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.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
