Yahoo League Information

Postby rlee » Thu Jul 29, 2004 10:17 pm

I am the commissioner of a private Yahoo League and am facing an unusual situation. We have a team manager that has changed the team name to one that is offensive. I have searched through the Commissioner Tools and see do mechanism to change the name back.

Are there any Yahoo league commissioners out there that may be able to help me? Thanks.

I'm a Yahoo Commish too and I dont think you can change other team names. I'm looking through some of the options and dont see anything relevant. Have you had any direct communication with the owner to see if he/she would change it?

According to Yahoo rules you are not allowed to have offensive names. If the name fits their definition of offensive I imagine you can email them and they will take care of it.

I never had to do that but I would assume that it would depend on whether they checked to allow the commish to edit their team.

Editing a team only allows you to edit their daily lineup. There is nothing that let's you change their name. I have e-mailed Yahoo and hopefully they'll remedy it.

Thanks for the input. You guys always come through ;-D

I'm a little late, but emailing Yahoo was the right move. If it's offensive, they will change it. ;-D

I'm not sure if they will do anything if its in a private league, however, speaking from experience, if they do change the team name it will be fearsome name "Team A"
