thought the subscription would at least last until the mid to early summer. Anyways. I enjoyed the Fantasy Tools and am trying to use them. But was sadly denied access. What junk.

BTW i was invited into the ESPN league. I did not make the decision to run the league on that site.

Actually I saw your post and tried it myself and it's not working for me either. That shouldn't be since I'm only in 2 years of a 3 year keeper league so I am technically paid up for 3 years of that Fantasy Football Edge.

I've seen this before, where they are just mucking around with the site and they make everything look like a permissions issue when the pages are just under construction. Try again in a week or two.

Side note: ESPN is definitely the worst site I've used. Even as a sworn enemy of CBS's fantasy site I have to admit it was better than ESPN's.

On Espn i enjoy all the articles and insight they provide as bad or good as they may be. I am an Engle guy. I hate Karabell. Len is definitely good too. And that cockcroft guy sucks. Look at his name. :-t

The only good thing about that site is Len. If it wasn't for him I'd never visit that site again. :-t

I still can't believe people would actually pay to receive their fantasy crap. I'd rather do it alone or you could use the best = The Cafe!

I hate ESPN for this and so much more. Very much like them to do this. It simply makes me shy away from them

I'll never pay for any fantasy information. You have all you need to know right here on the internet for free, and some of the cafe members are much more knowledgable than any so-called expert that is collecting a paycheck for putting out crappy information that is simply common knowledge.

The Cafe is good for peer to peer information, but every year I suscribe to The Huddle. Easily the best fantasy football site out there, by miles and miles. It has tons, I mean tons of information on it every day, injury reports, and a lot more. And for only $18, it's really worth it, fork over a 20 and your loaded for the entire football season. They seriously are experts...I'm not kidding...on that site they really know their shit. Those who are complaining that they'd never pay anything for fantasy information have obviously never done it before...or at least never gotten a subscription to The Huddle...it's currently free from now till like August or so, I suggest you check it out if you're looking for a good site. http://www.thehuddle.com

But charging now is just stupid...

I was at the Huddle last offseason... and did like the quick news, and the professional articles. But when pay period came around, I took an easy pass... no contest.

The Cafe has just as quick info, if you surf the forums correctly, and the people here are much more easy going. The Huddle is an alright site, but no way is it worth paying. It's all about free info.

Hail to the Cafe... ;-D
