I'm not trying to offend anyone, just using a voice of reason.
If team owners are going to blame YaHoo for misinformation, then I will bet those same teams are out of starts for David Ragan, or David Ruettiman, or perhaps Terry LaBonte. Of you follow NASCAR, you know that these drivers are not in the quality rides of years gone by. Yet YaHoo's statistics show them as quality picks at certain tracks. However, common sense keeps the informed from selecting them over Aric Almarola, San Hornish Jr., and Brian Vickers, right?
Blaming YaHoo for benching Sam last week is the same as filing an injunction against Hendrick Motorsports for their engine issues. "I had no idea that HMS purchased faulty valve train components, and it cost me big running Stewart..." How laughable would that statement be?
NASCAR holds the car number entry list for each race, teams decide who is in the seat and who is not, YaHoo only provides their evaluation of the entrants list. It's up to us as "fantasy" owners to determine who we start and who we bench. Information is up to us to research, not Yahoo's.
I'm not offended I was just stating the analogy was a poor one, that all. I don't give to s!@$! About the points I lost at this point. I'm on to Bristol. Just giving my point of view as you and your buddies do. Thanks for listening

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I hope you continue to voice yours out here. One thing I've learned over the years... If two people agree on everything, one of them is a complete idiot!
I know neither of us fall into that category at this point...
Baby goat, I don't think you have an accurate analogy of the situation. Just give the players that picked Hornish 0 points and everyone is happy. I have a full time job and a life! The note on the page said no points awarded if you use this driver PERIOD!

"Just give the players that picked Hornish 0 points and everyone is happy" ..... that's not true ... if you take away my 78 points I got for hornish I'm not gonna be happy.
face the facts ... the ones who picked hornish out-witted , and out-played the ones who didn't
I got my 78 points FAIR AND SQUARE .... I shouldn't be docked 78 points just because some people don't have even the most elementary understanding of NASCAR rules and regulations
I find it amusing that 100% of you whiners swear up and down that you were going to use Hornish at Michigan (even though he was starting in the back) .... if you don't know enough about NASCAR to know Hornish was in the race then I'm sure you don't know enough to know that he was the obvious pick last week
Keep whining ... it makes me laugh
Sweet Old Bob
Lisa, I have no idea what note you are referring to. Have you ever heard of an imp? Imposters always come out to these boards with phoney info to cause mayhem. Do you really believe the "Director of Fantasy racing" even gives two shakes about trivial things like those who do not read or comprehend the rules of this game?
Don't let certain folks out here con you into believing I'm ignorant. Beginning an arguement with name calling shows lack of mental aptitude. I'm sorry you got dupted, but coming across as though I did something stupid proves a point doesn't it?
Common sense my dear, common sense...
