Yahoo Stattracker free next season

It looks like Yahoo! will no longer treat its StatTracker service as a fantasy add-on or charge fantasy players extra to use it. Today, I received this email from Yahoo! concerning a 2009 Yahoo! Plus fantasy football league that I had already registered, paying the usual $125 fee:

Dear Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football customer:

This is a message to inform you that we are no longer charging a fee for StatTracker, our live scoring application for Fantasy Football. Our records indicate that you have already purchased a Plus League for the 2009 season.

Because of this change in programming, we are lowering the price of Plus Leagues to $29.95. As a courtesy, your account will be automatically refunded for the full amount of each league purchased at the original $124.99 price. You and your league's other managers may continue to access these Plus Leagues at no additional cost. There is no action required from you. Please allow 3-4 weeks for the refund to be processed.

Sweet! Not only has the price of Plus leagues been slashed, but, if I'm reading that correctly, my football league's status as a Plus league will be completely free of cost this season. One would presume that this will carry over into the 2010 fantasy baseball season, and that StatTracker -- which updates fantasy stats and league standings in real time -- will be free for all from here on out. No doubt, Yahoo!'s hand was somewhat forced by ESPN's increasingly robust no-charge fantasy service.

This is good news, but call me skeptical because I only will believe it when I see it. ;-D

Wow this is great news, I'd always pay for stattracker individually so thats an extra 10 bucks in my pocket... I wonder why they decided to change, they probably made some good money from it.

;-D Same here for me. They probably changed it because a lot of people were leaving yahoo for other sites that provide their own version of stat tracker for free.

Another item not mentioned is that Plus leagues have the option of having trade disputes resolved by Yahoo, in addition to the free options of commissioner control or manager voting.
