Playoffs - Customizable consolation bracket.
This feature will allow commissioners to do the following;
- Turn the consolation bracket on or off
- Change the number of teams the league has in the consolation bracket
- Customize the seeding and teams in the consolation bracket.
Currently, the consolation bracket is only available for 4 and 6 team playoff format, it is not able to be turned on and off, and does not allow for the commissioner to change the number of teams in the consolation bracket or customize the teams/seeding.
Ya, options would be great. At least an option for toilet bowl.
The playoff system needs a toilet bowl and it also needs to be more customizable. The Top 2 teams (seeds) get a bye. Then the 2 teams with the best overall record and then the 2 teams with most points scored. This is for a 12 team league with 6 playoff teams.
The toilet bowl is a great idea. I totally agree with this.
There is a feature request for the "Toilet Bowl" game which is along these lines.
it has more comments, so let's gather the momentum there.
Currently (Aug 2016) it's ranked 18th I believe.
Really need a playoff for the teams that did not make the original (winner) playoffs and in the fantasy world it is called the toilet bowl. Lets every team compete almost to the very end of the season. Fantasy diehards love the toilet bowl.

Toilet bowl is an awesome idea!!
The toilet bowl should be the 7th place winner in a 12 team league. Winner of the losers bracket. Never really did a last place game. seems interesting
last place teams deserve a chance to play yahoo!!
Ya, the toilet-bowl is cool. I have been a champ before lol. Almost won it back-to-back. But anyways, there really needs to be a toilet-bowl. The whole league would appreciate it.
Fantasy football is suppose to be fun. All 12 teams should be in some type of playoff format.

Take the bottom 6 in a 12-team league and let them have a playoff!
Playoffs for losers are always fun. They should play for $5 lol.
Yes, the teams aren't in playoffs should compete in the toilet bowl. Also, have a way to set a prize amount. Like for cash leagues. 1st $50, 2nd $20, 3rd $10, and toilet bowl champ $5! something like that.

Wow this idea has been floated around since 2013? What additional feedback do you guys need? Yahoo should have already implemented this idea years ago.

Defiantly need toilet bowl and bye week options for top seeds in private cash leagues. also need scoring setting set to only change pre-draft only!
I too would like to throw a plea to the Yahoo gods for greater options for the consolation bracket.
As inspired by the "Sacko bowl", I manually run things as an inverse system, where the losers advance to the next week, last and second-to-last place receive byes the first round, and whoever loses three weeks in a row receives the loser's trophy. It would be awesome to have this sort of option for consolation, our league doesn't use the previous year's placement to seed the next, so the default consolation bracket has no stakes.
I would support an additional feature to set up a "Toilet Bowl" scenario by a Commisioner's manual match-up. We currently keep track of the scores on the message board for a 3 week total points stand-off for the worst place trophy. It is the last two teams of a 14 team keeper league that don't make the consolation side..

ALL teams should still be allowed to play during the playoff weeks. As a commissioner I hand out a loser trophy at the end of the year. We call it the toilet bowl, but Yahoo dose not allow the last teams to play each other, and in the final league standings, yahoo does not readjust the final spots at the bottom of the list. So what I am asking for is to PLEASE PLEASE allow the last place teams the chance to play each other. It still makes the game fun to the very end.
I have a 10 team league with 8 teams making the playoffs. I put together a 3 game series for the two last place teams during our regular playoffs and keep track of it on the commissioners board. We hand out a trophy to the last place finisher who loses the SACCO BOWL.
I have found it motivates my players to play to the bitter end or reap the wrath of the other league members during the following seasons draft. =)
I agree with this and it would be awesome if it were implemented next season. Our league is getting serious and we're thinking of adding trophies including a last place trophy. It would be awesome if the last 2 teams fight it out during playoffs.
