    Commish Advice

    What do you think about Commisioners changing the lineup requested by the person's team for example they can't get to their computer in time? Should I just do a 100% hands off or be lenient? Also do you guys think I should go ppr or head to head.

    • there's nothing wrong with assisting someone with their lineup. i had a case of a manager who had surgerry and couldn't do so for a couple of weeks. that's one example of why the commissioner has the tools to change a lineup. nothing wrong or unfair about it...something Yahoo intended for commissioners to be able to do.

      go points...instead of head to head. H2H depends on a lot of luck to win...poiints doesn't. think about it: one player could lose a game 150 to 149....and another player could win with a score of 100 to 99. the first guy's team has outscore the second guy's by 49 big points...but all he gets is a loss...and the guy with the much lower score gets a win. it's obvious that H2H championships ae won mostly due to luck. i've played both....and no way i'd go back to H2H.

      • I totally disagree with points instead of head-to-head. Head to head keeps everybody in into the games. It almost always evens out in the end anyway. If a guy is down in his individual game by a few point and is 40 down to the "top" scorer, he loses interest. We all chipped in 50 bucks in a ten man league and awarded $10 each week for the highest total weekly score. At the end of the the year the 1st place team gets $200, 2nd $80, and 3rd $60.This worked out really well. The one with the most point almost always wins the league. Do away with the playoffs though and go all 17 weeks. It makes no sense that someone with an 11-2 record can lose to an 8-5 in the first round. We have been doing the above for 10 years and freaking love the system. PPR works well. Here is how we score:

        Fractional Points: Yes

    • .... yes

    • Unless there is a blatant error, like dropping Foster or Brady, don't change a thing. Those that put in the time and make changes in time deserve to win. With the Yahoo phone app there is no reason to ever miss a deadline.
