Outside of paying the stupid Yahoo fee for live stats, I don't buy any service. It's necessary. (I'm not just saying that because Razzball is free with free player raters.) There's so much available online for free. You get more than enough to make educated fantasy decisions.
Rudy buys a few for stats (Prospectus, Bill James, etc) but that's just to put the player rater together. If he wasn't putting together the player raters, I don't think he would buy them.
Appreciate the personal response. I think you're right. I should be re-thinking what I am doing and not be so concerned about what "they" are telling me to do...
