Fantasy Football draft issues on Sunday, August 31

Around 4:30pm Pacific Time (7:30pm Eastern), we started receiving reports that some drafts were experiencing issues.

After looking into the issue, we discovered that drafts occurring at 5pm PT (8pm ET) and 5:15pm PT (8:15pm ET) were impacted.

Our engineers have fixed the issue, identified all drafts that were affected, and rescheduled those drafts for the 6:15pm PT (9:15pm ET) draft slot on Sunday, Aug. 31.

 Private leagues: If your commissioner has already rescheduled the draft, then please use your new time.

If you miss your 6:15pm PT (9:15pm ET) slot, you can reset the draft for another time.

We apologize for the inconvenience this caused you, and thank you for your patience.

According to Yahoo Fantasy Twitter, they were having Technical difficulties with the 8pm/5pm - 830/530 drafts and are working through them and will set up drafts scheduled at that time for later when they are back up running. 

Fortunately for my Silver Bullet Buckeyes League, was able to draft at 7p/4p. The only thing is we cannot see our team in our MY TEAMS yet. Probabl due to the glitch, but they do show in the draft results.

I'm old school, but this is reportedly the biggest recruiting weekend of the year, I'd say do whatever is necessary to sway recruits.

I am still looking for a place here in Vegas that can match Park, Plaza, Louies (Subs), Don & Sues, and my ol' buddies Two Guys Pizza , that he ran in the mid 80's. I have tried, but there is none here that can hold a candle to them. My wife just perfected Louies Subs so we stopped looking for a good sub out here. Damn I miss that!!!

I know it's only 1 preseason game, but I have the San Francisco feed here in Vegas and they just raved about him throughout the game, even when he wasn't playing. They interviewed him on the field after the game and he was grinning from ear to ear the whole time. He looked really good with the ball and also picking up pass blocking. Buy his rookie cards fellas, they are flying on ebay.

LEAGUE IS FULL!!!!

I have another league I started on Yahoo. It is a 10 team League called Silver Bullet Buckeyes League. It is a live snake draft on August 31st at 7pm EST/4pm Pacific.  This will be a fun high scoring league with a .5 point per reception & 6 pts for passing TD instead of 4. Roster is consisted of : 

QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, Flex(WR/RB/TE), Flex (WR/RB/TE), K, DEF, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN. and 1 Injured Reserve spot.

There will be 2 divisions of 5 teams.  6 teams will make the playoffs instead of 4 teams. Playoffs will start on Week 14 and finish on week 16, since A lot of playoff bound NFL teams rest starters that last week.

Only want active managers who will set their lineups & play each week until the end. Pop me an email at [email protected] if you are interested for an invite, or click just this link to join: https://yho.com/nfl?l=415733&k=8483844a042ea3bb

Rosenbuck, just a reminder that our draft for the Silver Bullet Buckeyes league is Aug.31st at 7pm est/4pm pacific. Don't know what time your other league is drafting, so if it's the same day, you might want to allow time so you're not doing 2 at once. That can get hectic LOL

You can have my spot in the Gray league (Link iat top of thread) if you want I am already in a few leagues, so you can have my spot.

Comment 02 Aug 2014

Rosenbuck, thanks for joining my Silver Bullet Buckeyes league!! Like I said if someone wants in the Gray league (free) and is shut out, I can step aside & they can have my spot. No problem.

If anyone else that is not in a league and wants in a 10 team league, there are 7 spots left. Draft is Aug 31st at 7pm est/4pm pacific. To join, here is the link https://yho.com/nfl?l=415733&k=8483844a042ea3bb

From Newark, my late grandparents used to camp at a campground next to a baseball field and river each summer in the 80's. Great memories, there.
