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.
A fun idea. And, with the turmoil and frustrations created by this year's re-design of Fantasy Football, Yahoo needs to have some fun ideas.
Is there a loser's bracket now?
i have a 14 team league. please allow for an option to have 6 teams in championship playoffs and 4 teams in consolation playoffs. the losers of first round of championship playoffs can then play in the consolation playoffs (play the winners of the first round of consolation). this is done in 10 team playoffs, however not for 12 or 14 team leagues. please allow this as an option. thank you
I would like an option to eliminate the consolation ladder - NO LOSERS ALLOWED!
A bracket for Losers? Nice
Agree with comment from Scott! Not sure what the initial posts intent is, but I understand Scott and agree that everyone should be able to participate all the way thru the season.
I agree this seems like an easy fix. I have a 14 team league, top 6 make the playoffs. But the consolation bracket only takes 6 teams as well, meaning there's two teams that don't even make the consolation playoffs. I should be able to do and 8-team consolation bracket. Same number of weeks, keeps everyone involved longer.
From what I can tell there is no option to add a loser's bracket to an existing league. It should be a simple fix and an easy option for commissioner to adjust every year.
