Sandbox.com FF

Is it just me or does Sandbox.com just suck now for fantasy football? I love their format but their website performance is utterly horrible. Half the time it's "database temporarily unavailable" , then I just got a "Game temporarily offline" notice. I know they're a bit strapped financially and that's why they've gone with the Peak Usage dealie but the least they could do is get their damn_servers to work correctly.

I agree that it does suck, but I'm in first place in my league so I dare not leave.

I'm also using sandbox. The performance definitely sucks. I can usually get through with persistent refreshing, but if I were on dialup I'd be pretty bitter.

I've given up on Sandbox. Sandbox has gone down the toilet in recent years. For fantasy football, I'm using NFL.com.

Sandbox is the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.
Aw, I gotta go. My damn weiner kids are listening.

It's obvious they had plans to go to peak usage well before week one and before all the teams were signed up. Lure us all in then sell us this crap. I've already had two teams abandon in my league because of this.

Not to mention all the spam you get after you sign up. This is definitely the last year for me with them.
