    • Survival League dilemma

      Two strikes and you're out.
      Let say NE and ATL goes to the SuperBowl.
      Player 1 and Player 2 have already previousely pick NE and ATL, so both can't make anymore picks.
      Player 1 has no strike.
      Player 2 has one strike.
      Does the game end up in a tie cause both Player can't make anymore pick?

      • There is no way for the commissioner to contact members in the league that has hidden their emails.

        Allow commissioner to send email to all members like in Fantasy football. Or show the email ONLY to the commissioner.

        • Explain the rules up front. Nowhere does it state that it resets for playoffs

          How about NO resetting for the playoffs. The name of the game is survival so you should try and survive with what you have left. At the very least let it be an option at the start of the season so you don't look like an idiot as a commissioner when you find out now!

          • Loser Survival League

            LOSER SURVIVAL LEAGUE!!!
            Same as the normal Survival League but instead of picking winners to stay in it you pick the losers.

            I commish a group of 26 people in the survival league and everyone loves it but if you lose early on a fluke game it sucks and adding another survival league with losers instead of winners will be amazing so we can have 2 survior leagues and 2 chances to go along with our pickem and fantasy league

            • Survivor Tie Break Idea: After specified week (ie. week 14, week 15, week 16, or week 17), contestants have to enter in two picks.

              In our current league, we have 63 contestants and each team is allowed two strikes. The current set up only requires each team to select 1 NFL team per week. In order to minimize the number of contestants remaining at the end of week 17 (our league doesn't go into playoffs), an idea was thrown around that starting on week 14, all contestants have to choose two teams per week moving forward. This would be an awesome feature that the commissioner could pick in the beginning of the season.

              Also, in terms of deciding a winner at the end of…

                  • Eliminate Thursday game from Survivor

                    If there isn't going to be an option to change the deadline for picks to Sunday, then maybe add an option to eliminate the Thursday game from your league. Make it something that can be toggled so at least we can choose.

                    Honestly, Thursday games suck anyway so I'll bet they're rarely picked.

                      Commish is not able to edit deadline date from Thursday to Sunday am for picks. This is not consistent with other leagues. Take for example the Gronk news over the weekend. Key player who is out could affect outcome of a game. Please help.

                      • App?

                        Why is there not an app for this? With the strict deadline it would be so much easier for players to make a last minute pick from an app.

                          The Commissioner in an NFL Survivor League should be able to allow players who forgot to make their pick by the deadline, to make a late pick in game that hasn't started yet. He should also have the ability to add a player and his pick after the league has started.

                                Why has there still been nothing done about tie breakers in survivor? We had a 16 team, single strike league, somehow all of us went out in the same week. We had to reset the league, and lost all of the previous picks. Then when it was down to 3 remaining, it happened again. So, we had to reset the league and everyone had to reference a screen shot to make sure they didn't pick a team that was previously picked as Yahoo deletes all previous picks during a reset. How hard is it to allow the commish to select…

                                • Weekly reset button for the survivor league.

                                  add a weekly reset button. This way when you get deep in the season and the last remaining 4 teams all go out in the same week, you can carry just those 4 teams and all data over to the following week to keep playing until a winner is determined. I'd call it the Highlander feature "There can be only one!"

                                      • Hey Yahoo, DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE SUGGESTIONS

                                        I just read all of the "suggestions" and am baffled that yahoo has not done anything about them. There are really only two things people are asking for and they are ridiculously easy to do.

                                        1) Add Commissioner Rights!!!! (every league experiences people's picks not registering or being changed somehow)
                                        2) Automatically send notification emails to the entire league during kickoff of the Thursday night game. If there are any pick errors that don't pertain to the Thursday game the player can notify the commissioner and then the commissioner has two days to fix it before the bulk of games…

                                        • In Survival Football, next season, can you please offer each user name multiple chances to play. Not just one play per user name.

                                          One play per username is lame. give each username the option for multiple plays! Thank you!
