Plus the fact it keeps league records for everything makes it an ideal hub. That being said there has to be a third site out there that combines it all into one package.
Of course MD. I know where you're coming from.
As for the idea of a hub, I can see why this part of CBS could be useful, however I am a huge fan of forum based backbones. Every Dynasty League I've participated in is forum first. Some guys don't like that approach, I think it's fantastic. It may take a couple more minutes when confirming a trade or signing FAs, but that is what I have always done.
Last season, I had three leagues that ran off of the Fantrax engine, so I guess that is where my personal preference comes from. I still haven't explored CBS and I probably won't this season. I realize my team will suffer because of it, but I really have no motivation to play around.

I share the same sentiments. Maybe that was my reasoning in accepting a gig at Fantrax over exploring the CBS route.
