We did our cash money work league thriugh FOX sports this year, because they had free live scoring. HUGE MISTAKE :-P

They didn't post win loss records untill week 3, and they are wrong.
The rosters don't lock, for example week 4 someone had the Bengals DEF, started them, had the points, dropped them after the game Sunday night and lost the points, picked San Fran's DEF, and was able to start them.
Trades and waivers have taken one to four days even though our setting is 2 days.
No matter what computer you access the site from, there is a mandatory 3 refreshes per page in order to see it.
The live scoring jumps around more than Terry Bradshaw on crack, at one point yesterday my DEF had 80 points.
The transaction page was not visible until the middle of week 3.
Lets not even talk about their ranking system...by far the worst I've ever seen.

Anyone else having problems with FOX, please add on, I'm sure I'm missing a few issues, I've lost track there have been so many.

Yeah, we had our money league of Fox and we ended up dropping it after week one and move over to Yahoo when the server shut down. We weren't able to get the scores from week one, cause I would be 6-0 now, but that's alright, I'm just glad I don't have to worry about trying to access my team. I can't stand Fox and I'm glad we got on Yahoo. Almost thought about Fanball but I've heard bad things about that, and that's run by local guys from MN here, disappointing.

I have the same probably in one of my leagues too :-#. Fox is probably the worst fantasy site I have ever used. I couldn't even access the site without my browser freezing until week 3. I still have to make lineup changes through the commish, transactions are horrible, the live scoring is atrocious. Just a big :-t :-t :-t

I started my first team over at Fox, but after watching all the problems their web site was having, and noticing that 4 other owners left before the season started, I left too. Now Im using Yahoo and having no problems.
