FYI I just went to the OTHER section on top line. When you go to head to head schedule for the entire season Ilovewins and me (Showdough) are not included for all 15 weeks.
So I'll just drop my entire team if you all agree to that.

I sincerely appreciate DC and FL's efforts. BUT - It's all kinda fucked. The D scoring is horrible, the teams are some in some out, but taking players. All it's strange if 2 teams drop a ton of good players.

Honestly, Showdough if you want my team you're more than welcome (I'll give you the name and password. I'm in 4 other leagues so no sweat to me.

I would like to see if we can keep the league intact at 12 teams - perhaps there's a fix somewhere in the settings that FL can make as Commish or we can contact Fantrax tech line to correct?

My team I drafted is real solid, I won't drop any players until you guys decide on what to do.The problem is Flyin Late is on his honeymoon still and only he can change the teams.

Under the Other tab, All Options, one of the options is to email fantrax. I think all the commish needs to do is email them and have them fix the system to include all 12 teams in the schedule. The league is set up for 12 teams, so it's a problem with the system.

I wouldn't drop any players, even if the two teams drop out. Better to just leave them in limbo. However, if you do decide to drop them, let me know first. I'm in desparate need of a good running back...

The problem is the commish is on his honeymoon. We have a game today. I'll hold on to my players. I don't want to screw up the rest of the league. But if you look at my team it's a REAL good one. Oh well.

Id wait for FL i am sure there is something that can be worked out. If worse comes to worse I would put my $50 entry into showdoughs lineup you can transfer players to me and ill give you the username and password to control it for the season. as i stated initially dont really care if i am in our out but am in and paid so whatever you guys wanna do.

I strongly feel either the whole league gets reset or ILovewins and I drop out and you guys pick up our players. With a game last night week 2 is for crap now also.

Your feelings on this..SD

Starting the league over again isn't fair to those of us who have already won their first game.

As far as the scheduling goes, to me it would make the most sense if you guys were just matched against each other for the first week (or two). Not sure if FL will have the option to adjust the remaining schedule, but we'll see.

If we have to make it a 10-team league and have ShowDough and ILW drop out, then i think their players should remain off-limits for the duration of the season. We shouldn't have a mad scramble for star players where they teams who are fortunate enough to have waiver priority get to add guys like Calvin Johnson, Adrian Peterson, Matt Ryan, etc. It would greatly upset the balance of the league.

Btw, ShowDough still hasn't even paid yet (although he certainly wouldn't be doing it now), so technically, he isn't in the league yet anyway.

Hopefully FlyinLate will return soon, and we can get this mess straightened out.

I haven't paid (PAYPAL banned my email or account, apparently), but I'm in for whatever. I'm going to try to make a new account. As for the league, we need to get it straight soon, but in the future it'll go better I'm sure.

Unless there are any objections (or someone has already done so), I'll email the administrator and see what can be done. I'm sure responses will be sent back to the commish of league by default so I'll include my email address in my narrative. I'm unsure on FL's return, and don't want to step on anyones toes, so please feel free to respond and I'll act accordingly.

Cheers, Sean

From support@fantrax.com

Matchups were never regenerated after those teams joined. We can
regenerate those for you, but it will most definitely change who played
who week 1 and the outcome of those matchups.

Thanks,
Joe
The Fantrax Team

Any thoughts?

I have to go fill in as coach for my nephews u-8 soccer game, so I'll just add that I'm okay with regenerating from week one which may adjust my win to a loss.

It will keep the league at 12, we keep our same players and we still have the whole season ahead of us . . .

As I stated in the league chat, I apologize for all of these errors. I had always used ESPN or Yahoo for fantasy leagues, and they take care of all of these things for you. I literally had no idea that matchups would need to be regenerated. Frankly, I set my line up before the Cowboys game last week and just got back from the honeymoon to find all of this disarray. Whatever the group prefers is fine by me, and again, I truly am sorry. The timing had me completely out of the loop. If you want I can try to regen for tomorrow to see if they will allow it (not sure how/if this affects the Thurs game).

I just checked in at Fantrax, Ilovewins and I are still not in live scoring. Let's just let the 10 of you guys have fun. It won't be fair to change now that week two is in less than 3 hours.SD

In a 12 man league, you typically would play 1-2 teams twice regardless. You and ILoveWins will have gone head-to-head for weeks 1 and 2. I will manually score if needed. After monday night, I will shuffle the matchups and we can proceed. I can contact FanTrax to adjust your records accordingly. Does this work for everyone?

Actually, I'm wondering if we regen before kick-off today if that won't just bring those two back into the mix for this weeks games? It should also count their last weeks scores and results, right?
