I used free Yahoo for 9 leagues in the past few years, commishing 4 of them, and I had no major problems. The only problem we ran into was lack of customization. Overall the leagues were very easy to run and they have a nice easy interface to work with. I checked out AOL's interface this year and didn't like it from the start, but hey, it can be hard to change.
This year we moved our money league to myfantasyleague.com which has taken a while to setup but I think it's going to be worth it, it actually works out to be cheaper than a free Yahoo league because live scoring with Yahoo was $10/owner, whereas MFL was $8/owner.
