Because you're coming off sounding like you can't get it done without it.

If you're at a computer all day you still have the advantage, but nothing wrong with leveling the playing field for good managers who may not be stuck at a computer all day.

Okay...I sort of see where you're coming from, but you should still take advantage of this. I sit at a computer all day, just like you. But there is no way I can keep up-to-date on all the breaking news and still get my work done. If you set up Twitter to receive news from several of the key fantasy websites, and then feed your Twitter account into an RSS feed reader, you'll get a lot of your information delivered straight to your desktop. You choose the intervals at which you want to receive the updates (I choose 15 minutes), and a pop-up alert will appear on your desktop. It only takes 30 seconds to scan through the headlines...a big time-saver, indeed! I haven't looked yet, but I'm sure there are some other websites that don't do Twitter, but do offer RSS feeds, so you could throw those into the mix, as well. If you enjoy having an edge, then you really need to do this!
