Unfortunately, you gotta stick to the rules...

Drummond from Detroit? Rod Smith? Dante Hall? 2 out of three are probably taken, but any one of those could help you out.

Find a team with a good defense that will force a lot of punts, then pick up their return man. If a team punts say 8 times a game all it takes is breaking one or two medium sized reutrns and you're on your way to a 10 point bonus.

Better than complaining use the rule to your advantage and beat everyone else with it!

If the scoring was set like that before the draft, then it was your responsibility to know so, and to have drafted accordingly.

If it was changed after you drafted, then you can complain.

If you don't know the rules of the game you're playing don't expect to win.

I think you have every right to complain (not to change it though because you knew about it before the draft) Kick return yards shouldn't help a fantasy team

That's your opinion. Not everyone agrees, and that is one of the things that makes this game so much fun - it's highly customizable.

I find the 10-pt bonus mentioned in the original complaint to be a little crazy because it's a big bonus %-wise for an arbitrary goal, but the Return Yardage counting for points is just an added facet of the game that makes drafting and Waiver wire maneuvers that much more interesting.

Yeah - it would have been a real shame if the guy had won after he so skillfully built his team to take advantage of the scoring system like that. I mean really - what kind of jerk actually reads the scoring settings and then sets out to exploit them by drafting players that will score a lot of points?? It's a good thing he lost in the championships - I mean can you imagine the gall to actually go out and pick up players just because they are going to thrive in the current scoring system?!?!ImageImage

What is the fantasy football world coming to?!?! Next thing you know people might actually start doing research before their drafts, comparing strength-of-schedules, and doing draft-position-vs-projected-points comparisons!!! ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Is your FFBC name drinklime because the grapes were too sour or something?

I agree with everyone else that said you should've complained about it before your draft. Complaining now about the rules that you agreed to is just being a poor sport.
