Confused...Sportsline official start date

Postby commence8 » Mon Mar 17, 2008 9:33 pm

I'm the commish of a H2H league in Sportsline. I have the option to start the league on March 25th or March 30th.

If I decide on March 25th, does the first week consist of ALL games between March 25th and April 6th?

Or is the first week only between March 25th and March 30th and the 2nd week March 31st to April 6th?

Answered my own question:

Tip
Use the Season Start Date feature to set the date you want your league's fantasy season to start. You have the option of choosing either Tuesday March 25th or Sunday March 30th. If you choose to start your league on March 25th, the two games that are being played in the Tokyo will be included in your stats and will extend your first week schedule accordingly.

soooooo..

I have the same question but am still unsure of your answer. If you pick the 25 th for your start date, how many games will week one contain? on the team pages it only shows I think 25th and 26th and 30th and 31st maybe?

week 1 consists of 3/25 to 4/6 (assuming your league's last day of the week is Sunday).

On the morning of 3/25 rosters will lock. If you use weekly lineups like my league does, no team will be allowed to change their lineup between 3/25 and 4/6.

I know the set lineup page only shows games between 3/25 and 3/31, but week 1 will also include 4/1 to 4/6.

i am in the same boat and trying to figure out what is most fair. if i start the season on the 25th, then teams with red sox and a's players get 2 extra games, which is a big advantage. if i start the league on the 30th, then the first week is 'fair', but the red sox and a's players will be playing 2 fewer games over the subsequent 24 weeks of the season.

i'm at a loss as to what is the right way to handle this in a h2h, points league. i don't want to give a big advantage to any team in the first week. and then again, i don't want to put an owner who happens to have sox or a's on his team at a slight disadvantage the rest of the season.

It is Sunday April 6th and I have just changed my season start date to March 25th from March 30th. I wasn't aware that this was an option since before it was done automatically. Will the stats from the Japan games update overnight? I tried to copy rosters back but it will only let me copy back from period 2. Teams have made many changes to their roster in the first week and this wouldn't work. Any answers are greatly appreciated as my owners are in an uproar as I told them the stats would count and I thought they would update autmatically as they did before.
