Best Free site?

Ok have been playing in a pay league for years. Starting a league for my kids but I don't want to pay for it. What is the best free site?

yahoo is definitely the best in my opinion. It is the simplest and has the best features. ESPN is okay, but not as good in my opinion. It really depends on what you're used to, but I'd recommend yahoo.

I've played in both ESPN and Yahoo! leagues and both offer pretty much the same stuff. I like the fantasy analysts and articles better at ESPN, and my personal preference for layout is ESPN, but either one is good for a basic, free league.

I like either Yahoo or ESPN ... pretty much like everyone else.

I give ESPN a slight edge because I prefer their FAAB system, but the kids may not care. I enjoy the ESPN analysts better as well, but I don't mind reading Andy Beherns stuff (or however you spell his name).

On an interface standpoint, Yahoo probably takes it. But really, you can't go wrong with free.

My preference is http://www.fleaflicker.com

It is not flashy but is a solid service and have never had problems. The rules, roster and scoring customization is miles ahead of Yahoo! and ESPN if you like to mix things up.

It also gives the commish a lot more control over tie-breakers and other issues that may arise.

If you're looking for a quick setup, average joe type of league, Yahoo! and ESPN are fine. If you want access to more commish controls and customization, I recommend fleaflicker.
