Just looking at some of the players in the database in a newly formed league -- almost no one has dual eligibility. For instance, Love, Duncan and Favors all only classify as PF's. :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t

Now it's getting dangerously close to just giving Yahoo the shaft. :-[


yeah im hoping they fix some of the position eligibility issues, noticed that right away as well. Will make drafting for position scarcity a lot more common if they stick with it.

I think I'm still a Yahoo lifer, love it or hate it...

Buser seems to think there might be some sort of error. At least that's what I'm hoping for... :-o

I don't remember the NBA.com requirement last season. :-? Well, anyway, I just changed it on my team settings after registering, but I didn't like seeing that requirement at the beginning/registration page. It's stoopid.

Can't understand why their dark layout strains my eyes so much. I use dark backgrounds occasionally in firefox. But here it's like my eyes can't focus on anything.

I don't understand. It was wonderful the way it has been for the last few years and certainly did not need to "improved". It hurts my eyes and just plain sucks donkey balls.

It's just funny that every time I hit a page that hasn't been updated yet, my immediate response is "ah, that's nice!", but I know it's short lived...

Someone posted this over at basketballmonster (so perhaps you've already seen it), but I thought it was an interesting read. While I knew some of this, I didn't know Mayer's background and gives us some interesting perspective on possibly explaining why we might be seeing some of the re-designing. Maybe. O:-)
