Did I see somewhere that league commissioners will have the ability to pause a live draft? If so, is this also true for the new auction leagues?
This would be a huge benefit in case somebody gets booted by the server mid-draft.

thanks again

Genie,

Has there been any progress on the PPD locked game issue? In daily leagues it would be great to have the ability to make a substitution after the scheduled start time of the postponed game.


Thanks for all you do.

I've explained here countless times that there are good and necessary reasons why this is the way it is. It isn't a bug.

EDIT: I wrote this up hopefully for a final time in the FAQ forum here:

Genie,

Is it possible to break down the "Net Stolen Bases" and "Net Saves" categories and allow commissioners the ability to assign +/- values for saves and blown saves/stolen bases and caught stealing? The way it's set up now I believe it's +1 for a save/SB, -1 for a blown save/CS, but I've got a few league members who would like blown saves and CS to be -2 or even -3. I don't think you can customize it that to extent currently.

Yeah, no way to do that in a h2h or roto league. What you're describing starts to tiptoe towards points based scoring, where you could apply arbitrary points to steals and caught stealing independently. But a points league is a very different beast altogether. All the same, yeah... we couldn't really offer a million categories which were SB-CS, 2*SB-CS, SB-2*CS, 3*SB-CS, etc. etc.

Thanks, that's very clear. I must have missed your explanations in the past.
