    Re: Trial League News - '06-07

    Wow, this is the definition of wackness. I have so many complaints after the first night arghhhhhhh. There is a button that recalculates the scores. I'll send something to customer support first before I make any changes. I'm fighting the urge of scrapping this piece of crap and moving all of the teams to Yahoo. Let's see how this week plays out. :(

    I LOVE the people in the league...the competition...the teams. The interface blows chunks. only 40% of the screen is useful information. the rest is ads and links to other games.

    Talking to Darth, I said Mole Evans was going to do good. I couldn't have picked him up because I'm desparate for C's. Luckily Bynum came thru with some nice numbers. One can only hope that the youngsters contributions will not go overlooked by the NBA conspiracy machine.

    Detteam! Detteam, I need a conspiracy theory cooked up on this one.

    Re: Trial League News - '06-07

    Alright, looks like its alright now. I get the feeling that we are acting as the guinea pigs this year. As of now they've improved the interface to be more similar to Yahoo where you can see the stats for players for each day. They've also added another link called team results that gives you a lot of statistical options. The real time stat feature seems really sucky compared to Yahoo as it looks like it only tells your entire teams stats real time versus each individual player. Hopefully, they fix that as well. Who knows...perhaps by week 2 we will have a serviceable product on our hands. (I'm wearing my optimism goggles)

    Oh, I wouldn't worry about Tater. He's under a lot of pressure seeing that after our matchup he will need to get my sneaker surgically removed from his back side.

    Motown,

    is there a way to look at a head-to-head breakdown between you and your opponent? i can't find this anywhere.

    Re: Trial League News - '06-07

    Yep.

    On the left hand side of the main page you should see the head to head matchups (SCORES & SCHED). Click on the scores to the right of the names to get a category breakdown between the two teams.

    Seems like an awkward place for this, but it works nonetheless.

    Unlike Yahoo, when you add a free agent the player is available the same day on NBA.com...very interesting.....

    Re: Trial League News - '06-07

    But IF I'm not mistaken, on NBA.com you need to set your lineup at least one day in advance, so really he wouldn't be available until the next day anyhow. So same difference.

    OK Mo, I'll shut up. For now... :pound::tape:

    Re: Trial League News - '06-07

    Good ole Trial League...

    has got the final scores screwed up.

    Why am I not suprised? lol.

    It appears that they treat commiting MORE turnovers as WINNING the category.

    Sad...just sad.

    FYI, I moved another one of my leagues that I commish from NBA.com to Yahoo and it took significantly less time than I expected. Yahoos interface for porting the rosters is very chic.

    So after a couple weeks of evaluation I've decided that.....

    If there is a general consensus to move to Yahoo, I'd be fine with that. There is one caveat though. We'd probably miss the first two weeks of the season getting everyone to sign back up. If you are sick of the insanity, post here if you'd be interested in us moving this thing over to Yahoo.

    I'm willing to stick it out at NBA.com as well if that is what the masses want, but at this point I think the technical difficulties might be outweighing the features.

    One can only do so much to dress up a rusty bucket.

    Re: Trial League News - '06-07

    I'm fine either way because I don't have a lot of time to invest in managing my team.

    But if you need some assistance with the legwork or organization for a move, let me know.

    Re: Trial League News - '06-07

    I wouldn't mind a move to Yahoo. I hate the NBA interface. I had already decided that I was going to spend considerablly less time managing the Trial League than the Advanced League simply because it was so annoying.

    However, if the majority wants to stay, I won't quit or anything. I'll just hold a huge grudge on anyone that votes to stay.:P

    I think that if we do decide to move, we should do it as soon as possible so that we affect as little of the season as we can.

    Assuming we do vote to jump ship, if I can be of any service during the big move, let me know.

    I'll start the move tonight.

    Look for invites.

    The faster you sign up the better.

    Let's bring the life back into this league! :)

    Re: Trial League News - '06-07

    So it was the turnovers huh? When I looked at the standings last night I was in first place and now all of sudden I see that I have dropped to second..:noidea:...hummmm, behind the commissioner.:bs: :laugh:

    It easier for me to manage from Yahoo, so I don't mind, so do what is necessary fix and move.
