    Consolation Games in the playoffs?

    I also would like to find out what is the situation with Consolation games. I am in a 12 team league and right now I can only see the Championship bracket, no consolation bracket. Is it possible to set a consolation bracket for the bottom 6 teams?

    • I hear that if 8 teams get in playoffs, no consolation bracket for bottom teams (Yea, first I've heard of that, too). We use this feature to determine next year's draft - winner of consolation drafts #1, etc. Yet another reason why it looks like we'll be moving our league to ESPN next year.

    • Same question here, except I've got 12 teams and a 4 team championship and a 4 team consolation bracket...can I set up a 4 team double consolation bracket (i.e. a toilet bowl?) I've scoured the settings and commissioner tools and cant find any options to edit the settings that were put in at the league inception. I would really like to keep those 4 managers involved as the rest of the teams.

      • THESE ARE THE OPTIONS:
        WHATEVER YOU HAVE, 4 OR 8.
        YOU LOSE IN THE FIRST ROUND,YOUR IN THE CONSOLATION BRACKET.
        THE WINNER OF THAT BEING 5th PLACE.
        THIS ALL HAS TO BE SETUP BEFORE THE SEASON STARTS.

        GOOD LUCK
