Commissioner Corner Message Board
Under "commish tools" if you click "edit player waiver dates," you can see everyone who's been claimed by anyone in the league. If you're planning to claim multiple players off waivers yourself, it's cheating just by looking at it.
Example: say you're trying to pick up a breakout stud RB but you also need a bye week kicker. Normally you'd make the RB your top priority. But if you're the commish and you can see that someone else is already claiming the kicker, but no one's claiming the RB, then you can sneakily switch the priority and no one will have any way of knowing. You can cheat without editing the waiver dates at all.
Am I advocating this? No. Just pointing it out. Not sure if there's any way this problem could be fixed on Yahoo's part.
Is it normal for players to go FA early Wed morning before all the waivers have been processed? We have a guy that nabs 2 players each week 30min before the waivers are processed and keeps his #1 waiver priority. Has he found a good loophole?
This is something that needs to be fixed. The more people know it, the better.
I think Yahoo needs to make it so that every time a commissioner changes their own waiver priority, it shows up as a "commish change." No one else would be subject to the same thing being made public. Commissioners could look and see who's been claimed off waivers; everyone else could make their own waiver priority order their own business. Sort of a checks and balances system.
This doesn't prove that I cheat, #$%$. I'll post this same thing in all of the forums other than Commissioner Corner to prove it. I want everyone to know that the system is flawed.

Wake up... people already know it. You have to be pretty stupid if you're a commissioner and you didn't already know it. I was posting it more for others in the league. In the situation I mentioned, just look out for your commissioner a little more. If you're the guy who initially claimed the kicker, and you see the commissioner get both the kicker and the RB right when waivers go through, then even if he has a higher waiver order than you, you know something's up.
