Maize & Blue Regret Tracker
-Maize & Blue was not able to win even though only 5 of their 10 starters fell short of their projected point total.
That's pretty cool. I haven't been on yahoo since 04 i switched in 05 because ESPN had free live scoring and yahoo didn't. And now the league I run has been on it so long all our history is saved so there's no reason to switch.
I loved to read them even though it put another needle in the piss poor performance of my two teams. In both recaps it was said that my bench was more effective than my starters... :help:
Pretty cool feature.
I like Yahoo telling me how I left AP and his 21.52 points on the bench and still won. My team is sick.
