i think its stupid and useless.
why does the owners name need to be shown, how does that relate to anything?
it doesnt matter what the users name is, all that matters is showing the team name. if someone is looking to find the actual owner(which i imagine happens very rarely) im sure they can click the team name

Well its not totally useless. If you go to View All for Transactions, you can now select any team from a dropdown and see all transactions for that team. :-S

Yup, there ^ is the value IMO. In a small football league with some close friends, I'd change the name of my team every week just to include some smack in my team name.

I think it's a decent addition. But, I still think there should be user settings for this kind of stuff so that it's not simply forced on the users.

AMEN

This new feature is very offsetting IMO

Yeah, that is kinda cool (assuming that's new as well?).

Yeah, the sorting by team in View All for transactions is new, and pretty nice. Yet they could have done that without adding the IDs of owners everywhere. If you want to know the ID of an owner, all you have to do is click on his team name.

Oh, OK. I saw all the names and figured that I, the commish, had changed some setting and screwed something up. Good to know. :*)

Removes the usernames from the recent transactions, but not the messages (yet anyway):
