Cheating in the finals?

Can't chime in on whether roster moves show up or not. As Commish, I have never taken a league there. But I do know from playing there that if you do not reload Stat Tracker right before KO, roster changes will not show up from the time you logged on......

I can vouch for the fact that a roster move will not show up, and as a commish, it is very possible to cheat in this way. That being said, what kind of low life would do that?

Roster Moves would show up - LINEUP moves, which is what the issue is here, would NOT.

Yahoo is smart enough to take care of something that obvious.


Nope, you're 100% wrong on this one. The type of change in this example does not show up. Its a big gripe that people have with Yahoo, and they are obviously not smart enough to take care of it.

Yeah, I was wrong in what I previously stated. I dropped and picked up a player for the manager I made a move for. It showed up in the transaction history. As far as the lineup change, nothing was noted in the history regarding it. The only thing I can think of that could have happened in this case (to defend the commish from cheating), is that your stat tracker was loaded before his lineup change was made and hadn't refreshed. This has happened in many instances this year (in my league) where a manager made a change to his roster for the 3:15 games and it did not show until I had refreshed my stat tracker. I am not in any way trying to say the commish didn't cheat, but I like to treat every case as innocent until proven guilty. It's a shame that some people actually do cheat and it really takes the fun and integrity out of the game.
