Thanks, @Dunknegg for noting that activity in moves/trades does not always equal participation. I was sent a good deal of trade offers this year that I didn’t accept, in both here and Thunderdome, because I didn’t agree with the value, and I wasn’t willing to wheel and deal. I still set my lineup every week, and am generally attentive, if not the type to firesale or agree to crazy trades. (The one time I traded Peyton Manning for Matt Hasselback notwithstanding.)
I’d vote for BL or ME, and I’d actually rank BL over ME for the mere fact that I’ve played in leagues with him longer and I know him IRL, but their merits are equal as board players as far as I’m concerned.
