Yahoo requirments are thee worst !!

Postby jbones733 » Fri May 07, 2004 5:55 pm

you can have a guy eligible at a position who doesent play there all year , but a guy has to play 15 games at a new position before eligible, it should be AT LEAST 10 if not less. even guys who you know are gonna be there all year have to wait, retarted (END YAHOO RANT)

Well the part about a player being eligible in a position we all know he is no longer going to play is true in every league I have participated in. I don't have a problem with that but I do agree with you that the 15 game requirement is a bit stiff.

I like Yahoo's requirements. If they didn't do it this way, there would be chaos. I see nothing wrong with it.

Heh I don't think lowering the eligibility requirements to ten would cause chaos but to each his own. :-D

Not just lowering them. But he's saying if a guy doesn't play a position, he shouldn't qualify there. If they took away a player's eligibility mid-season, or even in the off-season after he played there all season, it would cause chaos for keeper leagues. Maybe 10 games would be better, but I like 15. Too many players qualifying for every position screws everything up. I like one main position per player.

I like Yahoo's requirements, although i like the idea of making it 10 instead of the 15 that it is now.

But i would have to say that eligibility is the least of Yahoo's problems.

It is at least 10. It's 15.

Got it, misread what you were saying. I agree.
