So if you run a free Yahoo! league, you can choose anytime for live draft in July?

they did this last year didnt they? All viable sunday / saturday spots were filled and no vacancies. as the season drew closer times started opening up.

if they do shut out free leagues from saturday / sunday, than depending on what my league chooses we may be playing elsewhere.

I've got some August week-end dates on a few of my leagues, but I signed up like almost the first day Yahoo opened Fantasy Football. And I'm poor, so I'm real, real grateful for what Yahoo offers for free. Me yahoo hobo too and proud of it!

Yeah we've got a weekend date in August as well. Looks like they must've just started this.

One of my private custom leagues has a draft on saturday night in August but I signed up the first day they were open. They probably just had a small number of weekend slots available.

If its a serious league then $20-30 per player entry should not be too much to ask for months of enjoyment. Hell, we do $30 each and it covers teh site fee (RT sports) and a kicking draft / poker party which includes all the eats and drinks you can handle, trophies etc.

RT Sports stays active and accessible year round and gives our group an open forum to stay in touch and BS about anything year round... Definately worth it!! ;-D

I also join a "free" yahoo league but its definately second fiddle and rarely do all the members even care....

I'm surprised yahoo does anything for free at all. They're pretty much the only service that does it for free anymore.

It's like this every year. Times will open up as the summer progresses. They keep a certain amount of dates and times locked up for the pay leagues at first then open them up to the pubklic as the summer progresses. The time slots will be there just keep checking back.


But if you're doing it with a bunch of friends the best way is a live offline draft. So much fun. And you have to do your home work cause the computer isn't there to help you out.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
