Colsten listed as TE.....SUCKS! (Yahoo)

Postby loganberries » Sun Oct 29, 2006 8:26 pm

Our league, we start 1 Qb, 3 WR, 2 RB's, 1 TE, 1 K, 1D

Guy who has Colsten starts him as a TE. He also has 3 stud wideouts, so he gets 4 WR each week. Needless to say, he is killing people in our league each week because he doesn't start a legit TE. Yahoo still allows this. Anyone else facing this? Our commish doesn't have the sack to tell this guy he can't use him as a TE.....because we all have to start a TE. Hell, Colsten isn't even listed as a TE on the Saints depth chart!!!

There have been about a dozen of these threads since the beginning of the season discussing this exact topic.

Pretty much nothing you can do about it. Yahoo won't change eligibility once the season starts.

Yeah, I dont know what Yahoos problem is. They should of fixed this problem when all the other sites fixed it but I dont know why they didnt. He is not a TE, he is the Saints #2 WR. Maybe if you could get people to flood Yahoo with tons of complaints they might change it, LIKE ALL THE OTHER SITES!

my suggestion is that you become faster at grabbing a guy like colston next time. if you owned him, im sure you wouldnt be complaining about it.

well said. I doubt Colston was drafted in your league.

That being said, like it has been mentioned here, keep pinging Yahoo about this. As long as you're not using their free league, you should be able to contact customer support over and over and over again.

If you had the highest waiver pick after week 1, you got him. Otherwise you didn't. No reason to keep dwelling on it, though. Yahoo has been flooded with complaints since week 1 and isn't going to change it.

If they haven't fixed it by now, they're not going to.

But I still don't see how Colston could possibly be the sole reason why so many people are losing. :-?

This is kind of like Marcus Vick. He's a WR\QB in Yahoo leagues.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Yep, and at ANY hint that Marcus Vick will start at QB for the Dolphins, no one better be between me and a computer. And I'll sit and laugh at anyone who complains.
