    Sorry I actually glanced at the excluded list and didn't notice his name there thinking that his first name was Rondo:). Honest mistake, I took Telfair instead who is probably playing better than Rondo anyway. Had to drop MJames as he was just sitting on the Rockets bench the last 2 games...

    I didn't even think to look for him on the exclude list. I'll straighten it out by Sunday evening. Sorry.

    Yeah, you would think he would have been available, but he was pimped quite highly by the experts coming into the season.

    thanks.

    Wow it took me a while to find this thread. I knew we had one for scrubs league discourse.

    So I just want to whine, OK? I hate that this is a weekly league. I really do. I have not forgotten to set lineups except one Monday in Novice League. But for the life of me I cannot remember to set this weekly lineup on Sundays. Consequently, on three different weeks I have ended up with injured guys from the previous week (Ronnie Brewer and Linus Kleiza) stuck on the bench for the entire next week. There is just something about it being weekly instead of daily that messes me up. I keep thinking it is weekly with the deadline on Monday.Sigh. Anyway it is seriously messing me up in Scrubs when I have starters sitting on the bench and bench players playing every game that week.

    EXTREMELY IRRITATING. I dropped from second place to fourth because I had a lame lineup. Okay that's all the whining for now. Stay tuned.

    P.S. When IS the deadline for weekly lineups anyway? Sunday when? Thanks.

    The deadline is Sunday night Midnight Pacific Time. (Can someone on the East coast confirm whether it is Midnight Eastern or 3am Eastern?) It is definitely Midnight Pacific over here.

    The main reason this is a weekly lineup setting is because most of the people who were interested in the league only would've played this way.

    The consesus was a 'Low-maintenance league' which meant Weekly lineups. To be honest, that's how it has gone so far considering the small amount of moves people are making (or perhaps I just have a shoddy team and require lots of changes) :MusicBigGrin:

    Next season if I come back as Commish I will make a Poll/s with questions such as 'Weekly or Daily' and 'Sunday or Monday' lineup deadline, but the consesus prior to the start of this league is what you currently have in place.

    Thanks for the feedback though.

    Right now I only check it 2-3 times a week. On Sunday and a couple of times midweek. But I could have lived with a daily league

    I like weekly. I don't get the complaint...if you are willing to keep tabs and play daily, how is playing weekly a problem? You don't have to set your lineup on Sunday...you can do it days in advance.

    I haven't changed my lineup since the first week after the draft, and my team is in second place.

    My Novice League team, where I set the lineups weekly I'm in last place.

    I think I finally got my legs in this league over the past few weeks, but alas...too little, too late. Barring a miracle, all I can do now is play spoiler to playoff positions :gun1:

    Good luck to all in the post season :)

    this is my 2nd victory in a row in a scrubs league- I'm glad I was able to confirm my last year's title (we had the draft a little bit too late as the season had already started and I got to pick first and took Kevin Martin)!
    Although this victory was somehow bittersweet too, since the final result was 4-4 and I probably only won because of the regular season.

    well done. thats 2 straight years you've beaten me in the final.
