What they're saying...

I've used several pool hosts in the past, and this one beats them all. I liked the simple, practical interface that still sacrificed none of the useful features like matchup info, what-ifs, manager's notes, trash talk, etc. Result and standings updates were faster than I've seen elsewhere, too. Site admin was a breeze and, very importantly I've found, registration and sign-up for pool participants was relatively simple and intuitive. Most importantly, no ads, no need to sign-up for a general login to an omnibus site with many unrelated services (such as Yahoo), and an unambiguous privacy policy that never threatens to transfer to those of third-party sites lurking behind outside links (such as SportsLine). My participants were happy with the site, too. I'll definitely be back next year. - Heath Martin
