Fantasy First? - postponed games

9 posts in this topic

So hurricane Ike has postponed the game between Houston and Baltimore until the Raven's bye week.

Fantasy Football results for this week are all out of whack. Some scores won't be known for many weeks. What if McGahee or Andre Johnson gets injured prior to then? I doubt we can change our lineup for week 2 eight weeks down the road.

I'm currently losing by 8 points but could come back to win in several weeks. I'm sure this is a first. Any league administrators put in special cases for this game?

I told my league that if they start any Balt/Houston players this week and the game isn't played by Monday night, they will receive zero points for those players. End of story.

If your league is going to retroactively adjust week #2 scores in eight weeks, that is absurd IMO.

i thought it was just considered a bye week for those teams. they'll rearrange the schedules and lose their regular bye week later in the year.

That's correct, but there are fantasy leagues that couldn't adjust on that short of notice, as the word came out late Saturday night about the schedule change.

The one thing to keep an eye on is that you may have drafted certain players so that their bye weeks don't overlap such as two QB's, PK's, or Def, and now they might due to the schedule change.

Looks like I'm out of luck. There won't be any retroactive scoring in 8 weeks. I'll chalk it up as my own fault, but there was no communication of this condition in either of the league's I play in. Would have been nice, but I'll put this on me. Cost me a game - bummer.

i am my leagues commissioner and i emailed everyone as soon as i found out. The info was out there, all I needed to do was read the yahoo fantasy football homepage and i got the info i needed.

I played against a guy who had Andre Johnson and didn't change his roster...I still lost.

I am also my leagues commish and I e-mailed everyone Saturday posted a bulletin on the web page and called the few people that had the very few players that it involved.....wasn't an issue in my league and it took me 10 minutes to send out 3 different ways of informing the league.........the dumb thing was I played against a guy that was starting A. Johnson and I called him and told him and he put in A. Gonzalez and beat me....but what do you do fair is fair.....

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
