I do apologize for the late update.
This past week has been a fantasy hell.
It appears a representative grew tired of my repeated requests for resolution and decided to lock my 15-year old account.
I’ve been trying to sort this out since last Friday and the closest I’ve come to an explanation is that my account was locked due to an old inactive Yahoo! chat ID that contained inappropriate language.
Anyway, needless to say, I am very upset to have one of my fantasy seasons ending prematurely in a game I have had fun documenting over the past couple of years.
I am still in touch with Yahoo! but the previous representative told me they were unable to locate my league despite giving them the correct league ID# and password.
Holding out hope but my hopes are slim.
Some arbitrary bullshit.
Leaves a bad taste in the mouth when you get burned by a platform you’ve been championing for years.
Regardless, the series will continue with posts pertaining to my official team.
If I manage to get my team back in the Y! game, I will likely resume posting recaps for that format as well, even though my season has been effectively ruined.
But until then, my apologies to those of you who were following along with me.
Oh, by the way, 2-3 months is our new holy grail.
F.U. Shad Forsythe aka the saboteur.
This was just a brutal week and my feelings are still hurt over the Yahoo! thing so let’s keep it movin’.

Damn, that makes me sad.
Anyway, you can see that I was forced to play my wildcard in the official format as I had 5 inactive players either through injury or suspension.
But it was Dusan Tadic and his 1-goal / 3-assist who I was most upset to have lost out on.
It’s a shame that you can only add a maximum of three players from each club but it adds to the strategy.
Make no mistake, though – Tadic has season keeper potential.
And I fear for the out-of-form Arsenal as they travel to the Stadium of Light.
How did you make out in Gameweek 8???
