We used ESPN 2 years ago and it sucked. Every sunday you couldnt get onto the site due to the traffic, they had maintenance problems, the scoring was often wrong until tuesday when they fixed it etc. Maybe they have improved since then but we switched to fanball (~ $60 a yr) and havent looked back. Yahoo doesnt have live scoring unless you pay, in which case a site like fanball is way better.

The new yahoo! looks a lot more modernized, high tech. I haven't tried ESPN, but I hear it's crap from some guys that I know that played in it last year.

so your saying you don't like yahoo becaus eyou have to pay to get live scoring. So therefore you pay $60 to get it from fanball?

In my opinion, Yahoo is the best free fantasy football out there.

Yahoo live scoring was always (and may still be) about 10 bucks a head. This means it costs over a hundred for a league. Fanball is 60 bucks per league, and it also has many more cool features (esp for keeper leagues), though I admit I havent checked out the new yahoo which a few people above seem to rate. I guess my main concern is always how quick a site runs on sundays, which for ESPN and to a lesser degree yahoo is pretty cr@p.
