Newbie : Yahoo Points Update?

Postby pkahle » Sun Sep 17, 2006 10:59 pm

I'm in a league in Yahoo, and the points have yet to be updated for the week. Last week they seemed to be regularly updated throughout the day. Is there a problem with our league.

No problem. Week 1 they tease you with giving you the live stattracker for free. After that you need to upgrade and pay for a PLUS league in order to get the live scoring.

Actually you don't HAVE to upgrade to the PLUS league. You can just pay $9.99 and get it individually.

Yep, it's a selling point to hook you in after week 1. They've been doing it for years, nothing they just started now.

Does anyone actually think it costs them very much more to update stats live? :-?

Seems like a big scam to me.

Since no one has answered the question, usually around 2 AM Central is when the scores update. :-D

As to Stattracker, if waiting until the next morning is too long, then yes, get Stattracker. ;-D

It's not that it costs more to update the stats live. It's that they can make a LOT of money feeding off of peoples impatience. I played on nfl.com last year where they have free live scoring. All my leagues are on yahoo this year and I'm not paying for stattracker just because I think it's BS that they charge you for that. It's not a lot of money but for me it's just the principle. I can wait until the middle of the night or Monday morning to see my scores. So it's not really a scam, it's like most other things in the world...it's all about the money.
