With all of the technology available, you should be able to deal with 'in game' injuries. Nothing is more frustrating than having your position player go down in the first quarter and not be able to replace him like they do in real life!
Any thoughts on this?? Thanks.
A friend of mine runs a league where they do something like this. Each week the owners submit a bench player at each position to the commissioner before the games. If a player is injured during his game they have the option of replacing the score. Choosing the players ahead of time avoids the problem Hal mentioned of giving an advantage to the guy sitting by his device. It also avoids the problem of timing - for example if your RB is injured on Monday night, you could still replace the score with your bench player who played on Sunday because you chose all of it before the games.
This could be done on flea via the message board and commish editing the scores.
That's a good idea Troy. I could never have thought of that angle on this issue that bugs the hell out of me. You should be in my league with ideas like that!! I have an opening if you're interested and not already obligated to too many other leagues!! Thanks for the response.
It is a tricky situation there. It gives players who are watching a game or by a device/computer when something happens a one-sided competitive advantage. Something we will think about. Thanks.
I'm not sure I see the 'one-sided' advantage if a 1st team RB is replaced by a backup RB. The other team can do the same thing if needed. Am I missing something here? Either way, thanks for the response and have some meetings about this subject if possible!! Regards.
