Yeah I find it pretty entertaining. I've used the new version of stattracker since it's been out, and have paid for it happily every year. I play in multiple stat leagues, etc etc, and have zero complaints.
This guy agrees with those guys

Seriously, it's not a big deal. I remember the days when I had to click on the link for each active game and look at the box scores. Boy was that rough. I can only imagine having to scroll... makes me throw up in my mouth alittle.
To all those who say "this isn't a big deal" or "this is being blown out of proportion" or "I like the Flash StatTracker just fine":
Look, we're all cruising a forum where a post about Nate McLouth got 26 comments in under 24 hours. Nate McLouth! Fantasy Baseball is a big deal to all of us. In fact, it's probably too big a deal to almost everyone with a user name here. I like it that way.
As such, even if you don't mind Flash StatTracker's glaring deficiencies, or even if you're not in a Yahoo league, you should be able to understand why it is important
to the rest of us. Shouldn't all fantasy baseball fans be able to recognize that their fellow managers should be able to enjoy their fantasy seasons to the greatest extent possible? Or at least be able to enjoy it at the same level they've been able to enjoy it in previous seasons
By not supporting Classic StatTracker and leaving us with no choice but to use a badly flawed Flash version (but still taking our money, of course), Yahoo has essentially taken away a big part of why we enjoy playing fantasy baseball. If you haven't experienced this loss of enjoyment, then you should consider yourself lucky. I have. This is a hobby I look forward to all winter, and yesterday was a giant disappointment for me.
So am I and some other people taking this too seriously? Of course! But so are the 96 people talking about Alexei Ramirez, and the 136 people discussing Holds. That probably includes you. So you should at least be able to empathize.
