I will never play in a Yahoo league again. I paid to have that piece of crap stat tracker, and it doesn't even work right half the time.

Last week, I had a furious comeback with the NY Giants defense and Shockey against the first place team and came out in the end with a 2 point win... or so I thought. Tuesday morning, I woke up with a 5-2 record because of the win and was sitting in second place. Thursday, I went to set my roster for the week and at some point, it updated, and I was sitting at 4-3 and had a 1 point loss. What a killer.

Yesterday, I went to bed at 2:00 A.M. and was sitting with a tie going into tonights game, I have the Pats D, he has Longwell. I woke up today, and I'm down by 8 because it had just barely updated Seattles D for the other owner.

Does anyone else have these issues? I've never used ESPN or NFL.com, but Yahoo is garbage, and their rankings suck and are outdated as well. You would think since you have to pay they would actually get it right... ugghhh.

ESPN updates stuff the next day too.

As of midnight last night, Balt D had 9pts. This morning, 17pts.

It made my 5pt squeaker into a 13pt solid win.

So....because Yahoo changed the stats to make it accurate....you're mad at them for you losing? If you lost, you lost, every single site will have things like this where they update the next day....it's not just Yahoo. You're just gonna have to get over it i think....

Yeah, you're acting a little wacky here dude. Just because they wanted to be accurate, you hate them??? You should be praising their efforts to get everything right. It isn't their fault you lost.

You're all right, losing is losing, but I would think if you have to pay to use the stat tracker for "up to the minute" stats, it would work "up to the minute" and not two days after the game is over.

Absolutely. For $0.63 a week, you should have a team of experts making real time corrections to mistakes made by the NFL. I would write Yahoo and demand that $0.63 back right away. Or see if you can find some change in your couch. How much do pacifiers cost?

You can get a pack of 5 for $1 at my local dollar store. ;-D

I'd have to agree that you're overreacting to what the NFL commonly does the day after games, correcting stats. Happens all the time and probably will happen a lot more in the future. So you're going to be screwed the same way no matter what service you switch to.

Looks like the Pats D is going to win it for you anyway so suck it up...

Yahoo sucks caulk. I like nfl.com so much better. #1 the up to the minute score tracker costs nothing. #2 you dont have to total up everyones points or wait until monday morning to see any points. #3 I had the Saints defense when Bush ran the punt back for a TD. Since Yahoo doesnt include special teams in their defense scoring, I lost by 4 points that week.

Including special teams in your scoring is part of your individual league settings.....not Yahoo's fault....
