How is the Live Scoring? That seems to be a major factor in my leagues decision.

I'm curious what scoring it doesn't cover that you want?


sure thing pete, in our scoring you can only get points for yardage, OR Tds. We award points for Tds by length as in 5 for 1-10, 7 for 11-40, 10 for over 41. We also award 10"bonus" points for 100 yards rushing, 125 receiving, and 250 yards passing.
So you can either take the 10 point bonus if you qualify, or the tds, whichever is more. So usually we only have to subract 10 points, or the value of a single td.
We found that since this is a highly cash oriented total points league where there is essentially no "limit" to how much you could lose in terms of money, that those who got the bonus and Tds ended up running away with the league and hence the money.
ADMIN edit: please note that the overall sig limit is 12k - thanks!

Holy... Gamedayritual, in my opinion, has best features of all but it's kind of too pricey for me.

Jace - gamedayritual may seem a bit pricey but it's important to note that they are offering a unique experience that you can't get out of the standard leagues. The system has a lot more work put into it than a standard site too as they have had to program an AI of sorts for the players to work in the Free Agency Blitz so it's more than just setting up some stat collecting...

I have yet to pay for a FF site to play on (my two teams on gamedayritual this year were free as promos to get word-of-mouth interest in the site - kinda like a crack dealer giving the first hit for free!) but next year I plan on setting up a money league at GDR and will gladly pay for the service...

One of my money leagues is using myfantasyleague.com. It's the first time I had ever used it. I like it. It is VERY thorough. As an owner (I am not commish), you can customize your home page to show whatever stats and rankings you wish. The list of customizable choices is very long too. You can put things like standings, top free agents, trade bait, WW moves, match-ups, weather, injury reports, etc right on your homepage.

I have used Yahoo and EA FF sites and mfl.com is the best of the three.

wow, GDR looks really intense. That's a high maintenance league right there! I would love to do that sometime.
