Yes there is opposition.

Fantasy Football 101 

Rule #1 - Know your leagues rules.

Rule #2 - No changing the rules after the draft.

FFS.

Thats the only reason I am going to leave it as it is

but riddle me this...

Knowing your league rules means you knew it was different than 2021. Why would that be the case? 

 

I would bet no one drafted with that scoring in mind, and hell... doesn't impact me. It hurts high volume passing QBs more than anyone else. 300 yard games are now 12 instead of 15 :lol:

Because we changed platforms and changed a half a dozen other things just because.  That's no riddle.  You were even given commissioner powers to review and change if you saw something off before the draft. :doh:

Whatever you were willing to bet send it to Ed right now because you owe me.  My draft rankings are generated based on the league's scoring, so they are "in mind".

1. I didn't change the platform and create the league. If I had, it would have been set up with the same exact scoring as 2021 to use as a starting point because that is the sensible thing to do. Changing a bunch of things "just because" doesn't make it correct :doh:

2. I was given commissioner power much later on. Clearly I am not going to catch every inconsistency at the last minute. 

3. Anyone who chirps about "knowing your league rules" and generates their rankings based on the scoring is someone I would expect to be keenly aware that those settings didn't match last season :dunno:

 

regardless, I already agreed it's not being changed

1 - I'm so sorry.

2 - How long does it take? lol

3 - I was aware, Fantasy 101 Rule #1.  I liked any rule that devalued QBs.

3 - I was aware, Fantasy 101 Rule #1.  I liked any rule that devalued QBs.   So you knew a scoring setting was changed even though never discussed and didn't mention it because you liked it.   Class act, as usual :lol:

You were changing rules just hours before the draft and now crying about changing a rule after the draft and after games have been played.  You can jump down off your high horse.

I know you're not that obtuse. Rule changes right before the draft were, once again, fixes of incorrect settings and done by myself and Bier.  Like this incorrect setting, that I did not notice. 

I didn't enter it incorrectly but I take the blame for failing to find it. No high horse for me to jump down from but perhaps you could be less of a douche (I know it's not your style) about the suggestion it be fixed.

Never said you insulted me... but is "chirps about knowing league rules" some kind of insult versus the above quote? :rolleyes:

I was speaking directly to your response / attitude at the suggestion of fixing a stat scoring mistake. Mr "fantasy 101" is talking about high horses

Who is chirping?  You're crying about a RULE CHANGE AFTER THE DRAFT.   The asks for objections and then cries some more when he get one.

My vote:  FOK NO.  No rule changes after the draft dummy, you ever played FF before?  FFS   :doh:

Why is it its always the so called fantasy experts that don't have their chit together?

Reminds me when I played in a league with the staff at FBGs:  

 - Hey I didn't mean to draft DeAngelo Williams in the 7th round can I change that? 2 rounds later.

 - What the draft is over, there are only 15 roster spots?  I want to add more.

Guys that claim to do this for a living.

this is all VERY insulting. 

 

Who the hell is crying? If you can't handle discussion on a subject, why continue to engage? 

Since multiple people objected, didn't I already say that it would NOT be changed?

Just because I don't agree with the premise that an incorrect scoring setting can't be fixed doesn't mean you can just default to claims that I am crying about it :lol:

Calling someone a douche is an actual insult.  Doesn't bother me, just pointing out your hypocrisy.

Okay, I take it back. Clearly, you are that obtuse. 

It's not at all about having one's shit together.  Your scenario with FBG is funny, laughable and I completely agree. If I was saying "Hey I drafted Patrick Mahomes thinking passing yards were worth more! Can we change the scoring?"  Then you might have a leg to stand on. 

All I did was point out a mistake in the scoring settings from 2022 to 2023 that was not a voted on or even suggested change. A mistake you claim to have noticed, but said nothing about. I'm not sure why you feel the need to act like its crazy to even suggest fixing that and then tell someone that they are the ones on a high horse :lol:

I feel like telling someone to get off a high horse or calling them dummy is usually seen as an insult as well. Could be wrong, but I appreciate you pointing out my hypocrisy, guy.

I would be on board with that and think it makes sense

...but logically, the ESPN league should have been set up with the exact same scoring as we had on Yahoo in 2021 with any proposed changes being voted on and adjusted from there.  I don't think anyone could argue otherwise. 

I dont recall the .05

simple stuff. passing yards scoring was 1pt per 20 yards last year. When BLM made the ESPN league he put it in as 1pt per 25 yards. No one caught it (or at least said anything). I suggested we fix it to what it was last season and there were several people against that so it stays as is.

I say we fix it to match last year. was a simple mistake. And I didn't take my 1st QB till the 11th round.

Howdy Jason,

The first Sunday of the season is finally almost here! And while you've most likely(?) drafted all your teams already, it’s important to remember that the draft is just the kickoff. The real game? Navigating the season with skill and thinking two steps ahead of your competition. 

You might think you’ve prepared for the season. But ask yourself: “Am I equipped for the marathon ahead?"

Why a Footballguys Premium Subscriptionis your ultimate guide to navigate this season:

ūü﹬†Maximize Your Roster:¬†Our in-season management tools identify your team's strengths and weaknesses and your opponent's, too. You'll get start/sit advice to build your optimal lineup geared for your weekly matchup.

ūüí°Injuries and Roster Changes:¬†Injuries, suspensions, surprise breakouts ‚Äď the season is full of unexpected twists. With our real-time updates and expert analyses, you'll never be caught off guard.

ūüßź¬†Waiver Wire & Trade Tactics:¬†Your roster in November will probably look a lot different than it does now. With our expert Waiver Wire Tool, you'll get tailored advice on the best free agents to snag each week. Plus, with our Trade Analyzer, you can confidently negotiate deals that put you on the winning side of each trade.

"The best time to start was three months ago. The second best time to start is today."

That's me paraphrasing an old proverb. And like most old proverbs. it's spot-on true.

Let’s Crush This.

It's probably best just to leave it as it was entered. I think fixing it now would cause more complaints down the road. I only brought it up because my hope was to keep the league consistent from year to year (aside from proposed and voted changes), so it can remain this way moving forward.... Unfortunately I missed the way lager entered this one and didn't notice until I saw the goofy .54 score next to Herbivore's name. I don't need to be accused of crying or of possibly trying to change a rule to benefit my team in some way :lol:

I will likely only watch the Iggles destroy the Patriots and be done for the day. I guess the SNFL might be worth a gander.
