Our league plays in two halves. In a change this year, you can no longer reset rosters after Week 6. Commissioners should have this power.
We play in a league, now in its 26th season. We're total points, and play in two halves -- with a redraft after Week 9. We moved from CBS four years ago to Yahoo! in large part due to the roster flexibility available here.
In past years, after Week 9, I could go in and reset the league's rosters and re-populate the teams via the offline draft tool. Not so this year. :-(
Now, according to the folks at customer support, the only way I can do this is to empty each team one player at a time, and re-add each player one at a time. This process will take me hours, when I've been able to do it in the past in less than a half hour.
Please, please, please -- change this new (lack of) functionality. Commissioners should be able to reset their leagues at any point in the season.
The issue you are running into is the last draft for the season was on 10/15.
Your only option is to do what customer care has directed you to do.
And realistically, resetting in week 9 is a bit much.
