look, i dont think that the person with Colston would be fine with a manipulation of the rules. Whats done is done and leave it at that. I fyou had Colston, you'd be defending this loophole, but you didnt pick him up.

For a second time ... I do own Colston in a league where he had WR/TE, and I could have played him as a TE. I chose to have the commish classify him properly as a WR. Because it is a loophole and it should be closed.

Sounds to me like you need to call the Wambulance. It's not really a loophole if Yahoo has him placed as a TE. That's just strategy.

You're making a fool of yourself, and the most disturbing thing about it is that you seem to think that you're not the one with the problem.

The issue that you bring up, is simple: if Yahoo allows a player dual eligibility, he can play both positions. If the guy sucked, you'd have no problem with it. The guy doesn't suck, so now you have a problem.

There are 2 solutions: 1). contact Yahoo and get them to enforce WR eligibility exclusively (which I think you know that you won't be able to do) or 2). deal with it.

You don't have any other options. It's not your right to tell other managers how they can line up their players.

And no one believes that you would refrain from using him as a TE if you had the option.

Im not the one with the problem ... I wasnt fired up(threatneing to quit the league, etc) about the status of Colston in my league when I first asked the question, I just wanted to know how others using yahoo had handled it, if their commish had made a ruling outside of Yahoo, etc ... When I did get aggravated is when people had to make smart ass comments that didnt help at all.

And as to your comments, Ill have to give you credit, at least they are semi constructive...

but a) just because yahoo allows it does not prevent indivdual leagues from making rules to limit his eligibility ... and this was kind of the point of the question, to see if others had done this and exactly what they may have done.

b) there are many other solutions just 1 of which I mentioned previously, another would be a league vote.

c) I do have Colston in multiple leagues, and in the one league he had dual eligibility and I did/do use him as a WR ... whether you believe me or not matters very little ... some people don't have to win at all costs.

My lord dude, just give it up. If Colston's available at TE, so be it. It's not like it's LaDainian Tomlinson eligibile at TE.

If he was people would be arguing for it just the same ... because almighty Yahoo says so.

I really didnt care about it this much, Im mostly still posting because Im just sitting here watching TV anyway; and the moron "I own Colston and play him as a TE, pat me on the back for my fantasic strategy and foresight" people are coming out of the woodwork

so you think thats its fair that people that have been relying on him as a TE, possibly passed up other TEs on the WW because they had colston, or even dropped other TEs on their roster for him should be punished now by declaring him ineligible? thats just wrong on a number of levels. i am in 7 yahoo leagues and was only smart enough to get him in one of them....i give props to the 6 guys in my other leagues who were faster than me....not wish for a rule change because he is dominating the position now.
