Well nearly everyone is the key word. I am in 2 PPR leagues, 1/2 point PPR league and a TD only league. I enjoy the TD league as much if not more than the rest. All of them have there own challenges and I can adapt to any rules or scoring. I'm smart enough to grab up target monsters in PPR leagues and TD Vulchers in TD only leagues to go with the stars.
The point of dynasty leagues is not to play 3/5 years and quit or have the league fold. That's the problem with most dynasty leagues, they are only as strong as the owners. Why would I put tons of time building a team to only have the league fold up.
Anyone can take pot shots and if it doesn't work out leave. Trust me in 25 years we have only had 20 owners (8 Teams) over those years. One of them the son took over for his dad, another died. There are guys waiting to get into it. May not sound fun to a lot of the guys that think they are super smart and feel it's too much luck, but I'm here to tell you...no matter what scoring you have there is a tremendous amount of luck involved.
As for the looking at the paper? I did that in a couple redrafts around 1990 - 1993 and yes it was boring until things got firing on the Internet. Not having much of an idea if you won or lost until you checked box scores (which were only in papers) ? I didn't really like it but that's me. The reason I'm only in 4 leagues (besides weekly) is because I love to watch the games and root for my guys. The more leagues your in, the more players you have playing for you and against you at the same time. I'm not a pro hence the user name
