    Well both needed a significant blood transfusion after the season. The dispersal drafts had new owners active and that excited the die hard base as they could get in on the action... give it a year or two. I’d be surprised if LOD made it two more years considering the trajectory of board traffic and declining interest in fantasy in general; combined with the unappealing format of course

    The LoD just keeps getting stronger and stronger. It's always had a great group of owners, but with some of the originals falling out of favour with the rules and Fantrax and being replaced by eager owners it's just injected so much life to it. It also has by far the most discussion out of all the leagues.

    If i wasn’t ok with losing the money I probably would’ve done the $100 league to start. They also have $20, $50, and $500 I think. May be fun for people when leagues here die

    Im assuming as you buy-in for more, the more competitive it gets

    You can do FanTrax money leagues though.

    From a guy who quits multiple leagues, leaving his team's barren, which everyone foreseen. Stunned fucking midget.

    While the waiver system still needs some work, the strength of FanTrax is the ability to keep minor league players, so it doesn't need to be done manually. Additionally, when you're looking to add new players, you don't have to check to make sure they're not on somebody else's minor league roster first.

    Of course, that aspect would only appeal to people in dynasty leagues who have a strategy of keeping a farm (IN A DYNASTY LEAGUE).

    I agree with the first paragraph. That’s actually a nice plus over Yahoo for keeper leagues.

    That’s not really the unappealing part. The unappealing part is having absolutely no waiver availability; which is one of the fun parts of fantasy. Shooting off a rough guess but I’d say you have 10-12 guys watching it like a hawk and grabbing anyone interesting (and interesting is a big stretch) and there’s nothing left when someone more casual goes to look. Draft pics are worth pennies; so when you aren’t making the playoffs, some of your prospects may be sting, and your feet are stuck in the sand a bit, it’s not a good recipe for mass appeal. No doubt the 30 team “real” format is what appeals to the diehards the most but either you’ll have to contract or just ignore the fact that a decent portion of the league isn’t active

    Based on how the board’s traffic has declined and couldn’t even muster 8 people for PL... or even how low maintenance new leagues didnt even get a nibble.. thinking you’ll have 30 good owners 2 years down the road isn’t realistic

    People have been saying the forum is dying since at least 2003. Really it slows down a lot when the team isn’t competitive and picks up when it is.

    I absolutely agree with your prognostication, connorp, it's not a good trajectory. However, don't forget that the level of activity on this message board is tightly correlated with the on-field success of the Blue Jays, so if there is a resurgence with the Vlad/Bo wave, we could have a fantasy renaissance on this board. PL is far from the heyday of it's fabled 3-league relegation system, but that's also a symptom of the fantasy owners on this board drifting more towards deep dynasty formats. Redraft is for casuals, and the people who remain here are more obsessed baseball fans.

    I get it. It’s like you’re in a relationship and you’re like “this is awesome” and I’m the dude being like “take off the shades bro”... so we’ll just wait and see
