i dont know if this has been covered, and i guess this is a good place to ask. in my yahoo leagues, under League Notes it says "Your league will begin with the games played on Monday, Mar 30." ..but the first game of the season is not until April 6. so why does yahoo say games will start Mar 30? i doubt yahoo is going to count the spring training games that will be played through the end of March/early April.

So we need our offline draft results submitted by the 30th?
A way to get around this if you're having an offline draft after that date, or doing a slow draft that will finish after the date is for the commish to lock the teams and start the season before the 30th and then add the players to the teams off the waiver wire before the actual games start. This obviously won't work with a live draft through Yahoo.
I don't remember it ever working like this before, last year, though my memory may be fuzzy. There is always an opening day game the sunday before the full slate of games the next day, and I don't remember needing to draft a week before the game in order to have the first week count.
Also the new draft app loves to go to a "re-connecting" screen, hang up, and cause you to miss picks when you have to reload it. Really sucks when you are on 56k (we're still out there, unfortunately.)
