I would recomend fanball. I have used yahoo, and it's hard to navigate sometimes. Fanball you can easily look up stats. Plus you have live scoring. So you can look up stats at anytime. Oh and by the way it is a minnesota company. I have heard nothing but good things about cbs also. I wouldn't use yahoo, unless you want to use a free site. I think fanball is around sixty dollars for the whole league.

My league is going into our third season with fanball. Seems to work well and is cheaper than some of the others.

Sandbox and Fanball for pay sites. CBS and Yahoo for the freebies. With most fantasy sports, you get out of it what you put into it. The sites are all a little bit different but you can get them to do what you need them to do.

Fanball is a bit of a headache though. They were having server issues last night (our draft night) and this morning I can't even get on their site. One of the other members of my league said the other night the other fanball league he is in got halfway through their draft and the site crashed on them

I've never used the draft function with fanball, but other than that it's been great for our league the past two years going on three now. Plus they have a mobile site for access with a internet enabled phone. Compared to the price of CBS it does the job just fine although they do have issues every so often. A buddy has been using CBS for quite a few years and he tells me they have their fair share of issues also, so I don't think it really matters.

This time of year is touch and go for fanball, way too many drafts going on. we have had our leauge on there for 4 years now, going on 5 and it seems like they never invest in enough server to handle the load at this time of year. I dont even mess with the live draft feature, I've heard way too many horror stories. Other than that, from a commsioners point of view, fanball is the best. Easy to set up the leauge, has more scoring systems than you can dream of, latest news, and if I want to see who won the matchup between me and a buddy 4 years ago, with all the stats of that game, it's only a click away.

    • that worked today    friend was throwing jerk bait and 4 nice eyes slammed it. funny!   
    • Cooler than normal temperatures, clouds and rain dominated the last week and slowed down the spring progression, including bird migrations and fish spawning. However, a warm-up in the next couple of weeks could change that quickly.River systems across the entire state are running very high, and while the Memorial Day weekend has traditionally been a popular paddling weekend, recreational safety specialists are cautioning that only experienced and properly outfitted paddlers should be on rivers when they are running this high. The Lower Wisconsin River set a flow rate record this week of 42,000 cubic feet per second at Muscoda and there are no sandbars available for camping. The river is running fast and deep, with some boat launches under water.Fewer anglers were out this week due to the rain and cooler weather and those that were reported mixed success. Along Green Bay one hot spot has been out of the mouth of the Pensaukee River where anglers have been catching limits of walleye. White bass anglers had a great deal of success, with some harvesting more than 20 fish from a few hours of fishing. .
    • I believe they use the same blades so I wouldn't expect much of a difference.   
    • So what is the difference between the Lazer Synthetic and just a plain ole Lazer hand auger when it comes to cutting ice with a hand drill?  Lazer Synthetic is lighter but does it cut any better?

    • My family is going to be headed to Birch Lake near Babbitt, MN in late June for a week on a houseboat.  This trip is a graduation present for our oldest and I am hoping to make it a week to remember.   I would appreciate any advice ranging from fishing locations, bait, suggested lures, and even sites to see on the lake.  I have done a lot of searching on Google with the hope of finding someone who maybe spent a week on a houseboat on Birch but not a lot of luck.  I have about a month to prepare for the trip so I greatly appreciate everyone input.   Thanks,  
    •     I have had good luck with the "My Plate" app.... It is annoying enough to keep you honest, but simple enough to use.
    •   Yeah well once you fire that bad boy up and show her how it works, she will get impressed pretty quick! 
    • In regards to casement windows, I have always been a fan.... Primarily, because the harder the wind blows, the better seal that you are getting. Don't get me wrong - there are drawbacks such as size restrictions, maintenance of the cranking mechanism, etc... but I like them
