PostSubject: Lineups   Fri Sep 16, 2016 7:10 pm

So, discovered a little factoid that I wasn't aware of with MFL.

If you trade a player on Friday, that played the Thursday game, you CANNOT change your lineup. This wouldn't be a big deal, but here, it cost real money to fuckup.

I had a surprise out last week. Found it when I checked my lineup Saturday night.

So Andy, what happens if someone gets a player with an "O" and can't fix it due to a trade?

Can we fix this by temporarily trading back and having Andy input a roster?

Interesting. Whenever I tried swapping someone else, I get the Big Red message of Death.

Not real worried about, unless one of the "Q's" changes to an "O". I just thought it was interesting, since I don't remember trying it in the past.

I'm probably not understanding the situation properly cuz I just woke up and was doing a bit of beer last night but if it's just a dumb MFL thing getting in the way of a common sense move then at the very least one could shoot me an email and I would be able to make the change for you.

Something to take into account obviously is that if a players game has already occurred then they are locked in/out of your lineup which I'm sure you already knew.

Let me know if there is something I need to do. Common sense shall rule the day.

It isn't an issue for me but this is what I think happened. Bob started Williams. Then traded him the next day. Williams is now in my roster and not Bob's. So he is having trouble setting a lineup because he can't put in Williams and MFL won't let him at a new lineup without Williams.

This has happened in other leagues in the past. The solution then was to trade the player that had been in the line-up back to the original team until the week's games are over. Then trade him back again on Tuesday.

It doesn't affect anything - Russ can't pick him to start as he's already played - and Bob will have control over his line-up again.

Surely MFL has a solution for this by now. Thursday games are way too common to have this issue still.

The only mfl option that I know is to prevent guys from being traded after they play their game. But that's not much help with Thursday games.

That's shit. This eliminates what, 5 days out of the week?

Now I'm awake and get it. Just trade the one player back so lineups can be done and then trade him again. It's a bummer that MFL hasn't solved this but it's easy enough to negotiate.

Don't forget to delete the transactions after the week is over so they aren't counted as actual trades.
