I understand if you disagree. If I were in the league I wouldn't like to leave it either, but honestly I don't see any way to fix it unless Yahoo steps in.

This is Yahoo's fault for wording it in a confusing way.
yeah we were also trying to do, about 60 tries in i hadn't got that yet, but i guess i'll just keep trying.
To get the same records might be doable, but to get the same matchups would be darn near impossible. If this were a 12 team league the probability that a single team would get the same two matchups for weeks one and two is only 4.76% (one divided by the number of possibilities or 1/21 in this case). The probablitily that all 12 teams get the same matchups is exponentially higher. Something like 0.03% chance or about 1 in 3333. You've tried 60 times, so you'd only have 2970 more tries to go.
To get the same records though, regardless of schedule, is much more easily accomplished. The probablility that a 2 - 0 team will still be 2 - 0 is 33% since there are only three possibilities (0-2, 1-1 or 2-0) so 1/3 is pretty good odds. For all twelve teams you've got about a 3% chance which is a 1 in 33 proposition. Since you've already tried 60 times your odds really should be improving.
