    Yahoo Fantasy Rules Changes Needed/Playoff Changes as well

    Its funny that in the first half, all you talk about is realism, and that in real life coaches wouldn't be able to submit a roster that has missing players so fantasy owners shouldn't be able to do it either. Then in the second half you go the opposite approach and say that playoffs are ridiculous and a #4 team shouldn't be able to beat a #1 team, and yet playoffs are a fact of life in most sports and this happens all of the time in real life. I think you need to go back to the drawing board and decide whether or not you want realism or a bunch of stupid rules because your 8-1 team wasnt good enough to win.

    First off, if you can't beat a team that is playing one guy short, then you don't deserve to win anyways. So a forfit shouldn't make a difference. And second of all, if you don't like playoffs, then set up your league so it doesn't have them. I've played in league where it goes to week 16 and the team with the best record or most points wins it all. But don't cry about the system at the end of the year because you lost. Set it up before the season begins so it's fair for everyone.

    • totally agree. I am the commish in my league and at draft day I let everyone know that if any game is "thrown" like stated above or mgr's did not set their roster than, I as the commish will lock their team give them a lost or I set their roster for them. My league is a money league so things have to be spelled out like that.
      Playoff are as follows... I have 3 div with 4 teams ea. Div winners advance regardless of record. and then the remaining five teams advance by record then points.... Set up prior to start of season...
