Programmable Waiver Period End Time

With the Yahoo FFL current restrictions, the waiver period ends on Tuesday at 3:00 AM EST. This means that free agency opens at this time, which is not very convenient for those who don't want to burn their waiver spot for the week, but still want first access to the free agency pool. Can you please make the waiver period end time programmable?

    Yes. This needs to happen. I know ESPN allows this flexibility. There's outrage in my league with the inability to pickup players on Sunday morning before games, when news of injuries and suspensions drops out of no where. FAAB Continuous is the fairest way to give everyone the opportunity to pickup players, but there needs to be a way to process bids again at noon or so on Sunday.

    wish they would do something I'm getting tired of trying to get players who would help my team only to find they were given to someone else

    Yeah, Love this idea. Commissioners should be able to set at what time the waiver period ends and FA begins. Right now some people in our league wake up at 4 AM to get first bids on free agents which seems unfair. Allowing to specify a time would work better for everyone.

    As well there is a problem because not all players are made free agents at 3am. If a player was involved in a claim, but not ultimately claimed they are not made available until waivers are processed at random time later in the morning. All players should be released simultaneously and at the time the league chooses.

    Being able to set a customized time for when waivers process in a league would be ideal for FAAB (Continuous).

    Example: Being able to set the waivers process time to 9am PST Instead of the set unchangeable standard of midnight PST.
