AVOID FOX SPORTS LIKE THE PLAGUE!

Did a league last year with my work on Fox Sports....The worst site i have ever used for Fantasy.

Half the time their site was down completely, the other quarter some things would be there and some wouldnt like your entire lineup or players to add and the last quarter their points were wrong for days!!!! and i dont mean they input them wrong, i mean they had problems where the points it showed you had by the end of sunday wouldnt be right and they wouldnt correct the errors until tuesday!!!!

Hmm... I didn't think FoxSports was all that bad...

Then again, I've always thought the plague just got a bad rep, too. ;-7

Kidding, kidding... everyone should know by now to pass on Fox Sports, but it's always nice to get a reminder to new owners.

My friend's brother is actually the VP of Fox Sports (online) and they are aware of the problems. Many of the problems were MS based, and the relationship was to be severed. They haven't yet, not sure why.

My Yahoo draft this afternoon got messed up, luckily it happened in round 12 and not round 1 or 2.

Both me and another pwner drafted one player, and Yahoo gave us someone else. The player I wanted was a D, and likely will be available once players clear waivers. No biggie for me.

The other guy was pissed though. He missed out on Barlow, and probably needed him since he ignored RB and drafted 4 QB in the first 11 rounds instead.

He took Manning in the 1st, T Green in the 6th, Warner in the 9th, and Plummer in the 11th.

I'm not against Manning in the 1st and would do it myself under the right conditions, but that would dictate that you DO NOT draft another QB until you have stock piled your RB's and WR's.

Thru 6 rounds he had only Droughans at RB. :-t

I can't believe they haven't improved. That dooms them pretty much.
