Does anyone out there know how to stop YouTube recommended videos from showing up after you watch a video? 

 

I'm a Commish and I like putting all types of video content in our league to keep things interesting and keep everyone engaged during the season.  But sometimes I watch player draft and season content I don't want anyone else to find out about.    

 

There use to be a box you could select within the share video feature that gave you the option to stop recommended videos from showing up after you watch a video.

 

Can anyone out there help? 

 

I'm not sure how you are sharing the videos, but the easiest thing to do would be to just create a separate gmail/youtube account and use that account to post videos with.

I did a search of this forum and did not see any one already covering this topic.  If I missed that it was already covered, sorry.

Anybody play double or triple headers each week in their scheduling??

 

A lot of times you end up playing an opponent that has a player that goes nuts (for ex. say LeGarrette Blount scoring 3 1-yd TD's last year for Detroit. I think he only had 5 TD's all year.) and you get beat as your opponent scores the most points that they will for the entire year.  If you played that opponent any other week of the season, your team would win.

We tried 'playing all' for a while, but coaches missed the trashing talking when going up against a specific opponent each week.

CBS allowed up to play two teams each week. So it took some of the sting out of playing the highest scoring team on a given week, as you had a chance to beat another team in the league on a given Sunday.

CBS is super expensive. Has anyone else found a fantasy software site that lets you play more than 1 team each week?  We would like to take some of the money CBS charges and get it back in the winners pool instead.

But so far, I haven't run into any software that allows this. - Thanks Rod

I don't think there's a free one that let's you do that. 

 

I know MFL you can do it also, but it's also a laid league and I think it might cost more than CBS. 

 

You'd have to Google prices honestly. Yahoo doesn't do that. I don't think sleeper does it YET, but if you tweet at them it seems they'll do anything anyone asks.

Great suggestion!  Why didn't I think of that?  Should solve the problem.

one of the players in my league cannot make or attend our live draft this year. In exchange he wants another manager, preferably his brother to draft for him. I as the commish said no, but a lot of people in the league are saying I should allow it. How would yall handle this situation?

Why would you not allow it?  I'd think you'd want to have every team represented in the draft. 

How would you handle it if there was no one there for that team?

Just do it manually...

every team is not necessarily represented, 2 teams are then represented by 1 manager. I should've mentioned his brother is an owner in the league too

Of course every team is represented.  You just said it yourself: one manager represents two teams.  What do you propose happening?  Kicking him out of the league?

pick a ranking and auto-draft by it, or chose a person no currently in the league to draft for him?

Might be easiest of you just put it to a league vote and go with their decision.  

I wouldn't have an issue with this as a league member or Commish.

Ah...that does change things a little for me.  I'd tell him to find a different proxy or he'll be auto drafted.

Okay, reading further messages does change it for me as well (as from the initial post, I didn't see any issue). But now that you've added the info that his brother (proxy) is already in the league, well that's a definite issue. I know for sure my leagues would not allow one person to draft for two different teams. I agree that he needs to find a different proxy.

To me this depends how hard-core you all are about fantasy and how much you trust him or his brother. Personally I wouldn't be wild about it but I wouldn't "forbid" it if he couldn't find anyone else, but then we all know each other well enough to trust other owners plus we're active owners but fantasy isn't life or death to us, we do it mostly for fun not the money or whatever. Drafting from an ADP seems fair, but unless you have some good software to handle that, would be a pain.
