Allow Commissioner Changes to Pro Football Pick'em Leagues Picks Retroactively
As the commissioner of a league I should be able to change picks after the deadline for people that send me their picks because they are having computer problems.
For example, if a friend makes his picks and something goes wrong and the picks don't save, but he has documentation that he made the picks, I as the commissioner need to have a way to change that.
I'd be skeptical and leery of joining a ProPickEm league where the Commish has the ability to go in and change picks after a deadline. If Yahoo! ever offered the option for the Commish to have that ability I'd steer clear of it at all costs. The just goes to the integrity of the league to make those type of changes. Get your picks in prior to the deadline and check to make sure they are in and verified and leave me alone.
I totally agee with the Commish having access PRIOR to the deadline to make picks for those with computer issues, but once the deadline passes, there's a deadline for a reason.
I am a league commissioner and I do not like the idea of retroactive changes to the picks. All too often a manager will simply miss a pick by accident, or simply forget to click on "save" after making his or her picks (have done it myself) and there is just too much room for abuse.

This is highly needed for private leagues as it impacts both weekly and year end standings. Another option would be for the person who missed the deadline to default their picks, like all home teams.
This limitation in the functionality will make me look for another site to manage our private leagues in the future.
