I voted to stay with Yahoo! but it doesnt really matter to me either way. I've never used espn or aol's fantasy football and yahoo is more of a sure thing.

I voted other and I really like AOL also. I 've used it the last two seasons in one of my leagues and it runs smooth with free live scoring.

Voted for AOL. To be perfectly honest I really dont care which site we use though. I have run the King of the Jungle on AOL for the last two years rather smoothly. The only thing I didnt like about AOL was the Live draft feature which did not include a chat feature and some members had problems getting in. Seeing we do a draft here at the Cafe it would be no problem to enter the rosters over to AOL.

Just got back from vacation & I realized that I didn't vote when I set up this poll. :-? :-/ :-b

It was a very good vacation. ;-D



Anyway, I voted for other. I really didn't like using yahoo! last year. In the past, I always used sites that provided free live scoring. Then last year I played all my leagues on yahoo. They only allow 4 teams per user ID so I had to have 2. Even though $10 isn't a lot of money...I decided not to pay for something that I used to have for free.

That's honestly no big deal. The worst thing to me was the way they do their waivers. The way they do it is total crap. NFL.com does it the right way. We had to come up with a crazy PM system just to try and emulate the way waivers should be done. From what I've heard, AOL has both: free live scoring & the correct waiver system.



We still have to hear from DJF (I know he's really busy at school and should have more time soon) & maddog. Right now the vote is 5-3.

Stay with Yahoo!

All 5 that voted for a different site want to go with AOL. So if that wins and the 6th vote also likes AOL, we'll go with AOL. If the poll ends up tied we'll deal with that later. I won't PM DJF or maddog. I know DJF is busy and he hasn't opened the PM yet. maddog read it so he'll post eventually. ;-D ;-D

I voted stay with yahoo, maybe I'm just old-school, but I think it would be best to go with the traditional site.

In the event of a tie, the status quo wins, right?

Sorry for the delay. I'm not a huge fan of ESPN's site, and really my only problem with using Yahoo last year was the lack of a bench due to the total roster size limit.

Unless we've got a more accommodating and free site available, I say Yahoo.

We never really discussed what to do when a vote was tied. I'll say that Dude is right. The status quo (yahoo) should win due to the tie.

So we'll use yahoo again.

I'll leave this open a little longer just in case anyone wants to change their vote. ;-D

When Should The Draft Start?

Postby flotsamnjetsam » Fri May 18, 2007 2:20 am

Just starting a thread to discuss when we want to start our draft this year.

I'd like to start it sometime in July but I'm open for anything.

Thoughts?
