Stop obnoxious video ads with sound!
An ad for Dell computers randomly starts playing loud music. It's one thing to have ads with video that are a little distracting, but to have one of the open tabs in my browser randomly explode with loud jingle music is completely unacceptable. Also, on that one ad that keeps showing up, there are pause and volume symbols on the video that do not work and are just a trick to get us to click on the ad. This is in a pro league that we're paying for. This sort of ad shouldn't be on any of the fantasy football pages. It's a really screwed up thing to do.

I understand ads are necessary, but to make someone watch an unskippable 30-second ad just to see 30-45 seconds of content is totally unethical, unfair, greedy, and downright mean to your users.
Maybe it's a glitch, but EVERY AD I SEE IS 30-SECOND MANDATORY!
Not cool. It would be nice if you mixed up the ad-buy as well. Not only is it a 30-second commercial, but it's one I've had to see in its entirety several times already.
It's not even good media buying, your frequency rate is having a negative effect on the brand in addition to the poor UX.
Please be better.

Takes up space, better used for viewing the draft results.

i will not use ANY SITE that auto plays videos! I have NO DESIRE for sound to start blaring out of my computer just because I popped onto the fantasy site.
Honestly, it's like you WANT PEOPLE TO GET CAUGHT AT WORK!!
The auto-play feature with sound has been banned by most online entities due to bad user feedback. Don't get worse, get better!
The new Yahoo of last week has caused multiple delays for ad reading and frozen screens.
