Monday night I came from behind to defeat my opponent by one point. Now, theree days later they make an adjustment in the score for my Miami defense and subtract 2 points! Instead of being in first place in the league I fall back to 3rd place! :rolleyes:

right and if the stat would have been recorded correctly on Sunday then you would have been in 3rd place tuesday morning like you rightfully should have been.
 
Does the tail wag the dog?

Corrections - did you get that part, it was wrong, they made it right - come from the NFL, not Yahoo.

More correctly, they come from STAT LLC, which compiles data for all the major team sports.

Post of the year here!!!
 
We had the same thing happen in our league last week. The adjustment to Isaac Bruce wasn't made until Thursday or Friday and because that guy lost, he fell to fourth, and I jumped up to 3rd. He wasn't too happy but, as commish, I had to remind him that, according to ESPN rules, adjustments can be made all the way to up to Saturday.

Sucks, but nothing to be done about it.

on the other hand, if you're the other guy, who now gets the win, you'd be doing this:pickle: :pickle: :unsure:
 
Don't remember the specifics of the changes, but mid season last year (or 06) I lost back to back to back on scoring changes. I was laughing/crying by the 3rd week of that run. Sometimes this hobby will just kick you in the nuts...and we just say "Thank you, may I have another!"

 
I disagree with a website change taking a victory. Its encumbent upon an owner to realize and protest this mistake, and the rule of thumb in all my leagues has been it has to be prior to the 1pm kickoff the following Sunday.

If Yahoo is going to make changes, what if in a month this Steeler defensive TD comes into play when you're in the playoffs? What is Yahoo's standard for adjustment? Too great a can of worms for them to nose into.

Changes almost always happen within a few days of the game...not weeks later.Also, every league I've ever been a part of (MANY) has had a rule in place making scores "final" prior to the next weeks games. Then, the fantasy score can't be changed regardless of any offcial stats change.
 
Jerry Yang did this to you just before resigning as Yahoo CEO. He's driven the stock price under $10 / share, and now he's driving down fantasy scores.

He's a bitter, bitter man.

this season I have seen more corrections adjust the outcome of games than ever before...

I have seen teams execute trades in keeper leagues based on selling their NOW talent for future.. only to have the Wednesday corrections reverse the outcome, and in some cases wrecking a possible playoff contender...

so lesson is, no trade accepting until Wednesday afternoon

Exactly, YOUR LEAGUE. My leagues too, and had the other owner raised this issue and the commish overturned it, I would have no problem. The tricky thing is when the League Managment service does it, and what is in THEIR constituion. In the unlikely event a scoring change happens after a week, or even in this time frame, in the fantasy playoffs? Thats why I don't like it, it opens up a whole can of worms.

What are you trying to say?The stat correction did not orginate from Yahoo. It came about because STATS LLC made a correction. They are the official compiler for the NFL and 233 other sports. In other words, anyone who relies on NFL statistics for fantasy football gets the data fromt he same place. Corrections are usually done on Wednesday.

What the OP is referring to (Miami losing credit for one sack) is a routine type correction that happens virtually EVERY WEEK.
