CBS >> Yahoo, imo.

That said, I've been using yahoo for my league the past few years. This year I recommended changing to CBS or MFL. But when I saw Yahoo's new prices, it was just too good to be true. $30 for the entire league and that includes free Stattracker for every owner. CBS premium makes sense in a high stakes league, but in mine, with $80 team fees, the payout is near 95% after Yahoo's fee. It would be much lower had I chosen CBS.

Yep it is, I was all ready to ditch yahoo but if I don't have to pay the 10 bucks this year why not stick with it. ;-D

I dont' really see what everyone has against it.

Sports Genie,

How long has Yahoo been 29.95 for the entire league? Something new? Great deal!

Paying for something that is just as good(or better) elsewhere for free ;-)

If that's top tier MFL then count me out. Yahoo! is the only place I play now. It's easy to use and operate and it looks great. I paid 124.99 last year for a Plus League and loved it. They dropped it down to 24.99 for the whole league this year and I'm stoked. I've played at CBS, ESPN, and others but I like Yahoo the best. Join a public league and try it out. I'll guarantee you'll be playing only yahoo.

That change occurred at the point we announced free live stats. We acknowledged that this was much of the reason people paid for Plus leagues, and dropped the price accordingly.

I currently have 2 keeper leagues on Fanball and today a team in one of our leagues was deleted for some reason....and that was the final straw. It has been one problem after another the past couple months.

All of our managers are very familiar with the Yahoo layout as we have been playing Fantasy Baseball on Yahoo for the past 10 years...so we would prefer to move the league to Yahoo. However...the ability to have year round access to the league is tops on the list of prerequisites to make the move. Does anyone know if year round access is available in Yahoo Plus leagues? I am not just talking about access..but also the ability to make trades, post messages, etc, etc.

I have checked out My Fantasy League as a potential site to move the league to...but I just do not care for the layout.

Any suggestions?
