Adjustment to Wavier/Date Turnover Time
Is it possible to change the waiver/day turnover time? As set currently, the first available time to complete Free Agent pickup and still persevere your waiver priority position is 3am EST. Based upon this setup, individuals (with ample time on their hands) are rewarded for staying up or waking up at 3am EST and making a pickup. This puts some individuals (most of whom have a job) at a disadvantage as 3am EST just does not work someone who is on a typical work schedule. Not sure if this is doable, but the current setup is less than optimal.

any time is going to ***** an owner in one time zone and benefit another owner on the other side of the country. So it really doesn't matter.

they have FAAB now so everyone has to wait until the next day and there is no longer any such thing as a FA, Id rather pick up a FA put him in my line up and move on with my life . now i dont even know if i got the player until the next day. **** sucks

I had the same question about the 3am EST pickup time but I don't follow what waiver priority has to do with it. I don't understand why pickups can't just be made at anytime of the day and if the person has already played that day then the player does not become available on your roster until the following day (this is similar to how football functions, it just says the player becomes available the following week). I suggested they add a work around where you could schedule transactions to occur at a later time but the only problem with that would be what if someone else came along to acquire that player in the meantime.

This single issue caused over a decade of epic fights in my league and the bitterness continues.
Not being able to adjust the transaction time, gave an edge to west coast managers. I understand the players need to be updated for the following day and 3 am seems like the right time, but leagues should have the option of not letting players who were set in lineups be cut until 6-9 am EST, so as to not give westcoasters making midnight pickups have an advantage.
Other way around Dillon
Yeah, true for us night workers but you guys have an advantage on making roster adjustments on daily lineups that I often miss because I'm sleeping. Football is the worst for me. I have to set an alarm for 9am pacific time after a few hours sleep to make moves. Same in Baseball especially for day games. So, it swings both ways, and Yahoo already made changes to their public leagues in Basketball comcerning your complaint. As a result, Indont play those anymore because East Coast 9-5ers have too much of an advantage now

Yes! This also gives East coast managers a big advantage.
