I then ended up losing our semifinal match, and if yahoo's site wouldn't have been down I would've had time to switch to Garcia and would've won to put me in the championship.....

that is the worst way to lose ever.

bad break.
next time have your backup in the lineup when your starter is a gametime decision -- that way you are pretty much guaranteed points, even if you can't get there in time to put in your starter.

Same here. If they get the Q tag stuck on them, I slap them onto the bench and then wait and see. Four years with Yahoo has taught me that lesson.
Thank God for Football Season.

I got screwed to, when I found out Volek was starting I went to change my lineup and I was about 1 minute to late :-o I still have a chance at winning my game, it all depends on how the Dolphins do tonite.

i feel sorry for all you guys. For me though the server being down saved me. I had this gut feeling to bench farve for vick but when i went to it wouldnt let me. It ended up saving me for this week. I would of been really pissed if i lost because of that switch. I went into the playoffs as seed one and i hope to win it all now.

I've learned that leeson the hardway in years past. Thankfully I benched Bennett for D.Mason the night before this week.
