GWJCFFL Moving to Yahoo! Sign Up Before Week Two!

With Fox continuing to mess it all up, we're moving. I've set it up as an offline draft so I will manually transfer your line in and even make it retroactive for week 1. I'm not sure if I can dictate matchups yet, I hate to say it but that may be one thing we'll have to swallow as part of moving to a stable service. If you lost, who knows, maybe your line will win against someone else. It sucks if that's the case, but we'll see. Some settings are not available on Yahoo that we had in Fox. Namely ranges for reception bonuses (0 now) and yards allowed for defense.

Easy enough to do, assuming everyone updates both lines.


Those of us who had longer names have to change to meet the shortened length requirement.

But since everyone has to include their forum name, it shouldn't be too hard to know who is who. I even cooperated this time instead of becoming The Warriors again.

All drafts (live, auto, offline) must be completed prior to 11:59pm PT on Saturday, September 10 in order to receive scoring for Week 1. Drafts occurring after that time will not be eligible to begin scoring until Week 2.

I still think it is worth haveing the league up and running on yahoo if Fox doesn't get it's act together but I seriously doubt they won't have the issues fixed before next week. I would like to stick with Foxsports for now and see how things pan out later this week.

Keep in mind if we DON'T get everyone signed up in time (I've contacted everyone now) this is all moot, we won't be starting a fantasy league from Week three. We'll have to tough it out with fox, if that's the case.

From the sound of the FOX forums, a lot of commishes are actually moving their league to's fantasy leagues with great success.

It's run by Fanball and looks very similar to how Fanball's set up (and makes me wonder why I paid $50 for Fanball!)

It's got free live scoring and customizable scoring (so you can do the sliding receptions scale and all the other [slur deleted] scoring features you so love, Certs)

And most important of all, just like Fanball, the commissioner can override EVERYTHING - meaning you can re-create Week 1.

I wish I had known about this before blowing the Yahoo trumpet. I also wish I knew about this before paying for Fanball! I don't know what I get at Fanball that they don't provide for AOL, except for fewer ads.

Can't join. Keep getting these messages:

• This league is not registered in this game. (Error #272)
• This league is from the free game. (Error #271)

You're clicking the wrong link, spanky. I'm assuming you're clicking the "Join a League" button... but notice that it's in a box titled "Fantasy Football PLUS" -- we're in a free league, which has a "Join a League" link (not button) below in a smaller box, to make you feel like less of a man when clicking on it. Not that this is the only reason that you're any less of a man.

My wife can be contacted 24 hours a day for the rest of the reasons.

I'm in. I vote a whole new draft

Certis give me Kyle Brady (TE Jac) instead of Javon Walker unless that is cheating. I think I picked him up yesterday (he was unattached) before things got wierd.

Noted, monsieur Swampy.

Just waiting on Pigpen and Fredster so I can make the roster move.

Now just waiting for Fred!


I expect whoever traded me Keenan McCardell to do it again...

McCardell, scmccardell.

Gents...can we suspend all waiver/free agent moves until we get this fixed up...rosters locked as they were in week 1.

Fair enough?

Some trades went through ok, they will stick. I know Grumps made at least one as well as Swampy and Sanj and I made one.

not talking on the trades...those are all fair in my opinion...but I put in for a few free agents, and now I got Shaun all waivers...not trades...should be null and void until we get this fixed...

With all due respect Piggy... no sh*t

Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!

Sorry guys...distracted with a new job. Certis, can you let me know my login info in a PM please?

Just like you said he would, Certis.

Can't trust them Cubans, you said. I wanted to believe you were wrong, but I guess I was naïve.
