The defensive scoring is something that should have been looked at. I'm not sure if that is their standard set up, if it is that's a site issue or the commish adjusted it.
Are you serious? ESPN is by far the easiest site to navigate. Yahoo's **** looks like a webpage from back in 01.

It all looked standard to me, but all I looked at was offense, since we agreed on no silly bonuses, I assumed that included any defensive bonuses(penalties) too. Not to mention, I don't think I've ever been in a league where you could get negative points for yards allowed, so I didn't even think to check.

That said, Its not like its his fault at all because I highly doubt he changed the scoring to be this way, just a weird ESPN default I guess.

I've used yahoo for the past 4 years and still hate the **** out of it. NFL.com is way better than it used to be as well, but ESPN is still the best IMO.

Yahoo has a different default scoring system on defense, I just looked it up. I think I can still change the scoring settings but feel like since we've played 2 weeks under the current system, we probably shouldn't change it.

Have not used Yahoo since last year but it was way better than this. Their game center scoreboard is one of the best out there. You're telling me ESPN's site doesn't look like it's from 01'?!?! Pulling stats on Yahoo is better. Plus they give you percent started and most added. ESPN has **** for everything else. To each their own I guess.

Changing it now, I would be for it as long as it didn't impact results . A few points here and there. Don't know if you are able to figure that out. I would hate to see someone lose a playoff game due to their defense going - 8.

I have never seen a scoring format giving negative points for yards allowed. Maybe a few negative points for points allowed.

If you guys in the future are looking for cheap Fantasy Sites. We are using My Fantasy League.com. I think it's $65 or less a year. You can customize everything on your own page. The skin, what information you want displayed first, ect. It has an ap that downloads to your computer for scoring as well. It even announces your team's scores. Any and every bit of Fantasy Info is in there. I just like how I can get all the info I want on the 1st page. Every owner can customize their log in.

Here is an example ....http://www10.myfantasyleague.com/2012/home/43618. They just used the basic set up on this one.

Nobody wants to lose because of the change either, gotta keep it.

You lose points for yards but you start out getting 5 points based on yards so you don't actually lose points until you give up over 500 yards

For the future, IMO you make a short presentation on why it is important to change and we vote, you should sell it to us good.

Yeah, I don't really care at this point. I looked at my other ESPN league and notice the yardage scoring is there too, so it must be their standard.

Really, in a 10 team league, we should all have stout DST's anyway. You start the Raiders or something, you take that risk.

I really don't care either... I'd probably be more against changing in, than in favor of changing it. It's our faults for not paying closer attention.

Not really, DST are inconsistent for the most part. At least in terms of fantasy points.

I don't care either way. Somebody is probably going to get dinged again. Seems like this is going to be a record setting year for points and yards on offense.

Ds and kickers are just a lottery. You never know who's gonna catch the breaks of getting handed the ball multiple times per game or who's line is gonna go to **** for a game for easy sacks.

I won my entire league one time due to an interception taken back for a touchdown with 2 minutes left in a game....you are right, its a total crap shoot. Hell I lost week 1 in my league this year because Nate Kaeding had 18 points!

And with just 18 minutes in the books so far tonight, HawksFan74 has got to be crossing his fingers that Bush can manage to get what Brown has already.

Sucka!

Actually the decision was between Brown and S Smith. Bush was going to play no matter what. We will find out tonight how that goes but it's not looking good.

Really? I would have started both of those guys over Smith all day, especially in a non-PPR.

I started Morris over Brown in another league. Don't see him matching this...

It was earlier today and I wasn't sure what was going on with Bradshaw.

Cam should be passing all 2nd half now. We shall see.

We will see indeed. I would have benched Maclin, even though he practiced today... Arizona defense has actually been pretty solid.

Sorry HawksFan74, but gotta rub it in... 130 total yards, and 2 TDs on your bench in favor of Steve Smith.



Actually, I'm not sorry, I'm just an ass.
