Must be because they lost Samsung as the DL sponsor. :lol:

Well it is at least good to know it is a problem for other leagues as well. I thought maybe my computer had some goofy issue.


Now working, have added all my requests - get clicking! :)

This site is a nightmare. I can't add any team members. Every time I click on a name it just returns me to the top of the screen.

Anyone else having the same problem?

It is annoying that you return to the top but the athletes actually add to your list don't they?

I redid all of mine last night and they added easily enough even though it took you back to the top each time. To make it easier you can shoose to look at the Men or Women separately which at least halves the amount of names you have to wade through.

Some of these problems....it's like it would've *more* effort to code it in such an annoying fashion, than to make it user-friendly.

I strongly agree with this. Especially later in the season when you could actually use it to you advantage if you are one of the leaders.

Yes, thanks, I know.
I just wonder how official results would have been shown (and, consequently, how fantasy points would have been calculated) if, for example, winning HJ height will be 2.30 (real MR is 2.33, MR at start lists - both html and pdf - is 2.28).

I also do not see that the WR would be extra rewarded. Am I missing it?

Athletes who achieve a Meeting Record will also receive double points in that event while anyone who sets a new World Record will earn triple points in that event.

Another question. Previous years, if we chose athlete who competed in two events, we received total of his/her points accumulated in those two events. Any changes this year? I'm asking because Okagbare is on start lists for LJ and 200m, I can pick her for LJ, but she is not on fantasy list for 200m, so if I pick her from LJ list, will I receive her 200m points or not?

Good question. She wasn't on 200m list 2 days ago.

Great, so already I will be last as I missed the transfer deadline! :evil:

I hope they do the same as other years where it doesn't count your lowest scoring meet. This just means I have to be more spot on now

So back to the old issue. Does a meeting record count if you finish out of 1st place but with an =MR. Such as HJ might.

170, not great, but not so bad. I'm only regreting my captain choice, it was between Rudisha and Sandra, picked Rudisha because I wasn't sure how good is Sandra at the moment (she split with her old coah few months ago, new one is Edis Elkasević) i.e. is she capable of MR. Now I know :)

Two hesitations that cost me a lot of points; Hoffa instead Whiting and Bashrim instead Perkovic as captain.
