Not just any kind of whining, but a special kind of pathetic whining.

I don't know about you, but this conversation is quite boring so I'll make it short and sweet.
The entire season has gone by, lots and lots of off days and days where games at whatever positions could have been made up. It isn't Yahoo's fault that you waited this long, so I call it bad roster management. You disagree and we're not going to change each other's minds. No worries here, I don't honestly care. I read the whining, you asked about me calling it whining, so I explained. You didn't like that and here we are, with you upset/annoyed/irritated/whatever (and yes, I'm guessing, but since it bugs you enough to toss some really lame attempts at insults my way, I figure you've got an issue of some sort, be it upset/annoyed/whatever), and me wondering why I bother with people like you. So that's really all there is to say.
Oh by the way, you do realize that fantasy sports was around before Yahoo (or the internet for that matter) was ever created, right? Meaning what they allow and how the game was designed to be played are not one in the same? I always find it humerous when people say something like "It's not a loophole, Yahoo allows it and even encourages it!", because Yahoo runs their site in their own best financial interest (and rightfully so of course). That does not mean they run it in the spirit or with the ethics that fantasy sports are supposed to be played. No answer is needed, if you knew it and don't care, no biggie. If you truely never thought about it though, give it some thought. There might be hope for you after all.

This is NOT about roster management.
Plain and simple, Yahoo didn’t update its CCL in timely fashion. That materially affected the competitive flexibility of any public roto league owner of Halladay Lincecum et al. It is irrelevant whether I or any other owner managed his or her roster expertly or abysmally.
Yahoo screwed up, and if you happened to be in a public league, the effect was far more profound than Yahoo’s 10-hour delay in updating stats one day last week.
That was the point. Yet you addressed it only peripherally, and in your twisted reasoning suggested that I and by extension any roto manager affected by Yahoo’s screw-up was to blame.
“Lord of Darkness” ( LOL) indeed.
More like “Bulb of Dimness.”

in the end, the fact is yahoo screwed up. they were supposed to review and update the can't cut list accordingly. this is something they stated they would do as seen in the official rules. i don't really get why you constantly take shots at the guy and incite him by calling him a whiner. if you have no sympathy, fine, but i don't think you should be rubbing it in by telling him it's his fault for being a bad manager and keep repeating that he whines (not just once, but constantly doing so); i don't think you know enough to make such assumptions. some of you guys can defend yahoo all you want but the fact is they screwed up on many accounts. not just being lazy with the CCL but also with stat updates and live stat tracker (in the final days no less). as much as i love playing on yahoo, if there are flaws, i'll point them out as i see them. and these issues have nothing to do with the end user, who should not share the blame.
