My question is: Does Yahoo only let you work with a full 24 week season? Can the season be shortened to say...20 weeks or 18 weeks if desired? It just seems silly to me that winning a season could be based on Amir Johnson of the Pistons averaging a 20/10 in the last week of the year.
This argument stems from me and the commish who i am friends with. I say that a total points league is better because it rewards people who have played well throughout the season and have sustained a lead. His argument is it discourages people from trying if they are out of the race half way through the season which is partially true.
I made it to the finals, but I am stuck sitting here wondering if Amir Johnson or some garbage player from the Clippers has more value than Jose Calderon or Chauncey Billups. These arent my real situations, but typical ones at this point in the year. As you can tell, I am a little frustrated. Is a shorter season possible?
Don't know if its possible to do yourself
but I agree that they should end it 2weeks earlier
but also agree with your friend that in a total points league people out of it would stop caring.
The domino effect is far bigger than you realize . Like Trades, you'd have either bad or unfair trades or good players stuck on teams because their owners are paying attention anymore. All kinds of annoying crap that would ruin the league.
However I think Yahoo has heard this complaint alot so Im incline to think eventually its going to happen or find a different one that ends earlier.
