Genie, can you change this for next year? Make 'Week 1' run for only 8 days from the Sunday night opener to the following Sunday, instead of the full two weeks from Monday to Sunday. This would allow drafts and roster submissions as late as the Saturday right before the season starts. Just a couple of lines of code, right? ;-)

that would be nice...i played weekly Yahoo last year and lineups had to be submitted like Sunday night rather than 30 minutes before the 1st game (or 5 minutes or whatever)

My draft client also frequently disconnected by the way.

I have Verisons fastest connection and had to auto draft after my first two live drafts were ruined by getting booted over and over.

Also happened a couple times during the draft to other people who weren't on dial-up.

It looks fancy and nice, but I never had a problem with the old Java draft applet. It's usually not a concern because I'm at school, but both my drafts happened to land when I'm home on break, and of course, stuck on dialup.
