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.


Hahaha, Ive gotta save that jpg. There are so many times I wish I had something like that. Thanks.

I have never experienced a problem like this with yahoo before so I was expecting them to fix it like every other site did. Some sites took longer then others so if the rule was changed now at least he got to use him for some games. This is also why I was suggesting it happen at the bye week since he would have to make TE arrangements anyway.

I serioulsy doubt most people dropped the likes of Gates, Heap, etc ... in order to pick up Colston. I also do not believe fixing something that only one site has chose not to fix is punishing the owner. It sucks for him but so do injuries. I own Colston in one league and do not use him as a TE, so I am not asking people to do something I would be unwilling to do.

you asked for everyone's opinion on the matter and when it wasnt what you wanted to hear you started to cry, just get over it....its always next year....but its nothing to cry and complain about the entire year, its just the TE position, if you honestly think that one position is enough to make your entire team lose then you need to regroup as a manager and think about how your playing fantasy....

but to sit here and be a baby about this subject for this long and to this extreme says you need some growing up to do...if your 13 i understand, if your 30 get a grip on life

Everyone had an opportunity to get him, whether throught the draft or as a free agent. Since everyone had the same opportunity, no one is getting an advantage.

Those that missed out, myself included, will just have to accept it. We had a shot at him, and I guarantee anyone who has him as a TE is in favor of keeping it that way.

Am I pissed at the owner who has Colston?? Yeah. But only because I didn't get him first. You gotta tip the cap and move on.

What's a "Search Feature"? :-b

Do I think Colston should be TE eligible? Nope.

Is he in Yahoo? Yep.

If I played on Yahoo would I play him in the TE slot? H**l Yes.

Do people that ask for others' opinions and then complain when they don't get the answer they wanted need to get a grip? It'd be nice, but I'm not holding my breath.

I didnt ask the question in order to help me form an opinion(If you read my question my opinion is obvious), I didnt ask for other peoples opinions on my stance ... If you read the original question I asked what others had done in their league to address the situation. If people had not dealt with this situation then they did not even need to respond, but they felt it was there duty to be smart asses.

Uh I haven't read this entire thread, but people need to stop complaining about Colston's TE eligibility. Think of it this way. Alfonso Soriano, perhaps the best fantasy baseball player this past season, played OF for the entire year. OF is a pretty loaded position in fantasy baseball. However, he had 2b eligibility ALL YEAR. 2b is arguably the weakest position (after catcher) in fantasy baseball. Thus, Soriano's value was that much more, even though he didn't play 2b. Anyways - suck it up, everyone had the opportunity to get him, and if you were fortunate enough, good for you. If not, it kinda sucks, but it happens all the time.

He's right. Plus I doubt people who have him are whining. Suck it up and you should be hitting yourself for not picking him up earlier.
