Well, next Monday morning at least the season will be over, and there will be nothing that you need to do. It will be frustrating that you won't know until noon how you did, but...

My Yahoo league was updated in full at about 4:40 pm EDT
Wow.

I am a Yahoo loyalist but this is by far the worst problem i have ever noticed with them. I easily can deal with an evening where the stats are blank but a half-day or more of no updated standings? :-o

I suggest everyone run Stat tracker Sunday night. Yet that may cause a server collapse and the end of civilization as we knew it.

I'm out of both of my playoffs, so I haven't noticed. For those who are dealing with this, would you rather have this problem or the problems that were plaguing ESPN at the start of the season?

Naw, I believe we're only going to have the problem on Monday and Tuesday mornings because thats when the football leagues are being determined as well. Tuesday morning would be the worst because thats when they actually update the standings in ff. But the only other time I think we will have the problem is next Monday morning when we are trying to find out the results.

Yahoo is not just a little better than the other sites I have tried this year, but a huge leap forward. In addition to adding some nice features, the site worked all year. FOX was a complete disasater. I can't tell you how many times I couldn't update my team when I wanted to (often even the day before). ESPN had its huge issues earlier this year. SInce then, it's been great, but losing stats like that is just too much to offset.

I'd be interested to hear if others have sites they tried and were actually happy with. So far, no one I've talked to in my other leagues has found any they would use free, let alone pay for.

Sportsline has worked great all year. I've got two leagues over there and we've had zero problems. :-)

I also am not worried about the Yahoo delay (I've got three leagues at Yahoo) as I prefer roto leagues, but I can understand why H2H players are annoyed.

Consider me the sacrifice. It was a complete and utter disaster. Their playoff is a bit different too (not related to their quality, just different), with a one week final and an additonal 1 (or was it 2?) weeks of regular season.

No problems here on CBS Sportsline. There are a few simple things they could do to make it drastically better, but overall we had good success with it this year.
