    Ive had this happen to me too. I think its because the official scoring changes even after the game is over. For example, in a hockey game the other day ( i forget which one...Flames and somebody) originally the guy scored a goal and only one person got an assist. Then way later (after the game was over i think), they gave a second assist to someone and that person got 4 points for it. So there were a few people underneath me who jumped ahead of me when they added those 4 points. Also, keep in mind that sometimes when a game JUST finishes, they havent added points for, say, a goalie who gets 5 points for a win or whatever it is. So i just got to a point where i dont even look at the standings until they are officially closed out and the money is paid. You kinda just have to take Yahoos word for it that they are right, unless you want to spend all day long calculating the stats of each player and confirming Yahoos results. You win some, you lose some. Trust me there are days when you yourself moved up a couple spots because of a stat correction, i can assure you that.

    I agree. Its similar to plus/minus in hockey. But since you cant do plus/minus in baseball since it is more of an individual effort, they should be "punished" for getting an out. Even if its a small amount like 0.5 points or 1.0 point. In hockey, a guy that doesnt have a goal, an assist or a shot can end up with -6.0 points if he has -3 plus minus and his team loses 5-0. But in baseball if a guy goes 0-5 with 5ks and his team loses 12-0, he finishes with 0.0 points. If he has a terrible game like that and so does his team, he definitely should get negative something.

    It is possible to do this, but if they do then I bet Yahoo would separate the slates to have one slate of all National League home teams (since pitchers bat in those games) and a separate slate of American League home teams just to make it "fair". Otherwise you will have pitchers that bat and pitchers that dont bat in the same slate and then the NL pitchers would have an advantage. Although you could increase their salary to compensate and try to make it even i guess.

    From what I can remember (even though its been a couple months since the NFL season was over), i think they did the color code thing for whether a team was on offense or not, to hilight the players who could potentially score at any given time versus players on the bench. So if they can do it for the NFL they should be able to do it for the NBA whether a person is on the court or on the bench.

    I definitely agree that the multi entry contests should require that each entry have a different lineup. Consider a $0.25 per entry with a max of 4 entries versus a $1 single entry. Both have a top prize of $10, but if you hypothetically finish in the top 4 slots of your multi entry, you win a total of $22 ($10, $5, $4, $3) versus $10 for the single entry. You are betting $1 on both contests, but you win $12 more for the $0.25 per entry contest? Doesnt make sense. The larger the entry fee the larger the payout should be. Having different lineups for each entry would dramatically decrease the chances of that happening since it would be almost impossible for someone to finish in 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th places with 4 different lineups.

    I have to literally set an alarm for 2 minutes before every game start time to check my lineup just to make sure a "starting" goalie wasnt changed at the last minute. Just the other day, I think it was Gibson for Anaheim was the starting goalie according to Yahoo, ended up not starting, and was owned by 36% of the people. So 36% of the people (thankfully not including me) got a 0.0 for one of their goalie slots.
