Comrades - a hearty good morning and 'what the heck?' to you!
So, I thought we had a waiver process other than first come/first serve - and even then...sigh
OK, so here's the deal. I spent my second round pick on Deuce, so as his owner, I was well aware of his issue that arose on Monday, namely a season ending injury. So, hoping and praying that the owners in the waiver process ahead of me don't notice, I hop on early last night and queue up A. Smith (dropping my Ind backup RB). Site says restricted and locked for the week - so no luck.
So, I try in the middle of the MNF game last night - just hoping to queue up the pick. Same message. OK...not unexpected.
OK, so its a late WoW night, and at 1 AM CST (2 AM EST) I hop on after the game, and try the same thing. Now, it should have queued up a waiver pick, or allowed me, but nope, I got the same message. Tried it 4 times, even opening a new browser to try. No luck.
Bummer. So, then, I get up as 6 AM this morning, and figure the site is reset, and I hop on...and WTF (let me repeat - WTF) - Top of the waiver line, JimmDogg's adds A. Smith.
OK, whats up? (and this isn't dogging you out JD - I know you had no knowledge I was trying to pick him up). I tried no less than 9 times to pick up Deuce's replacement, hoping to salvage a season with a backup RB on what will now be a woeful team, and someone with a better record, hence lower waiver/FA claim slot, beats me by somehow picking in the 5 hour window that I slept.
Now, I know this kills my chances of getting A. Smith from some of the teams with worse records, but as a minimum, I ask that A. Smith's acquisition be reversed and he placed in the waiver process.
Last week, I looked at the records, and I was 3-1 - then Sunday, doing lineup, I'm 2-2. Did we fix some scoring issue or what happened?
