    Team and League GONE, pls help

    Ok, I spent an hour participating in a live draft. A little while later, I go back to my Fantasy Baseball home page, and my team and the whole league is just missing! Any idea what happened?

    I believe I was the final spot in a 12 team league, and it did seem to have 12 teams during the draft. So I doubt I was the "odd man out" due to an uneven number of players. Besides, yahoo wouldn't even out the teams AFTER we draft I'm sure.

    Could I have been booted? It was a custom league I joined, but how can someone boot me after I already drafted a team? What happens to my players? And why would someone boot a player immediately after the draft?

    I'm so confused, and royally pissed off. Can anyone help me figure out what happened?

    Is there a way to contact Yahoo and actually get a response?

    Thank you.

    • Same thing happened to me bru, only I was actually able to get in to our league page the day after the draft (for about 10 minutes); then started getting all these "server problem" messages, and then the league was just gone. We had some REALLY nasty *#@! talking going on during the draft, the "Commish" was a real dick, and one guy in the draft was going to notify Yahoo about it. The "commish" also threatened to delete the league, but I didn't think you could do that after you drafted, even if you were the commish. So I don't know what happened actually. It would have been nice to at least get some kind of notification. I wasted over 4 hours in that draft (auction).
      Live and learn, I hope.

      • ok, i messed up and forgot this msg, I realize im getting back to you guys late....

        billy, I got this msg:

        There was a problem
        There is not room in this league if all teams from last year return. To join, get the commissioner to increase the maximum number of teams, or remove teams that will not be returning. (Error #638)


        Ghost, couldnt join without a password. Wouldnt let me view the league using your link.

        If you guys ever have a spot open again (or still do) you can contact me through email or even better, Facebook.

        Email = sketchpadsrus@aol.com

        I'll try to keep checking this thread as well.

    • If you drafted, did you receive the final draft email? If so...the Commish probably boned you by transferring your team to another owner.

      • Ok, checked old emails and found the League ID, which is 202353.

        Went to join the league, using "password" as my password, and I got the following msg: password incorrect (duh), league not in pre-draft mode (double duh), and league does not exist

        So, would that be evidence that the commish deleted the whole league? I can't believe they allow that once people commit time and effort to drafting a team. How can you ever know before joining (a random custom league) that the commish will
        let the league play out?

        On that note, anyone mature commishes out there that create custom leagues every year? I take my teams seriously, and I'm pretty good at drafting and working the WW. I'm also active daily.... would love to be considered for a spot in a league with other intelligent and competitive players.

        Let me know and I'll give you my contact info for next year.

    • one final thing, you should have received emails after joining/drafting. check your inbox, trashed emails and spam folders.

    • or try to re-join the same league.

    • maybe commissioner deleted the league?

      you see your team/s on this page


    • Try and contact your commissioner and if you don't have his/her email, do you remember the name of the league or ID number? You can contact yahoo (they usually need 24 hours to respond)
