    I am the commissioner of the league EB is pulling this off in and I have no problem with it. It is a smart strategy/competitive advantage in my opinion. If yahoo allows it then I can't tell him he can't do it, at least not in the middle of the playoffs. That is something I feel would need to be addressed in the offseason. The only catch to this is EB should change his name to Slimy Lou Lamoreillo hahahaha.

    Fair enough!

    I'll update the thread at the end of the week with whether I actually ended up getting an extra game out of it or not.

    Must be league setting dependent then but I'm pretty sure it's like that in all three leagues I'm in.

    Yes I use this method. I wanted to rotate Phaneuf and Faksa all week but they both came off IR+ so I had to go to plan B. I picked up Edmondson, slid him onto IR+ then added Borowiecki on Sunday. I have Borowiecki playing 4 games Monday-Saturday, and I hope to drop him for a healthy Joel Edmondson (currently on my IR+) spot start on Sunday. Unfortunately wasn't able to find two good dtd players to rotate the whole week, but this method will spare me one of my precious 4 adds per week.

    The moral of the story here is Yahoo is broken and can be exploited in so many ways.

    I don't see the issue, anyone in your league has access to this "loophole" if they figure it out.

    Just curious - have you even tried to do this? I took a look at the fantrax settings, and I don't see an obvious setting that would allow this to be turned off. I'm in 3 different fantrax leagues, with three different commissioners, and this tactic works in all 3 of them.

    yeah theres a different setting that can be utilized compared to black&blue league but I've never really given it a really good experiment in this other league I'm in .

    all I know is I'll check roster randomly in the afternoon for a final touch up and holy shit its showing illegal due to someone being in an IR spot for too long but first thing in the morning it was showing legal .

    I would think the disadvantage of the setting Rob uses would be if a GM needed to set lines for an extended period because of vacation (without internet access) and his team became illegal halfway through the week .

    I'll ask Rob what setting it is.
