It is almost inevitable at some point in the season we all feel a little drain...and mine usually comes around the ASB...I find that I need that little break to set my mind for the second half... :-°

But like Sticky said...going from a 11 to a 9 really isn't that bad... :-)

I just have problems with people who spread themselves way to thin by joining every league they can (just because they HAVE TO "draft")then hurting those owners they joined a league with by taking weeks to respond to trades..and neglecting there teams.

its easy to keep up with multiple teams in the early part of any season, just dont ruin my league because you can't stay away from a draft and a league invitation.

i found last year that having a minor's draft helps with the burn out. it's almost like anoter offseason of reviewing a new set of players.

I was running three of my teams all season and helping a few other owners; I got a little burnt out in the dog days of summer as well. And after the season was over I noticed an additional hour of free time per day that I had to fill the void with. I think I was a little over-taxed last year; it showed when I drafted a sub-par Fantasy Football team in late August.

I have definitely had the same feelings as this poster. Six months is a long season, especially if you are not in the running for a league championship. My favorite part of fantasy baseball is the draft, which really gets my blood pumping. After that, the appeal dwindles when the "start-up phase of the business" switches over to the day-to-day "operational phase of the business." I would prefer 6 one-month-long seasons to 1 six-month-long season.

ive noticed the past few years that when i joined like 5 or 6 free leagues on yahoo i would start to los interest in all of them and it would be hard to keep up with every single one, thats why now i just switch to have probably 2 to 3 leagues so i can enjoy those ones more

By losing interest, are you guys really meaning going dead?

I could never do that, as it is very disrespectful to the other players and I know how it feels when someone does it to me.

Normally, I check my leagues everyday. If I were to lose interest, I would probably check in every 2-3 days.

by losing interest i guess i mean not keeping up to my roster everyday and stuff like that, ill still change it every 3 or 4 days though but ill set up who will be starting for me in advance so that i dont have to get one everyday, therefore i dont exactly look at favorable and unfavorable matchups

I can't recall ever suffering a mid-late season malaise of the type many here describe. Perhaps it's because of the circumstances I've put myself in:
One league
$$
Fellow owners I know personally (and who need regular doses of verbal smack)
Daily transactions
Never been out of the playoff hunt

... or, could be I've just got a defective gene that doesn't allow fantasy baseball to lose its entertainment value ;-D
... would be like getting bored with brewing up another batch of IPA ;-)
