My first rule of FF. I always set my lineup for the next week Tuesday morning. If I get hit by a bus during the week, I don't want my team to suffer.
Seriously though, everyone has known about the Thursday night games and you should have made some sort of arrangement to take care of this situation before hand. tough break is all I can say.
However, semi-aside question, how are leagues dealing with the Thursday night games? I know the lineup setting portion can't be changed, but what about WW moves?
I currently run the WW so they are locked once the first games of the week are played. The reason is I don't like to have teams rewarded (myself included) for sitting at a ocmputer all Sunday waiting for the big injury to occur. Then a WW runs Tuesday into Wednesday morning. Wednesday morning at 9, the WW becomes first come first served until the next week's games start.
This has worked great in all the years I have played, but with the Thursday night games, the WW is locked from Thursday night to Wednesday morning and there's only one first come first served day.
I was thinking of possible opening up the WW next year on Friday at 9 am until the next games start to allow teams to pick up players (except ones who played Thursday night). However, I'm not sure about the coding of this idea yet and really not sure if it would be beneficial or cause problems that I may not be seeing right now. Thoughts?
