In Topic: Message Board Email flagged as Spam?

26 August 2020 - 02:50 PM

Emails from MFL like any other will from time to time be flagged as spam by various email providers.  In this case most likely GoDaddy since that is where the mail is going.  Thus those owners should configure their email spam filters on their servers to allow MFL emails.

 

Happens all the time, and has for 20 years.  Nothing new here.  Everyone once in a while even gmail will flag them as spam.  Is what it is.


In Topic: How to Handle Possible Covid Canceled/Rescheduled Games?

20 August 2020 - 06:55 PM

All my leagues have decided to just not play at all this year, just too much crazyness to put money up for it.

 

However, the most popular solution before deciding to throw in the towel was to go best ball with very deep rosters.  Doesn't help much with keeper or dynasty leagues, but for redraft that is a viable option.


In Topic: Covid IR slots?

03 August 2020 - 07:38 PM

Just to note...all my leagues have decided to suspend this year and not play.  It's just too much of a mess to every try to bother with it (at least all of us agree in my leagues).  Just like you're seeing in MLB, you're going to have cancelled games, forfeits, lots of players in quarantine.  We're just not going to deal with it and taking a year off.

 

I wish you all good luck!


In Topic: alternative to ZOOM ?

15 July 2020 - 10:14 AM

Been using Google Hangouts for years with my one remote owner.  Take a laptop or Chromebook to the bar, connect with remote owner, connect to one of the TVs via HDMI, run draft with him on Hangout for 6+ hours.  No problem.

 

Would be perfectly fine for all remote as well.


In Topic: Covid IR slots?

05 July 2020 - 05:54 PM

Bit late to the thread, but I'm not really seeing an issue here at all.  If  a player is out due to Covid, the team will list them as OUT just like any other reason (knee, arm, leg, illness).  So I'm not seeing an issue??

 

So it's really up to your league I guess on how many IR spots you allow and so forth.  Personally in my league we allow unlimited IR (I just don't care if you have 20 guys on IR) and only for players listed as IR or OUT.

 

Now there could be an issue if you only allow 1 IR slot or IR only.  But is this really any different if the flu goes thru a team?  Not really, unless they do mandatory 14 day quarantine or something.  But if that starts happening then we have much greater issues such as the whole team out for 2 weeks, games cancelled, the teams they played the last 2 weeks also now out for 2 weeks.  Basically a huge mess.

 

Honestly I'm really thinking about just cancelling the fantasy season and freezing all rosters (keeper league).  We are a "big money" league so the above scenario, which will happen, will be really unfair to a bunch of owners.  And instead just do a one year redraft for just a couple bucks and call it good.  Then if it all blows up, no fuss no muss.
