This just in: Fox Sports is Garbage

Postby ironman » Sun Mar 18, 2007 8:34 pm

Our live draft started at 7:00pm, only no players were listed at all. So nobody could draft a player and when the clock ran out it would just autodraft "undefined".
:-t
This is completely inexcusable. I'll never use Fox Sports garbage service again. Stick with Yahoo folks.

I never used Fox to begin with. Yahoo is nearly error-free, stick with it always.

Yeah, all my keepers are on Yahoo. This was just a test drive league to see how Fox was. Sadly it appears the test drive burst into flames before it even got out of the driveway. :-t

For those that are curious, I can in no way shape or form endorse Fox Sports for your fantasy league.

Sticking with Yahoo. ;-D

8-o That is terrible. I hope you emailed FOX. I have heard of issues with CBS and Fox, so i think i will stick with ESPN and Yahoo.

Just shot an email off to Fox asking whats up with that.

Thankfully, they give you the option to reset the draft results and draft again. I've scheduled a new draft and hopefully can get some answers from customer support in the meantime.

Fox is horrendous for football as well.
It switched picks and locked certain owners out during a slow-live. :-t
