This group doesn't seem high on roster restrictions, which is fine. We've been down that road. I do think we should go away from Yahoo simply because it sucks.

The updates are slow, options are severely limited, layout is lame...

This is a legit league now. I think everyone throwing in a few extra bucks for CBSSportsline, which makes for a much more enjoyable 16 weeks, imo, makes sense at this point.

Are there any other options besides CBS?

And yeah I don't like putting roster restrictions at all either, we voted on that last year as well.

I'm open to any suggestions. I prefer CBS, personally, but I'm definitely willing to try something new. NFL.com is offering a fantasy service this year I think. That might be good... ?

All I know is Yahoo is lame. We have a nice group of players now... It's like playing in an exclusive basketball league on a court with busted rims and no nets.

The fee isn't going to be raised, as far as I know, to sweeten the pot. If we decide on a superior fantasy service, people might want to throw in a few extra bucks, but it doesn't cost much.

I personally think Yahoo is just fine but I am in 2 leagues from this site:

http://www.myfantasyleague.com/

it is the best FF site I have ever seen, it is completely customizable from top to bottom, we can even bring in our own images if we want to make an ISH themed league...

here are some examples of leagues made on that site:

http://football99.myfantasyleague.com/2007/home/48818

http://football99.myfantasyleague.com/2007/home/19405

here are the leagues I am in:

http://www30.myfantasyleague.com/2013/home/33432#0
^^^ this is a Lord of the Rings themed league...yeah I work in the game industry, so that explains that.

http://www14.myfantasyleague.com/2013/home/54403#0
^^^ this league is awesome, it is 32 team league actually and each team is represented by the actual NFL teams...there are 2 of every player so that the pool is still good. That shows you how much you can customize this thing.

Defenders are there (IDPs), everything...and they have a huge array of layouts to choose from...



the only thing is, making a custom league on this scale takes serious work...I am an artist and could probably create some great shit for us, but I just don't think I can put in the time for that...:/

maybe we could just use one of their base layouts at first though and then I can add custom stuff little bit of at a time when I can...

Ya I'm in a league on MFL and it's pretty great. And as nifty as those leagues look, it's not like the base layout is going to be distractingly ugly or anything. What I like most is our waivers run Wednesday and Saturday night, and are always locked, there's never any free for all period. I think any league where you can instantly grab a player just b/c you happened to be online when a big news story (injury, suspension) hits, is kind of hard to take seriously. There's no skill in that. And the extra Sat night period gives you ample time to make any extra additions you need for Sunday. It's not as convenient as just grabbing whoever you want at the last minute before the games, but there's gotta be some tradeoff for fairness.

I've been in leagues on MFL before. It can be very cool as you noted, but it does take work and the league I was in wasn't willing to put in the time it would have taken to make it really cool. That's really the main thing with that league... If you have someone with enough resources/time to build an epic site, it can be great... If you are just using the default layout, I think there are better sites (CBS for example, imo).

It's up to you guys. I'm in favor of stepping up to a pay service, whatever it is. If you want to do MFL and slowly build it up to our customizations over a period of years, I'm cool with that and I'd help where I could.

I think we need to do a roll call to see how many new members we need. We def need one for Marlo but I thought SP was taking his spot.

I thought illini might have said something last year about not playing again but that might just be because him and marlo hated each other. I'm sure Dooms is good to go but just hasnt popped in.
