  1. Lock players

    I made the playoffs, but unfortunately the chances of me winning are now slim because a player who didn't make the playoffs dropped all of his quality players. Since I was low on the waiver wire, I knew I was in trouble. If you simply lock teams who don't make the playoffs this wouldn't have happened. I more than likely won't be playing anymore yahoo leagues because if this situation. It is unfair and possibly took $250 away from me.....

  3. Remove Trades from Pro Leagues

    Yahoo trade review doesn't work. A manager can admit to forfeiting and trade players for pennies on the dollar and Yahoo does nothing even when reported.

    Here are some reasons to disable trades in Pro leagues

    1-Minimize collusion. It is not difficult to join the same league with your friends to collude if you want. I have seen this happen many times.

    the following two managers are just one example

    https://profiles.sports.yahoo.com/user/2CGFK3LGHZ7GAK4IVAE6QUV4XE

    https://profiles.sports.yahoo.com/user/ZQZQPMYWHW2IGQAG3U566HK4AE

    These managers just happen to join the same pro leagues year after year. They both suck so they need to collude to give themselves a chance at winning.…

  5. You should have to have a full roster. Every position filled.

    You should have to post a full team. By lets say not carrying a catcher but carrying an extra OF you limit my player pool in the OF position. The skill should be to use the best "team" not the best pool of players.

  6. Allow only one pitching change Saturday.

    Seen this few times now where someone is behind in pitching and will add 2-3 pitchers Saturday evening and beat you. I understand you can only 6 moves, but in addition to that there should be a rule to only allow 1 pitching move Saturday. This will prevent cheating your way to victory in the pitching stats.

  7. Vetoed trades should only occur as a result of collision and unaminous votes should be required to veto trade

    I agreed to a trade with an owner yesterday where I gave up Bregman/Junis for Suarez in a $500 Yahoo Pro league where I need HR/RBI.Today I get an email from Yahoo saying my trade has been vetoed with no explanation. There is a lot of money at stake in this leagues and there should be some accountability on Yahoo's part to provide valid reasoning for vetoing a reasonable trade unless collusion is involved.

    Too often in trading these days vetoes are used for the simple reason of not wanting to see other teams potentially improving b/c your team is…

  9. Cheating Leagues

    I played in a baseball league last year where the manager cheated since day 1, changed the draft time, locked all teams, etc. I understand it may require manual intervention not available to review reported leagues, so what if instead you enable an option where a manager can vote for a manager cheating and if half of the managers vote it will automatically delete the league or if not at least not count results in the manager profiles. Best!

  10. Retroactive Lineup and Scoring changes for Private Leagues only.

    A team missed innings by .1 and realized they had a starter on bench before a pitch was thrown but the player was already locked onto the bench.
    As commissioner you should be able to edit a roster or a stat after the players are locked in if need be.
    While I understand why it would be unfair in certain circumstances (ie a public league) this is a private league where we vote on issues like this one. There should be a way to make your own stat corrections to provide a team with 1 more out to reach innings? …

  12. Create a MULTI-Commissioner Rule

    Having someone with zero respect for other people's opinions is definitely something that should be controlled by Yahoo via multiple commissioners option, otherwise, we fall under a 3rd world sports dictatorship...

  13. Maximum innings pitched per week in Head 2 Head

    Add MAXIMUM innings pitched PER WEEK in Head 2 Head leagues. This way managers can not "stream" pitchers.
    They can not add and drop pitchers every single day just to inflate their K's and W's to take those categories (ERA and WHIP may not be cared about).
    Especially with a cap on player acquisitions... if one team is capped it is unfair advantage for another team to abuse pickups only to gain stats the other team can not reciprocate.
    Teams should try to win with their team and not pickups daily.

    Also, would like to adjust settings for ONLY PLAYOFFS…

  14. Minimum Innings Pitched for Rotisserie

    Although there is a "minimum innings pitched" option available for head to head leagues, I believe there needs to be one instituted for Rotisserie as well. ESPN has already adopted this feature and I believe the season long minimum should be set at 1000 innings.

    The reason this is necessary is because someone in my league employed a strategy of only drafting batters early then going after all the elite relief pitchers without having a single starting pitcher on his team. He also has many relief pitchers on his bench that he can activate during off days and some relief…

  15. Your recent waiver wire pick-up for my 1st round pick? Get dat outta here!!! BLOCK THAT ANNOYING MANAGER

    Let me preface this by stating I have been a Yahoo fantasy player for 12 years, all 3 major sports and multiple teams each season, The one thing that really annoys me is that in almost every league there is at least one manager who insists on sending inane trade offers. I'd like to have the ability to "block" any manager from sending trade offers to me. I believe it would be simple to implement - only requiring a page similar to the Email League page.

  16. lower veto trade requirements

    The requirements to veto should take into account the number of active teams. Some douchebag just traded his best players to the team in 1st place basically sealing victory.

  17. Trade Processing after games start?

    This is more of a question. Throughout this whole year and in previous years, as the commish if a trade came through after games had started that day, I would not be permitted to let it process until the following day. EXCEPT, when I (the commissioner) made a trade after games had already been played that day, it processed immediately and I was able to use my new players in that nights games. Because of this, manager's in the league think I'm using special powers as it looks like only the commish's deal was able to be processed immediately. I…

  18. custom veto%

    I think being the commissioner, you should have the ability to set the % for which a trade can be considered vetoed. 4 players in a 10 team league can run who gets who or who can't trade. Or have the ability to see who vetoed to see if there is a pattern or issue with a team.
