In the last five to ten years the Fantasy Sports Stat Service (or League
Management) Business has transformed from an industry encompassing a large
number of small, specialized sites catering primarily to an audience of hard-core
players with custom, non-standard rules into one involving just a handful of
very large, media-driven sites targeting the much larger market of casual
players comfortable with a standard, basic set of rules. This shift has
created a gaping void in the ranks of reasonably-priced providers capable
and willing to support specialized rules and scoring options required by
old-school, long-time players.
OnRoto.com was formed in 2008 by two of the former owners of TQStats with the
intention of filling that void -- originally for Baseball, and starting in
2010, for Football as well. Our goal was (and remains) to provide a platform
for more sophisticated fantasy players -- those who prefer to play by their
own rules because they're after a Fantasy experience that's a whole lot different
from the generic, standardized (and rather bland) version offered by the
multi-media behemoths. A service where the people who built and support the
site are hard-core players themselves -- guys who know what people are talking
about when they ask detailed questions about custom features, and not just
some generic programmer in a job-shop half the world away.
During our lengthy tenures in this business, we've handled (and honored)
requests for almost every imaginable custom rule -- scoring, transactions,
etc -- and we've designed and developed OnRoto.com to be as flexible and
adaptable as possible. If your leagues uses a quirky, custom rule, the odds
are good that we're already set up to handle it. If not, just ask. We'll
certainly understand what you're after, and we'll very likely be able to
set it up for you.
As we have every year, we're going to charge $99 per league in
2014. We don't require payment until May for baseball and
October for football, which means we
offer a rather lengthy free-trial period. We encourage everyone to give
us a look, and by all means pass along comments and suggestions.
