Anything to do, or just walk away?

Postby FatFoot » Sun Oct 08, 2006 3:01 pm

Bogus free NFL league... I go on to set my roster, and the software locks on me, and I couldn't even field a full team. While I'm sitting there cursing the network, I notice the scoring, at about a quarter to 1 PM EST, and 2 teams have 20 points already. No games have started.

Just walk away from the league entirely, or what would you do? I think there are about 4 or 5 people playing for real one ghost, 2 cheaters and a couple of screwups.

No point in beating your head against a wall. Walk.

The 20 points would be for team defences in games that are just starting/about to start.

Maestro is right. It was showing the team D score. Sometimes they do it before the game.

Sometimes it does, sometimes it waits for the game to actually start. The live scoring is screwed up sometimes.

I highly doubt someone would add 20 points to their score if they could. Every owner has access to exactly how many yards, td's, fumbles, etc. that a player gets each week which would make it impossible to change a player's score.

No. The game has to be close to start time.

If it's 1:00 or slightly before, the defenses playing at that time will go to 20.
