I'm back!

 

I think that C-bot said something about doing this too.

 

IF everyone agrees this should go to ESPN though because their site is WAY better and doesn't suck as much as yahoo.

 

I would probably play if it were on ESPN. I tend to forget to check things on yahoo as I rarely ever visit the site.

Yahoos Fantasy setup is totally lame. I love ESPN how they have the fantasy cast and all. It's wonderfully done and I"ve used it for five or so years now...Prefer it way more than Yahoo...

 

I think we just over throw MJ and take it to ESPN...:p

The one money league I'm in is an ESPN league. I don't have a strong preference for either one to be honest, since I'm comfortable with both interfaces. We have the history in Yahoo, which is nice, but it shouldn't be something that anchors us to it.

 

I'll probably end up with leagues in both places regardless.

If someone wants to take over, they are welcome to.

 

I really do prefer Yahoo because ESPN's website is bloated and takes way longer to load than necessary sometimes because I have to wait for an animated ad overlay of Troy Polamalu to run across my screen or something while I frantically look for the little "x" to close it when I go to a new page... :rolleyes:

 

Also, the fantasy tools are not as fluid. Comparing information or even finding information requires way too much click depth and the site loves to dump you off at an inconvenient place as you browse around. As someone who may actually have a hand in making websites for a living at some point, I'd like to find out who runs their fantasy app and shake him vigorously.

 

But, if I'm the only one who cares, I can't force people to play. I usually run things because of the legacy junk is linked to my Yahoo account. I'll be much busier this year, so I wouldn't mind someone else taking control.

I agree with all of this

If we decide to do it on Yahoo, I will be able to run it again so we have all the history and junk. It's easy to run something if all the work has already been done... :p Though, if we don't, I'd rather just be a team owner.

 

What we CAN do is run two leagues, one on ESPN and one on Yahoo. We've got plenty of posters in here and it's been a day since the thread opened. It'll be like the NFL and AFL... :p

That seems like a good idea.

 

I'd do the ESPN and be a filler if need be for Yahoo...I really hate Yahoo their system is so flawed...but I'd play a gain...:)

<p>Count me in for the Yahoo Sports league! <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p> </p><p>

My email has changed since last year though; so, if/when things are sent out I can give my new one.</p>

So here's the list of interested folks so far, along with stated preference of platform (if I've misinterpreted your intent, please let me know):

 

Wallbanger - Yahoo or ESPN, no preference

Shaynes23 - Yahoo

imarevenant - Yahoo

BHK1978 - Yahoo or ESPN, prefer Yahoo

moon_lit_tears - Yahoo or ESPN, prefer ESPN

i effin rule - ESPN

mjdgoldeneye - Current Yahoo commissioner, would play as owner only on ESPN

masterded - Yahoo or ESPN, no preference

Eisen-verse - Yahoo or ESPN, prefer Yahoo

Mr T Jobs To Me - Yahoo

Stennick - Yahoo or ESPN, no preference

ShadowedFlames - Yahoo or ESPN, no preference

Astil - Yahoo or ESPN, no preference

Makhai - Yahoo or ESPN, prefer ESPN

Crychon - Yahoo or ESPN, prefer ESPN

JMan2k3 - Yahoo

 

I can definitely see a league going on each site, especially if we have more folks express interest. At this point there isn't enough to have two completely separate leagues (i.e. no one owner having teams on both sites), but there's still time - I don't want to be drafting for at least a few weeks, but we can't wait until the last minute to schedule either.

 

EDIT: I'll update this post as others express interest.

I'm in... ESPN or Yahoo!, prefer ESPN. I'd also prefer we waited until after Pre-Season W3, that's the last big injury week, and there's always at least one killer...(dude who owned Arian Foster in a couple leagues last year.)
