Why should they get penalized further? Heck, a good argument could be made to not take away points for interceptions or fumbles, either.

At any rate, you knew the league settings when you joined this league. These aren't wacky league settings which could arguably deserve such "BS" and "injustice" tags as you have labeled them. I know you are understandibly upset, but you kind of sound like FantasySportsMaven right now, an this whining does not reflect very positively on you. :-t

INJUSTICE!!!

Subtracting points for a missed FG is ridiculous. That's like subtracting points for an incomplete pass, or a drop by a receiver. I've never played in leagues like that before, and I'd probably wouldn't. Because if there's a rule like that in there, I'm sure there would be other unnecessary rules.

I thought it was only for <40 yds until I looked up the rules.

All that whining and you still won this week, huh? ::: rolls eyes :::

I'm not saying that this claim isn't without some merit, but the sky isn't falling, and the presentation was rude and insulting to the commissioner and everyone else in the league, IMO. :-t

I am still surprised it doesn't subtract points. It is very much the same as a INT or a fumble.

It should look greyed out, and if you go to next week's roster he's not there. He played a Thursday game and the trade happened after he got locked on Thursday.

Ah right that makes sense. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing anything wrong. Totally forgot about the Saints Falcons game probably due to how disappointing it was, fantasy wise.

Let the trading commence

Postby Wood Chipper » Sun Dec 16, 2012 7:18 pm

Since my teams season has been cut short, I am already in offseason mode so if anyone wants anyone on my team then shoot me trade offers. The only person who would be tough to rip from me is Cam Newton.
