YES!!! Dumb logic that forces me to drop a player in order to add a DL or NA player when I have a free DL and NA roster spot.

So Yahoo is down right in the middle of the busiest time of Fantasy Football Draft season? Are you kidding me?!
Drafting in less than an hour and I cant even open any of my leagues.


Not to mention I cannot edit any of my lineups before the A's/Angels game starts and I have Kazmir on a ton of teams.

Now for something somewhat related and completely random...

This is the first time I've played fantasy English Premier League in a few years, let alone Yahoo. Omnishambles. :-b

Sean Doolittle was placed on the DL by the A's, but Yahoo! categorizes him as "Not Active", so I can't put him on my DL. What's the deal?

This is how the interface used to look. This screen is actually of results from a previous day, but this same sort of compressed format was also used for setting the day's lineup.

Image

Now, Yahoo has added white space... result: I can no longer see all the batter, or the pitcher, data at a glance. I have to scroll up and down. I have to think harder. I have to work harder. If I wanted to check my Max Games data at the bottom, I have to scroll an additional screen, and then back up. It's aggravating and frustrating and I see no value whatsoever in adding new white space. It just degrades the user experience.

White space doesn't help me make smart managerial decisions. Data does.

Guy Smiley, I hope you guys will rethink this move. Enough with the Marissa Meyer feng shui. Get the data right first. I'm baffled as to why pointless and counterproductive changes such as these are made when Yahoo Sports still -- how many months later? -- has not restored career batter vs. pitcher data, which mysteriously disappeared in last year's redesign.

I go to ESPN for that info now. I go to ESPN for scores as well, as they offer more and better data at a glance, and I spend a lot more time interacting at ESPN and MLB dot com than I used to back in the good old days when Yahoo provided all the info I needed.


all that extra whitespace is there because you're in classic roster edit mode; change it back to 'swap mode' and it's all nice and compressed again.

In this new Football draft app can't tell who's online, and who's missing.
