If this is as best as they can do, then I'd much rather take it than them saying, "Eh, screw it." What it sounds like Y! needs to me is a new stat provider, cause I don't think this has been an issue with ESPN at all in the years I've been there.Maris09 wrote:Not positive about any of this, but I think if you saw a stat correction note last night (Sunday) at 8:30 pm, I think that might have still been a note from the week before. Usually stat corrections are run over night Sunday into Monday.
It's still looking though like over half of the stat corrections listed, are listed as "too late to apply for...."
My question is, if less than half of the stat errors each week are actually being fixed, why do it at all? It's taking something that's already highly arbitrary and random and just making it more arbitrary and random.
That's not an accurate comp though in my opinion. The only thing worse than an inaccurate stat and an uncorrected inaccurate stat, is to have one team's corrected and one team's not corrected. Like as if the 50% of punches being stopped are only the 50% being thrown at your opponent, and you're still getting drilled. To have a matchup be decided like that is just....
Again at that point I think you're taking fantasy bball (which is already highly arbitrary and random) and just making it more arbitrary and random.
But ya, if ESPN never has stat correction issues then it sounds like a much overdue move. Must be more to it than that though. I think I remember Genie saying most sites get their stats from the same provider. So maybe then it's Yahoo's cutoff time that's the variable? I dunno. Doesn't seem very clear what the issue is, just kind of frustrating seeing less than half of all corrections actually being implemented week after week.
